Air Products announced plans to build a new liquid hydrogen plant at its La Porte, Texas, industrial gas facility to meet increasing product demand from several markets. The facility will produce approximately 30 tons per day and will draw its hydrogen to be liquefied from Air Products’ existing Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline system network. Once liquefied at La Porte, the hydrogen will be delivered to customers in industries including metals and electronics. The plant is scheduled to be on-stream in 2021.

Air Products also has liquid hydrogen production plants operating in New Orleans, La.; Sacramento, Calif.; Sarnia, Ontario; and Rotterdam, Netherlands.
