Decarbonising heavy duty vehicles and industry
By producing and distributing clean hydrogen energy solutions for use in heavy-duty fuel cell vehicles, industrial applications and energy storage, Air Products will help support the hydrogen energy transition, minimising carbon emissions and reducing reliance on finite energy resources. Hydrogen will play a crucial role in diversifying energy sources and ensuring the security of energy supply in a sustainable and responsible way for the production of hydrogen.
We are actively pursuing hydrogen projects in Europe, complemented by export-driven projects in regions of the world where the conditions are good for the reliable production of the renewable electricity needed for the production of hydrogen. An example of the latter is the NEOM Green Hydrogen Project. Scheduled to be onstream in 2026 and with an intended production of up to 600 tons per day of carbon-free hydrogen in the form of green ammonia, this is the leading large-scale green hydrogen project. Europe was identified as an attractive destination for a substantial proportion of the project’s production for use in the decarbonization of heavy-duty vehicles and industry. REPowerEU has increased the importance to the EU of first-mover projects like NEOM.
In addition, given the urgency of reaching net-zero emissions, blue hydrogen is also well placed to support the European Energy Transition. Air Products is the global leader in capturing CO₂ before it reaches the atmosphere. Our technology is built on more than 70 years experience, covering advanced CO₂ separation, purification and transportation.
Driving the transition through partnerships
We cannot do this alone so we continue to work closely with European policy makers and partners who have committed to making hydrogen a reality. Policies supporting blue hydrogen and renewable hydrogen produced in domestic electrolysers and from imported renewable energy will speed up the development of the European hydrogen economy, encouraging the broad implementation of technologies in which Air Products, with its 60 years of history, is a globally recognised specialist.
