Projections suggest further expansion, with an anticipated market value of US$ 1,092.96 million by 2029, characterized by a CAGR of 9.49% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2029.

PSA Hydrogen Purification refers to the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) process used to purify hydrogen gas. This technique is a cost-effective and energy-efficient method for producing high-purity hydrogen from various feedstocks, including natural gas, refinery off-gases, and other hydrogen-containing streams.

The PSA process works by using adsorbent materials, such as activated carbon or molecular sieves, to separate impurities like carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor from the hydrogen gas. The feed gas is pressurized and passed through a series of adsorber beds, where the impurities are adsorbed onto the adsorbent material, allowing the purified hydrogen to pass through.

The adsorbent beds are then regenerated in a cyclic process by reducing the pressure, which releases the adsorbed impurities. This allows the adsorbent material to be reused, and the process continues, producing a steady stream of high-purity hydrogen.

PSA Hydrogen Purification is commonly used in industrial applications, such as oil refineries, chemical plants, and hydrogen fuel cell systems, where high-purity hydrogen is required. It is a reliable and proven technology that helps to achieve stringent emission regulations and supports the transition towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.
