Praxair Industrial Gases for Efficiency in the Energy Industry

Powering the world forward to a more sustainable future

Everywhere you look, Praxair gases and applications are hard at work helping to improve the sustainability of a variety of fuels. From supplying hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles, production of lower carbon liquefied natural gas (LNG), to building and operating world-class oxygen supply systems for gasification, and syngas production. All theses applications and others aid in the production of sustainable fuels and chemicals like renewable diesel and biogas based LNG.the next generation of biofuels, While it's critical to meet today's energy needs, it's even more important to sustainably meet the demands of tomorrow. That’s why we continue to power to a cleaner future by developing gas supply systems that reduce our customers' cost of ownership and industrial gas applications that improve their productivity.

Praxair Industrial Applications for the Energy Industry

Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion

Our patented Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion applications can help lower NOx emissions in your industrial boilers, furnaces and fired heaters by up to 70%. When burning high-moisture high-ash fuels, this technology can increase output to nameplate capacity, while stabilizing and improving flame performance. Regardless of the application, Praxair’s Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion is designed to help you generate cleaner power, faster.

Gasification and Syngas

With more than 100 years of experience designing, building and operating commercial air separation units, Praxair has the technology and world-class engineering talent required to deliver the most efficient, reliable and competitively-priced oxygen supply for your gasification needs. We also offer partial oxidation (POx) technologies for improving production and quality of syngas from natural gas and other carbon sources ranging from coal to biomass to municipal waste.

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

Utilizing the heat removing properties of cryogenic liquid nitrogen, Praxair systems convert natural gas to LNG. Availability of Liquefied Natural Gas provides an economic fuel alternative to remote land-based and marine use points

Nitrogen Stripping

Remove harmful dissolved gases from your process fluids with our nitrogen stripping application. Together we can tailor a system that will meet your purity requirements.

Direct Oxygen Injection

Praxair’s patented Direct Oxygen Injection technology improves oxygen transfer rates, production capacity and productivity. It also reduces foaming and flooding in your oxygen-limited aerobic fermentation and propagation reactors.

VOC Treatment & Recovery

Using liquid nitrogen as an indirect refrigerant, this application can condense Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in your process streams, returning valuable products back to your business while utilizing the nitrogen for purging and blanketing operations.

Hydrogen for Fuel Cells

We’ve been providing hydrogen fuel and related technical support to fuel-cell developers and vehicle fleets for over a decade. And as the technologies become even more widespread, we are even better suited to supply the hydrogen and fueling systems your facility requires.

Industrial services for the energy industry

We do more than provide industrial gases and applications to the energy industry. We will help you to optimize every step of your process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of industrial services that help you monitor and manage your gas supply so you can focus on being as productive and efficient as possible.
