Louisiana Clean Energy
This $4.5 billion project is Air Products’ largest investment in the United States and will help Louisiana meet its long-term carbon-reduction goals while creating and supporting local jobs. Once operational, the Ascension Parish facility will be able to produce enough hydrogen to power 3 million cars daily. The clean energy complex will use a safe and proven technology called carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) to capture 95 percent of the carbon emissions during the production of hydrogen, and then permanently store it in a rock formation more than one mile below Lake Maurepas.
The clean energy complex positions Louisiana as a critical player in strengthening America’s energy independence and as a global leader in next-generation energy production by producing low-carbon hydrogen.

Our dream of the future is for Air Products to be the leader in providing innovative processes and facilities that provide green and blue hydrogen on a world-scale. This requires expertise and technologies in the production of green hydrogen and carbon capture technologies to enable the production of blue hydrogen. At Air Products, we have the technology, the track record, the capital and the ambition to be a first mover in pursuit of this goal.
