Air Products’ Oxygen Enrichment for Cement and Lime Manufacturing Receives “Technology of the Year” Award at Global Fuels Conference in Malaysia

(LEHIGH VALLEY, Pennsylvania) — Air Products’ (NYSE: APD) oxygen enrichment technology for cement and lime manufacturing was recently recognized by Global Cement magazine as the “Global Alternative Fuels Technology of the Year.” The award, given annually for the most innovative technology for alternative fuel use, was presented at the 5th Global Fuels Conference & Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in April.

Oxygen enrichment is a flexible, efficient and cost-effective technology that allows manufacturers to overcome the challenges of maintaining burning zone temperature and product quality when burning alternative fuels. The technology enables cement and lime producers to burn alternative fuels more consistently and at a higher flame temperature. Enriching the oxygen concentration of combustion air can help manufacturers increase current fuel substitution rates by 30 percent to 80 percent, maintain or increase production, and lower operating costs.

Air Products presented a paper at the conference that explained the benefits of its proprietary technology and shared results of a recent installation in Asia that enabled a customer to increase the use of waste fuels and lower its costs. For more details, visit
