Guildford/UK – Linde has recently announced that it has started up a new air separation unit (ASU) in Freeport, Texas, as part of a long-term agreement to supply industrial gases to Meglobal's new ethylene glycol (EG) plant in Oyster Creek, Texas.

The new ASU will safely and reliably supply oxygen and nitrogen to Meglobal’s Oyster Creek unit which will be used for its EG manufacturing process. EG is used as a raw material in a variety of products, such as polyester fibers, polyethylene terephthalate resins for liquid and food containers, and other industrial applications. The ASU will also supply Linde's extensive industrial gas pipeline system and add new argon capacity.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

In addition to the ASU, Linde started a new carbon dioxide (CO2) plant in Freeport, Texas, that will recycle the crude CO2 supplied from the 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.
