White Martins Gases Industriais Ltda. Key Developments

White Martins Starts Up Air Separation Plant in Brazil

White Martins started up a new 800 tons per day air separation plant in the state of Minas Gerais, located in southeastern Brazil. Under a long-term contract, Praxair's new plant will supply industrial gases to ArcelorMittal. The energy-efficient air separation plant will enable ArcelorMittal to serve customers across all major steel-consuming industries, including automotive, mining, construction, and household appliances and packaging. Praxair is ArcelorMittal's main industrial gases supplier in Brazil, delivering gases to five of its facilities located in Espirito Santo, Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo states. The Minas Gerais plant will also supply local merchant liquid customers in the Brazilian southeast in such segments as mining, primary metals, automotive, manufacturing and healthcare. Minas Gerais is Brazil's third state economy and contributes over 9% of Brazil's GDP, with the industrial sector being a major contributor.

White Martins Starts Up Plant to Supply Eldorado in Brazil

White Martins has started up a new air separation plant in the state of Mato Grosso, in Brazil's fast growing Midwest region. As part of a long-term contract, Praxair will supply Eldorado Celulose e Papel's single-line pulp mill. The new air separation unit will have the capacity to produce 220 tons per day of oxygen, nitrogen and argon. Oxygen is a critical component in Eldorado's manufacturing process. Oxygen delignification, used in the pulp bleaching process, reduces active chlorine requirements, providing significant operating cost advantages and environmental benefits. The plant will also supply local merchant liquid customers in the Brazilian Midwest and in the neighboring state of Sao Paulo in markets such as petrochemicals, metals and healthcare.
