Systems for the generation, storage, and distribution of gases
for onboard and ground applications

The aerospace market is taking off. In 35 years, air traffic has increased by a factor of six. In the years ahead, aircraft manufacturers may have to produce as many as 2 000 commercial airplanes a year. These airplanes are subject to increasingly stringent environmental requirements and meet optimal safety standards.

Through its expertise in gas separation and control techniques, Air Liquide contributes to these developments by designing systems for the generation, storage, and distribution of gases, for both onboard and ground applications. Our OBOGS and OBIGGS solutions and our respiratory protection systems are found on board civil and military aircraft all over the world.
