Linde Made Another Achievement in Renewable Lead Industry with Oxygen Combustion Technology
Linde REA applied technology team worked closely with sales team and signed a contract with Tianneng Group Zhejiang Tianneng Power Materials Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Zhejiang Tianneng), its fifth client in the renewable lead industry, and also its largest liquid oxygen (LOX) consumer in Mainland China. Successful signing with the industry standard Zhejiang Tianneng not only further consolidates the leadership of Linde Oxygen Combustion Technology in the renewable lead smelting industry, but also lays a solid foundation for further exploring the renewable metals industry.
In 9 November 2015, Joachim von Scheele (Linde Asia Pacific Metallurgy and Glass Technical Director), Martin Adendorff, Wei Zhongling and Liu Jixiong participated in the Renewable Metals International Forum 2015 held in Ningbo. Dr. Joachim von Scheele was invited by the organiser China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association Recycling Metal Branch (hereinafter referred to as CMRA) to give a speech entitled "Application of Oxygen Combustion Technology in Renewable Metals Industry" in the Forum, and he attracted wide attention from participants. Jiang Yuliang, President Assistant of Tianneng Group, was very interested in the applied performance of Linde Oxygen Combustion Technology in the renewable lead industry and made further communication and exchange with Liu Jixiong and Wei Zhongling. Mr. Jiang suggested that Linde should submit its offer to respond to the IFB for oxygen used in its Huzhou renewable lead smelting project and discuss the renovation of oxygen combustion technology.
After the Forum, Zou Zhong, Liu Jixiong from the applied technology team, and Deng Zhang from the Eastern Region sales team went to Huzhou immediately to visit its project lead. They detailed Linde’s applied technology in the lead smelting field and Linde’s leadership in oxygen supply and service, which were met initially by the client’s approval. Although it was unfortunate that the IFB for LOX tender had almost come to a close by then and that the client had selected "Hangyang Group" as its LOX supplier, Zou Zhong, Liu Jixiong, Li Yi and Deng Zhang from the project team visited the client several times without giving up and maintained close communication with them. Eventually, the client agreed to add Linde to its list of gas suppliers in the IFB. With persistent efforts, the project team held several rounds of business negotiations with the client and optimised the technical solutions for oxygen supply and service, and these efforts culminated with a formal contract on 15 April 2016.
1) Zhejiang Tianneng and Linde Gas signed an LOX and LN supply contract. Its consumption of LOX and LN would be hundreds of tons per day and tons per day respectively, which translates to an annual sales revenue of over ten million yuan;
2) Tianneng Group’s new renewable lead plant in Suqian, Jiangsu would consume dozens of tons of oxygen per day, and give priority to Linde for oxygen supply and combustion equipment.
Located in Changing of Huzhou, Zhejiang Tianneng specialises in lead-acid battery recycling. Tianneng Group is China's largest power battery and renewable lead recycling company listed in the HKEX. It has established 50,000 sales outlets in China and eight production bases in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui and Henan provinces.
