Linde set out to build world's largest PEM electrolyzer for green hydrogen

Dresden, January 15 - Neftegaz.RU. German-American-Anglo chemical company Linde announced it will build, own and operate the world's largest PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolyzer plant at the Leuna Chemical Complex in Germany.

The new 24-megawatt electrolyzer will produce green hydrogen to supply Linde's industrial customers through the company's existing pipeline network.
In addition, Linde will distribute liquefied green hydrogen to refueling stations and other industrial customers in the region.

The total green hydrogen being produced can fuel approximately 600 fuel cell buses, driving 40 million km and saving up to 40,000 tons of carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions per year.

The electrolyzer will be built by ITM Linde Electrolysis, a joint venture between Linde and ITM Power, using high-efficiency PEM technology.
According to Linde, this would be the world’s largest such facility.
It is expected to begin production in the second half of 2022.

Jens Waldeck, President Region Europe West, Linde, said:
  • Clean hydrogen is a cornerstone of the German and EU strategies to address the challenge of climate change
  • It is part of the solution to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions across many industries, including chemicals and refining
  • This project shows that electrolyzer capacity continues to scale up and it is a stepping stone towards even larger plants
The industrial gases supplier Linde has so far installed nearly 200 hydrogen fuelling stations and 80 hydrogen electrolysis plants around the world.
The company also runs the world's 1st high-purity hydrogen storage cavern.
