Saving energy and CO2 by constructing a pipeline

To supply nitrogen to its customers in the Tessenderlo region, Praxair invested in the construction of a seven kilometer pipeline from its production unit in Lommel.

The pipeline avoids the need for 550 truckloads and 71,500 km of transport each year, and transporting nitrogen through the pipeline allows gaseous nitrogen to be used rather than the liquefied form used for deliveries by truck. As the production of gaseous nitrogen consumes far less energy than the production of liquefied nitrogen, 36540 GJ per year could be saved, representing 1624t of CO2-equivalents.
