Linde Group to build a new hydrogen plant in China

May 23/2012

(hydracarbonprocessing) -- The Linde Group 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 EUR42 million in the first phase of this new project.

The hydrogen plant is expected onstream by the end of 2013, supplying several companies in the Jilin chemical complex with high-purity hydrogen. This park is home to 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 Nm3h of hydrogen. 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.

Jishen, Evonik Industries and Huntsman are investing around EUR390 million in total to construct a chemical hub in Jilin that will produce high-pressure propylene oxide (HPPO). Evonik is building a 230-kiloton/yr hydrogen peroxide plant to supply Jishen's 300-kiloton/yr HPPO plant. Jishen will then supply the HPPO to Huntsman for its polyol plant.
