CO₂ purification and liquefaction

Climate-friendly way to source CO₂. Climate mitigation in focus. Rising environmental and climate mitigation pressures mean that more and more companies are looking for flexible solutions to improve their carbon footprint. In particular, they are keen to meet the carbon dioxide (CO₂) needs without generating new streams of this gas. One solution is to recycle CO₂ from off-gas streams that would otherwise be vented to the atmosphere. CO₂ recycling with an on-site solution not only contributes to climate and environmental protection, it also has the added bonus of low supply costs and immediate availability of the gas.

Partner of choice. World leader in cryogenic technology, Linde has designed and supplied several CO₂ purification and liquefaction plants worldwide – including the world‘s largest units delivering the industry’s highest availability levels. Our plants are therefore the solution of choice where performance, quality and reliability are a must. Depending on your needs, we cover the full solution lifecycle – extending from engineering through supply and construction right up to all-inclusive turnkey solutions on a lump-sum basis.

All plants are designed to maximise cost efficiencies through standardisation and modularisation, while giving you the flexibility you need to adapt to variations in feed gas sources. Design highlights include a compact footprint and ease of maintenance.

Wide application spectrum. Our plants are engineered to produce gaseous or liquid CO₂ to the exact purity level you require – all the way up to food-grade quality as per EIGA or FDA. Major applications of liquid CO₂ include food and beverages, desalination, cooling, cryogenic cleaning, welding and cutting, and healthcare. Purified gaseous CO₂ is also used across a broad industrial spectrum from greenhouse horticulture through chemicals to enhanced oil recovery.

Modular air separation plants

Meeting today’s gas supply challenges in air separation. Companies considering investing in air separation units need to balance a number of factors. A reliable design offering minimal technical risk and maximum operational flexibility is essential to ensure process continuity and meet stringent ...


Cryogenic air separation

Design and construction of air separation plants is part of Linde’s traditional scope of activities, which led to the establishment of Linde’s Engineering Division at the turn of the 19th century. In 1902, the start-up of the world’s first air separation plant initiated the development ...


Coil-wound heat exchangers

Coil-wound heat exchangers (CWHE) have been used in the industry since the early days, when Carl von Linde liquefied air on an industrial scale for the first time in May 1895. Until today, more than thousand coil-wound heat exchangers have been manufac-tured in Linde’s fabrication facilities. Coil-wound ...


LNG import terminals

LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) is becoming the preferred method of transport and storage of natural gas. In the LNG value chain, LNG-receiving terminals play an important role, allowing for the sourcing of LNG from all over the world and creating a new dynamic in the local natural gas market. Installations ...
