Indian Oil assessing multiple pathways for green hydrogen production


Indian Oil Corp Ltd (IOCL), the state-owned oil and gas major with the largest number of refineries in India, is assessing multiple green hydrogen production pathways with a total green hydrogen production capacity of 1 ton per day. It is studying green hydrogen production based on solar electrolysis, biomass gasification, and bio-methanation. 

IOCL said the green hydrogen technology will be demonstrated in 15 fuel cell buses to establish the efficacy, efficiency, and sustainability of the production processes and the fuel cell technology. A pre-feasibility study of the fuel cell technology has already been undertaken for heavy-duty applications. It will generate critical data about fuel cell performance, efficiency, and operational reliability of hydrogen refueling infrastructure. 

Tata Motors has provided two prototype fuel cell buses to IOCL. These buses are being refueled at the hydrogen refueling station of IOCL’s Gujarat Refinery and running on Ministry of Road Transport and Highways of India (MoRTH) approved routes in Vadodara City.
