Air Products expands syngas separation unit in Louisiana

LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products signed an agreement to expand its existing syngas separation unit (SSU) in Geismar, Louisiana to increase the supply of carbon monoxide (CO). The increased capacity of CO is mainly for the supply of BASF’s publicly-announced world-scale formic acid plant to be built at BASF’s Geismar Verbund site.

The facility expansion will also provide Air Products increased hydrogen production for sale to refinery and petrochemical customers along its vast Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline network system, and will further support filling of bulk CO tube trailers from its existing Geismar transfill facility. The incremental SSU expansion is expected to commence operations in the second quarter of 2014.
