Air Products and Chemicals (APD) said it won a long-term onsite contract to supply syngas to Jiutai New Material Co. Ltd for its multi-billion dollar mono-ethylene glycol project in Hohhot, China.
Air Products will build, own and operate the air separation, gasification and gas clean up processing facility that will include its proven and recently acquired Shell gasification technology. The project is expected to come onstream in FYQ421 and add more than $0.20 to Air Products’ EPS beginning in fiscal year 2022.
Air Products will invest about $650 million to build, own and operate the facility, and will receive a fixed monthly fee under the long-term contract. The facility will be designed to produce more than 500,000Nm3/hr of syngas, and will be comprised of five gasifiers, two approximately 100,000nm3/hr air separation units (ASU), with syngas purification and processing, as well as associated infrastructure and utilities. Jiutai will supply the coal feedstock and take all output from the plant.
