Praxair starts up ASU plant at Essar Steel in Canada

MISSISSAUGA, CANADA: Praxair Canada Inc, subsidiary of Praxair Inc, has completed the start-up of a cryogenic air separation plant to supply 900 ton per day of gaseous oxygen to Essar Steel Algoma Inc’s steel mill located in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada. The new plant is fully integrated with Praxair’s existing air separation facilities at Essar in Sault St Marie, increasing the total installed capacity at the site to 2,700 ton per day.

“Praxair and Essar Steel Algoma have had a strong relationship for over 50 years. This capacity enhancement by Praxair is key to Essar Algoma’s growth plans in the coming years,” said Kalyan Ghosh, Chief Commercial Officer, Essar Steel Algoma.
