Oil India sets up green hydrogen plant in Assam

Oil India Limited is setting up a green hydrogen manufacturing plant at its Jorhat oilfield in Assam.

The company has already started the work of setting up a 100 kW green hydrogen plant at its pump station 3 in Jorhat to strengthen its green energy offerings.

It added that the plant would produce green hydrogen using an Anion exchange membrane (AEM) technology, and it is the first kind of project in India.

Director of Operations of Oil India Limited, Pankaj Kumar Goswami, said that the hydrogen generated will be combined with natural gas using the existing infrastructure of the plant.

Hydrogen is regarded as the cleanest form of energy during the current situation worldwide to cater for the rising energy demand. Green hydrogen is derived from the electrolysis of water using renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind. Hydrogen from biomass also falls under the category of green hydrogen.

PM Narendra Modi had proposed the National Hydrogen Mission in Budget 2021-22, initiating a hydrogen roadmap for India in August.

Under the Paris Agreement, India is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by around 33-35% from its 2005 level. It has made it necessary to provide alternative sources of cleaner energy.
