Leading industrial gases and engineering company, Linde Plc (Linde) has announced that will build a 5-megawatt pressurized alkaline electrolyzer plant through its subsidiary White Martins to produce green hydrogen in Brazil.

In an announcement made on Thursday (April 18), Linde announced it will build, own, and operate a second electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen for the southeast region of Brazil. Located next to the company's existing air separation facility in Jacareí, São Paulo, once operational White Martins' new plant will supply green hydrogen to glass manufacturer Cebrace to reduce emissions from their glass melting furnaces in Jacareí. Additionally, it will also meet the demand for competitive green hydrogen from existing and new customers across industrial sectors including metals, food, and chemicals, among others.

"Investing in green hydrogen to supply the industrial heart of São Paulo reaffirms our commitment to the energy transition in Brazil," said Gilney Bastos, President South Latin America, Linde.

"We look forward to helping Cebrace achieve its decarbonization goals while also supporting merchant customers' transition to lower carbon solutions."

Linde noted that White Martins was the first company to produce green hydrogen on an industrial scale with an international certification in South America, at its plant in Pernambuco in 2022.

The new plant is expected to start operations in 2025.
