The project is designed to enable the production of low-carbon emissions steel through CO2 capture of up to 2 mtpa from the available blast furnace gases.
CIMFR Jharkhand will set up a methanol plant which will help to reduce the dependency on imported crude. CIMFR has signed an MoU with Dastur who will provide the basic engineering and design along with its energy affiliate Dastur Energy.
India could reduce its dependency on imported coal through concerted efforts by allowing more private players to come..
This innovative solution – the first of its kind in India – is showing how American technology can help reduce GHG emissions in refinery operations while enhancing the energy security of India through EOR.
ArcelorMittal, the world’s leading steel maker, and India-based consultant Dastur and its affiliate Dastur Energy is set to do research on an industrial-scale solution for carbon capture from blast furnace-based steel making operations, likely helping transform the way steel is produced.
Dastur and its affiliate Dastur Energy is looking to facilitate the setting up of large-scale coal gasification clusters in India to produce emission-free clean energy from high ash coal which can be utilised by the downstream industries.
BPCL Kochi is one of the largest refineries in India, producing over 1.2 mtpa of petcoke from its delayed coker unit. Given the likely regulatory restrictions surrounding petcoke in the near future, BPCL is looking at gasification..
Contrary to the claims of popular science we will not magically transform ourselves into the world of carbon-free renewables, however, well-intentioned our efforts are…
Gasification with CCUS needs to be engineered and applied in a way which preserves the economics, growth, quality, and scale of operation of the industrial economy.
India is keen to collaborate with the US department of energy to source technology for coal gasification to tap into the country’s large reserves, improve its fuel efficiency and reduce dependence on imports.
