JSL use green hydrogen in Hisar’s stainless steel plant

Jindal Stainless (JSL) has initiated the groundbreaking use of green hydrogen at its stainless steel plant in Hisar, Haryana, aligning with its dedication to sustainability and India’s ambitious Net Zero carbon emissions targets.

In collaboration with Hygenco Green Energies Private Limited, JSL has established a state-of-the-art fully automated plant. Equipped with an alkaline bipolar electrolyser, the facility ensures a continuous supply of green hydrogen, averaging 90Nm3/hr, utilizing dedicated solar energy and storage. Over a span of 20 years, the plant aims to mitigate approximately 54,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions through a long-term off-take agreement.

Featuring a comprehensive monitoring system, the facility tracks hydrogen and renewable energy generation, as well as states of charge, pressure, and temperature. With the capability to make real-time decisions for optimizing efficiency, Hygenco’s technology enhances hydrogen yield, delivering cost-competitive solutions.

India’s commitment to green hydrogen is underscored by the National Green Hydrogen Mission, envisioning the production of five million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030.

Jindal Stainless has made significant strides towards its sustainability goals, with a midterm target of achieving a 50% reduction in carbon emissions well before the 2035 deadline, aiming for Net Zero emissions by 2050.
