To expand in China, Linde has started two new air separation units (ASUs) to supply gaseous oxygen and nitrogen to Wanhua Chemical Group. The new plants join two existing ASUs, also built and operated by Linde, to support phase I and II of Wanhua Chemical’s integrated chemical site and production center in Yantai, China.

  • Wanhua Chemical Group, the world’s largest producer of isocyanate (MDI).
  • Linde’s advanced technology and operational expertise will enable all four ASUs to run at a greater scale and achieve synergies through improved energy efficiency and operational flexibility, resulting in higher reliability and lower venting of the plants.
