HOUSTON (ICIS)--Air Liquide has started a new air separation unit (ASU) at its Geismar facility in Louisiana, the company said on Monday.
The unit will increase the site’s capacity of nitrogen, oxygen and argon. The company did not provide specific capacity amounts.
Company officials were not available for comment.
The unit began commercial production in October 2011.
