Steam Methane Reforming with Cryocap™ H2
Cryocap™ uses a cryogenic process involving low temperatures to separate gases. Cryocap™ can be adapted to specific applications combining a variety of Air Liquide’s technologies such as the capture of CO₂ from Hydrogen production units (Cryocap™ H₂) or from other industries (Refining, steel, cement,...) concentrated flue gases (Cryocap™ FG) or from Oxy Combustion power stations (Cryocap™ Oxy).
Cryocap technology can support customers to capture up to 90% of the CO₂ of a Steam Methane Reformer while boosting the H₂ production by up to 20%.
Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) from Air Liquide Engineering & Construction is used to recover and purify hydrogen from a variety of hydrogen-rich streams. The technology relies on differences in the adsorption properties of gases to separate them under pressure, and is an effective way of producing very pure hydrogen up to purity of 99.9999%.
