Linde LLC’s air separation plant in Birmingham, Ala., has been certified under the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® program. The Birmingham plant produces and delivers oxygen, nitrogen, and argon to steel producers and metal fabricators in Alabama and six surrounding states.
Responsible Care is a management system aimed at helping companies improve performance in areas such as safety, health, environment, and security. Certification is mandatory for all members of ACC, an association of producers, manufacturers, and suppliers of chemical products. Member companies must undergo headquarter and facility audits by an independent, accredited auditor to verify that they have a system in place that manages and measures performance.
