Houston, Texas/USA – “The construction of this facility represents Airgas’ commitment to this very important and strategic market,” said Phil Filer, President, Airgas Carbonic and Airgas Dry Ice. “With our long-term feedstock agreements we will be able to serve existing and secure new carbon dioxide customers in the petrochemical industry, as well as the traditional food chilling and beverage carbonation industries. We will also be supplying liquid carbon dioxide to our dry ice facility in LaPorte, Texas.” The company expects to be able to start construction works soon, having the plant operational in fall.
