- CAD Cut chosen for heavy ion accelerator
- Funding for ‘smart rocks’ could enable carbon storage
- CSC’s new hire pivotal to aerospace growth
- Norway H2 infrastructure grows following Uno-X and Praxair deal
- Concluding the conquest: Airgas acquisition officially complete
Air Liquide has just announced the expected completion of the acquisition of Airgas, Inc., a $13.4bn deal first revealed in November 2015 and recently the subject of all necessary closing conditions and approvals.
Leading high pressure gas containment systems manufacturer Chesterfield Special Cylinders (CSC) has appointed a former RAF Red Arrows squadron member as its new sales engineer, working in the transport and aerospace sectors.
The soon-to-open Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University has selected CAD Cut to provide cryogenic cutting kits for its heavy ion accelerator.
A professor from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK has received a prestigious European Research Council Advanced Award of €3m ($3.3m) to pursue frontier research into ‘smart rocks’ which could assist in the future storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) underground.
The hydrogen (H2) fuelling infrastructure continues to grow in Norway after Uno-X Hydrogen AS and a Norwegian affiliate of Praxair signed a strategic alliance to install a further 20 stations throughout the Scandinavian country.
So the ink is finally dry on the biggest deal in the industrial gases business in years, with the key signatures committed to contracts and glasses raised across both sides of the Atlantic. It’s official: Air Liquide has acquired Airgas, at a total enterprise value of $13.4bn.
The management of Chemogas NV, a leading international provider of packaged chemical gases and related services, and Gilde Equity Management (GEM) Benelux have announced the agreement to acquire the company from The Linde Group.
Bulk CO2 supply chain – Global trends and challenges Subscription
With today’s global merchant carbon dioxide (CO2) market estimated to be over 20 million tonnes of annual consumption, the US still leads the way, with estimated usage over 40% of this grand total. But there are changes in the market make-up and, here, Sam A. Rushing provides insight into the trends and challenges in the global bulk CO2 supply chain.
When Linde announced in mid-March that it had been awarded multiple gas and chemical supply contracts for a number of world leading photovoltaic (PV) cell manufacturer’s first plants in South East Asia, it threw fresh spotlight on the potential that this market affords. Here this month gasworld explores just what potential may lie in wait.
On my way back from the GAWDA conference last week in Savannah, Georgia, I couldn’t help but think about how much the cryogenic tank and trailer industry in the US has been transformed in only a few short years. It’s barely recognisable from what it was only even a year or two ago.
Air Liquide and ITER: The largest cryogenics plant Subscription
Mastering fusion on Earth would pave the way for unlimited energy resources, such is the magnitude of its development. Controlled fusion is in fact one of the most promising paths to carbon-free energy – and precisely what the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) project seeks to do.
