NTPC Partners with Macawber Beekay for Green Coal Projects in India

State-owned power giant NTPC has enlisted Macawber Beekay to supply green coal, derived from municipal solid waste (MSW), to reduce carbon emissions in electricity generation, announced the waste-to-energy firm.

Macawber Beekay Private Ltd (MBL) revealed in a statement that it has secured three NTPC Green Coal projects located in Noida (Uttar Pradesh), Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), and Hubbali (Karnataka).

Green coal, a type of charcoal produced through the thermal treatment process of torrefaction in an oxygen-deficient environment, will be manufactured in three new units. These units will treat 900 tonnes per day (TPD) of MSW in Noida, 500 TPD in Bhopal, and 400 TPD in Hubbali.

This development follows a similar NTPC project in Varanasi, where MBL successfully demonstrated its technology. The combined waste handling capacity of these projects will reach 2,400 TPD, producing 800 tonnes of green coal daily for NTPC.

"We will be setting up the largest waste-to-green coal plant in Greater Noida, with a capacity of 900 TPD," stated Gautam Gupta, Joint Managing Director of Macawber Beekay.

The initiative, slated for completion by August 2025, aims to significantly lower carbon emissions in power generation by utilizing green coal.
