Linde to build hydrogen plant for chemical complex in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

The technology group The Linde Group (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com) is set to build and operate a new hydrogen plant in the Jilin Chemical Industrial Park (JCIP) in Northeast China. The company will be investing around €42 million in the first phase of this new project. The hydrogen plant is expected to come on stream by the end of 2013, supplying several companies in the Jilin chemical complex with high-purity hydrogen. This park is home to the production facilities run by Evonik Industries and Jishen, a joint venture between the PetroChina Jilin Beifang Chemical Group and the Jilin Shenhua Group. The new hydrogen plant will use steam methane reforming (SMR) to produce 25,000 Nm3/h. It will be built by Linde’s Engineering Division and operated by its Gases Division. In addition, Linde will set up a subsidiary, Linde Gases Jilin, to focus on further expanding the gas supply infrastructure in and around the JCIP chemical complex. Chemical companies Jishen, Evonik Industries and Huntsman are investing around €390 million in total to construct a chemical hub in Jilin that will produce high-pressure propylene oxide (HPPO). Evonik is building a 230,000 ton/yr hydrogen peroxide plant to supply Jishen’s 300,000 ton/yr…
