News from IIR members: Linde Gases

Linde Gases recently signed an agreement with Stena Aluminium in Sweden for the installation of its low-temperature oxyfuel technology. Stena is a major aluminium producer and will boost productivity thanks to the Oxyfuel solution: the technology will more efficiently supply the energy needed for dissolution of added alloys and superheat the melt. Emissions of greenhouse gases, CO2 and NOX will also be reduced. The technology typically boosts capacity by up to 30-50%, delivering uniform furnace temperatures to avoid hot spots, and reducing fuel consumption and emissions by up to 50%.
