UP govt to set up waste-to-green coal plant in Noida

  • | Monday | 10th June, 2024

The Uttar Pradesh government will set up a waste-to-green coal plant to address energy and waste management challenge in Noida. The plant will have the capacity of processing 900 TDP waste per day where electricity will be generated from waste. The project will hugely compliment the Swachh Bharat Mission. The plant is expected to produce 200 tonnes of green coal and generate 1,000 MW of electricity on a daily basis. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lauded this project for its role in supporting the Swachh Bharat Mission, ensuring uninterrupted power supply, and achieving the dream of a self-reliant India. This project, led by Macawber Beekay Private Limited (MBL), is Indias largest green coal project. The plan for producing torrefied charcoal from waste began four years ago. NTPC Limited planned to make torrefied charcoal from municipal waste for about four years. Subsequently, its subsidiary, NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Limited, awarded the project to Macawber Beekay on an EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) basis. The total capacity of the green coal plant will be 900 TDP per day of waste management. With an input of 900 TDP municipal solid waste (MSW), the plant will produce 200 tonnes of green coal. Joint Managing Director of Macawber Beekay Gautam Gupta highlighted that this project is a key example of the Make in India initiative. We will establish the largest waste-to-green coal plant in Greater Noida with a capacity of 900 TPD. Our company has developed a leading solution to convert municipal solid waste into environment-friendly green coal. The indigenously developed technology transforms waste into a viable alternative to fossil fuels, addressing waste management challenges and revolutionising energy production, Gupta said. He highlighted that this solves the challenges of waste management. Benefits are achieved at every level by reducing coal-related costs, mining and health hazards associated with waste dumping. Senior General Manager (Projects) Brijesh Kumar Singh emphasised the environmental benefits, including carbon neutrality and economic gains. Using one kg of green coal as solid fuel in place of fossil coal can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about two kilograms per kg of fossil coal.
