Airgas USA, an Air Liquide company, announced plans to build a new liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) production facility in Stockton, California, and to expand an air separation unit (ASU) in Etiwanda, California.

Radnor/USA — The new facility in Stockton will produce liquid CO2 and support the manufacturing of dry ice used in a variety of customer applications, from water treatment and food chilling to freezing systems and brewing and winemaking. The plant’s process will use CO2 by-product from Pacific Ethanol’s nearby ethanol production facility. With the additional plant in Stockton, Airgas will have three CO2 plants in Northern, Central, and Southern California.

The expansion of the existing air separation unit in Etiwanda will increase available supply of industrial gases to customers throughout Southern California, the company announced. The expansion will produce cryogenic liquid nitrogen and oxygen to support the region’s merchant bulk gas market supplying a range of industries including healthcare, chemical, food and beverage, steel, glass, electronics as well as oil and gas industries. The ASU expansion will be constructed within the existing facility, an energy-efficient ASU first inaugurated in 2011 by Air Liquide.
