Linde to supply methane, hydrogen to Evonik's methionine complex in Singapore

SINGAPORE -- Linde Gas Singapore, a member of technology company The Linde Group, announced that it has signed a long-term contract to supply methane and hydrogen to Evonik Methionine SEA's second world-scale methionine complex in Singapore (Me6). Linde is already supplying a range of gases to Evonik's first methionine complex in Singapore (Me5) through its on-site gases facility, which began operations in 2014.

For this second contract, Linde will invest, build and operate a new gas production and supply facility that will be integrated with Evonik's production complex for DL-methionine. The investment includes a steam reformer with Linde-designed carbon dioxide recovery technology and Linde's methane pressure swing adsorption system.

The Me6 complex is expected to commence operations in 2019. Linde's Engineering Division will build the gases facility based on technologies designed to increase energy efficiency and environmental performance. Similar to the first plant, Linde's second integrated gas plant for Evonik will also use natural gas.

"I am delighted to further extend the relationship with Evonik following the award of the gas supply contract for Evonik's second world-scale methionine complex in Singapore,” said Sanjiv Lamba, Chief Operating Officer for Asia Pacific and Executive Board Member, Linde AG said. “We are proud of the partnership we share with Evonik across the globe and pleased by Evonik's recognition of Linde's superior technology offering and operational capabilities."

Linde uses various feedstock sources to produce industrial gases. In the longer term, Linde will continue to evaluate various feedstock sources as it expands its network of industrial gases supply to the energy and chemicals cluster on Jurong Island.
