Drawing on its international expertise in welding and cutting gases, Air Liquide has pioneered an innovative offer that eases the difficult work of welders: Qlixbi, a breakthrough packaged gas offer including a new generation gas cylinder and a suite of digital solutions designed with welders, for welders. We spoke to Craig Hall, managing director at IM Fabrications Ltd., about the benefits that Qlixbi have brought to his workshop.
California and China both understand just how important it is to develop new energy sources if we are to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. California is deeply invested in sustainable development and for several years now has had an ambitious hydrogen mobility policy – this, in a country where the car is queen and oil is its king. China, whose cities are suffocating beneath clouds of particle emissions, is speeding up its deployment of hydrogen technology in the transport sector.
Hydrogen mobility is a topic of growing interest and is now seen as a viable alternative to combustion and all-electric vehicles. Let's take a look at six countries at the forefront of this energy revolution and where Air Liquide is deeply involved. Stop one with Japan and Germany, which are pioneers in this field.
It was 150 years ago!
The periodic table of elements was conceived in 1869 by Dmitri Ivanovitch Mendeleïev. Discover some of these molecules on our Gas Encyclopedia.
In April 2017, Air Liquide entered into a partnership with the U.S. start-up accelerator Techstars. Launched in 2007 in Colorado, this accelerator partners with large companies to select and support start-ups that teach them their agile and focused working method in return. Techstars has served as a springboard for over 1,500 projects.
As the first and only gas company to offer an in-house craft beer expertise, Air Liquide, through its U.S. subsidiary Airgas, supports the bubbling American craft beer market. We met with Dan Peterson, Brewmaster & Director of Operations at Ferment Brewing Company.
Air Liquide designs, produces and provides the high purity gases and advanced materials required to manufacture the latest-generation electronics components. They are used to inert the manufacturing environment, or as deposition and etching materials for the manufacturing of chips and flat panels. Discover a few of these applications here.

On the occasion of the 2019 Paris Air Show, Air Liquide presented its innovative solutions in space and aerospace, such as the use of hydrogen as a viable energy alternative for aircraft. It was also an opportunity to discover new technologies developed for the future Ariane 6 launcher or for electric propulsion for satellites and its projects in connection with space exploration (moon village, ExoMars, etc.).
In 2018, Air Liquide made significant strides in the United States, the world's largest industrial gases market. Thanks to its customer-centric mindset, operational excellence, and unique innovation approach, the Group offers customers of all sizes reliable gas supply and high-value solutions that allow them to improve competitiveness and think ahead to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
"Behind any exceptional patient service, there are always engaged employees"
The healthcare industry is experiencing some major shifts, including aging populations, accelerated urban growth, technological progress, sedentary lifestyles, and the increase of chronic illnesses. Healthcare systems, which are often organized around hospitals, do not always encourage support for chronic diseases that require regular, long term monitoring.
Air Liquide was present at VivaTech with a booth located at heart of the Hall of Tech. Health, green tech, food, safety, and employee integration: a great opportunity to discover the potential of Tech4Good (innovation for the common good) by testing the technologies developed by four start-ups, partners of Air Liquide, and by experiencing numerous pitches given by Group experts, start-ups and partners.
In March 2017, as part of its effort to become a leader in customer satisfaction in its industry, Air Liquide launched the digital platform, Voice of the Customer, to collect and analyze customer reviews in real time throughout the world.
