Green hydrogen use will have a knock-on effect in deployment of high pressure gas vessels for refuelling stationsIndia’s leading stainless steel manufacturer, Jindal Stainless (JSL), has started using green hydrogen in its manufacturing plant in Hisar, Haryana in a ground-breaking venture in line with its commitment to sustainability.

Seen as a major step forward for the green hydrogen economy, JSL is focussing on India’s ambitious target of achieving Net Zero carbon emissions.

JSL has an annual turnover of $4.3 billion and is set to reach three million tonnes of annual melt capacity in FY24 across its two stainless stell plants in Odisha and Haryana.

JSL’s state-of-the-art Haryana plant was established in conjunction with Hygenco Green Energies.  The alkaline bipolar electrolyser has a capacity of 350 Nm3/hr which guarantees an average 90Nm3/hr round-the-clock supply of green hydrogen using solar energy and storage.

Overall, this facility aims at abating 54,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions over 20 years.

Green hydrogen usage in heavy industry is a key indicator of the path that the global hydrogen sector will follow in order to establish this most important of alternative fuels.  From steel production through to refuelling stations for vehicles – using high pressure gas vessels for ground storage – the hydrogen revolution is continuing to gather pace.
