A successful sustainability model: Air Products SA’s state-of-the-art dissolved acetylene facility


Air Products South Africa unveiled a dissolved acetylene (DA) facility in Midvaal two years ago with two clear objectives: to centralise the manufacturing of acetylene at a single dedicated high volume production facility, but more importantly to design it in such a way that it was aligned to the latest global trends in process technology, health, safety and environmental management.

Guided by Air Products’ global engineering standards as well as years of management and operational experience, the in-house Air Products project team designed and constructed the facility to incorporate the latest technology for the safe production of high quality Acetylene gas in a manner that is not harmful to the environment.

Air Products said the success of this facility two years later is evident in the combination of production excellence and more importantly, sustainable practices.
