Linde delivers green hydrogen plant and ASU equipment to Infineon Technologies

Linde today announced that it has recently delivered a green hydrogen plant and equipment for a fourth air separation plant to Germany's largest semiconductor manufacturer, Infineon Technologies, at its site in Villach, Austria. The green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis using renewable energy.

The delivery of the hydrogen plant enables the production of 800 kilograms of green hydrogen per day for on-site semiconductor chip production at Infineon’s site. This eliminates the need of delivery by truck.

The 2 MW electrolyzer plant – built, owned and to be operated by Linde – will produce green hydrogen using PEM technology from ITM Power, which Linde will then purify to meet the rigorous specifications needed in Infineon’s manufacturing process. The use of this high-purity green hydrogen is part of Infineon’s plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at its Villach site.
