Linde Gas, a U.S. affiliate of the Linde Group, has been recognized by the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) for excellent environmental performance in 2006.
The CGA presented the company with its Environmental Excellence Award at the industry trade group's annual meeting in Florida in March.
The award recognizes industrial gases companies that have a significantly positive effect on the environment. Linde received the award for developing the ECOCYL® refillable cylinder. The cylinder increases safety and efficiency for customers who now use disposable calibration gases or lecture bottles and eliminates the need to dispose of the cylinders as hazardous waste.
