Transitioning to new energies
In a world where energy needs and sources are changing rapidly, the ability to transform organic resources into renewable and totally carbon-free energy is poised to become part of the new energy mix. The energy produced in this way offers the advantage of being easy to store and responsive to the need for sustainable heating and clean transportation in modern societies.
Natural Gas for passenger vehicles
The issues of climate changes and the need for an energy transition have been making headlines for several years. The public has recognized the need to shift to a new energy mix, where clean and renewable energies have their place. Air Liquide is aware of these issues and is working actively on providing clean transportation solutions.
Hydrogen energy for vehicles
The world of energy is in the midst of deep change and hydrogen is one of the solutions that offer a response to the challenges of clean transportation: reducing greenhouse gas emissions, pollution in our cities, and dependency on oil-based fuels. Air Liquide is actively involved in setting up this industry and enabling the widespread use of hydrogen as a clean energy.
Hydrogen energy for the aerospace industry
In order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and kerosene in particular, clean and sustainable alternative energies must be found. Air Liquide is applying its hydrogen expertise to the aerospace industry and developing more environmentally friendly solutions.
Natural Gas for heavy-duty vehicles
Amid growing environmental awareness and with consumers increasingly sensitive to poor air quality in cities, the transportation sector has to undergo rapid and profound change. In Europe, 20% of CO2 emissions originate from road transportation. Despite some improvements in fuel consumption efficiency in recent years, these emissions are still rising, mainly due to increasing road freight traffic. Air Liquide wants to help road transportation companies to significantly cut their polluting emissions.
In a world where energy needs and sources are changing rapidly, the ability to transform organic resources into renewable and carbon-free energy is poised to become part of the new energy mix. Energy produced this way has the advantage of being easy to store, either in gaseous or liquid form, and easily available for sustainable heating and clean transportation. To this end, Air Liquide is actively working to develop biogas solutions.
Air Liquide is a committed stakeholder across the full span of the biomethane value chain for a sustainable transport, from biogas supply and purification for biomethane production (which can be directly injected into the gas network) to distribution to the final client with bioNGV or clean multi-energy stations.
In a world where the reduction of carbon emissions is a daily challenge for everyone, Air Liquide is working on developing innovative technologies and solutions for reducing carbon emissions during the hydrogen production process. Although hydrogen is mainly used today for industrial purposes in chemistry and refinery, it is increasingly used in other sectors, such as clean transportation.
Liquefied Natural Gas
LNG is a clean alternative energy solution for remote sites with heat or energy production needs. As a pioneer of LNG, and an expert in cryogenics, Air Liquide is uniquely positioned to supply a complete solution to supply, store and dispense this energy.
The liquefaction of biomethane appears to offer an effective solution for the logistical constraints that arise in the absence of transportation network. In its liquid form, biomethane is easily transportable to its point of use.
Sustainable solutions for oil & gas industries
Upstream and midstream players in the oil & gas sectors are experiencing market and regulatory pressure to reduce their environmental footprint. Air Liquide offers a multitude of solutions in this field to help these companies meet their regulatory requirements as well as reducing their environmental footprint.
Air Liquide distributes solutions both for hydrogen energy production and hydrogen charging station. Are you looking for a way to increase the productivity and range of your fleet of captive electric vehicles? With lower operational costs and longer runtime between charges, hydrogen energy forklifts can meet your needs.
