Linde has started up two air separation units (ASUs) in China, the world’s biggest industrial gas company said today.
The plants will supply oxygen and nitrogen to Taixing Jinyan Chemical Technology Co to support the production of ethylene oxide.
With a total combined capacity of 29,000Nm3/h, the two ASUs will also supply gases to other customers in Taixing Economic Development Zone, ranked sixth amongst China’s top chemical parks.
“The start-up of these two ASUs will help build network density in one of China’s top chemicals and petrochemicals industrial parks in Eastern China”, said Steven Fang, Head of Linde Greater China.
“This investment sets a foundation for future expansion in the Taixing Economic Development Zone.”
Sun Xiao, Chairman of Jurong Group, added, “We value Linde’s experience in supply reliability, operational capabilities, and commitment to safety in on-site and pipeline gases supply and look forward to this being the start of a long and successful partnership.”
Linde Engineering and BASF have developed a new process that combines treatment of natural gas for pipeline transportation with the simultaneous recovery of helium, liquid hydrocarbons, and purified carbon dioxide (CO2).
