IIT Delhi researchers complete successful hydrogen production project

Researchers from IIT Delhi, in collaboration with the ONGC Energy Centre, India, have successfully generated clean hydrogen fuel from water at a low-cost.

IIT Delhi yesterday (8th Feb) shared details of the project, stating that those involved successful split water by a process known as sulphur-iodine thermochemical hydrogen cycle to generate low-cost, clean hydrogen fuel for industrial consumption.

Commenting on the achievement, Prof. Sreedevi Upadhyayula, Department of Chemical Engineering said, “There is an imminent need to switch over to renewable energy sources such as water.”

“The thermo-chemical hydrogen cycle for splitting water offers a practical means of generating hydrogen as a fuel and also oxygen as a by-product. Hence, it can be considered favourably for the commercial production of hydrogen on a large scale, in the near future.”
