Total Energies company announced that it has composed a partnership with Air Liquid to decarbonize hydrogen production at TotalEnergies’ Normandy platform in France, a statement issued by TotalEnergies declared.

The statement elaborated that this project will allow for TotalEnergies to be supplied with low-carbon hydrogen in time by relying on Air Liquide’s hydrogen network in Normandy and the implementation of a large-scale CO2 capture and storage solution (CCS).

The two companies will conduct development studies to deploy a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project to decarbonize the hydrogen produced in this unit at the Normandy platform. Air Liquide would install its CryocapTM process to capture CO2, while TotalEnergies handle transportation and storage of the captured CO2, notably through the Northern Lights (Norway) and Aramis (Netherlands) CCS projects being developed in the North Sea.

On the long run, these projects will reduce the carbon emissions from the unit’s hydrogen production by approximately 650,000 tons of CO2 per year by 2030.
