Aranayak Fuel and Power, a Sri Lankan renewable energy company, is set to break ground on the country’s first biomass-based green hydrogen plant. The plant will produce green hydrogen, a zero-emission fuel, using biomass as a feedstock.
The project is part of the government’s efforts to promote renewable energy and reduce the country’s carbon footprint. The green hydrogen produced at the plant will be used as a fuel for transport, power generation, and other industrial applications.
The plant is expected to have a capacity of 5 MW and will use locally sourced biomass as a feedstock. The company has already secured the necessary permits and is set to commence construction later this year.
The use of biomass as a feedstock for green hydrogen production offers several benefits, including reducing waste and creating a new revenue stream for farmers and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector. The project is also expected to create job opportunities in the region and contribute to the local economy.
The green hydrogen plant is part of Aranayak Fuel and Power’s broader vision to develop a portfolio of renewable energy projects in Sri Lanka. The company aims to become a leader in the country’s renewable energy sector and contribute to its transition towards a low-carbon economy.
The project has garnered support from various stakeholders, including the government, investors, and international organizations. The development of the biomass-based green hydrogen plant is a significant step towards achieving Sri Lanka’s renewable energy targets and reducing its dependence on fossil fuels.
