Ardagh Glass Limmared Will Produce Green Hydrogen
Ardagh Glass Limmared, a Gothenburg, Sweden-based glass packaging producer and a supplier to a Swedish popular spirits company, will produce 2.1 metric tons per day (TPD) of green hydrogen by the end of the year.
The green hydrogen will replace a portion of the natural gas used today. Ardagh will use hydroelectric power to generate hydrogen from Plug Power’s electrolyzer, according to an announcement.
Hydro Havrand and the APEX Group will also use Plug Power’s electrolyzer to adopt industrial-scale green hydrogen.
Hydro Havrand, a new unit of aluminum giant Norsk Hydro ASA, will employ a 5MW Plug electrolyzer module by June 2024 to build a close-loop circular economy for its aluminum recycling plant in Hoyanger, Norway. The electrolyzer will displace natural gas used in the plant’s burner with 2.1 metric TPD of green hydrogen.
In Bremen, Germany, Plug and its partner APEX Group, an integrator, will demonstrate for the first time the feasibility of producing green steel through the decarbonization of ArcelorMittal’s local blast furnaces.
Plug will produce two 5MW electrolyzer modules with a capacity to produce 4.2 metric TPD of green hydrogen to SWB, the city’s public utility company, by the end of 2023.
