First Hydrogen Filling Station Opens in Hungary
The first hydrogen filling station in Hungary, operated by Linde Gáz Magyarország, has started operating in the south of the capital.

Hydrogen fuel cell buses are being put into service in the capital and a number of other big cities around the country in the framework of a pilot project of the Hungarian Mobility Development Agency (HUMDA), Zsófia Koncz, the energy state secretary, told a conference organised by the Hungarian Hydrogen Technology Association.


Hydrogen (H2) is produced by steam reforming, partial oxidation of hydrocarbons and by the conversion of carbon monoxide and purified by pressure swing adsorption or through the purification of refinery purge gases.

Linde plants supply H2 with a purity of up to 99.999 vol. % and a capacity of from 300 Nm³/h to 200,000 Nm³/h.

Hydrogen, in its capacity as a reactive gas, finds application in many hydrogenation processes, as feed material for fertilizer, fuel and peroxide production or as an energy carrier. 

Linde has decades of experience in the field of hydrogen plants and has built more than 200 plants for hydrogen manufacture with capacities of from 1,000 to over 100,000 Nm³/h. The great majority of these plants were implemented as turnkey facilities for a fixed price.

Linde AG's know-how and options in the area of hydrogen production comprise:

  • the entire process for the manufacture, recovery, purification, storage, liquefaction and transportation of H2.

  • the entire palette of petrochemical feedstock utilization from natural gas to heavy oil and all the way to coal for hydrogen production.

  • the entire capacity range of large-scale technological hydrogen production.

  • all services leading to the successful realization of hydrogen plants from project planning to financing all the way to completion and commissioning.

Beyond this, Linde as plant owner and operator is your partner for direct hydrogen supply.
