NTPC and Macawber Beekay Launch Major Green Coal Projects

State-owned power giant NTPC has enlisted Macawber Beekay Private Ltd (MBL) to supply green coal in a bid to reduce carbon emissions while generating electricity. The waste-to-energy firm announced that it has secured contracts for three NTPC projects in Noida (Uttar Pradesh), Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), and Hubbali (Karnataka).

Green coal, a form of charcoal made from municipal solid waste (MSW) through a process called torrefaction, is produced in an oxygen-deficient environment. According to MBL, this innovative approach will contribute significantly to NTPC's carbon reduction goals.

MBL plans to establish three green coal manufacturing units with substantial processing capacities: 900 tonnes per day (TPD) in Noida, 500 TPD in Bhopal, and 400 TPD in Hubbali. These units will convert MSW into charcoal, commonly referred to as green coal, which NTPC will use to generate power.

This initiative follows a similar successful project in Varanasi, also awarded by NTPC. The Varanasi plant, with a 600 TPD waste handling capacity, produces 200 tonnes of green coal daily. Gautam Gupta, Joint Managing Director of Macawber Beekay, highlighted the significance of these projects, stating, "We will be setting up the largest waste-to-green coal plant in Greater Noida, with a capacity of 900 TPD."

MBL aims to complete the three new projects by August 2025, in the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) mode. Once operational, these projects will collectively handle 2,400 TPD of waste and produce 800 tonnes of green coal daily for NTPC.

The adoption of green coal aligns with NTPC's commitment to sustainable energy practices and reducing its carbon footprint. This collaboration marks a significant step towards achieving cleaner energy production and effective waste management.

Noida-based Macawber Beekay continues to lead in the waste-to-energy sector, reinforcing the importance of innovative solutions in addressing environmental challenges and supporting the transition to greener energy sources.
