Linde signs landmark renewable energy deals in Brazil

Linde is increasing its global active renewable energy by more than 60%, with the signing of two new major agreements in Brazil for the supply of renewable energy.

The commitment has been made via Linde’s White Martins subsidiary, which has signed deals to secure more than two million megawatt hours per year of renewable energy, replacing almost half of its existing power usage in Brazil.

Supply has already started from the Futura I Solar Complex, one of the largest photovoltaic parks in Latin America, and the Chi wind farm in Rio Grande do Sul.

Gilney Bastos, President of South Latin America at Linde, notes that the announcement is aligned with Linde’s commitment to actively increase its use of renewable energy.

He added, “Not only will these agreements reduce the carbon intensity of our own operations, but they also benefit our customers who will receive industrial gases with a lower carbon footprint.”

Linde is on track to meet its commitment to double the purchase of low carbon energy by 2028. The agreements also support the company’s science-based absolute greenhouse gas reduction target for 2035 and its 2050 climate neutrality ambition.

CO2 Summit 2023

Shortages and sourcing challenges are the headline stories everyone’s talking about in CO2 supply. But the whole carbon dioxide value chain is transforming – as this story itself demonstrates.

Applications are not only emerging and evolving but more demanding of the industry and its sourcing too. That calls for new thinking in CO2 storage and distribution, but it also raises questions over the tracking and management of supply chains. How we see CO2 is changing, shifting from waste disposal to a value chain in its own right. This will see the tonnage utilization of CO2 evolve beyond recognition.

Join gasworld this September as our North American CO2 Summit 2023 assesses the threats, challenges and opportunities ahead in carbon dioxide – how we find it, source it, purify it and deliver it. Learn about the changing face of CO2; the opportunities in direct air capture (DAC); supply chain strategies; carbon credits and legislation; and so much more.
