    NTPC commissions green coal project in Varanasi

    March 16, 2023 - Accord Fintech


      India, March 16 -- NTPC has commissioned first-of-its-kind commercial green coal project in Varanasi, which will make torrefied charcoal from municipal waste. Nearly three years ago NTPC had planned to make green coal (torrefied charcoal) from municipal waste.

      NTPC's arm NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVNL) had awarded the project on an EPC (engineering procurement construction) basis to Macawber Beekay, and recently the first reactor module of 200 tonnes per day (TPD) capacity green coal plant was installed and commissioned for NTPC's Harit Koyla (Green Coal) Pariyojna plant at Ramana in Varanasi.

      The total capacity of this plant after installation of all three modules shall be 600 TPD of waste handling capacity. The plant is built on 20 acres of land. Torrefied charcoal (green coal) which is similar to natural coal can be successfully blended with fuel in thermal power plants to produce electricity.

      NTPC is the largest power utility company in India and has presence in Coal, Gas, Solar PV, Hydro and Wind Power Generation and Coal Mining.
