We are continuously developing new areas of application for our gas products and working on further improving our processes and plant technologies.
Focus on environmental protection and energy security
Linde develops new applications as part of business transactions, in close collaboration with its customers and taking into account their specific needs. We pay particular attention to the environmental impact of production processes. Furthermore, we concentrate on making technical processes and plants more energy efficient and on reducing emissions – in our own operations as well as those of our customers.
Linde set up the Clean Energy Group in 2011. The aim of this team, which operates across different business areas, is to develop innovative products and processes that help make renewable energies economically viable, reduce the use of natural resources and cut emissions that harm the environment.
Every year, Linde grants the Linde Group Patent & Innovation Award for the best innovations. With this award, Linde recognises the best patents registered during the year in each of the following categories: technological invention, commercial invention and business innovation. The award-winning patent applications are often directly linked to environmental and climate protection. Examples include innovations in the field of renewable energy, as well as new technologies to boost plant efficiency. The winners of this award become members of the Linde Innovators Club.
