Linde started up a new carbon dioxide (CO2) plant in Freeport, Texas, that will recycle the crude CO2 supplied from an MEGlobal process. The crude CO2 will be purified and liquefied into commercial grades to serve customers in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, where it is used to carbonate drinks, as well as to freeze, chill, preserve and package food.
In addition, Linde started up an air separation unit (ASU) in Freeport, Texas, as part of a long-term agreement to supply oxygen and nitrogen to MEGlobal's ethylene glycol (EG) plant in Oyster Creek, Texas. EG is used as a raw material in a variety of products, such as polyester fibers, polyethylene terephthalate resins for liquid and food containers and other industrial applications
