Liquid hydrogen seen as ‘holy grail’ for hydrogen uptake in mobility sector: Linde COO

Industrial gas and chemicals company Linde sees liquid hydrogen as the “holy grail” for unlocking hydrogen use in the mobility sector, COO Sanjiv Lamba said Nov. 16.

A world leader in hydrogen liquefaction technology, Linde operates a $2 billion hydrogen business with aims to quadruple its hydrogen divisions within the next 15 years, Lamba said during a webinar hosted by Goldman Sachs. And liquid hydrogen will be a big part of that direction, he said.

There is development ongoing looking at moving that to liquid, and obviously it comes with some complexity.”
