Shell otvara prvu opskrbnu stanicu vodikom u Njemačkoj prema Linde tehnologiji

Shell opens hydrogen service station with Linde technology in Germany

Berlin, 20 June 2011 – Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH opened their first demonstration hydrogen station in Germany today. It is located on the premises of Shell’s Sachsendamm service station in Berlin. The installation is equipped with innovative refuelling technology from Linde. The hydrogen to be dispensed there comes from a Linde pilot plant in Leuna which uses crude glycerol as feedstock.

Olaf Reckenhofer, responsible for Linde’s gases business in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, said: "The highly efficient cryo-pump system developed by Linde makes this installation the top performing hydrogen refuelling station in the world. Together with the certified green hydrogen supplied by us, this is a trailblazing fuelling concept that will bring us forward on the road to sustainable transportation."

The demonstration station is part of Shell’s research and development programme for hydrogen technology and was established within the scope of the "Clean Energy Partnership" (CEP). The objective is to evaluate the technology and learn valuable lessons about costs, consumer behaviour, how to store hydrogen safely and dispense it efficiently to different vehicles – such as passenger cars and buses.

“We’re proud to play an active role in the research and development of hydrogen technologies in the transport sector. Hydrogen-fuelled transportation can make a long-term contribution towards lowering road transport emissions,” said Peter Blauwhoff, Country Chair of Deutsche Shell Holding when the demonstration station was officially opened in Berlin.

The demonstration station in Berlin has the capacity to fill about 250 hydrogen-fuelled vehicles per day. However, the service station will predominantly be used for demonstration and research purposes, and for the time being an average of about 20 vehicles are to be filled there per day.

"Our aim is to improve the vehicles in terms of their efficiency, performance and reliability, to boost the production and distribution of hydrogen and to continually expand the network of service stations. This demonstration station is a further milestone en route to the hydrogen society," said Patrick Schnell, Chair of the CEP.

Daimler i Linde nastavljaju sa razvojem infrastrukture za vozila pokretana gorivim ćelijama
  • Joint project agreed to build 20 hydrogen (H2) filling stations in Germany
  • Significant contribution for Germany as the lead market for electromobility
  • Major impetus for existing H2 infrastructure initiatives

 

Stuttgart/Munich, 1 June 2011 – Car manufacturer Daimler and technology company The Linde Group are pressing ahead with the development of an infrastructure for hydrogen-powered fuel-cell vehicles. Over the coming three years, the two companies plan to construct an additional 20 hydrogen filling stations in Germany, thereby ensuring a supply of hydrogen produced purely from renewable resources for the steadily increasing number of fuel-cell vehicles on the roads. The initiative links in with the existing H2 Mobility and Clean Energy Partnership infrastructure projects, which are being subsidised by the National Innovation Programme for hydrogen and fuel-cell technology (NIP). This places Germany at the international forefront of hydrogen infrastructure development.

The initiative that Linde and Daimler are embarking upon involves investment running into the tens of millions, and is set to more than triple the number of public hydrogen refuelling points in Germany. The new stations will be located in the current hydrogen centres of Stuttgart, Berlin and Hamburg as well as along two new continuous north-south and east-west axes. The aim is to use existing sites belonging to different petroleum companies that are strategically located in the traffic network. This will make it possible to drive anywhere in Germany with a fuel-cell-powered vehicle for the first time. One of the focal points for the infrastructure's extension will be in Baden-Württemberg, where, 125 years after the invention of the motor car, the stage is being set for its reinvention.

"Together with the fuel cell, hydrogen is set to be of fundamental importance to the expansion of electromobility," explained Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Reitzle, Chief Executive Officer of Linde AG. "We are delighted to be able to play such an instrumental role in shaping this development together with Daimler. We see ourselves as providing an impetus for existing initiatives, such as H2 Mobility and the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), and wish to support the commercialisation of hydrogen vehicles as best we can. By systematically developing hydrogen technology, Germany can assume a pioneering role in this field and establish itself as the industry leader as we move towards emission-free mobility."

"The fuel cell represents a decisive step forward for electromobility, as it enables zero-emission driving with high ranges and short refuelling times – and not just for passenger cars, but for commercial vehicles, too. In partnership with Linde, we are now taking the next step by getting things going on the infrastructure side. 20 new hydrogen filling stations will give the market a major stimulus," remarked Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars at the finish of the Mercedes-Benz F-CELL World Drive in Stuttgart. Having started off from Stuttgart at the end of January, the first circumnavigation of the globe in fuel-cell vehicles took in four continents and 14 countries. Each of the vehicles involved covered over 30,000 kilometres. Linde accompanied the F-CELL World Drive as the exclusive hydrogen partner, providing the zero-emission vehicles with a mobile supply of hydrogen for the duration of the tour.

Construction and commissioning of the new filling stations will already start in 2012. Other partners from the petroleum, power supply or automotive industries, for instance, are welcome to become involved in the joint initiative that has been set up by Daimler and Linde.

 

Background: the infrastructure of hydrogen filling stations in Germany

The successful introduction of fuel-cell vehicles depends on the development of a public hydrogen supply infrastructure. The first centres have already sprung up in large metropolitan areas, such as Berlin and Hamburg. There are nearly 30 hydrogen refuelling points in Germany at the current time, seven of which are integrated into a public filling station facility. This means that Germany clearly leads the way in Europe. To begin with, just five to ten filling stations are sufficient for conveniently servicing the requirements of a large city. Joining up these urban centres – for example Berlin with Hamburg, Stuttgart with Munich – by means of corridors along the arterial roads between them is a major step forward towards the establishment of a nationwide public H2 infrastructure.

