About

About India’s first pure green hydrogen plant:

  • Oil India Limited (OIL), India’s second largest National Exploration & Production Company, has taken the first significant step towards Green Hydrogen Economy in India with the commissioning of India’s First 99.999% pure Green Hydrogen pilot plant with an installed capacity of 10 kg per day at its Jorhat Pump Station in Assam.
  • The plant was commissioned in a record time of 3 months.
  • The plant produces Green Hydrogen from the electricity generated by the existing 500kW Solar plant using a 100 kW Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) Electrolyser array. The use of AEM technology is being used for the first time in India.
  • This plant is expected to increase its production of green hydrogen from 10 kg per day to 30 kg per day in future.

Green Hydrogen

  • 'Green hydrogen' is pure hydrogen produced using renewable energy sources such as wind or solar power. 
  • There are no natural hydrogen deposits on earth; it has to be extracted from other compounds by a chemical process. 
  • If renewable energy (e.g. from Solar panels) is used to generate electricity for the electrolysis of water then the green hydrogen can be generated without any harmful emissions.
