Acetylene Recovery Technology
Linde Engineering’s acetylene recovery process is a leading technology for efficient acetylene production.
Linde acetylene plant

As a leading global industrial gases and engineering company, Linde has a long history in the production and supply of acetylene gas, mainly for welding applications and as a chemical intermediate. Today we gladly share our know-how with our customers by providing licenses and designs for our state-of-the-art acetylene recovery technology worldwide.

In the 1960s, Linde was the first company to implement the continuous recovery of acetylene in a commercial steam cracker. Since then, Linde continually refined the design to meet the evolving demands of the market. Building on this track record and proven expertise, Linde now offers a range of benefits:

  • Extremely pure ethylene streams with < 0.1 ppm vol. acetylene
  • Highest safety standards with piping and equipment designed to intrinsically exclude the risk of acetylene decomposition
  • Impeccable operational feedback from all commercial plants including no fouling or corrosion problems
  • Ease of integration with any steam cracker technology and full flexibility for all plant operating cases
  • Maximum efficiency with the use dimethylformamide (DMF) as the absorption solvent
  • Simplified retrofits with utility specifications which are compatible with any steam cracker
  • Proprietary advanced process control included in the basic package
