NTPC Ltd. recently announced signing an agreement with Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to provide financial support for installation and commissioning of Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations (CAAQMS).
NTPC will provide financial support of Rs. 80 crore for installation of 25 CAAQMS across six states and three Union Territories. The CAAQMS will be installed in Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh), Ranchi (Jharkhand), Patna (Bihar), Varanasi, Lucknow, Kanpur and Allahabad (all in Uttar Pradesh), Pimpri – Chinchwad (Maharashtra) and Madurai (Tamil Nadu). Along with these cities, CAAQMS will also be installed in Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Dadar & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu (Port Blair, Silvassa and Daman).
Data garnered from these stations will be used as inputs for Air Quality Index evaluation for the respective cities. NTPC is continuously making efforts to curb pollution in varied ways. With this, the power major has added another feather in its decorated hat in the journey towards sustainable operations.
NTPC has also implemented technology to convert Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) into high Gross Calorific Value (GCV) fuel that can be co-fired in conventional boilers at its Dadri Plant in Delhi NCR. NTPC has commissioned its first FGD unit at Vindhyachal, and is in the process of implementing this eco-friendly technology across all its power plants.
