The industrial gas giant’s largest ASU in China, the facility will supply krypton and xenon to the growing electronics industry, as well as other air gases for industrial merchant activity.

Sharing the news today (9th July), Air Liquide said it has signed a new 20-year-long agreement with Jiangsu Shagang Group for the supply of industrial gases to the city within the Jiangsu Province.
