Linde will build, own, and operate the world's largest PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolyzer plant at the Leuna Chemical Complex in Germany. The new 24-megawatt electrolyzer will produce green hydrogen. The plant is due to start production in the second half of 2022 and will be built by ITM Linde Electrolysis GmbH, a joint venture between Linde and ITM Power, using high-efficiency PEM technology.

Most of the world's hydrogen production is generated by Steam Methane Reforming (SMR), a CO2-intensive process. If a process that uses renewable electricity is used, "green" or CO2-neutral hydrogen is produced.

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 and operates the world's first high-purity hydrogen storage cavern, coupled with a pipeline network of approximately 1,000 km to supply its customers.
