Praxair China opens Global Technology Centre in Shanghai

The new Praxair China Technology Centre is a state-of-the-art facility for applications engineers and Research and Development

Praxair China Investment Company, a subsidiary of Praxair, Inc. has announced the opening of its state-of-the-art Global Technology Centre in Shanghai, supporting the company’s development and implementation of innovative applications technologies.

Praxair supplies gases such as nitrogen, hydrogen, arsine, phosphine, silane and ammonia used in III-V and III-nitride MOCVD growth.

The Praxair China Technology Centre is located in the Jinqiao Development Zone of Pudong New Area.

The centre houses laboratories, including pilot and demonstration facilities, to support a growing team of Praxair engineers and scientists who work with customers in China in the steel, combustion, metal fabrication, metals and materials processing, pharmaceuticals, water treatment and electronics segments.

“The new Praxair China Technology Center is a state-of-the-art facility for our applications engineers and R&D organisation,” says Minda Ho, president of Praxair China.

“These laboratories enable us to work closely with our business partners and customers to develop innovative products that meet their unique needs. In addition, Chinese regulations for emissions reduction are becoming more stringent and are world-class in several areas. Praxair’s experience will allow us to quickly replicate our applications technologies to contribute to our customers’ needs for cleaner air and water. We look forward to delivering novel gas applications from this centre to our customers across China,” adds Ho.

“The inauguration of the Praxair China Technology Centre builds on our rich tradition of innovation,” comments Amitabh Gupta, executive director of Praxair Asia R&D and Applications. “Praxair technical teams are developing applications to help customers increase productivity, achieve energy savings and improve environmental performance through emissions reductions. The development and application of these innovative products and services enables sustainable development, while truly making our planet more productive.”

“China is our largest and fastest growing market in Asia and this center is developing technology that will not only be used in China but also in Praxair’s businesses around the world,” adds Ray Roberge, Praxair’s senior vice president and chief technology officer.

“In addition, we are collaborating with several respected universities across China on important areas of research, which is a strategic advantage for Praxair. The innovation stemming from these projects and our ability to attract and recruit top talent from these and other educational institutions are key reasons we chose to open our facility here,” he continues.
