Clean hydrogen is crucial to decarbonize the most energy intensive sectors, including industrial and chemical processes, power and heavy-duty transportation. There is no climate solution without clean hydrogen. Hydrogen is key for an affordable, secure and clean energy future.

Unleash the full potential of blue hydrogen

Low-carbon or blue hydrogen is key to the energy transition. Offering the opportunity to affordably decarbonize hard-to-abate industries and power as well as heavy transportation at the scale needed to meet growing energy demands.

BlueH2 by T.EN™: The complete low-carbon hydrogen solution

From technology to design, delivery and beyond, BlueH2 by T.EN™ is a unique suite of fully-integrated, low-carbon hydrogen technology and EPC solutions, part of Capture.Now™, our strategic platform for all our CCUS solutions, from a single provider tailored to meet our clients’ specific decarbonization and performance needs.  

With BlueH2 by T.EN™, we can deliver the best possible levelized cost for blue hydrogen production with the lowest carbon footprint across any type or scale of plant. 

Proprietary ATR technology for large-capacity, ultra-blue hydrogen

ATR Methanol Plant Casale

As a global leader in hydrogen, we have added Oxidative ATR technology in partnership with Casale to our extensive range of proprietary SMR technology solutions to deliver large-capacity, ultra-blue solutions with up to 99+ percent carbon capture rates. 

The oxidative reforming process - Auto Thermal Reforming (ATR) and Partial Oxidative (POx) - produces syngas that contains hydrogen, CO and CO2. ATR combined with Technip Parallel Reformer (TPR®) and carbon capture is a cost-effective way to produce low-carbon hydrogen at large-scale with optimized steam production. 

ATR is a game-changing technology as it breaks the upper capacity limit of traditional hydrogen plants, which were economically constrained by the size of the SMR, and enables large-capacity, ultra-blue hydrogen production with up to 99+ percent carbon capture rate. 

Industry leading steam methane reforming (SMR) technology

SMR is well suited to a wide range of capacities and we have unrivaled experience in this area with more than 275 hydrogen plants using our SMR technology. We can deliver top-fired reformers for hydrogen plants up to 300 kNm3/h (1 GW) in a single unit with optimized CAPEX and the lowest plot requirements without compromising OPEX. 

The value unleashed by BlueH2 by T.EN™
