Linde has started up a new air separation unit (ASU) in Freeport, Texas, which further expands the industrial gas giant’s capacity on the US Gulf Coast.
The new ASU will supply oxygen and nitrogen to MEGlobal’s new ethylene glycol (EG) plant in Oyster Creek, Texas, for use in its EG manufacturing process. The ASU will also supply Linde’s extensive industrial gas pipeline system and add new argon capacity.
In addition to the ASU, Linde started a new carbon dioxide (CO2) plant in Freeport, Texas, that will recycle the crude CO2 supplied from an MEGlobal process. The crude CO2 will be purified and liquefied into commercial grades to serve customers in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, where it is used to carbonate drinks, as well as to freeze, chill, preserve and package food.
“We are excited to supply MEGlobal’s new facility in Oyster Creek,” said Jeff Barnhard, Vice-President South Region, Linde.
