Low-carbon hydrogen holds one of the most promising solutions for hard-to-decarbonize industries, including steel, cement and chemical production. Air Liquide is partnering with world-leading producers in these industries to use hydrogen to pioneer and bring to scale innovative solutions to decarbonize their production. Hydrogen plays a key role in the transition to a clean, low-carbon energy system. In steel production, hydrogen can be used as a CO₂ emission-free reducing agent for iron ore. Air Liquide has expertise in the entire hydrogen value chain, from production through storage to the development of end user applications. Air Liquide produces air gases, hydrogen and carbon monoxide through proprietary state-of-the-art technologies for the chemicals industry. We are the ideal partner for bringing projects to fruition and for developing customized gas and energy solutions that respond to customer needs.

Hydrogen Cavern
