Hydrogen (H2) has been deployed as an industrial gas for over one hundred years and large volumes are used across the widest range of applications every day.
Hydrogen is set to play a defining role in the third, 'green' industrial revolution. It is the most commonly occurring element in nature and – unlike fossil fuels such as crude oil or natural gas – will never run out.
Like electricity, hydrogen is an energy carrier – it is not a primary energy source but is used to store, transport and provide energy and has the best thermal conductivity of all gases. Stored hydrogen, for example, can be used directly as a fuel or to generate electricity.
Proven, long-standing expertise.
Linde is the only company to cover every step in the hydrogen value chain from production and processing through distribution and storage to everyday industrial and consumer applications. Building on decades of research and countless real-world projects, Linde’s hydrogen capabilities demonstrate its innovative power and proven expertise in delivering workable, economically viable hydrogen technologies suited to mass deployment.
When used in a fuel cell, hydrogen (H2) produces only water vapor instead of harmful emissions. It is therefore an ideal building block in making our energy system more flexible and supports the merging of today’s power and gas markets. As a storage medium for renewable power, hydrogen is an ideal energy carrier within a sustainable energy cycle.
Hydrogen is set to play a key role in tackling climate change. Linde has been harnessing the power of hydrogen for over 100 years and has been intensely engaged in the use of hydrogen as an emission-free fuel for over 30 years. Moreover, we have systematically strengthened our position as the technology leader for other hydrogen applications, such as industry decarbonization and power buffering.
Our innovative technologies, e.g. for the efficient compression and safe fueling of hydrogen, coupled with decades of experience and unrivaled infrastructure, make us an ideal partner to support the transition to clean energy.
