Linde Gaz, owned by the German Linde Group, has finalized investments for its new carbon dioxide (CO2) production facility in Denizli in southwestern Turkey, and has brought the facility into service connected to the highly anticipated ‘Organized Greenhousing Zone’ in the region.

According to gasworld Business Intelligence, the $15m investment sources raw CO2 from the nearby Zorlu Energy geothermal electricity plant, then purifies and liquefies the product. The majority of the plant’s capacity will be delivered to food and beverage clients in the region.

Linde Gaz A.Ş.
