Air Products to build Air Separation Unit in China

LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products announced it has signed a long-term contract with Shaanxi Future Energy Chemical Co., Ltd. and will build, own and operate the largest on-site air separation unit (ASU) order ever awarded to an industrial gas company.  The facility, to be located in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, China, will include multiple ASU trains and produce 12,000 tons per day (TPD) of oxygen and significant tonnage volumes of nitrogen and compressed dry air for Shaanxi's coal chemical plant.  The Air Products ASU trains are scheduled to be operational in 2014.

"We are honored to have reached this milestone and to supply this very large industrial gas demand for Shaanxi Future Energy Chemical Company. We believe our worldwide track record of industrial gas facility safety and production reliability was important to gaining this long-term contract. Winning this new order allows Air Products to supply two important customers, both located in Shaanxi Province, from the two largest ASU train orders ever awarded to an industrial gas company," said Steve Jones, president, Air Products.

The ASU trains are to include design enhancements to minimize operating costs through energy efficiency. Technology advancements and other productivity improvements support Air Products' overall sustainability goals of reducing energy consumption and emissions. "We have worked hard to develop the lowest cost and newest advanced technology ASU facilities to serve our customers with energy efficiencies that benefit their operations and the environment," said Jones.

"We are pleased to sign the ASU gases supply contract with Air Products. We believe that through close cooperation with Air Products, we can build and operate a world class coal chemical plant," said Qiwen Sun, general manger, Shaanxi Future Energy Chemicals Co., Ltd.
