Enhancing Efficiency with Oxygen Fuel Technology The glass industry is under severe cost constraints and increasing environmental pressure to reduce emissions. Air Liquide provides glass manufacturers with solutions to improve their competitiveness and environmental footprint. As long standing experts in oxy-combustion, which is the process of burning a fuel using pure oxygen instead of air as the primary oxidant, we have substantial R&D resources and a strong experience in glass making thanks to our extensive network of field experts. Long standing experts in oxy-combustion We master oxy-combustion technologies, for example in designing patented burners and modeling heating in furnaces. We leverage on this know-how and put it to work for our customers through a personalized approach. Our technologies allow us to partner with glassmakers from the conception to the commissioning and the full operation of their furnaces.Air Liquide markets comprehensive gas solutions customized to all subsectors of the industry, ranging from tableware and flat glass, to technical glass such as fiberglass or solar panels.

Air Liquide’s gases and technologies are helping agricultural enterprises improve quality and productivity in a wide range of applications from harvest protection to greenhouses and modified atmosphere packaging. Through the intelligent use of gases and related technologies, Air Liquide has developed solutions for: protecting harvested grains and cereals from bug infestations with carbon dioxide; fire suppression; control of greenhouse atmospheres; and, preserving the freshness of your products with modified atmosphere packaging.
Air Liquide’s chilling, mixing and freezing solutions can enhance food-processing productivity. In the world of food processing, food safety, efficiency and product quality are primary concerns in addition to taste and texture. Air Liquide provides high-quality gases, services and technologies for chilling, temperature control, freezing, crust-freezing and IQF to help improve productivity and preserving the quality of almost any type of processed food product.
Controlling the atmosphere around a food product is key to extending product shelf life and maintaining an attractive customer presentation. Our experts understand the importance of gas flush packaging, a process that replaces package headspace with a beneficial gas or mixture of gases that will dramatically slow bacterial growth and oxidative reactions.
The task of transporting foods with the cold chain intact requires precision. Refrigerated transport solutions must be customized according to travel distance, food types and to the trans-shipment period from production source to warehouse to market. Air Liquide leads the industry in refrigeration solutions for precise cooling requirements. We apply decades of experience in the food industry to define the optimal cold transport solution for any product, from gourmet ice creams to prepared meals in central kitchen.
