The Hydrogen Stream: Odisha approves four green hydrogen, ammonia projects worth INR 45,865 crore


India’s state of Odisha has approved four green hydrogen and green ammonia projects worth INR 45,865 crore (over $5.5 billion). Welspun New Energy will set up a 0.70 million metric tonne per annum (mmtpa) green ammonia manufacturing unit in Kendrapada with an investment of INR 13,860 crore. Sembcorp Green Hydrogen India will establish a 0.72 mmtpa green ammonia manufacturing unit in Gopalpur, Ganjam, with an investment of INR 13,000 crore.  ReNew E-Fuels has received an approval for the investment of INR 10,005 crore to establish a green hydrogen (100 ktpa) and green methanol (500 ktpa) manufacturing unit in Malkangiri as well as approval of INR 9,000 crore to establish green hydrogen (60 ktpa) and green methanol (300 ktpa) manufacturing unit in Rayagada.

Brazil‘s state of Ceará has signed an agreement with Grupo Jepri for a €3.3 billion ($3.6 billion) investment to develop a green hydrogen plant in the Pecém Industrial and Port Complex, with an annual production rate of 1.2 million tons. The state authorities said that the project is scheduled to start construction in 2025, with green hydrogen production by the fourth quarter of 2026 or the first quarter of 2027.

Adnoc has opened “H2GO,” the region’s first high-speed green hydrogen refueling station in Masdar City, the United Arab Emirates. It will test a fleet of zero-emission hydrogen-powered vehicles. It said the station, operated by Adnoc Distribution, creates green hydrogen from water, using an electrolyzer powered by clean grid electricity.

Getech has laucnhed a natural hydrogen exploration project in Eastern Europe for an undisclosed European energy company. The study focuses on harnessing natural hydrogen from ophiolites, igneous rock formations seen as prime sources. Getech uses 3D inversion modeling to distinguish magnetic properties of ophiolites from other magnetic anomalies.

The European Council and the European Parliament have reached a provisional political agreement on EU rules for renewable and natural gases and the internal hydrogen market. The council said that the agreement outlines a split between transmission system operators (TSOs) and distribution system operators (DSOs) for hydrogen.

Lhyfe has secured the rights to develop a green hydrogen production and distribution site in Montoir-de-Bretagne, France, following a call for proposals by the port of Nantes Saint-Nazaire. The project involves the construction of an industrial unit with a production capacity of up to 85 tons per day of green and renewable hydrogen. The French hydrogen producer said that the site should be operational by 2028, subject to regulatory approvals and the finalization of financial plans.
