Linde expands agreement with Celanese to include CO2 and hydrogen

February 16, 2022 |

In the UK, Linde has expanded its existing agreement with Celanese Corporation and will begin supplying carbon dioxide and hydrogen to the Celanese manufacturing facility in Clear Lake, Texas.

Linde currently supplies oxygen, nitrogen and carbon monoxide to the Clear Lake facility. Under the terms of the expanded agreement, Linde will now also supply carbon dioxide captured in its nearby carbon monoxide production facility. Celanese will use the carbon dioxide, plus hydrogen, as an alternative feedstock to produce methanol with a significantly lower carbon intensity in their Fairway Methanol LLC joint venture. By using the carbon dioxide captured from Linde’s facility, the hydrogen supplied by Linde will also have a lower carbon intensity. Supply is expected to commence in the first half of 2023.
