Air Liquide to build nitrogen production facility in China


Air Liquide China today (4th Feb) said it will build, own and operate new high-purity nitrogen production facilities in Miangyang City with a total capacity of 75,000Nm3/h to supply IoT firm BOE.

The new production facility, expected to be operational in 2021, will supply BOE’s production of AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays, a technology that is increasingly used in high-end smartphones.

It will also provide volumes of oxygen, hydrogen, argon and carbon dioxide to BOE fabs in Chongqing and Mianyang.

Leveraging Air Liquide’s most advanced technologies, and in line with its Climate Objectives, the new power-efficient nitrogen production facilities are expected to have a reduced power consumption by 10% compared to previous units, which is equivalent to avoiding CO2 emissions of over 8,000 tons per year.
