Linde already supplies carbon monoxide, oxygen and nitrogen to Celanese from its Clear Lake facility and US Gulf Coast pipeline system
Linde announced that it has started supplying clean hydrogen and captured carbon dioxide to Celanese, a global chemical and specialty materials company.
Linde is supplying Celanese with carbon dioxide captured from its state-of-the-art carbon monoxide and hydrogen production facility at Clear Lake, Texas. Celanese will use the captured carbon dioxide and resulting clean hydrogen, along with other carbon dioxide sources, as feedstock to produce methanol with a lower carbon intensity at its Fairway Methanol LLC joint venture with Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
Linde already supplies carbon monoxide, oxygen and nitrogen to Celanese from its Clear Lake facility and US Gulf Coast pipeline system. The additional supply is an expansion of the existing long-term agreement.
"Celanese is meeting the challenge to produce products with a lower carbon footprint by using carbon dioxide that would otherwise be emitted,” said Mark Murray, Senior Vice President of Acetyls at Celanese. "We are pleased to work with Linde in our journey to reduce the carbon intensity of methanol, a raw material widely used in many everyday products.”
“Linde is actively supporting its customers’ decarbonization goals," said Amer Akhras, Vice President South Region at Linde. "We are proud to expand our existing relationship with Celanese by investing in our Clear Lake facility to enable the production of essential chemicals with a lower carbon intensity.”
