Asahi India Glass & INOX Air Products Forge 20-Year Pact for Green Hydrogen

Pioneering Green Hydrogen Initiative for Float Glass Industry

Asahi India Glass & INOX Air Products Forge 20-Year Pact for Green Hydrogen

Asahi India Glass Limited (AIS), India’s premier glass manufacturer, and INOX Air Products (INOXAP) have embarked on a pioneering journey towards sustainability. This landmark 20-year offtake agreement for the supply of Green Hydrogen is not just a significant milestone, but a testament to our commitment to innovation. It establishes India’s first-ever Green Hydrogen Plant for the float glass industry, setting a precedent for sustainable production.

Sustainable Partnership to Reduce Carbon Emissions in Rajasthan

Under the agreement, INOXAP will design, engineer, install, and operate a Green Hydrogen Plant that can generate up to 190 Tons of Green Hydrogen annually through electrolysis. Slated for commissioning by July 2024, the plant, powered entirely by solar energy, will supply 95 Tons per Annum (TPA) of Green Hydrogen to AIS’s greenfield float glass facility in Soniyana, Chittorgarh, Rajasthan. This strategic collaboration not only reinforces AIS’s commitment to sustainability but also brings us closer to a future with significantly reduced carbon emissions.

AIS’s Commitment to Green Energy Reinforces India’s Renewable Leadership

Rupinder Shelly, COO-Architectural Glass at Asahi India Glass Ltd, expressed pride in AIS’s role as a leader in green energy adoption within the float glass industry. The partnership with INOX Air Products signifies AIS’s strong dedication to reducing its carbon footprint and embracing sustainable manufacturing practices. With a vision to utilize 94% of its power requirements from green and sustainable energy sources, AIS is setting an example in promoting environmental stewardship and circular economy principles.

Empowering India’s Energy Transition Towards Decarbonization

Siddharth Jain, Managing Director of INOX Air Products, emphasized the pivotal role of Green Hydrogen in India’s energy transition journey. By substantially reducing CO2 emissions and fostering renewable energy adoption, this collaboration echoes India’s unwavering commitment to a greener future. Under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Modi, India is driving significant strides towards net-zero emissions by 2070, positioning itself as a global leader in sustainable development.

The partnership between Asahi India Glass and INOX Air Products signifies a paradigm shift towards sustainable manufacturing practices in the float glass industry. As India accelerates its renewable energy transition, initiatives like the Green Hydrogen Plant pave the way for a cleaner, greener, and more resilient future.
