CO2-neutral welding gas in tanks
The CO2-neutral cutting and welding gas is supplied by Linde Gas, which is part of Northern Europe's leading industrial gas company with a complete product range within industrial gases and special gases. With the climate-friendly product range, they have taken a pioneering step towards a greener welding process.
- Right now, the climate-friendly welding gases oxygen, nitrogen and argon will be delivered to us in tanks. These are the gases that Linde can currently supply that are CO2-neutral. Later we hope to add bottled climate-friendly cutting and welding gases to the supply. At present, this may not be possible, as they are all mixtures of several gases, but we expect it to be feasible in the near future, explains Winnie Fedders.
Although the CO2-neutral product line is more expensive than the traditional cutting and welding gas, Winnie Fedders has no doubt that the investment is an appropriate, right step in a sustainable direction.
- The Linde Green product range is approximately 7 percent more expensive for us. We at BSB have decided to accept this added expense because we believe that we as a company in the “black” industry carry a special responsibility for the climate and for reducing our CO2 emissions, she explains.
