Sustainable Offerings

We help customers improve their sustainability performance through higher productivity, better quality products, reduced energy use, and lower emissions.

Trees merging in skyAir Products’ business strategy is to provide sustainable solutions to customers and help them achieve their objectives. We are driven by an important ambition: to innovate alongside our customers and help them be more sustainable. We aim to produce products that improve energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and address societal needs such as health, safety and improving quality of life. In 2020, 57% of revenues were derived from sustainable offerings, exceeding our goal of 50%.

We are committed to enabling our customers to enhance their sustainability. We track our progress through customer avoided CO₂ emissions that our customers and their customers would otherwise emit if not for the products we produce and supply. In 2020, we enabled 72 million metric tons of CO₂e to be avoided, which is approximately equivalent to the emissions from 16 million cars and three times our own direct and indirect CO₂ emissions.

In 2020, we set a new goal to annually increase the total CO₂ emissions avoided by our customers and their customers.
  

Products that Benefit Our Customers Around the World


Oxy-fuel Technology

Oxyfuel furnaceAir Products’ oxy-fuel combustion technologies are used in energy-intensive applications like cement, metals, and glass manufacturing to increase production, lower fuel use and costs, reduce emissions and optimize efficiency. Air Products has been a leader in oxy-fuel technology since it was first introduced over 50 years ago and continues to help customers improve operations and efficiency through new burner designs and performance testing at our world-class combustion laboratory facilities.


Gasification

Gasification PlantGasification plants typically convert low-value fossil feedstocks like coal and petcoke to useful chemicals and energy while significantly reducing pollutants like sulfur oxides that are harmful to human health. The process produces carbon dioxide as a by-product that can be easily captured in a concentrated form, providing a pathway to reduce emissions where market conditions support carbon sequestration or utilization. New gasification technologies continue to emerge, opening routes to alternative feedstocks such as sustainable biomass and the use of waste materials in support of the circular economy.


Hydrogen

Hydrogen PlantHydrogen is used to refine heavier, sour crudes, increase refinery yields and reduce emissions through the production of cleaner transportation fuels including ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel and hydrogen powered electric fuel cell vehicles.

Many other industries such as electronics, food, glass, chemicals, and more also benefit from hydrogen’s unique properties to improve quality, optimize performance, and reduce costs. As the world's largest provider of hydrogen, Air Products operates over 110 hydrogen plants, including some with liquefaction capabilities, and which have the equivalent of a combined 1,500 years of operating experience. In many cases, we provide hydrogen from pipeline systems around the globe, including the world’s largest hydrogen pipeline network and system located in the U.S. Gulf Coast.



Modified Atmosphere Packaging and Freshline® Solutions

MAP FoodGases for MAP and Freshline® solutions use high-purity gases and equipment to extend the shelf life of food, improve taste, reduce waste, and help to keep production cost down. The research and development team at Air Products has been at the forefront of food freezing for over 50 years, pioneering cryogenic technology, and continuing to push the boundaries of efficiency and versatility while working to ensure safety and hygiene.



Helium

mriHelium and our high purity medical gases help sustain life. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is enabled by helium, which is used to keep MRI magnets cold and superconducting. Helium is also valued as a gas for lifting, breathing, leak detection, space exploration, semiconductor manufacturing, scientific applications, and shielding. It has unique properties that optimize performance and productivity, reduce labor costs, and improve safety. As a leading producer and supplier of helium, Air Products has pioneered many of the helium extraction, production, distribution, and storage technologies still in use – including cryogenic equipment for most of the world's helium recovery plants.



Hydrogen for Mobility

Hydrogen MobilityHydrogen can be used in many different types of transportation, either in a fuel cell or an internal combustion engine, to eliminate or significantly reduce emissions. Our hydrogen fueling station technology provides complete fueling infrastructure from supply to dispensing for fuel cell vehicles and is used in 1.5 million hydrogen fills per year. Air Products is at the forefront of hydrogen energy technology development. Cars, trucks, vans, buses, scooters, forklifts, locomotives, planes, cell towers, material handling equipment, and even submarines have been fueled with our technologies.



LNG Process Technology and Equipment

LNGThe use of LNG continues to increase with strong energy demands in growing economies. Air Products’ LNG technology and equipment enable the efficient and economic production and transport of this critical energy resource, including from stranded energy sources around the globe. More LNG is produced using Air Products’ mixed component refrigerant and liquefaction processes than any other processes, with over 100 LNG trains currently in operation. We manufacture this efficient and reliable equipment at our state-of-the-art facility in Florida.
