Air Products’ Chief Operating Officer to Discuss the Emergence of
Hydrogen Supply and Demand Centers Across Asia and Beyond
LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Aug. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Air Products’ (NYSE:APD) Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Samir J. Serhan, will take part in a global business leadership panel titled “The Emergence of Hydrogen Supply and Demand Centers Across Asia and Beyond: How are Hubs Driving Global Hydrogen Trade” at Gastech 2023, which is from September 5-8 at the Singapore Expo in Tampines, Singapore.
“Hydrogen is essential if the world is to meet its sustainability goals. We need to recognize that every second of delay is a missed opportunity to drive decarbonization,” said Dr. Serhan. “For hard-to-abate sectors such as steel, heavy transportation and chemicals, hydrogen is the clean energy solution. That is why Air Products will commit at least $15 billion of investment in clean hydrogen projects by 2027 to accelerate the energy transition. From a green ammonia project in NEOM in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to our net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Alberta, Canada, to our sustainable aviation fuel project in California, U.S.A., Air Products is taking action to generate a cleaner future.” The global business leadership panel is scheduled from 11:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (GMT+8) on Wednesday, September 6.
Dr. Serhan is one of several Air Products’ leaders who will participate in Gastech 2023. Air Products’ Wilbur Mok, President, Asia, will take part in a strategic leadership panel titled “Structure and Scale: Accelerating Global Hydrogen Demand Growth.” The session, which will include five additional industry leaders, is scheduled from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. (GMT+8) on Tuesday, September 5.
Air Products’ Executive Director of Global Technology, Roger Dewing, will serve as moderator on a “Hydrogen Technologies” panel. Topics of the panel will include: upscaling the global hydrogen value chain, the use of 100 percent hydrogen-ready gas turbines for decarbonizing energy industries and the production of carbon-negative hydrogen via methane pyrolysis. The panel, which will include three additional industry leaders, is scheduled for 3:30 to 5 p.m. (GMT+8) on Thursday, September 7. Additionally, Air Products is a Hydrogen Host Sponsor for the event.
