LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE:APD) will
highlight the environmental and operational benefits of its Cryo-Condap^®
nitrogen condensation system for the recovery and abatement of volatile
organic compounds (VOCs) at the 2012 ChemInnovations Conference & Exhibition
in New Orleans, La., from November 14-15. This proprietary cryogenic
technology is one of several industrial gas solutions that Air Products will
feature at this year's show to help chemical process industry professionals
reduce their risk of noncompliance, improve safety, and lower costs.

Air Products' Cryo-Condap^® system uses liquid nitrogen (LIN) to condense and
freeze VOC vapors. The condensate and frozen particles are then removed from
the process, leaving a clean process gas stream that can be discharged into
the atmosphere. This technology not only enables customers to conform to the
toughest environmental regulations by reducing VOC emissions to below
acceptable legislative levels, but can also recover nearly 100% of most
solvents, enabling reuse in the process. Additionally, during the solvent
recovery process, the LIN is vaporized into nitrogen gas, which can be reused
for other applications, such as purging or blanketing, thus reducing operating

Other industrial gas solutions to be featured by Air Products include the
company's PRISM^® Hydrogen Generator, which provides cost-effective and
reliable on-site gas generation of volumes from 2,000 scfh up to more than
10,000 scfh. The company also offers a Cryogenic Hydrogen Compressor, which is
a proprietary high-pressure liquid hydrogen supply system that instantly
matches changing production needs, resulting in reduced operating costs and
minimum downtime. Air Products will also highlight its new Gas Converter
mobile app, which quickly and easily converts weight and volume measures for
common industrial gases including nitrogen, oxygen, argon, hydrogen, helium
and carbon dioxide.

ChemInnovations attendees can stop by Booth #2435 to speak with an Air
Products specialist about the company's industrial gas solutions for a wide
range of chemical processing applications, including hydrogenation, process
cooling, particle size reduction, inerting and blanketing, sparging and
stripping, wastewater treatment and oxidation, as well as the company's
various industrial gas supply options for small-volume to large-volume users.
