Air Products to Rebuild Nitric Acid Purification Facility in Pueblo, Colorado

Air Products announced it will begin rebuilding its nitric acid purification facility in Pueblo, Colo. The upgrade is a result of an accident that damaged the facility earlier this year.

"This investment in the facility upgrade reaffirms our commitment to the high purity process chemicals business and will allow us to better serve our North American customers," said Mike Hilton, vice president, Electronic Businesses at Air Products.

The construction will not interfere with normal plant operations or with the other product lines manufactured at the facility. The rebuild is scheduled to be completed early in 2005.