Nova serija regulatora za zahtjevne aplikacije

Linde launches specialty gases regulators to meet increasingly tight food and pharmaceutical production standards

Munich, 4 May 2011 – Linde Gases, a division of The Linde Group, today announced the launch of its new range of U.S. GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) and EU (European Union) approved food and pharmaceutical grade specialty gases regulators. The demands of international legislation and country-specific regulations governing food and pharmaceutical drug processing and handling are becoming ever more rigorous. In response, specialty gases and the specialty equipment to effectively and safely administer those gases are becoming highly sophisticated.

Within the food and pharmaceutical production industries, the high standards set for gas purity, traceability requirements, the classification of gases as additives, in addition to increasingly rigorous directives on the use of plastics coming into contact with foodstuffs, all mean that each internal component of regulators used in certain food and pharmaceutical processing applications must be made from suitably inert materials. This is in order to avoid any contamination or chemical reaction with the gas or gas mixture. All components of Linde’s new food and pharmaceutical regulator range have been developed to deliver an unconditional level of gas purity.

“Linde is constantly innovating in order to provide food and pharmaceutical processing customers with highly effective products to enhance the quality and safety of their operations,” said Stephen Harrison, Head of Specialty Gases and Specialty Equipment, Linde. “The new range of HiQ® food and pharmaceutical regulators is a significant step forward in allowing us to offer comprehensive solutions to these customers – particularly those operating across international boundaries, allowing them to buy confidently knowing they have a guarantee of international consistency.”

Linde’s new food and pharmaceutical regulator range has been developed to meet the stringent requirements of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and are suitable for use with FDA GRAS-approved food additive gases and also with process gases used in pharmaceutical production. The regulators are also in line with EC (European Commission) regulation 1935/2004 for food gas packaging applications such as MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging), the food preservation technique to enhance shelf life.

 

About HiQ®

The HiQ® specialty gases product range from Linde supplies high purity gases, gas mixtures, precision engineered equipment and gas distribution systems, and services and support, to a wide range of industries employing specialty gases applications. It encompasses, but is not limited to, REDLINE® specialty gases equipment, BASELINE® specialty gases regulators, SPECTRA-SEAL® calibration gas mixtures, ECOCYL® portable specialty gases solutions, SPECTRA fine chemical, high purity and VOC calibration gases, plus VERISEQ® pharmaceutical grade gases.

Enabling technology for low-polluting electricity generation from coal: Successful pilot plant for CO2 capture to start long-term test

Joint press release of RWE Power, BASF and Linde

  • Successful cooperation for CO2 scrubbing of RWE Power, BASF and Linde to be continued.
  • Federal Economics and Technology Ministry to support project with some € 4 million.

 

Essen/Cologne, Ludwigshafen, Munich, 11 March 2011 – A separation efficiency of 90 percent, high purity and much lower energy input: These are the results of the research project for CO2 scrubbing, which RWE Power, BASF and Linde are conducting together. The partners have now decided to launch the next project phase. The pilot plant which was commissioned in the coal innovation centre in Niederaussem in 2009 will go through a long-term test from March until the end of 2013. Further process-engineering optimisations will be made to the plant as the research programme continues. Overall, € 6 million will be invested. The Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology is sponsoring the innovative project with some € 4 million. The ministry had already underscored its importance by funding the project with € 4.5 million when it was started in 2007.

"Efficient CO2 scrubbing is key to the success of carbon capture and storage technology, i.e. the removal and storage of carbon dioxide", emphasized Dr. Johannes Lambertz, Chief Executive Officer of RWE Power. "Together with our partners, we want to move CCS forward as an enabling technology for low-polluting electricity generation from coal. The politicians also have to do their bit: We need a CCS law implementing the requirements of the EU Directive without any special conditions to enable the technology to be used in Germany in the long run," Lambertz continued.

As we continue this highly successful cooperative venture, we are very confident that we will further optimise and develop this technology to have it ready for commercial use by 2013,” said Dr. Stefan Blank, Senior Vice President, who heads the Amines Europe business unit in BASF’s Intermediates division. "This cooperation is a venture of global relevance," said Dr. Aldo Belloni, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG. "It is about environmentally benign energy generation on a large scale. We are happy to be able to make a contribution to this extremely promising project with our expertise in many fields of CO2 management. We will continue to expand our activities in the growth market of energy and the environment in the future.“

Different scrubbing agents were initially tested in three test phases of six months each as part of the pilot operation of the CO2 scrubbing plant connected to the Niederaussem lignite-fired power plant to finally identify an optimum solvent developed by BASF. Result: Compared with processes commonly used today, the energy input can be reduced by about 20 percent when using the new chemical solvent for CO2 capture. The new scrubbing agent also comes with significantly increased stability and resistance to oxygen. This reduces the solvent consumption substantially. In the test phase starting now, the structure of the CO2 absorber, where the CO2 is removed from the flue gas, is to be optimised by Linde so that carbon dioxide can be removed even more effectively from the flue gas. If the test is successful, CO2 absorbers for large-scale power plants, for example, could be made smaller and hence less costly. The reconstruction is starting in the middle of the year and will be complete by the end of the year.

The results of the long-term test are intended to provide valuable findings for the large-scale use of the CCS technology which leading members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change believe has a key role to play in combating climate change. Using this technology, more than 90 percent of carbon dioxide could then be removed from the flue gases of power plants or other industrial processes from 2020. The CO2 could then be stored underground or be converted to other substances, e.g. fertilizers.
