Uzbekistan GTL set up its own hydrogen production

A hydrogen production unit has been launched at the Uzbekistan GTL plant, the press service of the Ministry of Energy reports.

After the plant is fully commissioned, the plant will be able to receive up to 300 million cubic meters of hydrogen annually. The resulting volume will be used in the production of synthetic oil and fuel.

As previously reported, Uzbekistan GTL will be able to produce 307,000 tons of jet fuel, 724,000 tons of diesel fuel, 437,000 tons of naphtha, and 53,000 tons of liquefied gas. The volume of production of the most demanded products at the moment can be increased dynamically.

It is noted that GTL fuel, when used, creates 40% less atmospheric emissions compared to traditional fuel. Due to this, annual emissions will be reduced by 13.5 thousand tons.

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev instructed to create the first gas chemical cluster in Uzbekistan on the basis of the plant and the Shurtan GCC. It will launch the production of a wide variety of products – from synthetic oils and alkylbenzene to polyethylene and polypropylene.

By 2025, it is planned to increase the volume of production by 6 times – up to $1.8 billion. For every $1 of the cost of raw materials used by the cluster, there will be $10 of added value.
