NTPC signs deal with Chempolis to explore feasibility of bamboo-based bio-refinery in Assam

NTPC on Tuesday has signed an agreement with Chempolis India, a Fortum group associate company and a leading Finnish bio-refining technology provider to explore the feasibility of setting up a Bamboo-based Bio-Refinery in Bongaigaon, Assam.

As per the statement, Chempolis will work with NTPC to conduct the feasibility study for the project which shall utilize bamboo for the production of 2G Ethanol, Bio-Coal for thermal power plant & other value-added products. 

Further, the proposed Bio-Refinery is planned as an integration project with NTPC Bongaigaon Power Plant, where all utility requirements such as steam, power, etc., shall be supplied from the power plant and the Bio-Coal produced by the Bio-Refinery shall partly replace coal in the power plant, effectively converting 5% of the generation of the power plant to green. 

The project will support NTPC’s decarbonization efforts, create job opportunities and build a sustainable model by promoting the use of locally available resources.
