Air Liquide Buys Hydrogen Technology from H2Gen

American affiliate companies Air Liquide Process & Construction and Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP will manage the acquired technology.

Paris, France-based Air Liquide has acquired the Hydrogen Generation Module (HGM) technology from H2Gen Innovations Inc., Alexandria, VA, a manufacturing company for on-site hydrogen generators and gas purification units. The acquired technology will integrated into two Air Liquide affiliate companies: Air Liquide Process & Construction, Inc., and Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP, both based in Houston, TX.

The HGM units produce high purity hydrogen for a variety of applications including float glass production, heat treatment of metals, hydrogen energy and photovoltaic processes. Air Liquide had previously selected H2Gen as its preferred supplier for small scale steam methane reformers and has used the HGM technology in several recent projects.

"With the acquisition of H2Gen's hydrogen generation technology, Air Liquide will provide customers with a comprehensive on-site hydrogen solution," said Michael Graff, president and CEO of American Air Liquide Holdings, Inc. "This acquisition is instrumental in achieving our growth ambitions in the hydrogen merchant market."

Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP provides bulk gases and related services to a diverse base of customers in the U.S. including those in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, metals and automotive industries. Air Liquide Process & Construction, Inc. provides engineering, procurement and construction services.
