Linde Expands Green Hydrogen Production in Brazil with New Electrolyzer Plant

Linde (Nasdaq: LIN) has announced through its subsidiary White Martins, plans to construct and operate a new five-megawatt pressurized alkaline electrolyzer in Jacareí, São Paulo, Brazil. This second electrolyzer facility, adjacent to its existing air separation unit, is slated to utilize renewable energy from local solar and wind projects, ensuring the production of independently certified green hydrogen.

Set to begin operations in 2025, the plant will support glass manufacturer Cebrace in reducing emissions from their glass melting furnaces in Jacareí. Additionally, it aims to cater to the growing demand for competitive green h2 among both existing and new customers across various sectors including metals, food, and chemicals. This initiative follows White Martins’ 2022 achievement of becoming the first in South America to produce industrial-scale certified green hydrogen in Pernambuco.

Gilney Bastos, President of South Latin America at Linde, emphasized the company’s dedication to advancing the energy transition in Brazil’s industrial sectors. Linde, a global leader in industrial gases and engineering, continues to play a pivotal role in the clean energy transition, aiding its clients in decarbonizing their operations with state-of-the-art carbon capture and hydrogen solutions. Leveraging its extensive experience and infrastructure, Linde is committed to developing clean energy projects across various applications and industries, reinforcing its mission to make the world more productive and sustainable.
