Today we are celebrating the 14th anniversary of the presence of MELFI(1) on board the International Space Station (ISS). This cold production system , this “refrigerator of space”, allows the conservation of scientific samples in space at -80°C. Initially planned for 2 years, it now records more than 14 years of continuous operation! An opportunity for us to return to the Group’s cutting-edge activities in space.
In over 50 years, Air Liquide has developed unique know-how across the entire hydrogen chain (from production to storage and distribution). Through its expertise, the Group contributes to the wider use of hydrogen as a source of clean energy.
Every day, Air Liquide serves a large number of industries and, for each customer, our commitment remains the same: contributing to the quality of their products and their growth, while optimizing their efficiency and reducing their environmental footprint. We therefore work in partnership with them to design innovative solutions.
Smartphones, connected cars, virtual reality, artificial intelligence: electronics power these surging technologies. A booming market, in which your Group has a key role to play, in particular through its innovative molecules and associated equipment.
As you all know, Air Liquide is a Group focused on the long term. We grow with the strong belief that the future is prepared today and that we must always be capable of identifying and taking advantage of good opportunities. This leads us to provide support to deeptech start-ups; those companies that will create breakthroughs in their design and production methods.
