Hydrogen “hythane” in India

Greg Solomon, Chairman of Eden Energy, is developing an infrastructure for hydrogen in India.

Solomon says the hydrogen is to be made from natural gas, to cover more than 50 percent of India.  One of the energy convergents will be to Hythane, a blend of hydrogen and natural gas.

India uses natural gas in their bus system. Nox, a major constiuent of photochemical smog, is a serious issue in India. Nox is cut in half when Hythane is used instead of natural gas. Four major Hythane bus demonstration projects are planned in Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Kanpur.

Solomon talks about when the hydrogen system will come online.
