Airgas to Build Two Production Facilities in California
(Airgas/Business Wire) Airgas USA, LLC, an Air Liquide company, today announced plans to increase its presence in California with the construction of a new liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) production facility in Stockton, CA and the expansion of an air separation unit (ASU) in Etiwanda, CA. Once on-stream, the two facilities will significantly increase the company’s merchant gas capabilities in the state.
The new facility in Stockton, CA will produce liquid CO2 and support the manufacturing of dry ice used in a variety of customer applications, from water treatment and food chilling to freezing systems and brewing and winemaking. The plant’s process will use CO2 by-product from Pacific Ethanol’s nearby ethanol production facility. With the additional plant in Stockton, Airgas will have three strategically located CO2 plants in Northern, Central, and Southern California. READ MORE
