Large-scale hydrogen production unit in Yanbu

One of our many achievements in the region is the successful commissioning of a large-scale Steam Methane Reformer unit for the YASREF refinery (in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia), with a total hydrogen production capacity of 340,000 Nm3/hour. This is the first time in the Middle East that the hydrogen production for such a large refinery has been outsourced to a third party.

Chemical companies throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, are continuously coping with cost pressures that stem from demand volatility, competition, and price fluctuations of chemical commodities.

Our industrial gases - such as oxygen, hydrogen and carbon monoxide - are essential molecules, required as reaction agents for various process steps in the chemical and petrochemical production chain. Nitrogen, used for inerting, purging, cooling, and other specific applications, is also a key component of our offer. Additionally, we can deliver steam and power for utilities, speciality gases for research centres, process control and quality control.

Product Application In-house production process
Oxygen Oxidation reactions or debottlenecking From standard plants to customized ASUs
Hydrogen Hydrogenation reactions
  • Steam Methane Reformer (SMR)
  • Auto Thermal Reformer
  • Partial Oxidation Unit
Carbon monoxide Carbonylation reactions  CO Cold Box
Nitrogen Process gas, blanketing, drying, purging, stirring From standard to customized nitrogen plants
Power, steam and utilities   Cogeneration unit

As per the above table, Air Liquide is continuously assisting its customers in their day-to-day operations with reliable and cost-effective gas solutions. The customer focuses on their core business while Air Liquide invests, designs, builds and operates the gas plant, managing the delivery and the maintenance of its process and equipment.

Chemical companies strive to reduce their environmental footprint and meet stringent regulations, while creating innovative products.
Metal fabrication processes require several industrial and technical gases, in order to transform raw materials into their final form.

Metal Fabrication

We have extensive expertise in metal fabrication across industries that produce steel, non-ferrous structures, vessels, cars, aircrafts and others.

We deliver reliable and competitive gas solutions to our customers, supplied via cylinders, bulk, pipeline distribution and on-site production units. Our solutions cover three critical stages in the manufacturing cycle.

Cutting of metallic raw materials

  • Flame cutting using FLAMAL™, a range of oxygen and fuel gases that improve safety, quality and productivity
  • Laser cutting using LASAL™ to improve performance and reliability for high performance jobs

Arc Welding 

ARCAL™ is the first arc welding offer that covers most of the market needs with four ready to weld gases (ARCAL™ Prime, ARCAL™ ChromeARCAL™ Force and ARCAL™ Speed) and the innovative built-in regulator (EXELTOP™).

Industries must reduce their polluting emissions, improve their processes for a maximum reuse of water and materials.

Water & Sewage Treatment

Industries must reduce their pollution emissions and improve their processes for maximum reuse of water and materials, while complying with the reinforcement of environmental and sanitary regulations.

At Air Liquide, we master applications using gas technology to treat water, recycle metal, recover solvents, analyse air quality and recover waste.

Drinking Water Carbon dioxide (CO2) is used for calco-carbonic equilibrium management for remineralization and pH control at desalination plants. Advanced treatment processes to answer stringent regulatory standards require oxidation and disinfection properties of oxygen and ozone.
Wastewater The introduction of pure oxygen into biological basins with gas injectors, instead of using the traditional air blowing technology, helps industries comply with today’s strict regulations regarding waste-water discharge.
Sludge Reduction With innovative ozone solutions developed by Air Liquide, the biological sludge production and the energy and consumption of reactive products are reduced. Our customers manage their activated sludge process in a more efficient manner and produce 30% to 40% less sludge.
Scaling Treatment Replacing liquid chemical acids with the dissolution of carbon dioxide in cooling water helps prevent or eliminate scale in the cooling circuits. Our expertise allows us to provide the most adapted treatment based on water characteristics and chemical treatments.
Our goal is to guarantee the safety and high quality of the products for the final consumers.

Food & Beverage

Air Liquide has developed innovative ALIGAL™ food-grade gas solutions, compliant with HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) in order to meet the most rigorous health and safety standards. Whether in freezing, modified atmosphere packaging, product quality and flavour preservation, carbonation, inerting and/or throughout the processing and distribution chains, our goal is to guarantee the safety and high quality of the products for the end users, while increasing the productivity of our partners and extending the product shelf life.

  • Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) to enhance appearance and organoleptic product's charasteristics
  • Freezing & Chilling to enhance natural taste while minimizing dehydration
  • Cold transportation
  • Nexelia for freezing & chilling
  • Carbofresh™
  • blueeze™
  • Carbonated drinks with carbonation process
  • Still drinks with oxidation process
  • Wines and spirits with temperature control process
  • ALIGAL™ carbon dioxide
