Air Products bags oxygen supply contract in South Korea

LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products and Chemicals Inc has been awarded a long-term contract by KCC Corporation, a leading glass maker in South Korea, to supply oxygen to the new glass wool production line at its Gimcheon facility. The new production line is scheduled to come onstream in 2017.

Air Products will install a PRISM vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) oxygen generator at KCC's Gimcheon site to supply on-site gaseous oxygen to the furnace for full oxy-fuel combustion, an advanced technology proven to make glass manufacturing cleaner. By maximising efficiency and significantly reducing energy requirements, the PRISM product line provides reliable, economical and eco-friendly on-site supply solutions.

"We have been supplying different offerings to KCC Corporation, including at the Gimcheon site, and are honoured to have won their continued confidence. Our longstanding relationship, as well as the latest contract with this strategic customer, demonstrates Air Products' capabilities in supporting the growth of a leading glass maker and also the industry as a whole," said Kyo-Yung Kim, president of Air Products Korea.
