Air Products (NYSE: APD), a world-leading industrial gases company, makes its debut today at IE Expo China 2017, Asia’s largest environmental trade fair. Demonstrating its strong commitment to helping China’s manufacturing industry achieve energy savings, emission reductions and sustainable development, the company is showcasing its gas application solutions for environmental protection and monitoring at the tradeshow.
Guided by the Chinese government’s green growth roadmap in the country’s 13th Five-Year Plan, China’s manufacturing industry has been moving towards more environment-friendly operating models. To accelerate the industrial green transformation and upgrading, many manufacturers are relying on advanced technologies and solutions to achieve their environmental targets.
At this year’s IE Expo China, cutting-edge technologies and latest solutions for environmental protection and pollution control are presented at eight pavilions under four key themes—water, waste, air and soil. At booth W3770 in the water pavilion, visitors will find Air Products showcasing its range of Halia® gas application technologies for water and wastewater treatment. Already widely used in industrial and municipal water treatment projects around the world, the robust modular Halia® solutions enable higher flexibility and efficiency at a lower cost by combining the benefits of pure oxygen aeration, and ozone and advanced oxidation, with high mass transfer technology.
Air Products’ total solutions for emissions control and environmental monitoring for a variety of industries are also featured at the booth, including:
- Oxy-fuel/oxy-enrich solutions: As an industry leader in oxy-fuel combustion, Air Products helps industries such as glass, non-ferrous and cement/lime manufacturing effectively reduce emissions, among which nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions can be lowered by more than 80% for glass manufacturing.
- Cryo-Condap® technology: This process helps refrigerator recycling, coating lines, chemical and pharmaceutical industries achieve effective VOC (volatile organic compound) recovery.
- BIP® built-in gas purification technology: This innovative technology provides accurate and reliable analysis results for environmental monitoring together with Air Products’ high purity/ultra-high purity gases and standard gas mixtures.
“Air Products is committed to the highest safety, health and environmental standards. Almost half of our company’s R&D budget is invested in innovations related to the environment and energy, including NOx and greenhouse gases emissions control, VOC recovery, water and wastewater treatment and more,” commented Brandon Fu, vice president, Asia Strategy, Marketing and Technology at Air Products. “Backed by over 75 years of deep expertise in the industrial gases industry and our global innovation capabilities, our advanced technologies have helped many companies meet their environmental goals.
“By participating in IE Expo China, we are able to let more industrial players witness how our innovative technologies and solutions can help China’s manufacturing industry achieve energy savings and reduce emissions for a sustainable future.”
