Guest Lecture: Dr. Thorben Finken of the Linde Group

December 7th, 2012

Hydrogen Mobility was the main focus of Dr. Thorben Finken’s presentation at Globe College on 6th December. Despite the icy wind and snow blizzard, the attendees were rewarded with a fascinating insight into the opportunities and challenges for the future of hydrogen mobility in Germany, an ambitious goal of the Linde Group and several OEMs.

Following a welcome address by Dr. Susan Walsh, Dean of Globe College, Dr. Finken gave an informative account of the business groups within Linde. As a global leader in the international industrial gases market, the importance and uses of such gases varied from the energy sector, steel production, chemical processing, environmental protection, and welding, as well as in food processing, glass production and electronics. The Engineering division is a leader in the construction of turnkey industrial plants in a wide variety of fields such as the petrochemical and chemical industries, in refineries, fertiliser plants and in the pharmaceutical industry. Linde also constructs plants to recover air gases, produce hydrogen and synthesis gases and treat natural gas such as a the LNG terminal in Hamburg port. Linde is a competent partner for medical gases and therapeutic concepts which contribute to maintain the highest standard of healthcare.
