HOUSTON (ICIS)--Praxair China plans to build an air-separation unit, part of a long-term supply contract it signed with Beijing Jin Jing Solar Materials, Praxair said on Monday.

In addition to the unit, Praxair will build two vacuum-pressure-swing-adsorption plants and one steam-methane-reforming plant to meet the oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen needs of the project, it said.

The units will start up in the first quarter of 2012, according to the company. They will supply industrial gases for the company's glass project.

The gases will help reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions as well as save money on natural-gas costs, Praxair said.

Beijing Jin Jing’s project involves low-emissivity (low-e) oxy-fuel float glass production lines, according to Praxair.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
