What We Do

Linde has two principal business areas: gas and engineering.

Linde Gas produces and supplies industrial gases, medical gases, specialty gases, refrigerants, and other chemicals. Depending on the gas and the quantity required, these may be supplied in portable high-pressure cylinders, in liquefied form by road tanker, from on-site gas generators or in the gaseous form via pipeline to large customers.

Linde Engineering designs and builds large-scale chemical plants for the production of industrial gases including oxygen, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide, as well as large plants associated with the processing of natural gas, LNG, LPG and the manufacture of olefins.
