Nouvelles des membres de l'IIF: Air Liquide

Air Liquide, membre bienfaiteur de l'IIF, a récemment inauguré Cryocap, une installation industrielle innovante qui permet la captation du CO2 produit pendant la production d'hydrogène grâce à un procédé cryogénique.
Air Liquide – benefactor member of the IIR – inaugurated in November 2015 Cryocap™, a unique industrial installation that enables the capture of CO2 released during hydrogen production via a cryogenic process.
Connected toAir Liquide’s largest hydrogen production unit in France, located in Notre-Dame-de-Gravenchon (Normandy), France, Cryocap™ represents an investment of around EUR 30 million.

Cryocap™ is the first CO2 capture technology using a cryogenic process. Cryocap™ enables the capture of CO2 emissions resulting from the production of hydrogen by natural gas reforming, while improving efficiency, leading to an increased hydrogen production.
After being purified, the captured CO2 can be used to meet a variety of industrial needs for carbonic gas supply (carbonation of sparkling beverages, food preservation and freezing, etc.).
The Cryocap™ unit has an annual capture capacity of 100,000 tonnes of CO2 at this site.
