Medilytix Bureau: NSE-1.90% on Friday said it has started capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the flue gas stream at its thermal plant in Vindhyachal. NTPC Ltd. (NSE-1.90%), India’s largest integrated power company, has captured its first CO2 on August 15th, 2022 from the flue gas stream of the 500 MW coal-based power plant (Unit-13) at Vindhyachal Super Thermal Power Station (VSTPS),” a company statement said. According to the statement, this plant is designed to capture 20 tonnes of CO2 every day. This initiative will pave the way for scaling up CO2 capture technology and greening coal power generation.

At the same location, NTPC is also setting up a green hydrogen generation plant, which will use proton exchange membrane electrolyzers to produce 2 tonnes per day of hydrogen. Subsequently, 20 tonnes per day of captured CO2 and 2 tonnes per day of hydrogen will be used to produce 10 tonnes per day of green methanol through a heterogeneous catalytic process.
