White Martins Starts Up Plant to Supply Eldorado in Brazil
Apr 12 13
White Martins has started up a new air separation plant in the state of Mato Grosso, in Brazil's fast growing Midwest region. As part of a long-term contract, Praxair will supply Eldorado Celulose e Papel's single-line pulp mill. The new air separation unit will have the capacity to produce 220 tons per day of oxygen, nitrogen and argon. Oxygen is a critical component in Eldorado's manufacturing process. Oxygen delignification, used in the pulp bleaching process, reduces active chlorine requirements, providing significant operating cost advantages and environmental benefits. The plant will also supply local merchant liquid customers in the Brazilian Midwest and in the neighboring state of Sao Paulo in markets such as petrochemicals, metals and healthcare.
