Linde is in the unique position to offer the complete spectrum of technologies along the olefin/polyolefin chain, such as gas separation plants, ethylene plants, linear alpha olefin plants, and polyethylene and polypropylene plants based on third party licences.
Linde's ethylene process consists of a series of process steps, most of them developed and licensed by Linde.
However, some of these units, mainly catalytic process steps or downstream processes, incorporate technologies, developed and licensed by other companies.
Integration of these license processes within the ethylene process is beneficial as during engineering and execution phase, overall synergies can be utilized.
For the following processes licensed technologies are available to be integrated with Linde ethylene technology :
Butene 1 dimerization
Selective or full C3 and C4 hydrogenation
1 or 2 stage Gasoline Hydrogenation
However, these are just examples for typical processes where an integration of a licensed technology is beneficial.If required also license processes for other process steps can be integrated within the engineering workflow of Linde Engineering.
