China Eyes ‘West to East’ Green Hydrogen Pipeline


China’s Sinopec will construct a pipeline to move hydrogen from sustainable power projects in China’s northwestern Inward Mongolia locale to urban communities in its east, as per a report in state news source Xinhua on Monday.

The pipeline will extend 400 km from Ulanqab in meagerly populated Inward Mongolia to the capital Beijing, and will have an underlying limit of 100,000 tons each year, said the report, refering to Sinopec Director Mama Yongsheng.

Ports will be worked along the pipeline to permit admittance to new potential hydrogen sources, the report added.

While the nation as of now works pipelines for purported “dim hydrogen” created from petroleum product sources, the venture is the country’s first ‘West to East’ green hydrogen transmission line, as indicated by the report.

Green hydrogen is created by parting water particles with sustainable power, and promoted as a perfect substitution for non-renewable energy sources in ventures that are generally difficult to decarbonise.

State-claimed oil and gas goliath Sinopec is China’s biggest hydrogen maker. It reported for this present year it would fabricate a green hydrogen plant in the Inward Mongolian city of Ordos, with arranged yearly limit of 30,000 tons.

The organization likewise sent off a green hydrogen project in Kuqa in the western Xinjiang district in 2021.

China’s state organizer last year declared an objective to deliver 100,000 to 200,000 tons of green hydrogen a year and have around 50,000 hydrogen-fuelled vehicles by 2025, as the nation seeks after an aggressive mission to change towards sustainable power.

In adjoining India, a top government official said last week that India is wanting to give green hydrogen fuel makers impetuses definitely worth 10% of their expenses under a $2 billion plan set to start before the finish of June.
