Default The Future is Hydrogen

Come 2007, CNG will be mixed with Hydrogen in Delhi.
The process will start by blending hydrogen with CNG to reduce nitrogen oxide and particulate-matter emission from vehicles by about half. "Hydrogen is the cleanest among all available fuels, including bio-fuels. Its burning emits no carbon and the final result is water," said Dr SK Chopra, special secretary, Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy.

The country's first hydrogen-filling station will begin functioning at the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC)-owned petrol pump near Nigambodh Ghat.
"By next year, a dispenser each for filling pure hydrogen and hydrogen mixed with CNG will be available in Delhi," said Dr RK Malhotra, general manager, R&D, IOC. The cost—Rs 5 crore—will be shared by the IOC and the ministry. The station will be able to provide fuel to about 1,000 vehicles a day.
