The Linde Group launched its combustion center in Suzhou in an effort to develop new combustion and heat-treatment applications and solutions in China and the Asia Pacific region. The Linde Combustion Centre will drive research-and-development initiatives in partnership with metal and glass industries and research institutes in projects to develop green combustion technologies and improve heat-treatment processes – particularly for carburizing and sintering – geared toward future and sustainable applications.

 The center owns cutting-edge technology to facilitate R&D work in metallurgy, steel, iron, nonferrous, mining and heat-treatment industries. It also has a demonstration facility for customer engagements. Linde, which has a strong position in the European heat-treatment industry as an application technology provider, now has three existing R&D centers – one each in the U.S., Europe and China.
