Air Products is preparing for the construction of a new 100 ton per day (tpd) ion transport membrane oxygen production test facility.
The pilot plant project will be located in Convent, Louisiana and shall include an ion transport membrane ITM oxygen producing unit as well as an electrical cogeneration power unit.
The project will be part funded by the United States Department of Energy, and will be operational in the second half of 2012.
Ted Foster, Director of Business Development at Air Products described the project as a ‘significant scale-up in size’ from its five tpd ITM facility. The Director added, “The 100 tpd unit to be built is an intermediate size unit and will provide reliable engineering and economic data to position this technology for the next scale up in size to approximately 2,000 tpd, which we see as the logical step toward serving much larger energy plants.”
