Air Products Canada Ltd., in conjunction with the Government of Canada and the Province of Alberta, today announced a multi-billion dollar 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 relies on an innovative combination of well-established technologies to jump-start an ambitious transition to carbon neutrality. It will take advantage of Canada’s abundant and low-cost natural resources, extensive infrastructure, highly skilled workforce, and innovative spirit to be a model for other jurisdictions around the globe.
“This exciting announcement represents the best and brightest of the Edmonton region’s energy future. With supporting infrastructure, a world-class talent and skill set, and visionary leadership, this project will contribute significantly to transforming AB’s #hydrogen landscape,” says Mark Plamondon, Executive Director of AIHA.
