Air Liquide will invest $ 8mn in a CO2 processing plant in Salta

The French company Air Liquide announced a long-term agreement to build and operate the first on-site unit of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture in a petrochemical plant located in the province of Salta, which will demand an investment of 8 million dollars. This plant will purify 70,000 tons per year of carbon dioxide from the operations of a petrochemical complex for use in the food sector as well as in mining, but at the same time, 8,000 indirect tons of this gas will reuse in processes that will not return to the atmosphere.
