Mines & Quarries

Africa represents about 30% of the world's non-energy mineral resource base (bauxite, copper, cobalt, chromite, etc.) and produces nearly 60 minerals and metals. Almost half of the countries on the continent export mining products. This activity is important and diverse, the players in this sector need a reliable supplier, able to meet each project’s requirements. At Air Liquide, we offer a range of products (gas and consumables) and know-how that meet the highest safety, quality and productivity requirements.

We support companies in optimizing processes, reducing operating costs and resources while preserving the environment.

In West and Central Africa, we support companies in optimizing processes, reducing operating costs and resources while preserving the environment. We support them maximize their processes with customized solutions.

Food & Beverage

When it comes to consumer expectations in the food and beverage industry, safety and quality are the most important. It takes extensive experience and know-how to meet rigorous standards for consistency in taste, fizz, quality and strength of packaging.

We have diversified our offer over time and adapted our solutions to the specific needs of our customers:

Segmentation Your needs Our offer
Transportation Maintain the cold chain

Cryogenic fluids

From producer to consumer, Air Liquide Ghana offers a set of cooling solutions with liquid nitrogen or dry ice to preserve the quality and freshness of your products (even frozen) in compliance with highest regulations

Beverage

Carbonation

Inerting / Deoxygenation

Carbon dioxide to make your drinks sparkle! Bubbles are obtained naturally for fermented beverages or by adding carbon dioxide to carbonated water and sodas.

Food products, solid or liquid, in contact with the ambient air contain dissolved oxygen which can damage them. The inerting process enables to protect them and to retain all their properties.

Dairy / Ultra-Fresh / Ice Cream Multiples We improve the quality of the products by the injecting protective gases which increase the lifetime of the product.
Meat / Sausages / Seafood / Ready meals Cryogenic freezing Cold processes in food (freezing and rapid cooling) require carbon dioxide (carbon dioxyde) and gaseous or liquid nitrogen (nitrogen).
Fish farming Oxygenation of ponds The oxygen produced by Air Liquide is injected into ponds and streams for quality breeding.
Air Liquide has been a major player in food market, helping suppliers preserve food and extend its shelf-life and freshness by packaging it in protective atmospheres.
Meeting the needs of a highly diversified industry.
