Air Products Awarded Contract by Guofeng Steel
In addition, a new air separation unit (ASU) is to be built and is scheduled to come on-stream in late 2008. This will be the third Air Products-built ASU for Guofeng Steel, which has nine production facilities that manufacture 7 million tons of iron and steel annually. The first ASU was brought on-stream in mid-2005 and the second is expected to be operational by the end of 2007. The on-site gaseous oxygen, nitrogen and argon are used in Guofeng Steel’s blast furnace and basic oxygen furnace for iron and steel making.
