  • In the future, NTPC will replace the coal firing unit with carbonaceous and non-carbonaceous fuels.
  • This naturally reduces the carbon released compared to coal-fired units.
  • Carbonaceous elements include methanol and agri-wastes, and noncarbonaceous elements include ammonia.
  • The primary objective of this MoU is to co-fire methanol and bio-mass with coal.
  • In the future, they will explore the opportunity to fire using ammonia which will release the least carbon than any other firing material.
  • This will slowly reduce the carbon footprint in the atmosphere in the future from power plants.
  • NTPC is planning to reduce the carbon footprint by 57GW (gigawatts) of coal-fired units.
