Linde to substantially increase green hydrogen production in California

Linde has announced plans to increase its green hydrogen production capacity in Ontario, California, in response to growing demand from the mobility market. The company will build, own and operate the first of several planned 5 MW PEM electrolyzers to increase its hydrogen capacity.

Following this initial investment, the new electrolyzer, together with the existing plant, will produce enough green hydrogen to avoid up to 75,000 metric tons of CO2-equivalent emissions per year. Expected to start up in the second half of 2024, the new electrolyzer is one of several green hydrogen projects Linde is planning across the United States.

“We continue to see growing demand for green hydrogen as decarbonization in the mobility sector becomes a reality,” said Marcos Cuevas, Vice President West Region, Linde. “As the largest liquid hydrogen producer in the U.S., we are proud to leverage our technology and expertise to help California achieve its ambitious climate goals.”
