Linde, LLC, has started up its 470 ton-per-day air separation plant in Lewisville, Arkansas. The plant, which produces liquid nitrogen and oxygen, was built, according to the Linde, “to meet rapidly growing customer demand in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma. The open house to celebrate the plant start-up is scheduled for May 14.
“This plant gives us the size and operating efficiencies we need to support our top customers, who are experiencing exceptional growth in their businesses and who are poised for even more growth in the future,” said Pat Murphy, president of Linde LLC.
The gases produced at the plant will be delivered by tanker truck to customers for freezing and chilling of a variety of meats, poultry, and a host of other products. The gas products will be to supply manufacturers of refined oil, petrochemicals, fine and specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and pulp and paper products. “Linde is bringing production closer to our customers so we can improve their supply security and at the same time reduce our own carbon footprint. Developing environmental solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions is part of Linde’s commitment to sustainability,” Murphy said.
