Praxair has acquired and will operate a 300-ton-per-day carbon dioxide (CO2) purification and liquefaction plant from PureCO2, LP.
Danbury/USA — Owned by Ferus, LP, PureCO2 is a producer and distributor of liquefied food- and beverage-quality CO2, located in Price, Utah. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquired plant will serve customers throughout the region in a variety of end-markets, including food and beverage, metal fabrication and water treatment.
