A blue energy island combines syngas production from a hydrocarbon, air separation, ammonia synthesis and carbon capture and storage. It is a fully integrated process where the outputs of each unit operation are fully utilised within the process or result in products that can readily be exported from the site. The result is climate-friendly, energy efficient production of clean energy vectors.
Industrial gases companies are pioneering the development of blue energy islands through their expertise in core technologies such as gas compression, purification, separation and hydrocarbon reforming.
Integrated utility islands
One of the world’s largest integrated hydrogen, steam and power generation projects has been executed by Air Products at Saudi Aramco’s Jazan refinery in south-eastern Saudi Arabia. More than a dozen gasifiers produce syngas from a heavy refinery residue.
