Carbon Capture Begins at NTPC Power Plant in India
“We are thrilled to see our technology begin to capture carbon from NTPC’s plant and look forward to seeing how the CO2-to-methanol project develops in the future. This project demonstrates how carbon capture supports industrial decarbonisation, as well as providing opportunities for companies to join the growing circular carbon economy,” Carbon Clean Chair and CEO Aniruddha Sharma said. The capture of CO2 from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants, and its conversion to methanol, is a priority area for NTPC, and is expected to create potential new business opportunities and revenue streams for the company.
“It is a great honor and achievement to successfully demonstrate the carbon capture project at NTPC’s Vindhyachal plant,” Green Power International Director Surbhi Puri said. “It is a matter of great pride for us to work with Carbon Clean on this project that will help deliver a greener and cleaner future. Decarbonisation through carbon capture is the future. With this small contribution towards the net-zero economy, we hope to inspire the industry to make further strides in this decarbonisation drive.”
Carbon Clean’s CDRMax carbon capture technology can be used with point source gases that contain CO2 concentrations between 3% and 25% by volume and produces CO2 with purities greater than 99%, which can then be sold, re-used, or sequestered. The CDRMax process uses the company’s proprietary solvent, process equipment design, and advanced heat integration to significantly reduce both capital and operating costs.
