LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world's only
combined gases and chemicals company, Air Products (NYSE: APD) brings unique
skills and insight to the fats and oils, surfactants, detergents, and related
markets. Company representatives will demonstrate this competitive advantage
through a variety of presentations at the 104^th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo in
Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from April 28-May 1.

Co-presenting with The Farr Group of Companies, Air Products and Walter Farr
will share hydrotreating practices for green diesel production. The
co-presenters will discuss advantages of this newly developing technology, the
most notable of which is elimination of the neutralization of high FFA oils,
as fatty acids are converted directly to green diesel along with the neutral
oil. AOCS attendees who would like to learn more can attend:

"Hydrotreating Practices for Green Diesel Production"

In addition, Air Products will present safer alternatives to oxygenated
solvents and alkylphenol ethoxylates, highlighting some of the
high-performance products that are typical of the company's functional
additives line, in:

testing. Air Products representatives will examine the proposed methods in
light of actual performance of the resulting formulas in:
