Clean Coal Technology Summit 2012, October 4, 2012 || New Delhi

clean-coal-technology-summit-2012


The need to mitigate environmental impacts has driven the development of a variety of technologies designed to burn coal more cleanly and efficiently. Attention has been focused on processes that add value to coal by reducing the percentage of minerals or impurities ingrained in coal i.e. coal preparation, ‘end of pipe’ technology to remove undesirable pollutants after combustion, coal conversion process (converting coal into gas or liquid) and the clean-up of waste gases (e.g. flue gas desulphurization or FGD, denitrification and ultimately carbon capture and storage). It also includes incremental hardware and software measures that can improve the overall efficiency of coal use, particularly the thermal efficiency of boilers and power plants. More advanced cleaner coal technologies to reduce CO2, such as carbon capture and storage are also included.

Given this background, CII organized Clean Coal Technology Summit 2012 on October 4, 2012 at New Delhi to discuss the issues related to renovation & modernization, gasification and other combustion and end-of-pipe technologies. The summit was inaugurated by Mr Anil Sardana, Chairman, CII National Committee on Power & Managing Director, Tata Power Company Ltd; Mr Shyam Saran, Former Special Envoy on Climate Change to Prime Minister of India & Member of the Board, Wipro Ltd; Mr Suresh P Prabhu, Former Union Minister for Power & Chairman, Council for Energy, Environment & Water; Dr R Chidambaram, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India.

delivered his address at the inaugural session, Dr R Chidambaram, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India, highlighted that, “Sustainable energy security and mitigation of and adaptation to the climate change threat are two of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. However, as a developing country, India cannot compromise on its power needs and there is a need for per capita electricity consumption to increase by over 6 times for India to become a developed country. He further added that as coal will continue to be the mainstay of India’s electricity mix, it is imperative that we progressively reduce the carbon that we produce and emit through technology interventions”. Mentioning some of the initiatives, he said, “An MoU between NTPC, BHEL and IGCAR is currently developing an 800 MW thermal based plant and pre project activties entailing development of boiler tube and blade material are currently underway”. He stressed on the need for enhanced interaction between the academia and the industry and also emphasised the need for greater collaboration with global counterparts on technologies to accelerate the pace of technology development.

Importance of Coal as an overall component of India’s energy security was also discussed. It was highlighted that the challenge is to use coal in an efficient and clean manner without the associated issues of carbon emissions. In fact, many technologies have been deployed for the more efficient use of coal. We in India need to explore global technologies in this space and also technologies like carbon capture and sequestration which is still in the trial stage. Moreover, given our energy requirements all possible energy sources would be needed to sustain GDP growth rates of 8-9 per cent. However, coal, potentially the most plentiful source, has not been managed properly.

Recognizing the importance of Coal, it was highlighted that the Government is now in the process of launching a National Mission on Clean Coal. This is a collaborative initiative and will take on board the corporate sector as well as draw on expertise from different domains and global players. Thereby, emphasizing the need for cooperation between the government and the industry as well as collaborations with global players.

Reiterating the importance of coal, Mr Suresh P Prabhu, Former Union Minister for Power & Chairman, Council for Energy, Environment & Water said, “Coal is an important part of India’s energy security. The challenge is to use coal in an efficient and clean manner without the associated issues of carbon emissions. In fact, many technologies have been deployed for the more efficient use of coal. We in India need to explore global technologies in this space and also technologies like Carbon Capture and Sequestration which is still in the trial stage”.

In the course of his remarks, Mr Shyam Saran, Former Special Envoy on Climate Change to Prime Minister of India & Member of the Board, Wipro Ltd, said, “Given our energy requirements all possible energy sources would be needed to sustain GDP growth rates of 8-9 per cent. However, coal, potentially the most plentiful source, has not been managed properly.” Highlighting the importance of coal not only in India but globally as well he said, “ Stronger focus on coal is required as there are now question marks about the use of nuclear power and the replacement cost of 1 barrel of oil is set to increase by 350%. In fact, the share of coal in the global energy mix is set to increase to 28 per cent by 2020 up from 25 per cent currently. Recognising the importance of Coal, the Government is now in the process of launching a National Mission on Clean Coal. This is a collaborative initiative and will take on board the corporate sector as well as draw on expertise from different domains and global players. In fact, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between DRDO and corporations like Thermax has been signed for coal gasification.” He also emphasized on the need for cooperation between the government and the industry as well as collaborations with global players.

Mr Anil Sardana, Chairman, CII National Committee on Power & Managing Director, Tata Power Company Ltd said, “It is important to capture the best coal washing technologies for coal preparation and Coal India needs to ensure that coal is washed sized and then dispatched.” He further added that there are a number of technologies available on the coal conversion front as well that convert coal to oil and for coal gasification. However, to make the existing plants more efficient, he emphasized on the role of renovation & Modernisation (R&M). On the use of imported coal, he said, “When coal is being imported, it is important to ensure that the ports are booked on a long term basis.”
