04.19.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

April 19, 2024 [Linde]- Linde (Nasdaq: LIN) announced today its subsidiary White Martins will build, own and operate a second electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen for the southeast region of Brazil.

 

The five-megawatt pressurized alkaline electrolyzer plant will be located next to the company’s existing air separation facility in Jacarei, Sao Paulo. The new plant will be powered by renewable energy from local solar and wind power projects to produce independently certified green hydrogen.

Once operational, White Martins’ new plant will supply green hydrogen to glass manufacturer Cebrace to reduce emissions from their glass melting furnaces in Jacarei. It will also meet demand for competitive green hydrogen from existing and new customers across industrial sectors including metals, food and chemicals, among others. The new plant is expected to start up in 2025.

White Martins was the first company to produce green hydrogen on an industrial scale with an international certification in South America, at its plant in Pernambuco in 2022.

“Investing in green hydrogen to supply the industrial heart of Sao Paulo reaffirms our commitment to the energy transition in Brazil,” said Gilney Bastos, President South Latin America, Linde. “They look forward to helping Cebrace achieve its decarbonization goals while also supporting merchant customers’ transition to lower carbon solutions.”

As a leading industrial gases and engineering company, Linde is playing a key role in the clean energy transition. The company is actively helping its customers to decarbonize their operations with the latest carbon capture and hydrogen technologies through its world-class engineering organization, key alliances and ventures, and leveraging its extensive experience and infrastructure. Linde is developing clean energy projects across a range of applications and industries and growing its established business along the entire value chain.
