Messer starts up new nitrogen generator in China

Industrial gases giant Messer has expanded its China operations following the start-up of a new generator in Xiangtan, Hunan Province announced today (7th March).

The generator is locator on the premises of Hunan Yuneng New Energy Battery Materials Co., Ltd. (Yuneng) – a major customer of Messer which will receive nitrogen from the remote-controlled on-site plant.
