Air Products brings ultra-high-purity gas plant onstream in Nanjing

By Mary Page Bailey |

Air Products (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; www.airproducts.com) announced that its new plant in the Pukou Economic Development Zone (PKEDZ), Nanjing, eastern China, has come on-stream to supply ultra-high purity gases to its customer in the park. The facility also provides liquid nitrogen to merchant customers in and around Nanjing. The company announced this investment in new capacity last year.


The PKEDZ is a state-level high-tech park that is growing into a hub for advanced manufacturing sectors including integrated circuit (IC), new materials and bio-medicine. It is only 35 kilometers away from the Nanjing Chemical Industry Park (NCIP), where Air Products has already built a leading position over the past decade with three large air separation units serving several hundred customers in the park and across Nanjing through pipelines and various other supply modes.


“We are excited to have brought this strategic milestone project on-stream in short lead time to serve both our international customer in PKEDZ and the increasing demand in Nanjing,” said Frank Yu, vice presidentEastern China, Industrial Gases, at Air Products. “Air Products has already established a strong position in Nanjing and eastern China with integrated and reliable supply capabilities. We will continue to invest and play our role to support the fast-growing semiconductor industry driven by the Made in China 2025 strategy and the government’s high-tech manufacturing target under the 13th Five-Year Plan.”
