Linde triples production capacity for hydrogen refueling stations

November 23/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Linde and the Dalian Bingshan Group have signed an agreement to establish a joint venture company that will manufacture hydrogen refueling stations in Dalian, China (Liaoning province) to supply fuel cell-powered vehicles, starting in 2021, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

As a result, Linde will triple its production capacity for hydrogen refueling stations in the next few years. The new production facility in Dalian has been designed to meet the requirements of the rapidly growing APAC markets.

The Asian market has long been one of the pioneers in hydrogen-based mobility solutions. Due to our many years of successful cooperation with our joint venture partner, this is the ideal location for us to expand capacity," said Dr. Alexander Unterschuetz, senior vice president Components, Linde Engineering.

In 2014, Linde started the world's first small series production for hydrogen refueling stations in Vienna. The IC90 and Twin IC90 systems to be manufactured in Dalian are based on the Ionic Compressor technology developed by Linde in Vienna. This technology has proved to be energy-efficient and space-saving. A sufficient infrastructure of hydrogen refueling stations is considered one of the key prerequisites for the market success of emission-free fuel cell vehicles.

Linde is a global leader in the production, processing, storage and distribution of hydrogen. It has the largest liquid hydrogen capacity and distribution system in the world. The company also operates the world's first high-purity hydrogen storage cavern coupled with an unrivalled pipeline network to reliably supply its customers. Linde is at the forefront in the transition to clean hydrogen and has installed over 190 hydrogen fueling stations and 80 hydrogen electrolysis plants worldwide. The company offers the latest electrolysis technology through its newly formed joint venture ITM Linde Electrolysis.

Linde and the Dalian Bingshan Group have been running a successful joint venture in Dalian since 2005. As Linde Engineering's most important production facility in China, the company produces and sells large air separation plants and other plant components.

As MRC informed earlier, Linde has entered into a long-term agreement with Samsung Electronics to supply ultra-high purity industrial gases for the South Korean tech giants latest semiconductor facilities in Pyeongtaek, South Korea.  Currently the main supplier of industrial gases to Samsungs existing facilities in Pyeongtaek, Linde said this second agreement will see the company build, own and operate air separation plants in Samsungs latest world-class manufacturing complex.

As MRC informed earlier, Linde GmbH and Shell have announced an exclusive collaboration agreement on ethane-oxidative dehydrogenation (E-ODH) technology for ethylene production. The catalytic process is an alternative route to ethane steam cracking, offering the potential of economic advantages, acetic acid co-production and significantly lower overall carbon footprint through electrification of power input.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing PE and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,594,510 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 1% year on year. Only high denstiy polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 880,130 tonnes in the nine months of 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports, exluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply increased exclusively of PP random copolymer.
