Clean hydrogen and CCUS initiatives are key to achieving net zero targets. Ammonia and CO2 are two of the key molecules.

Ammonia is considered a hydrogen derivative and is seen as a key vector in cost-efficiently transporting hydrogen over long distances. It is also a building block of low-carbon fertilizers. However, safety and reliability must be considered the highest priorities. In this webinar, John Crane will share best practices for sealing critical ammonia pumps, drawing on their decades of experience.

CO2 plays a role across both the hydrogen and the CCUS value chains and comes in all forms from gaseous to liquid and solid to supercritical states. In this webinar, our subject matter expert will focus on liquid CO2 applications, which play a significant role in CO2 capture, transport, storage and utilization.

Join industry experts for an in-depth discussion on the challenges and opportunities presented by ammonia and liquid CO2 pumping and how the right selection of mechanical seals ensures safe and reliable operation in mission-critical assets. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session that will provide critical insights into those core New Energy applications across the hydrogen and CCUS value chain.
