Work is underway for Air Liquide China to introduce its ASPALTM water treatment solution to the Chinese market, after the company recently signed a supply contract with Golden Huasheng Paper Company.

The contract was signed in December 2011 and Air Liquide will provide six sets of TURBOXAL equipment and nine tons of liquid oxygen per day to the customer’s plant in Suzhou for water treatment purposes.

With the increasing industrialisation and urbanisation in China, water treatment has aroused wide attention.

Over the last decade, Air Liquide China has actively promoted innovative solutions to address concerns related to wastewater treatment of various industries, such as paper, food, textile, chemical, and helping them to minimise their environmental impact.

Under the terms of the contract, Air Liquide will provide the liquid oxygen and equipment for the treatment of 30,000 tons of wastewater per day. With this contract, Air Liquide officially introduces the group’s innovative ASPALTM solution into the Chinese market.

“We’re glad to supply Golden Huasheng Paper with our innovative comprehensive solution for wastewater treatment”

Jean-Yves Iatrides, Senior Vice-President of Air Liquide China

ASPALTM is a branded solution developed by the Air Liquide Group, dedicated to water treatment. It adopts pure oxygen boosting technology which increases the efficiency of oxygen transfer up to 80-90% compared with the traditional air boosting technology. Thus, this notably enhances the concentration and activeness of microbes, and consequently, effectively improves the bio-productivities of the facilities for better discharge quality, with less consumption of energy and chemical additives.

Jean-Yves Iatrides, Senior Vice-President of Air Liquide China, in charge of Industrial Merchant & Acquisitions, commented on the deal in a statement, “We’re glad to supply Golden Huasheng Paper with our innovative comprehensive solution for wastewater treatment.”

“It’s the first application reference of ASPALTM in China. We are committed to bring to our customer our expertise coming from decades of experience accumulated and to support the Chinese manufacturers’ business growth while contributing to a better environment.”
