The Big Exchange - english version
While the world continues to discuss climate change and its consequences, Linde has been developing concepts to make significant reductions in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in existing ethylene plants. One of Linde's innovative solutions - the replacement of the furnace section of a cracker during a plant turnaround - is shown in this documentary film.
Linde Engineering. Tobolsk. One of the world´s largest ethylene crackers.
Since 2012, Linde has been working on one of the world’s largest olefin processing plants in Tobolsk, designed to generate high-quality feedstock for polymer production. In total, around 100,000 tonnes of concrete and 60,000 tonnes of steel are going into Tobolsk2’ s construction, as well as almost 5,000 kilometres of cable. When it goes on stream, the plant will produce ethylene at a rate of around 1.5 million tonnes per annum (tpa), as well as 500,000 tpa of propylene and 100,000 tpa of butadiene. Linde is channelling the technology know-how that it has gained as one of the world’s leading plant engineers into this project, further cementing the company’s position at the forefront of the market.
