BOC Gases has recently begun supplying hydrogen for cleaner fuel production from its newest hydrogen plant in Lima, Ohio.

The plant, which is capable of producing over 200,000 Nm3/hour, began supplying Valero's 170,000 barrel a day Lima oil refinery with hydrogen for use in a new diesel hydrotreating unit.

Jim Quain, business manager, BOC process gas solutions, said: $quot;BOC is pleased to support Valero in its efforts to protect our environment. We worked with Valero to develop a cost effective solution that enables them to meet consumers' energy demands.$quot;
