Air Products Shares Unique Gases And Chemicals Know-How At 104th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world's only combined gases and chemicals company, Air Products (NYSE: APD) brings unique skills and insight to the fats and oils, surfactants, detergents, and related markets. Company representatives will demonstrate this competitive advantage through a variety of presentations at the 104 th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from April 28-May 1.

Co-presenting with The Farr Group of Companies, Air Products and Walter Farr will share hydrotreating practices for green diesel production. The co-presenters will discuss advantages of this newly developing technology, the most notable of which is elimination of the neutralization of high FFA oils, as fatty acids are converted directly to green diesel along with the neutral oil. AOCS attendees who would like to learn more can attend:
