Airgas to build liquid carbon dioxide plant in Houston, US

RADNOR, US: Airgas Inc will build a new 450 tonne per day liquid carbon dioxide plant at the Shell Deer Park Refinery complex near Houston, US. Airgas also entered into a 15 year agreement with Shell Oil Company, which will supply the feedstock of raw carbon dioxide for the Airgas facility. Shell Global Solutions (US) Inc played an integral role in the development of this project by identifying this opportunity and creating the framework for this collaboration.

“By building a new world-class facility at this important petrochemical refinery, Airgas will better serve carbon dioxide customers in the greater south-central Texas market. We currently serve customers in this region through a smaller plant in La Porte, Texas. This new site will create a stronger network of plants for our liquid merchant customers and for our own dry ice production,” said Ted Schulte, President, Carbonic and Dry Ice division, Airgas.
