Renewable Energy

Sustainable energy solutions

Air Liquide aims to power the world with clean and renewable energy sources. We innovate to develop sustainable energy solutions for the transportation, materials handling and electrical power sectors.

Air Liquide is a key player in the fast-growing hydrogen energy sector, with expertise in hydrogen production, fuelling infrastructure and uses for the end user.

Our renewable energy activities extend to solutions to capture and upgrade biogas from sources like landfills and wastewater sludge to produce clean and renewable natural gas that can be used for power, heating or transportation.

With Blue Hydrogen, Air Liquide is working toward the gradual decarbonization of its hydrogen production dedicated to energy applications.

We are committed to producing at least 50% of the hydrogen necessary for these applications through carbon-free processes by 2020.

Solar

There are currently a number of CSP plants operating and under construction in South Africa.

Concentrated Solar Power Plants (CSP) use a large number of mirrors or lenses to concentrate sunlight onto a small area. The heat from the concentrated solar energy is used to directly or indirectly convert high pressure water to steam.

In South Africa Kaxu Solar One plant was the first CSP PLANT to use parabolic mirrors followed by many more. The Northern Cape is clearly becoming South Africa’s solar energy hub.

Air Liquide aims to power the world with clean and renewable energy sources, with exceptional international references Air Liquide has been a reputable supplier to a number of South Africa’s Independent Power Producers (IPP’s). Nitrogen is used for the  “blanket” application of the thermal storage medium.

Wind

Wind as an energy source is only practical in areas that have strong and steady winds.Wind power offers a clean, free and renewable alternative to energy generated by fossil fuels. Air Liquide offers construction and welding technology and expertise to the  local power generation sites .

Biogas & Natural gas

Our renewable energy activities extend to solutions to capture and upgrade biogas from sources like landfills and wastewater sludge to produce clean and renewable natural gas that can be used for power, heating or transportation.

We additionally offer Welding and Construction material for the Oil and gas exploration industry.
