Linde Expand the Supply of Gas to Phase II of Wanhua Chemical’s Yantai Operations

Linde Expand the Supply of Gas to Phase II of Wanhua Chemical’s Yantai Operations

The Linde Group, a world leading industrial gases and engineering company, announced that it has signed an agreement with Wanhua Chemical Group (“Wanhua Chemical”), the world’s largest producer of isocyanate (MDI), to expand the supply of gas to Phase II of Wanhua Chemical’s Yantai operations. Under the new agreement, Linde will invest EUR108m (835m RMB) to build two additional energy efficient steam-driven ASUs, complementing the two existing ASUs already in place, to meet Wanhua Chemical’s growing demand for industrial gases.

When the plants come on stream in 2019, they will be one of Linde’s most advanced gaseous and liquid production sites in Asia Pacific. The new plants will improve the reliability and stability of gas supply, while also increasing production flexibility and reducing production costs. This is made possible using Linde’s expertise to optimise the operating modes of multiple ASUs, capable of adjusting both the type and volume of gases to match the requirement of the Yantai site. 

Linde currently has supply agreements with Wanhua Chemical in Yantai and Ningbo, China, as well as in Kazincbarcika, Hungary. This new Yantai Wanhua deal is the fourth between the two companies, as Wanhua Chemical looks to integrate its global supply chain.

Wanhua Chemical continues to be the leading producer of MDI globally. Wanhua Chemical and Europe-based BorsodChem Zrt (BC), which is 100% owned by Wanhua Industrial, have total MDI capacity of 2.1 million tonnes, accounting for around 28% of total global capacity.
