Ardagh Glass Limmared and Plug Power Join Forces to Pioneer Industrial-Scale Hydrogen in Glass Manufacturing
Ardagh Glass Limmared, a leading glass packaging producer in the Nordics, has partnered with Plug Power, a global green hydrogen company, to embark on an ambitious electrolyser project. This groundbreaking collaboration aims to introduce industrial-scale green hydrogen into the glass manufacturing process, marking a significant milestone in sustainable innovation.
Driving Change in Glass Manufacturing
Located in the picturesque landscape east of Gothenburg, Sweden, Ardagh Glass Limmared is renowned for its commitment to environmental responsibility. As a key supplier to Sweden’s esteemed spirits company, Absolut, Ardagh Glass Limmared plays a pivotal role in the region’s packaging industry. Now, with the implementation of the electrolyser project, the company is set to revolutionize glass manufacturing practices.
Harnessing the Power of Green Hydrogen
By the end of the year, Ardagh Glass Limmared plans to produce an impressive 2.1 metric tons per day (tpd) of green hydrogen. This environmentally friendly alternative will replace a portion of the natural gas currently utilized in the manufacturing process, resulting in a substantial reduction in carbon emissions. Leveraging Plug Power’s cutting-edge electrolyser technology, Ardagh Glass Limmared will harness hydroelectric power to generate hydrogen in an efficient and sustainable manner.
