BPCL and BARC unite to scale up tech for Green Hydrogen production

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL), a Maharatna and Fortune Global 500 company, has teamed up with Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) to scale up Alkaline Electrolyser technology for the production of Green Hydrogen. Electrolyser Plants are currently imported. This is a first of its kind initiative aimed at assisting the country in meeting its renewable energy targets and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

To make petrol, diesel, and other chemicals, refineries use large amounts of hydrogen for desulfurisation. Hydrogen is currently produced at the refinery. Natural gas is steam reformed, but this produces a lot of carbon dioxide. In consequence, refiners are erecting large-scale electrolysers to produce Green Hydrogen from water and thus decarbonise the production of hydrogen.

Bharat Petroleum intends to add solar, wind, and biofuels to its renewable energy portfolio, reiterating its commitment to sustainability and carbon reduction. In addition, the company intends to meet the power needs of new projects in its refineries, primarily from renewable sources.

With a combined refining capacity of around 35.3 mmtpa, BPCL operates refineries in Mumbai, Kochi, and Bina, Madhya Pradesh, through its subsidiary Bharat Oman Refineries Limited. It has a network of installations, depots, energy stations, aviation service stations, and LPG distributors as part of its marketing infrastructure.

Atomic energy plays a critical role in India's overall power sector's carbon intensity reduction. Thermal power generation from all sources accounts for 234,048 MW, or 60% of total installed power, while renewables, hydropower, and nuclear power account for 95,875 MW, 51,220 MW, and 6,780 MW up to 2%, respectively.
