NTPC mulls eco-friendly power plant

The plant will be based on integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), which creates less pollution and has higher efficiency compared to conventional coal. “NTPC will appoint consultant for dealing with all techno-economic issues relating to 100 MW power project based on IGCC technology by December this year,” a Power Ministry source said. The project is part of NTPC’s cleaner coal drive. The technology turns coal into syngas (or synthesis gas)and removes impurities from it before it is combusted.
