On completion, the new facility is expected to produce 30 tonnes of high purity liquid hydrogen per day. The plant is being established owing to the increase in demand from multiple sectors.

Connecticut/USA – Praxair, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linde, the leading global producer of liquid hydrogen, has recently announced that it has commenced construction of its fifth liquid hydrogen plant in the U.S., adding geographic and source diversification. The new investment in La Porte, Texas, is in response to growing demand from customers in sectors such as material handling, aerospace, manufacturing, metals, energy and electronics.

Praxair’s new plant, scheduled to start up in 2021, will produce over 30 tonnes per day of high purity liquid hydrogen. It will be integrated with the recently constructed air separation plant in La Porte, resulting in energy and capital cost savings. The new plant will complement Praxair’s existing liquid hydrogen plants in California, Alabama, Indiana and New York and will enhance supply reliability.
