B) Linde AG - Geschäftsbereich Linde Gas
- Distribution Center Leuna

 The Leuna facilities (located close to Leipzig, two hours to drive from Dresden) are one of the major sites of the Linde Group. It comprises several Air Separation Units, with the most modern put into operation in 2007, adding a capacity of about 64000 Nm³/h and including a rare gas separation (Kr/Xe, He/Ne). LN2, LOX and LAr for trailier distribution are produced. A pipeline net comprising several 100 km lines for O2, N2 and H2 is available, and a cylinder filling station is located at site.

Presently a remote operation control (ROC) system is installed to make Leuna a central control place for air separation plants allover Germany.

In 1994 a first and in 2003 a second steam reformer for large scale hydrogen production were put into operation. Since 2007 a hydrogen liquefaction facility with a capacity of 5 tons per day is operated there as well.

C) Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e. V.

 The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres pursuing new insights that will allow us to maintain and improve all of our lives. That's why the HZDR conducts research in the sectors Health, Energy und Matter. Scientific research equipment of national and international importance is operated in the HZDR and as such the HZDR is coordinating member and partner of numerous cooperations and projects. The Helmholtz Centre Dresden-Rossendorf has seven institutes and the Department of Research Technology.

Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory

The Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (Hochfeld-Magnetlabor Dresden, HLD) focuses on modern materials research in high magnetic fields. The HLD is engaged to open the access to magnetic fields up 100 T. In particular, electronic properties of metallic, semiconducting, superconducting, and magnetic materials are investigated.

D) Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden

 The Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden (Leibniz-Institut fuer Festkoerper- und Werkstoffforschung Dresden e.V., in short: IFW Dresden) is a non-university research institute and a member of the Leibniz Association. It is focused on modern materials science and combines explorative research in physics, chemistry and materials science with technological development of new materials and products. The staff comprises about 400 permanent employees and about 100 guest scientists in addition. One of the focus points in research work are superconducting materials and other low temperature research applications.

The tour will comprise the central helium plant and distribution system recently put into operation as well as a number of other cryogenic activities.
