One of the four POx plants operated by Linde is the world's largest natural gas-fed plant (200,000 Nm³/h H2+CO).
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas used as a raw material for the chemical industry.
Pure CO is primarily used for the production of:
- acetic acid
- formic acid
CO is generated by reforming hydrocarbon feedstocks such as natural gas, oils or oil derivatives, coal or petroleum coke. With 75 CO generating plants world-wide, Linde Engineering can provide CO with purities of up to 99.99 vol.-% and capacities from 100 Nm³/h to over 30,000 Nm³/h.
