The plant comprises a new carbon monoxide purification train with a capacity to handle more than 13 million cubic feet per day. The facility also leverages proprietary technologies to improve the overall efficiency of the Geismar site.

Connecticut/USA – Praxair has recently announced the completion of a major investment project at its Geismar, Louisiana facility. Bringing a new plant online will increase carbon monoxide supply to customers in the Geismar area.

The plant incorporates a new carbon monoxide purification train with more than 13 million cubic feet per day of capacity. This facility is part of a much larger investment that Praxair has embarked upon in Louisiana and the US Gulf Coast. It also leverages proprietary technologies to improve the overall efficiency of the site and maintain its long-term reliability and competitiveness.

Carbon monoxide is essential for the manufacture of a wide array of products, such as polyurethane precursors and other specialty chemicals. Hydrogen, carbon monoxide and other gas products required by the local chemical and refining industries were first produced at this site in the early 1970’s.

Major Plant Engineering GROAB is a project database for international major plant engineering and construction. You can find more than 5500 projects within 13 categories. Learn more about GROAB and test the database.

Over the years the site has been expanded and more recently, the Geismar facility has been integrated into a 90-mile pipeline network stretching from Baton Rouge to St. Charles. This latest investment further strengthens Praxair’s ability to reliably serve the increased demand from customers, ranging from world scale refineries to technology leading biofuel companies.
