Air Liquide (AL) recently announced that it signed 48 new long-term On-Site contracts for its Industrial Merchant business line in 2021. The gas volumes the Group will provide in the context of these new contracts are twice those provided within the contracts signed in 2020.
The new contracts will mainly serve nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen in the energy, waste and water treatment, secondary electronics, mining and manufacturing growing markets.
According to AL, On-Site unit eliminates the need to liquefy gases for their transportation, which saves energy, but also reduces the number of trucks and mileage needed to deliver these products to the customer. Then the solutions reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to the Sustainable Development objectives.
Matthieu Giard, Vice President of AL said “This illustrates our customers’ confidence in AL’s capacity to provide a competitive and reliable supply of industrial gases over the long term.”
