LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products signed a long-term contract with Henan Xinlianxin Fertilizer for building and  operating an air separation unit (ASU) and integrated gas liquefier in Henan Province, China. The ASU will produce approximately 2,000 tonne per day of gaseous oxygen for Xinlianxin’s expanding fertilizer plant in Xinxiang. The liquefier will produce over 250 tonne per day of liquid products, namely oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, for the region’s growing merchant gases market. The Air Products ASU and liquefier are to be onstream in 2013.

“From a merchant gases opportunity, this location meets Air Products’ strategic goals in two ways. First, the facility’s liquefier on the ASU location to provide for integrated and efficient production of liquid gas products. Secondly, it will make Air Products the first global industrial gas producer in this market. The location is within a key region that Air Products believes will grow in industry segments,” said Steve Jones, President, Air Products China.
