Linde brings liquid hydrogen plant onstream in Texas

Linde has today (July 15) started up a 30 tonnes per day liquid hydrogen plant in La Porte, Texas, marking the company’s fifth liquid hydrogen plant in the US.

Brought onstream to meet growing market demands, the liquefier will take hydrogen from Linde’s approximately 600km US Gulf Coast pipeline.

The hydrogen will then be purified and liquefied before it is supplied to end markets such as material handling, mobility, aerospace, manufacturing, metals, energy and electronics.

Commenting on the development Jeff Barnhard, Vice-President South Region, Linde, said, “The new hydrogen plant started up on time and on budget, which is a testament to the dedication of the team executing this project over the last two years.

“This plant will not only boost the reliability of our existing network but will also make the supply chain more efficient and increase our ability to serve the rising demand from existing and new customers, for both conventional and clean hydrogen.”
