Linde commences hydrogen supply for WACKER polysilicon plant


Linde North America Inc., has successfully commenced supplying ultra-high purity hydrogen (H2) and steam to WACKER for its polysilicon plant located in Chareston, Tennessee.

WACKER’s state-of-the-art multi-product facility, which recently began operating in Tennessee, can produce 20,000 tonnes per annum of polysilicon, a basic ingredient in the manufacture of solar panels and semiconductors. Linde’s ultra-high purity H2 and steam are essential to WACKER’s production of polysilicon for these consumer markets.

Jens Luehring, President of Linde Americas, said, “Linde remains committed to meeting our customers’ needs with a reliable supply of products and solutions, and this represents one more example of our commitment to customers.” Luehring continued, “Linde has a long relationship with WACKER, as we have supplied gas products to multiple WACKER operations around the world. We are very proud to extend our relationship as the supplier of ultra-high purity H2 and steam for WACKER’s new plant in the US.”
