That is why Air Products is investing heavily in building a net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton,” said Ghasemi. “The vast natural resources of the region, paired with the vision of Canada’s leadership and its highly-skilled workforce will help Canada be a leader in the clean energy future. Canada’s vision meshes well with Air Products’ higher purpose to collaborate and innovate solutions to the world’s most significant energy and sustainability challenges.”
Ghasemi is one of three Air Products’ executives scheduled to speak at the two-day event.

Convention attendees are invited to stop by Air Products’ booth #414 on the exhibit floor to learn more about Air Products’ net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton and the company’s hydrogen for mobility solutions.
Air Products and its subsidiary, Air Products Canada Ltd., in conjunction with the Government of Canada and the Province of Alberta in 2021 announced a multi-billion plan to build a landmark new net-zero hydrogen energy complex that will make Edmonton, Alberta the centre of western Canada’s hydrogen economy and set the stage for Air Products to operate the most competitive and lowest-carbon-intensity hydrogen network in the world.
The project begins with a previously announced transformative $1.3 billion (CAD) net-zero hydrogen production and liquefaction facility expected to be onstream in 2024. The project relies on an innovative combination of well-established technologies to jump-start an ambitious transition to carbon neutrality.
As the world’s largest hydrogen producer, Air Products has experience across the full value chain for hydrogen and is driving sustainable growth by building, owning and operating the world’s largest production, gasification, carbon capture, transportation and fueling projects. The company’s technologies are used in over 1.5 million refuelings annually across 20 countries. With over 60 years of global hydrogen experience operating in over 50 countries, Air Products has the proven capability and know-how to make hydrogen through all available production methods and to distribute this increasingly important emission-free fuel safely, reliably, and economically.
