Praxair starts new air separation plant in Brazil

DANBURY, US: White Martins, the Brazil-based subsidiary of Praxair Inc, has started up a new air separation plant in the state of Mato Grosso, in Brazil’s fast growing Midwest region. As part of a long-term contract, Praxair will supply Eldorado Celulose e Papel’s single-line pulp mill, which will be the largest in the world.

The new air separation unit will have the capacity to produce 220 tonne per day of oxygen, nitrogen and argon. The plant will also supply local merchant liquid customers in the Brazilian Midwest and in the neighbouring state of Sao Paulo in markets such as petrochemicals, metals and healthcare.

“This is Praxair’s fifth plant in this region, which further enhances our production and distribution capabilities. We look forward to playing an important role in Eldorado’s ongoing growth and contributing to the industrial and economic development of this region,” said Domingos Bulus, President, White Martins.
