GAIL to Set up India’s Largest PEM Based Green Hydrogen Project

Published on May 13, 2022
Current Context: GAIL to line Up India’s Largest PEM Based Green Hydrogen Project.
GAIL to Set up India’s Largest PEM Based Green Hydrogen Project
  • The project would be installed at GAIL’s Vijaipur Complex, in Guna District of Madhya Pradesh, and this may be supported by renewable power.
  • This has been designed to produce around 4.3 Metric Tons of Hydrogen per day with a purity of about 99.999% volume.
  • The project is scheduled to be commissioned by November 2023. In line with the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat.
  • GAIL had also commenced India’s first project of blending hydrogen into the gas system in January.
  • As of now, GAIL has been successful in blending upto 2% (v/v) hydrogen in gas within the CGD network.
  • Static Part:
    • What is green hydrogen?
      • Green hydrogen is nothing but regular hydrogen that is obtained by separating hydrogen and oxygen molecules of water by using only renewable energy.
      • Green hydrogen is created by a process called electrolysis. within which an appropriate amount of electrical current passes through water, it separates hydrogen and oxygen.
      • But one condition that regardless of the energy utilized in electrolysis must be renewable of unpolluted energy, which can not release any carbonic acid gas into the atmosphere.
  • Use of green hydrogen:
    • Hydrogen is an energy carrier and may deliver or store an incredible amount of energy.
    • It is employed in fuel cells to get electricity, or power and warmth which in turn reduces the impact on the environment.
    • Hydrogen and fuel cells have the potential to cut back greenhouse emission emissions in many applications.
  • National Hydrogen Mission:
    • The Union allows 2021-22 has announced a National Hydrogen Energy Mission (NHM) that may draw up a road map for using hydrogen as an energy source.
    • Hydrogen as a fuel is already used widely across the globe with a worldwide value of $900 million.
    • China is the current global leader in green hydrogen with an output of 20 million tonnes.
    • In the long run, solar power and biomass are used more to generate hydrogen.

a. Single replacement Process
b. Synthesis Process
c. Electrolysis
d. Double replacement Process
