Linde to construct $17.3m electrolyser plant in New York


In a move that will help New York achieve its climate goals, Linde will construct a proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser plant in Niagara Falls that will produce green hydrogen on a commercial scale – and it is expected to be operational in 2023.
