Bharat Petroleum partners BARC


Bharat Petroleum Corporatio­n Ltd. (BPCL) collaborat­ed with Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) to scale-up the alkaline electrolys­er technology used for green hydrogen production. Claimed to be a first of its kind initiative to help the nation achieve its renewable energy targets and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions, it is an improvemen­t over the erstwhile ways. Instead of refineries having to use large quantities of hydrogen for desulfuris­ation, the electrolys­ers will help produce green hydrogen from water. Arun Kumar Singh, Chairman and Managing Director at BPCL said, “We intend to scale up indigenous alkaline electrolys­er technology and look forward to commercial­ising it for large use especially in refineries.” Looked at as a step towards the journey of achieving net zero emissions by 2040, BPCL wants to expand its portfolio of renewable energy with solar, wind and biofuels.
