The Concept of Green Hydrogen arose in an attempt to care and save the planet which we live in. Every country of the world is on a desperate attempt to limit carbon emission, which is killing our planet and day by day it is making our climatic conditions to a condition where it will become impossible to live in.
The year 2050 has been set as a goal by many countries of the world for a decarbonised planet. In this wise attempt, decarbonising of an element of Carbon like Hydrogen and making it into green hydrogen (Carbon free). This factor is responsible for global CO 2 emission to a noticeable 2 %.
Here in this article we will let you know what exactly is this clean source of energy, and why is the world racing towards blending and making carbon free hydrogen. Also how and when NTPC in India has started green hydrogen blending operation.
As the global demand of energy is estimated to reach its peak by the year 2040, there arose a mission 2050 and if the objectives are achieved, it will be a totally different world, which will be more efficient and sustained as the world will be driven along its needs with energies that are safe for the planet like this clean source of energy.
Green Hydrogen : What is Green Hydrogen
Green Hydrogen is nothing but hydrogen which doesn’t emit carbon . It is a simple at the same time a complex process because electric current is used for the separation of hydrogen from oxygen elements in water. This process in science is called Electrolysis.
Now the complexity here that we see it can be that electricity used be also generated only using renewable resources? If yes then the target is achieved, because then the energy produced will be completely without the emission of Carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Green Hydrogen As a Source Of Energy
Green Hydrogen as a energy source is probably the future in terms of fuel for all global automobiles. This clean energy source emits only water vapour after combustion or when its burnt, hence leaving harmful gases into the air unlike coal and oil.
India’s NTPC has started India’s first Green Hydrogen blending operation in piped natural gas network. This attempt is first of its kind in India with a larger goal ahead to reduce carbon emission.
NTPC Begins Green Hydrogen Blending Operation
NTPC, India’s largest power generator has started its project in functional form of blending green hydrogen.
This blending is being done firstly in piped natural gas in Kawas Township Of Surat, Gujarat.
For your Information, the foundation stone of this project was laid by India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on July 2022.
This blending project will supply natural gas to the township. The electrolysis process in this blending project is done through the power of solar energy.
The blending volume is as per approval of 5 %, which in further process of approval and refinement will be taken up to 20 % in volume.
This blended Hydrogen in natural gas will produce the same amount of heat and energy while reducing the CO 2 emission.
This feat when achieved, according to the company will bring India to a global stage in terms of hydrogen economy as only a few selected countries like UK, Germany and Australia have achieved it till now.
Facts And Questions
