Set to be operational by 2025, the plant will be fitted with a proton exchange membrane electrolyser and use hydroelectric power to produce liquid green hydrogen.
The project is the first of many carried out by the industrial gas giant to support the soaring demand for green hydrogen in the US.
Todd Lawson, Vice President of the East Region at Linde, said, “Linde is the largest liquid hydrogen producer in the US and this new capacity will increase product availability at a time of growing demand from customers across several end markets, including aerospace, electronics and manufacturing.”
“We will continue investing in green hydrogen projects to help meet growing demand as well as contribute to a more sustainable energy economy.”
Less than three months ago (June 2022), Linde announced it is developing a $83m hydrogen plant in Alabama to meet growing dmand from aerospace, electronics, manufacturing and mobility markets. It is believed that plant will be operational by 2024.
gasworld Business Intelligence will soon give further comment on what the new development means for the US hydrogen market.
