Linde contracted to supply methane and hydrogen to Evonik
Linde Gas Singapore has agreed to supply methane and hydrogen to Evonik Methionine SEA's second world-scale methionine complex in Singapore (Me6).
The contract signed is Linde's second long-term gases supply contract signed with Evonik in the country so far.
Evonik animal nutrition business line head Dr Emmanuel Auer said: "Evonik already works with The Linde Group in several facilities around the world, and we are very glad to extend our partnership with Linde in Singapore.
“With this latest investment, Linde becomes a strategic partner for the Evonik methionine complex in Singapore in on-site gases facilities and related improvement projects.”
Under the latest contract, Linde will build and operate a new gas production and supply facility that will be fully integrated with Evonik’s production complex for DL-methionine.
The investment includes a steam reformer with Linde-designed carbon dioxide recovery technology to limit carbon emission into the atmosphere and Linde’s high-performance methane pressure swing adsorption system, according to a statement posted on the company's website.
The Me6 complex is expected to become operational in 2019.
Linde’s engineering division takes responsibility to build the gases facility based on technologies designed to increase energy efficiency and environmental performance.
The second integrated gas plant being built for Evonik will also use natural gas.
