LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD)
will highlight the company's proprietary oxygen injection technologies for
cement and lime manufacturing at the 2013 IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Conference in
Orlando, Fla., from April 14-16. The company's technologies can help cement
and lime manufacturers improve combustion and lower costs, while increasing
alternative fuel usage and reducing emissions.

Air Products has helped customers with all types of kilns improve their
operations by implementing oxygen-enhanced combustion in cement and lime
manufacturing. Oxygen enrichment is a flexible, efficient, cost-effective
technology that can help improve the profitability of cement and lime
production. With minimal capital investment, cement and lime manufacturers can
increase alternative fuel usage, reduce fossil fuel consumption and CO[2]
emissions, improve burning zone control and kiln stability, and attain more
consistent product quality and production rates.

Conference attendees can stop by Booth 316/318 to speak with an Air Products
combustion engineer about the benefits of the company's oxygen injection
technologies, which can be installed in various pyroprocessing zones by
on-site specialists who provide technical assistance during start-up, as well
as ongoing technical support after installation. The booth will also feature a
digital presentation that provides details on how oxygen-enhanced production
works, when it makes sense to implement it, how to get started, and the
benefits of using oxygen.

Attendees can also learn about Air Products' state-of-the-art Clean Energy
Laboratory, which enables remote monitoring of real-time combustion tests from
locations around the world. Located in Allentown, Pa., the Clean Energy
Laboratory facilitates development and full-scale testing of actual combustion
and gasification systems using a full spectrum of gaseous, liquid, and solid
fuels from customers.

For over 50 years, Air Products has been developing innovative oxygen-based
combustion technologies to help customers improve productivity, reduce energy
consumption, reduce emissions, and increase the use of alternative fuels. For
