India could embrace CO2 capture technology – The Hindu

India will explore the possibility of introducing technologies for capturing carbon dioxide emitted while burning coal and other fossil fuels, the country’s Coal Secretary Susheel Kumar has said. Mr. Kumar is leading an Indian delegation at an international conference on Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) in Alabama.

“Attending the conference has been very informative for my colleagues and me, we now have some food for thought to carefully contemplate the feasibility of CCUS with relevance to India,” he said.

Commercial uses

A lot of advanced research in the area, of late, has been focussing on capturing carbon dioxide emissions from sources like coal-fired power plants, to either reuse or store it so it will not enter the atmosphere. CO2 has commercial and industrial uses, particularly for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in depleting oil fields. Carbon dioxide has the ability to change the properties of oil and make it easier to extract.

The International Energy Agency’s Green House Gas Research and Development initiative organises the annual Post Combustion Carbon Conference, which is currently in session in Birmingham, in the State of Alabama.

Dr. Prabhat Ranjan, Executive Director of Technology Information Forecast and Assessment Council (TIFAC) of Department of Science and Technology; S.K. Acahrya, Chairman and Managing Director of Neyveli Lignite Corporation; and other officials are part of the Indian delegation at the conference.
