Green hydrogen is the future of alternative fuels and farmers must be involved in its production “to take advantage of the huge opportunities”, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said here on Friday. The Minister was speaking at the inaugural function of an exhibition organized by ‘Agrovision’, of which he was the chief patron.
Green hydrogen can be made from organic mass, bio-organic waste and wastewater and can be an alternative to coal imports, he said. “Steel plants, tractors, buses, railways and all other industries will run on green hydrogen. This is the future and now farmers should produce not only ethanol, bio-LNG but also green hydrogen and use the huge opportunity, ”Godkari said.
He told the gathering’s Agrovision Exhibition, where more than 40 workshops were held, has now been held for 13 years and more than three lakh farmers take part in it every year.
