NTPC’s Pilot Plant to Mitigate Co2 with Micro Algae


NTPC and IOCL set up a pilot plant for bio-fixation of CO2 from flue gas through micro algae at NTPC Faridabad. Two conjoining algae ponds were constructed to draw CO2 from stacks at the project. The project, commissioned in 2010 is said to be ahead of its schedule in January 2014.

This project is part of NTPC’s plan to adopt latest environment practices and protection systems to minimize the impact of power generation on environment. CO2 is a major green house gas contributing to more than 50% to the total predicted warming of the earth’s atmosphere.

NTPC is pursuing the objective of environment protection as one of its prime responsibilities and focuses its efforts to mitigate the impact of its operations on surroundings – around 12-15% of the project cost is spent on environment protection equipment.
