Fully committed to less emissions. Linde and the passion for hydrogen. The Linde Group is a globally active industry gases and engineering company with a history of more than 135 years of success. We are also the leading specialist for the production, storage and application of hydrogen (H2). When used, this gas produces only water vapour instead of harmful emissions. It is therefore an ideal building block for the flexibilisation of our energy system and allows for the merging of today’s power and gas markets. As a storage medium for electric power, hydrogen is an ideal energy carrier...

H2 is everywhere. Linde’s world of hydrogen. Cutting-edge H2 technologies from Linde are applied along the entire hydrogen value chain, beginning with the production – where, for example, the conventional steam reforming process (SMR = steam methane reforming) is used alongside “green” processes such as H2 production from biogenic raw materials, which are currently being tested and advanced at Linde. At this stage, we can already supply our customers with 100 % green hydrogen. The goal of our development work is to create an emission-free hydrogen energy cycle. Thanks to long experience and...

Cutting-edge compression technology Cutting-edge compression technology. The core of the hydrogen fuelling station. The compressor unit is the key component of a hydrogen fuelling station ­ because the fuelling is carried out using compressed gaseous H2 at p ­ ressures from 35 to 70 MPa. Apart from the initial state – gaseous or l ­iquid – the technology used for fuelling also depends on a range of other factors, as for example the throughput and the type of vehicle to be fuelled. Linde offers the suitable compression systems for the most varied requirements. With the ionic compressor and...
