Air Liquide Invests in a New Research and Technology Center in China

On July 28, 2014, Air Liquide broke ground on its new Research and Technology Center, the Shanghai Research & Technology Center (SRTC), located in the industrial park of Xinzhuang, in the Minhang district of Shanghai, China. This new center will ultimately house 200 highly skilled employees - who include researchers, experts in customer applications, and business development teams - to contribute to the acceleration of the Group's innovation in Asia-Pacific. The scientific experts of Air Liquide will be working in several different areas of research, such as energy efficiency, technologies designed to reduce industrial emissions of CO(2), water treatment, and processes for preserving and freezing food. The center will be operational at the end of 2015. This new Air Liquide Research and Technology Center bolsters the group's research capabilities in Japan and South Korea. It will be connected with the innovation teams based in Europe and in North America. It will first focus on bringing to market innovative solutions adapted to the usages of Chinese customers and consumers. It will leverage the main innovation ecosystems in China, building on existing partnerships with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, as well as Zhejiang University and the research institutes affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Covering 12,000 square meters, the center represents an investment of nearly EUR 25 million. It will house laboratories as well as large pilot platforms with equipment for designing and testing technologies in industrial-scale conditions for the Group's customers. The building is designed in compliance with LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design), a global standard in sustainable building that factors in the efficient water management, good use of energy, and the reduction of emissions. The group's innovation, EUR 265 million innovation expenses in 2013; 321 new patents filed in 2013; and 6,200 employees contribute to innovation around the world, mostly in three entities: Research & Development, advanced Business & Technologies (aB&T), and Engineering and Construction (Global E&C Solutions). They explore new territories, business models, technologies and services, and they support innovation, from the idea to market maturity.

Air Liquide Expands Relationship with OCI N.V. in Beaumont, Texas

Air Liquide announced that it has been selected by Natgasoline LLC, as the supplier of oxygen for its new world-scale methanol plant in Beaumont, Texas. Air Liquide will invest around EUR 90 million in this high growth area for the chemical industry. Air Liquide has entered into a new long-term agreement to supply Natgasoline with 2,400 tonnes of oxygen per day. To meet the growing needs of OCI for the production of natural gas-based chemicals, Air Liquide will build a new, state-of-the-art, energy efficient Air Separation Unit (ASU) producing oxygen, nitrogen and argon. Connected to Air Liquide's extensive pipeline network along the Gulf Coast in Texas and Louisiana, allowing for high reliability of supply, the ASU is expected to be commissioned by the second half of 2016. The new Natgasoline LLC methanol plant will produce approximately 5,000 tonnes of methanol per day.

Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology and Air Liquide Signs Phase-II Contract on Biomass Oxygen Enriched Gasification

Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Air Liquide (AL) signed a contract on the technology RandD for biomass oxygen enriched gasification on July 4, 2014. Based on the two-stage downdraft biomass gasifier (biomass feedstock: 3 ton/d), Thermo-chemical Conversion Group of QIBEBT and AL developed oxygen enriched gasification technology for the production of bio-syngas. This is the first phase of the contract. Compared with traditional process (e.g. biomass air/steam/catalytic gasification, etc.), the novel process is superior with high calorific value (>10MJ/Nm3), low tar (< 20mg/Nm3) and suitable H2/CO (about 1:1) fordimethyl ether (DME) synthesis. In order to further optimize oxygen enriched gasification technology, AL and QIBEBT agreed to advance their mutual cooperation and signed the Phase-II contract in the areas of promoting oxygen load of combustion and pyrolysis zone of gasifier, impact of oxygen distribution on syngas composition and heat value, biomass pyrolysis gas ignition under oxygen enrichment condition, and content of carbon in ash and slag.
