Lucknow. India's leading integrated power utility NTPC has achieved a new milestone by successfully performing co-firing of 20% toroids biomass in its Unit 4 in UP's Tanda project, which has achieved a significant progress towards building a permanent future happened.

The initiative is a new initiative in India's power sector, reflecting NTPC's commitment to dekrbonizing the existing coal -based fleet and move towards the net zero emission target.

Torfated biomass, generated by heating biomass in the absence of oxygen, displays the same characteristics of coal, which makes it suitable for high co-firing percentage without critical system modifications. It is worth noting that the cost of gross calorie value (GCV) and torfined biomass pellets is currently equal to imported coal.

NTPC's attempt towards dekribonization involves the discovery of biomass co-firing in both existing and new coal power plants. Each percent of biomass co-firing has the ability to reduce carbon emissions by about the same percentage. Additionally, biomass co-firing also reduces air pollution caused by farmers burning straight stubble in the fields.

NTPC expects significant possibility of cost reduction in long periods with technology and market maturation, which will set a standard for sustainable power generation practices in the country.

Overall, NTPC has given contract of 52 lakh metric tonnes of biomass pellets for 20 NTPC stations and 01 joint enterprises (APCPL-Jhajjar) stations and so far 13 NTPC and 02 Joint Enterprises (APCPL-Jhajjar and NSPCL Bhilai) The receipt is 254063 MT.

To spread awareness about the manufacture of biomass pellets from agricultural remains, NTPC is setting up biomass pellets plants at various places,
Like Lehra Mohabbat,
22 TPD non-torified pellets plant in Bhatinda, 100 TPD torified and 100 TPD non-torified pellets plant in APCPL-Jhajjar, and 50 TPD non-torrent pelletps are being installed in NCPS-Dadri. Biomass pellets produced from pellet plants will be used in thermal power stations in firing.
