ExxonMobil to Utilize Topsoe Technology for World’s Largest Low Carbon Hydrogen Facility

Topsoe, a global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies, and ExxonMobil, one of the world’s largest energy and petrochemical companies, have signed an agreement under which Topsoe will deliver its industry leading hydrogen SynCOR™ technology to ExxonMobil’s planned low carbon hydrogen production facility in Baytown, Texas.

ExxonMobil’s low-carbon hydrogen, ammonia, and carbon capture facility is expected to generate up to 1 billion cubic feet of hydrogen per day, delivering low-carbon fuel to the Baytown olefins plant and other Houston-area facilities. Replacing natural gas with hydrogen at the Baytown olefins plant could reduce the integrated complex’s CO2 emissions by up to 30%.

  • Topsoe’s SynCOR™ hydrogen technology will enable ExxonMobil to produce hydrogen at mega scale as well as capture and store more than 98% of its associated COemissions, or around 7 million metric tons per year
  • The facility’s carbon capture process will be delivered by Honeywell UOP
  • ExxonMobil’s planned low carbon hydrogen facility will be built at their integrated refining and petrochemical complex in Baytown at Houston, Texas
  • The facility has a targeted production of 1 billion cubic feet of hydrogen per day, making it the largest low-carbon hydrogen project in the world, at planned start-up in 2027-2028.
