BULK CO2 DELIVERY

Reliable liquid carbon dioxide delivery

Praxair’s Carbon Dioxide is a by-product of the production of ammonia. As one of Europe's leaders in CO2 production, Praxair is able to provide a reliable supply of CO2 to its customers.

In the UK we have our own production site at Wilton (North), and we also have two ship import terminals in Teesside (North) and Tilbury (South). With a fleet of ships operating in the North Sea we can import sufficient volumes from our other production sites in Europe should there be any issues with any UK sites. Praxair CO2 production sites in Europe - from which can supply the UK and Ireland markets with CO2 by tanker ship - include Porsgrunn (Norway) and Sluiskil (Netherlands). Praxair markets carbon dioxide in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy and Scandinavia.

UK Liquid CO2 Supply

No.1 position for Security of Supply of CO2 within UK and Ireland 

Praxair have a CO2 production site in Wilton based on Bioethanol technology with an annual capacity of 250 kt. Praxair also have long term agreements to take volume from the CO2 processing plant at Billingham.

Praxair have the best proven security of supply within the UK & Ireland market, as we are the only UK & Ireland CO2 supplier with 2 import terminals, and a fleet of ships. This allows us to import additional product quickly from our other European sources. This ship advantage  is a key feature as we can import up to 1800 tonnes (i.e. approximately 90 road tanker barrels) in a single delivery. This allows us to quickly distribute CO2 stocks within our normal CO2 supply chain and thus avoid any undue delay or inconvenience to our customers in the event of a breakdown in normal CO2 sources.

To help you optimize your carbon dioxide processes, Praxair offers technical audits of your sites, CO2 storage services, technical support and training assistance.
