Praxair China has signed a contract to supply oxygen for pulp bleaching in the processing of paper products to Jiangsu Oji Paper Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Oji Paper Co., the leading paper manufacturer in Japan and one of the largest paper products manufacturers worldwide.
“Praxair China is pleased to establish the partnership with Oji Paper,” said Minda Ho, President of Praxair China. “We will continue to demonstrate our world-class gas supply service to support this prominent project in the global paper industry.”
