Linde to work for green hydrogen project in Germany

April 09/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Linde Engineering to design and build an integrated hydrogen fueling station and electrolysis plant for German waste-to-energy recycling company AGR Abfallentsorgungs-Gesellschaft Ruhrgebiet, said the company.

The project comprising hydrogen production and high-performance fueling technology is receiving funding of up to EUR6.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in the framework of the National Innovation Program Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP). The funding guidelines are being coordinated by NOW GmbH and implemented by the company Project Management Julich (PtJ).

The project encompasses proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, compressors, storage tanks and high-performance fueling stations. The contract also includes provisions for Linde Engineering to provide maintenance and service. The electrolyzers will have an annual capacity of around 440,000 kg of hydrogen. The electricity will come from AGRs waste-to-energy thermal power plant, where municipal and commercial waste with a biogenic content of around 50 percent serves as the primary fuel source. The electricity required for the production of green hydrogen will come from AGRs energy efficiency measures, while securing the feed of green electricity and environmentally friendly heat into the public grids.

As MRC informed earlier, Ruskhimalliance, a parity joint venture between Gazprom and Rusgazvydobuvannya, on March 26 signed an agreement of intent with the Linde Engineering holding, part of the German The Linde Group, on the project for the implementation of a gas processing plant (GPP) in Ust-Luga. Ruskhimalliance intends to approximately halve the cost of the contract for the creation of a gas processing plant in Ust-Luga. The contract price will be EUR5 billion against EUR10 billion with the previous contractor, one of the interlocutors said.

According to the ScanPlast by MRC, the estimated consumption of PE in Russia amounted to 241,030 tonnes  in January 2021 against 217,890 tonnes in the same period a year earlier. Only high-density polyethylene (LDPE) and low-density polyethylene (HDPE) supplies have grown.

Linde is a leading global industrial gases and engineering company with 2020 sales of USD27 billion (EUR24 billion). We live our mission of making our world more productive every day by providing high-quality solutions, technologies and services which are making our customers more successful and helping to sustain and protect our planet.
