Air Liquide China was granted Sustainability Influencer Award 2017 and Sustainability Best Practice Award 2017 for its innovative Nexelia water treatment solution at the ‘Heading Toward 2040: Corporate Innovation and Urban Sustainability Summit’ in Shanghai.
Nexelia, the exclusive biological sludge treatment solutions developed by Air Liquide, are proven technologies with over 1,500 references worldwide. The solutions encompass the supply of pure oxygen, injection equipment and expert support.
Air Liquide China introduced the innovative solutions to Chinese customers in recent years and helped them significantly reduce sludge disposal costs and improve the stability of wastewater treatment process.
Marcelo Fioranelli, Vice-President of Air Liquide Greater China commented, “Air Liquide China is committed to providing innovative solutions to help our Chinese customers operate in a cost-effective and eco-friendly manner. The awards from the Shanghai municipal government are valuable recognition of our efforts in this respect and encourage us to continue contributing to the sustainability of the local community.”
Co-sponsored by Information Office of Shanghai Municipal Government, Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce and Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau, the event aims at promoting sustainability initiatives and displaying Shanghai’s efforts in progressing towards a global city of excellence.
Air Liquide has signed a new long-term agreement with Pemex Transformación Industrial, a subsidiary of Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX), the state-owned oil and gas company, to supply hydrogen (H2) to PEMEX’s refinery located in the central region of Mexico.
