KeyState’s Integrated Project in Pennsylvania Emphasizes Low-Carbon Approaches

Black & Veatch, a global leader in decarbonization solutions, announces it has begun pre-FEED (front end engineering and design) activities associated with the KeyState Natural Gas Synthesis plant in north-central Pennsylvania. The project is expected to produce hydrogen, automotive grade urea (DEF) and ammonia while capturing and permanently storing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with the hydrogen production.

The project is one of Pennsylvania’s first developments for the production of low-carbon hydrogen and other products that employs carbon capture and storage (CCS). Using the latest CCS technology, carbon will be removed during the process and sequestered in large measure permanently underground.

“The KeyState project aligns with the job creation and economic impact objectives contained in the Inflation Reduction Act, which support Appalachian communities that can benefit from the energy transition,” said project developer Perry Babb, KeyState's CEO. “Emissions reduction and great job creation can happen together and make a tremendous difference in many areas.”

Black & Veatch’s decades of experience in ammonia and nitrogen-based fertilizer production, and extensive experience with liquified hydrogen, CCS and power generation are uniquely aligned to the plant’s key success factors.

“As decarbonization efforts accelerate around the globe, this facility represents an important investment in a lower-carbon future and demonstrates that it is possible to produce greener fertilizers and fuels while sequestering greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change,” said Laszlo von Lazar, president of energy and process industries at Black & Veatch.
