Air Liquide to establish sixth carbon dioxide liquefaction plant in California

DBR Staff Writer Published 15 March 2013

Air Liquide Industrial US is set to establish a new 450-ton carbon dioxide liquefaction plant in the California central valley for beverage and other manufacturing industries.

The new plant will source carbon dioxide gases from an ethanol plant of Calgren Renewable Fuels and will purify and liquefy it to meet beverage grade specifications for different beverage and other manufacturing industries in the region.

The company expects that this plant will be ready for manufacturing by the end of 2013 and will serve central valley and the Los Angeles basin customers.

Air Liquide Industrial US president Said Mark Lostak: "Today's announcements signify Air Liquide's continued commitment to growth in California and, most importantly, high quality products and service to customers throughout the region."

Currently operating five industrial gas liquefaction plants in California, the new plant marks the sixth plant for the company.

Besides this, the company will also expand its carbon dioxide plant in its Wilmington, California to increase plant capacity and storage, and improve service to the southern California market.
