Praxair has signed a long-term agreement to supply oxygen to US Methanol LLC’s new facility in Institute, West Virginia. The customer’s facility will produce methanol for use in the production of plastics, varnishes, medicines, adhesives and textiles.

Danbury/USA — The company will build a vacuum pressure swing adsorption (VPSA) plant that is expected to start up in 2019.

US Methanol’s West Virginia facility will be a major regional manufacturer using gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale fields. The low cost of producing natural gas and related byproducts is expected to expand the chemical industry in the area. The company selected the site because of its access to water, rail and highway systems and low cost raw materials.

Frank Bakker, US Methanol chief executive officer, said that his company chose Praxair for their first facility in West Virginia because of their reputation as a reliable supplier, and because the company was a leader in VPSA technology.
