Hydrogen & Synthesis Gas Production

Hydrogen Generation

Lummus Technology is a leading supplier of hydrogen plants for refinery, petrochemical and other industrial applications. In addition to EPC services, we offer proprietary reformer furnace technology that provides superior performance and efficient energy utilization. Over the past 50 years, we've designed and built more than 200 plants around the world that range in capacity from less than one million standard cubic feet per day to 237 million standard cubic feet per day. 

Hydrogen plant technologies

We design and build hydrogen plants that utilize steam-methane reforming (SMR), steam/oxygen reforming (SMR/O2R) or auto-thermal reforming (ATR) technology with natural gas, LPG or naphtha feedstocks. We also provide plants that utilize partial oxidation (POX) technology with natural gas, naphtha or heavy hydrocarbon feedstocks. 

SMR is the most widely used technology for hydrogen plants. SMR-type plants with a design capacity of more than seven million standard cubic feet per day incorporate our proprietary HYFORMING® box reformer furnace technology. Plants with a design capacity of up to seven million standard cubic feet per day feature our proprietary H2Drogen® cylindrical reformer furnace technology. Both technologies combine efficient energy utilization and superior performance with safety and ease of operation. 

Petroleum refiners and petrochemical manufacturers need a reliable supply of high-quality hydrogen for their operations. We offer solutions that are suited for a variety of feedstocks, capacity requirements and other criteria. And our proven, innovative technologies deliver superior long-term value, low life-cycle costs and reliable performance.
