Technip Energies and Casale Join Forces for Cutting-Edge Blue Hydrogen Technology
Technip Energies and Casale have announced a new partnership aimed at jointly licensing oxidative reforming-based technologies, specifically autothermal reforming (ATR) and partial oxidation (POx) technologies for the blue hydrogen market. ATR is a process that produces syngas, which contains hydrogen, carbon monoxide (CO), and carbon dioxide (CO2). When combined with carbon capture technology, ATR can become cost-effective for low-carbon hydrogen production, making it suitable for larger-scale facilities.
Under this collaboration, Technip Energies and Casale will serve as co-licensors of the technology and will offer a comprehensive package that includes Process Design Package (PDP), proprietary equipment, and entire plants. The ATR-based solution has the potential to achieve up to 99% carbon capture rate, making it a promising option for decarbonizing hydrogen facilities.
Technip Energies' two centers of excellence for hydrogen, located in Claremont, CA, USA, and Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, will work together with Casale to develop PDP for ATR-based blue hydrogen projects.
Loic Chapuis, SVP Gas & Low Carbon Energies of Technip Energies, expressed excitement about the partnership, stating, "We are excited to announce this partnership with Casale, which will allow us to offer cutting-edge ATR-based solutions for the blue hydrogen market. By leveraging our global leadership in hydrogen, having delivered more than 30% of the installed capacity worldwide, with our combined proprietary technologies, we are confident that we can provide advanced and cost-effective solutions that will meet the needs of our customers. ATR-based solutions will be complementary to T.EN's proprietary SMR-based solutions, allowing us to offer a complete range of solutions in the low-carbon hydrogen market. We look forward to working with Casale to drive innovation and decarbonize hydrogen production at scale."
Federico Zardi, CEO of Casale SA, also expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, saying, "We are delighted to enter this partnership with Technip Energies, a global leader in hydrogen plants. This partnership can provide the market with advanced solutions for the decarbonization of the world, leveraging our long history of developing and applying advanced ATR and POx technologies with several ATR-based mega production units already delivered, in combination with Technip Energies' technological expertise in the hydrogen field."
By combining Technip Energies' and Casale's expertise in hydrogen technologies, this partnership aims to drive innovation in the blue hydrogen market and contribute to the decarbonization of hydrogen production on a large scale.
