Linde subsidiary White Martins will build and operate a second electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen for Brazilian flat glass manufacturer Cebrace.

The new plant will be powered by renewable energy from local solar and wind power projects to produce independently certified green hydrogen.

The five-megawatt pressurized alkaline electrolyzer plant will be located next to the company’s existing air separation facility in Jacareí, São Paulo.

Once operational, White Martins' new plant will supply green hydrogen to glass manufacturer Cebrace to reduce emissions from its glass melting furnaces in Jacareí.

It will also meet demand for competitive green hydrogen from existing and new customers across industrial sectors including metals, food and chemicals, among others. The new plant is expected to start up in 2025.

Gilney Bastos, President South Latin America, Linde, said: “We look forward to helping Cebrace achieve its decarbonization goals while also supporting merchant customers’ transition to lower carbon solutions.”
