SHANGHAI, CHINA: Praxair China has signed a long-term supply contract with Yankuang Guohong Chemical Co Ltd and Yankuang Group to supply industrial gases to its coal gasification process for the production of methanol and downstream chemicals at its chemical park in Zoucheng city. To meet the gas demand of Yankuang Guohong for its coal to chemical project, Praxair will construct a large air separation facility with a capacity of 3,000 tonne of oxygen per day and purchase Yankuang Guohong’s existing air separation units.

The new plant is scheduled to start up in late 2014 and will replace Yankuang Guohong’s existing air separation units. The liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon produced from the existing air separation plants and the new facilities will be integrated with Praxair China’s liquid production and distribution network in the region, improving distribution efficiency and reliability to the customers in the rapidly growing regional merchant market.

“We are pleased to work with Yankuang Group, the leading coal based chemical and gasification technology enterprise in China. We look forward to building a long-term and sustainable commercial relationship with Yankuang and contributing to the industrial and economic development of this region,” said Dr Anne Roby, President, Praxair Asia.
