Air Liquide to Invest EUR 40 Million in New Air Separation Unit

Air Liquide has announced that it will invest around EUR 40 million in a new Air Separation Unit, or ASU, that will supply Klabin, a paper manufacturer, with oxygen. Under the terms of this agreement, Air Liquide will invest around EUR 40 million in a new ASU that will supply more than 160 tonnes of oxygen per day to Klabin's new factory located in Ortigueira, as well as to Klabin's other site in Telemaco Borba, both located in the state of Parana. The oxygen produced by Air Liquide's ASU will be used to process and whiten pulp in a more efficient and environmentally friendly manner. This unit will be designed and built by Air Liquide Engineering and Construction teams, using technologies that offer energy efficiency as well as optimal performance and safety. This new ASU will also allow Air Liquide to provide oxygen, nitrogen and argon to customers in the industrial and healthcare sectors in the regions of Parana, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul and Mato Grosso do Sul.
