This is the most prestigious forum of political discussion in the scope of climate protection, attracting the attention of the entire world.
Air Liquide is deeply involved in the development of technologies to help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions (through energy efficiency, Carbon Capture and Storage, second generation biofuels, photovoltaics) and to help adapt to climate change (H2 fuel cells, water treatment).
Air Liquide will present during the Exhibition, information about innovative technologies that are developed to help reduce global GHG emissions:
Oxy-combustion, an innovative environmental solution
Many industrial processes (glass industry, mettalurgy, steel…) use combustion process. Using oxygen in large combustion units to increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
