Second Air Products ASU contract in China


Air Products has signed a second long-term agreement contract with Wilson Chemical Company Ltd to supply onsite gaseous oxygen and nitrogen to the firm’s syngas plant, located in the Nanjing Chemical Industrial Park (NCIP) in Eastern China.

As part of Wilson’s phase two expansion plan, under the contract Air Products will provide a new air separation unit (ASU) that is capable of producing more than 1,600 tpd of oxygen and will be built close to Wilson’s first ASU in the NCIP.

With this further investment, we are gaining significant momentum in our Tonnage Gases and large ASU businesses in China.$quot;
