Glass Gets Greener: India's First Green Hydrogen Plant for Float Glass

8 May 2024

Clear Skies Ahead!  INOX Air Products and Asahi India Glass (AIS) are joining forces to create a world-first: India's first-ever green hydrogen plant dedicated to the float glass industry!

Green Hydrogen for a Sustainable Future:

  • Clean Fuel for Cleaner Glass:  This innovative project will use green hydrogen, a clean-burning fuel, to power AIS's float glass production process.

  • Sun Power to the Rescue:  The green hydrogen plant will be powered by solar energy, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and minimizing the environmental impact.

A Pioneering Partnership:

  • Setting the Standard:  This MoU between INOX Air Products and AIS sets a groundbreaking precedent for sustainable glass manufacturing in India.

  • 20-Year Green Pact:  The agreement ensures a reliable supply of green hydrogen for AIS for the next two decades.

First Phase, Big Impact:

  • Early Green Gains:  In the initial phase, the plant will generate 95 tonnes of green hydrogen annually, significantly reducing AIS's carbon footprint.

  • Scaling Up for Success:  The plant has the capacity to produce up to 190 tonnes of green hydrogen per year, paving the way for future expansion.

A Greener Future for Glass Manufacturing:

  • Solar Investment Boosts Sustainability:  AIS's investment in the solar power plant powering the green hydrogen production further strengthens their commitment to eco-friendly practices.

  • Advanced Glass with a Clean Conscience:  This project allows AIS to manufacture high-quality float glass for automobiles and architecture while minimizing their environmental impact.

The collaboration between INOX Air Products and AIS is a major leap forward for sustainable glass manufacturing in India. By harnessing the power of green hydrogen and solar energy, this project paves the way for a cleaner and greener future for the industry!
