Air Products acquired General Electric’s gasification business in 2018 which included the 50% stake in a syngas joint venture with China Shenhua Coal to Liquid and Chemical, a subsidiary of China Energy Group. It has now bought the remaining stake to bring its ownership to 100%.

With this transaction, Air Products aims to strengthen its broader gasification technology portfolio in China. The financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
