Collaboration plans carbon capture facility in India

Article by Amanda Doyle

CARBON Clean and Green Power International (GPIPL) have been selected to design and build a carbon capture plant with NTPC, India’s largest power utility provider.

The NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance (NETRA) – the R&D section of NTPC – is establishing a CO2 to methanol demonstration plant at NTPC Vindhyachal, India.  The agreement will see Carbon Clean’s technology capture 20 t/d of CO2 from the coal-fired boiler. Carbon Clean will collaborate with GPIPL who won the contract from NTPC.

Aniruddha Sharma, CEO of Carbon Clean, said: “This partnership is a perfect fusion of Carbon Clean’s low-cost capture technology and Green Power and NTPC’s deep industry knowledge. India has been a primary market for Carbon Clean since our formation. We are excited to have won another contract that will contribute to India’s reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by expanding the country’s circular carbon economy.”

Varun Puri, Managing Director of GPIPL, said: “We are delighted to have won our first carbon capture contract. Together with NTPC’s drive for cleaner power and Carbon Clean’s proven and reliable technology, we are confident of bringing about a positive change to the environment. Climate change is a global reality, and we, with pride, will contribute to mitigating it by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions through this project.”

NTPC is already involved with various other carbon capture projects and plans to use captured CO2 in the production of fuels and chemicals.
