Asahi India Glass Limited (AIS) and INOX Air Products (INOXAP) have entered into a 20-year offtake agreement for supply of green hydrogen to AIS' greenfield float glass facility in Soniyana in Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, India.

This will be India's first-ever green hydrogen plant for the float glass industry, paving the way for sustainable glass production. The plant will have the capacity to generate up to 190 tpy of green hydrogen through the electrolysis process. Slated to be commissioned by July 2024, the plant will be powered by solar energy.

INOXAP is responsible for the design, engineering, installation, operations and a continuous supply of Green Hydrogen to the AIS facility for 20 years. In the first phase, 95 tpy of green hydrogen will be supplied to AIS. As a part of the agreement, AIS will invest in the solar power plant, which would supply renewable energy for the generation of green hydrogen, which would be consumed in AIS' float glass manufacturing process.

AIS is setting up a greenfield project in Chittorgarh, Rajasthan for manufacturing high-quality float glass to be used for automotive and architectural purposes with technology collaboration from its partners – AGC Europe. The agreement with INOX Air Products for setting up a green hydrogen plant for this project is a part of AIS' overall sustainability strategy and is inspired by their vision to reduce carbon footprint in the glass manufacturing process.

Commenting on the development, Siddharth Jain, Managing Director, INOX Air Products, stated, "We are proud to begin our green hydrogen journey as we partner with AIS for their Chittorgarh facility and giving shape to our first green hydrogen plant as well as India's first-ever green hydrogen plant for the float glass sector. This development will substantially reduce CO2 emissions. The trust shown by AIS in our capabilities is a testament to our expertise in safety, technology and project management. Green hydrogen will play a pivotal role in India's energy transition towards decarbonisation and secure energy for our country as well as the planet."
