LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products has signed a long-term contract with Cangzhou Zhengyuan Fertilizer Co Ltd and will build, own and operate an air separation unit (ASU) and integrated gas liquefier in Hebei Province, China. The ASU will produce approximately 2,000 tonne per day (TPD) of gaseous oxygen for Cangzhou Zhengyuan’s gasifier operation at its fertilizer plant in Hebei. The facility will also produce liquid product to serve the region’s growing merchant gases market. The Air Products ASU and liquefier are to be onstream in 2014.

“The location of this facility in Hebei Province furthers several of the objectives in our China strategy. It will site sustainable tonnage gases and merchant operations in a key region and use a proven A2000 ASU product line. Further, the liquefier provides for the integrated gases model and offering we are seeking to establish in this market,” said Stephen J Jones, President, Air Products China.

“Air Products’ proven technology in gases for coal-gasification along with its unparalleled operations and management expertise will help strengthen Zhengyuan’s leading position in coal-gasification, synthetic ammonia and urea industries,” said Liu Jincheng, President of Hebei Yangmei Zhengyuan Chemical Group Co Ltd, parent of Cangzhou Zhengyuan.

The ASU train will 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. Air Products will also locate a liquid bulk terminal facility to support the liquefier at this site to serve merchant gas customers in the region.
