NTPC demonstrates zero emission ‘Hydrogen Cooking’

NTPC unveiled the hydrogen cooking with supply of hydrogen from the existing Green Hydrogen plant at its campus at Greater Noida.

NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance (NETRA), the R&D wing of India’s largest integrated power utility NTPC, demonstrated successful hydrogen cooking with supply of hydrogen from the existing Green Hydrogen plant at its campus at Greater Noida.

Burning characteristics of hydrogen is much different from LPG or PNG with regards to flame color (almost invisible), flame temperature (1200-1500C), flame propagation speed etc. Also, unlike LPG or PNG, hydrogen cannot be premixed with air prior to its ignition – else it would form explosive mixture.

NTPC said that considering above, hydrogen burner was designed and used in a modified cookstove to prepare food. It may also be mentioned that the emission from hydrogen burner is only water vapour with zero carboneous element.

 Arne Ballantine, CEO (Ohmium), Shaswattam, ED (NETRA) and senior officials of NTPC were present at the demonstration to mark the occasion iterated versatility of green hydrogen as a clean energy source to support environmental and sustainability efforts across a diverse array of applications.

 NTPC said that it has successfully commissioned blending project that incorporate green hydrogen with PNG (Piped Natural Gas) at Kawas. It has also come up with green hydrogen mobility project in Leh which is set to be commissioned besides another project for setting up green hydrogen-based microgrids in remote locations for Indian Army is in progress.

Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL) has also unveiled plans recently for a green hydrogen blending pilot initiative in Ahmedabad. This project aims to combine green hydrogen with natural gas to serve over 4,000 residential and commercial customers in the city.

Also, the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has announced that it has partnered with the World Bank and has launched a study to chart the course for hydrogen transmission through natural gas pipelines and city gas distribution networks.
