                                            Our innovation contributes to low-carbon growth

                                            The wide range of innovative technologies and solutions in the field of energy transition, reinforced by the strength of digital and strong integration within the ecosystems, allow the Innovation teams to contribute to the Group’s sustainable growth.?

                                            Air Liquide is a leader in the global Hydrogen Energy economy. Hydrogen – in particular low-carbon hydrogen – plays a key role in the fight against climate change and the energy transition (mobility, energy). For more than 40 years, Air Liquide has been developing unique expertise in the mastery of the entire hydrogen chain (production, storage, and distribution).

                                            From R&D to Global Markets & Technologies, Air Liquide develops solutions in a circular economy approach. The Innovation teams are working on the transformation of biomass into biomethane and organic fertilizer, using the Group’s membrane technologies which purify biogas to produce biomethane and allow for it to be injected into the grid.?

                                            The Innovation teams are also currently working on improving the energy efficiency of production units, as well as on CO2 capture and valorization technologies.

                                            Our innovation serves customers and patients and boosts operational excellence?

                                            • Digital for new services and offers

                                              Innovation also focuses on the deployment of new offerings for the Group’s customers and patients. Thanks to their proximity with their customers, Air Liquide’s teams are in a position to anticipate future usages, invent new solutions and roll them out in the relevant markets.

                                              For example, the Group launched a breakthrough innovation, Qlixbi, which includes a next generation gas cylinder and a range of digital solutions for welding which radically transforms customer experience. Developed in close collaboration with more than 700 welding customers, this innovation has improved the way in which they use and manage gases in their industry on a daily basis.

                                            • Also, Air Liquide Healthcare, a pioneer in remote medical surveillance, scaled up its innovative offer Chronic Care ConnectTM program. The aims of remote medical surveillance include preventing complications, avoiding re-hospitalizations, and helping healthcare professionals gain time.

                                            • Innovation for operational excellence

                                              By combining its digital expertise with its technological capabilities, Air Liquide innovates through digital solutions which help optimize production operations.?

                                              For example, the global Smart & Innovative Operations (SIO) program relies on data analysis (Air Liquide collects one billion data each day on its production units) to improve the reliability of oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen plants and optimize energy consumption.

                                            Innovation with ecosystems

                                            Air Liquide’s innovation strategy is part of an open ecosystem.

                                            The Innovation and Development Division teams are located all around the world and work closely together. They gather Research & Development, Digital & IT teams (including Alizent), Global Markets & Technologies, i-lab (our innovation lab focused on understanding the new trends) and ALIAD teams.
