Cleaner and greener tomorrow
A cleaner environment, less pollutant energy, a sustainable living model are some of the ambitious target set by the government at the centre. This is both applicable for the industry and for the people of the country.
Biomass energy is generated through organic matter and can be utilised for various applications, to produce heat and electricity, or used in combined heat and power (CHP) plants; in combination with fossil fuels (co-firing) to improve efficiency and reduce the build up of combustion residues; to replace petroleum as a source for transportation fuels.
Realising the potential
With truckloads of untreated waste being generated daily, while the country is struggling to achieve consistent power supply to all, waste-to-energy seems to be a bright proposition. However, awareness and implementation remain major constraints.
CIL invites global firms for consultancy on coal gasification
State owned CILs consultancy arm Central Mine Planning and Development Institute (CMPDI) has invited applications from global firms for providing consultancy on formulating bid documents with regard to development of underground coal gasification projects.
Biomass plays a vital role especially in rural areas, as it constitutes the major energy source to majority of households in India, but this resource has been small in terms of comparative scale in India, when compared to the other green energy sources.
Clean Coal Technology, Low Carbon Power - are these Oxymorons?
Do you know about Kiribati? In case you do not, it is a nation of 100,000 people living on 32 atolls in the Pacific Ocean, feeling increasingly threatened by the creeping rise in sea water levels due to melting ice caps, caused in turn by the phenomenon known as global warming.
India needs to modernise its existing plants
As per GoI estimates, coal will continue to be the mainstay of power generation in India for the next decade. Efficient technologies like supercritical technology can play an advanced role in balancing between providing access to power to all its citizens with the need for emission control.
