CLEANPACE™ solutions: Decarbonising refinery hydrogen and chemicals production

To tackle climate change, we must continue to find the solutions that will help substantially reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. The refining and chemical industry is the third largest emitting industry behind the iron/steel and cement industries; so to meet net zero targets, the adoption of low carbon solutions in the chemicals space will be key.

Tackling carbon intensive processes such as the production of fossil fuel derived syngas, a significant source of CO2 emissions, is one of the many areas where we can help. Johnson Matthey has a rich history providing catalysts and technology to the petrochemical industry and played a major role in the development of syngas. Our experience in this industry, coupled with our expertise in deploying technology at scale allows us to provide our customers with innovative solutions that take them a step closer to their net zero targets.

Starting your decarbonisation journey together



Our developing CLEANPACE suite of low carbon solutions can help you realise your climate ambitions:

  • Studies to evaluate the technical and economic impacts of our various technology options to decarbonise Steam Methane Reformers (SMRs), a key source of emissions in the syngas generation process.
  • Solutions to revamp SMRs with existing, proven technology to achieve CO2 emission reductions of up to 95%, using pre-combustion carbon capture.
  • Our methanol technology portfolio that can be used to decarbonise chemical and refining value chains by using captured CO2 and/or other low value process off gases as feedstock.
  • Our award winning LCHTM flowsheet for grass roots CCS-enabled blue hydrogen production.

JM Low Carbon Solutions (LCS) business helps our customers navigate and overcome the challenges they face in meeting emissions reduction targets. We provide tailored solutions that help you achieve significant and sustained reductions in carbon emissions; at scale, today, with existing technology.
