LG Chem has selected Technip Energies’s proprietary blue hydrogen technology to supply its plant in Daesan, South Korea.
The Blue H2 by T.EN hydrogen plant will capture a significant amount of carbon dioxide, and reduce carbon emissions from the petrochemical complex. LG Chem intends to utilise the captured CO2.
The 56,000 Nm3/h capacity hydrogen plant will utilize Technip Energies’ proprietary steam reforming technology to convert methane-rich offgas from the naphtha cracking process into hydrogen. The hydrogen plant will include a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit for control of NOx emissions.
The new hydrogen unit will be integrated with LG Chem’s naphtha cracking complex (NCC) to allow LG Chem to convert the petrochemical pyrolysis complex to a more sustainable low-carbon process.
Loic Chapuis, SVP Gas & Low Carbon Energies of Technip Energies, stated: “Our technology has been proven to reduce carbon emissions by up to 99% and has the flexibility to be tailored for various applications in industry.”
