Technical Gases Praxair Starts Up Air-Separation Plant in China
Gas specialist Praxiar starts up a large air separation plant in northern China for the Yankuang Guohong Chemical facility in Zoucheng City.
Danbury, Connecticut/USA; Zoucheng/PR China – Through a long-term contract, the new 3,000-ton-per-day plant will supply on-site oxygen and nitrogen to Yankuang and replaces the existing customer-owned air separation units. Praxair’s industrial gases will be used in the coal gasification process for the production of methanol and downstream chemicals.
“Praxair’s world-class air separation plant is helping Yankuang achieve energy efficiency while providing enhanced safety and reliability performance,” said Will Li, president of Praxair China. “The success of this project is due to the strong cooperation between our companies, and we look forward to continuing a long and successful commercial relationship.”
