Praxair Starts Up Oxygen Supply to Pulp Mill in Uruguay

Praxair Inc. announced the start-up of a new 125 tons per day non-cryogenic vacuum-pressure-swing-adsorption (VPSA) plant at the Montes del Plata pulp mill. Under a long-term contract, Praxair will supply gaseous oxygen to the mill located in Punta Pereira, Uruguay. In response to growing environmental regulation, pulp mills are eliminating the use of chemicals in the bleaching process.
