How Linde is scaling up to serve the growing hydrogen mobility market in North America
Linde is currently in the process of retrofitting its Ontario, California plant to produce green hydrogen to fuel the US state’s mobility market. Targeting the second quarter of 2021 for full commercialisation, the facility will manufacture green hydrogen using renewable methane, in addition to producing conventional hydrogen.
With this investment, the US-German industrial gas giant will be able to initially produce 2.6 metric tons of green hydrogen per day – enough to fuel up to 1,600 vehicles a day – helping to avoid up to 50,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. As demand for green hydrogen grows, Linde plans to expand its capacity accordingly, and revealed to H2 View that the US mobility market is a big focus for the company.
“Mobility will be a big driver of hydrogen demand, especially when it comes to heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks, buses and trains, as they need to significantly reduce emissions to meet 2040 climate change targets,” said Andrew Sarantapoulas, Vice-President of Marketing and Product Management at Linde Gases US.
