Hydrocarbon Engineering,


Air Products has announced that it will build, own and operate two air separation units (ASUs) to provide oxygen and nitrogen to Eastman's facility in Kingsport, Tennessee, US under new long-term agreements.

The ASUs are targeted to be onstream in early 2021.

The units to be constructed will replace Air Products' 35-year-old ASUs operating at the Kingsport facility.

Air Products has been supplying Eastman in Kingsport since 1983, when Eastman started up the first coal gasification facility in the US to produce chemicals from syngas. Eastman's Kingsport facility is one of the largest chemical facilities in North America.
