Air Products is planning a US$10 million investment at its St Louis, Missouri facility in the US to significantly increase hollow fiber membrane production.

The production improvement project is driven by strong customer demand in the biogas and hydrogen recovery applications, as well as customer needs for the use of nitrogen for the aerospace industry and dehydration products.

The investment will impact product lines such as the PRISM GreenDry membrane dryer and the PRISM GreenSep membrane separator. The project will also increase the production of PRISM N2Sep membranes, which are the foundation of Air Products’ recently announced PRISM InertPro Membrane System, a new nitrogen generator for the energy and gas industry.

"We're excited to announce this investment in our production facility that will deliver substantial capacity and efficiency enhancements to support the growing membrane markets,” said Nick Sillitto, Air Products' Site Manager of the St Louis facility.
