Syngas and Hydrogen Plant Design

From syngas to hydrogen, gasification projects have been a point of emphasis for KPE since it's inception.

As your strategic partner, we align our vast experience with your project needs to bring value to your project.

What does this alignment look like for syngas and hydrogen process designs?

  • We assess feasibility of the project
  • We provide capital and operation cost estimates to inform your investment decisions
  • We evaluate options for selecting the optimal technologies
  • We execute the most cost-effective, all-encompassing solution for your project

We lead with experience.

For 20+ years, our personnel have conducted a countless number of gasification and feasibility projects (from studies to project execution).
