New develpoments for preservation of food


In the framework of a seminar on agrofood industry celebrated in Madrid, several experts of  Carburos Metálicos presented the latest innovations launched by the company in the field of freezing and cooling systems and other food applications.

Some of these new developments have been the result of research projects carried out under MATGAS contracts.


A project on capture and sustainable uses of CO2, lead by Carburos Metálicos, has been selected by the CENIT program.

The CENIT project titled
"New Industrial and Sustainable uses of CO2- SOST-CO2" lead by CARBUROS METÁLICOS has been included in the final list of granted proposals by CDTI (Centre for Development of Industrial Technology) through the program Ingenio 2010.

Phase equilibria in soft-matter materials, such as complex fluids, are often dominated by mesoscopic fluctuations, which make the description of very different systems universal and thus relatively simple. In our presentation we explain how mesoscopic fluctuations affect the nature of phase equilibria in complex fluids and fundamentally change thermodynamics of curved surfaces.

Dr. Monty Alger, the new Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Air Products, visited MatGas' facilities.

During his visit he had the opportunity to see our five laboratories and meet our staff. He encouraged all of us to continue with enthusiasm our good job.




Air Products' hydrogen fueling station in USA
February 2008


Carburos Metálicos, belonging to Group Air Products and partner of MatGas, will supply hydrogen fuel at Expoagua Zaragoza 2008. This facility will produce on site hydrogen via electrolysis for the fueling of the special vehicles and buses that will run during the event. 

The hydrogen fueling station will have a supplying capacity of 40 kg/day of compressed hydrogen gas that will be produced by means of water electrolysis. It will have a maximum load of 108 kg of hydrogen, that in energetic terms is equivalent to 300 kg of gasoline (the fuel load corresponding to 6 conventional cars).
