Praxair China has announced plans to build a specialty gases facility in the Nanjing Science Park, in Nanjing, China.
This facility will allow Praxair to dramatically increase its presence in the rapidly growing Chinese specialty gas markets," said David Chow, president of Praxair China. "With the addition of high-purity gases, calibration gases and ultra-high-purity gases for the electronics segment, this facility will also be capable of producing complex mixtures for research laboratories and emission testing centers being developed throughout China."
