 Air Liquide, a leader in gases for industry, health and the environment, has signed a long-term contract with Fujian Shenyuan New Materials Co., Ltd (Fujian Shenyuan) to supply industrial gases for its caprolactam production project located in Lianjiang Kemen Economic & Development Zone, Fujian Province, South-East of China.

Under the terms of the contract, Air Liquide will invest in an industrial gases complex consisting of eight units including an Air Separation Unit of 2,000 tonnes of oxygen per day, a Gasification unit, a Purification unit of synthesis gas (Rectisol) and an ammonia plant to supply hydrogen, nitrogen and ammonia.

 Six plants out of the eight are based on Air Liquide's proprietary technologies. They will contribute to purify synthesis gas and avoid sulphur emissions, which are notably responsible for acid rain. These plants, to be commissioned beginning of 2016, will produce 75,000 Nm(3) /h of hydrogen and 250,000 tonnes per year of ammonia, which are necessary for the production of caprolactam, an intermediate for nylon in the textiles industry.

Fujian Shenyuan is a private company. The Group who owns Fujian Shenyuan also owns two other downstream companies, to which Fujian Shenyuan will supply 100% of its caprolactam production. These two companies together have a 12% market share of the nylon textile filament market in China.

Chairman Chen of Fujian Shenyuan, said: "We are delighted to cooperate with Air Liquide, with which we share the same long term industrial vision, and have full confidence in its technological capability to meet our demand."
