The Researchers At IIIT Delhi Have Developed A Unique Technology That Uses Biomass To Produce Hydrogen.

Bengaluru: An unique technology to produce hydrogen from biomass has been developed by a team of researchers. The team was led by the Professor at the Centre for Sustainable Technologies, and Chair of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Energy Research.

The researchers have found a way to use an electrolyzer that can convert biomass into hydrogen. They used rice husks and wheat straw as their raw material, which they used to produce hydrogen. This process is based on electrolysis, which uses electricity to separate the two elements. The process consumes less energy than other methods of producing hydrogen; it also does not require membranes or other complex equipment.

The research group will be presenting their findings at the International Conference on Renewable Energy Sources (ICRES), which will be held in Bali from June 21-24 this year. The team is optimistic about their chances at winning an award for this work ahead of their presentation.

India uses nearly 50 lakh tonnes of hydrogen for various processes in different sectors, and the hydrogen market is expected to grow substantially in the coming years, says in a statement issued by Bengaluru-based Research on Tuesday.

The country’s hydrogen demand is expected to increase from 5-6 lakh tonnes annually to 12-15 lakh tonnes by 2020, according to an estimate from Research. The growth will be driven by the nation’s growing thirst for fuel cell vehicles and its need for a clean power source for its fast-growing industries.

Developed by Indian scientists and engineers, this process is a novel reactor for converting biomass into a hydrogen rich fuel.

In heterogeneous reactions, the reactants are mixed with one or more other substances). It was explained that one of the results of chemical reaction is that products are created from reactants.

. The two carbon-based by-products are solid carbon, which serves as a carbon sink and can be used in other value-added products, and carbon dioxide, which is nonpotent greenhouse gas and an important source of oxygen.

This indigenous and unique technology is a step towards achieving the goal of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat‘ of the Honourable Prime Minister.”

We are glad to inform that we have successfully completed the project. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India are appreciative of our efforts. We acknowledge the support of Indian Oil Corporation NSE -0.28 % Limited in scaling up the technology to produce 0.25 tonnes of hydrogen per day for use in hydrogen-powered fuel cell buses.

Researchers from the TU Delft have developed a new type of rocket fuel that can be used in hydrogen power plants and various other industries. This green hydrogen could be used in several other industries as well – in the steel industry to decarbonise steel, in agriculture to manufacture green fertilisers, and in many sectors currently using hydrogen produced from fossil fuels. “Moreover, the same platform can be used for methanol and ethanol production,” he adds.
