Praxair breaks ground on new air separation plant in US

DANBURY, US: To support the current and projected industrial growth in the US Southeast region, Praxair Inc broke ground on its new air separation unit in Memphis, Tennessee. With a capacity of 600 tonne per day, the new plant is scheduled to start up in the second quarter 2013.

Praxair currently operates three air separation units in Memphis area which supply a number of customers and a growing number of liquid-product customers. Praxair recently started up a plant and commissioned a pipeline capable of serving multiple customers in Riverport area.

“Praxair’s new plant will further strengthen Praxair’s supply position in the greater Southeast region, allowing us to meet future demand from companies attracted to the area’s business-friendly environment,” said Kevin Foti, East Region Vice President, US industrial gases business, Praxair.

“As the only fully integrated gas supplier in the US, our ability to deliver everything from cylinder gases for welding or research to bulk and on-site gases for manufacturing is a plus for companies in the Southeast,” he added.
