  • Tackling emissions from the thermal power sector in India is an important priority for achieving India’s energy transition goals. Towards this, flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) technology is expected to play a significant role.
  • To recall, the government in 2015 for the first time had issued the emission standards for controlling SO2 emissions from coal-based power plantsrequiringimplementation of FGDs within two years.However, given the sheer volume of work and industry’s challenges on the implementation, costs& financing fronts, the timelines were extended to December 2022.
  • In animportant developmentlast year, the norms were further amended and instead of a uniform deadline, staggered timelines of up to December 2024 were issued to plants based on their location.
  • As per the amended norms, about 596 units have been grouped under three categories, A, B and C.Those in category A (79 units of 22.9 GW capacity) are required to comply with the rules by December 2022while those in B (68 units of 23 GW capacity) by December 2023. The majority in C (449 units of 163 GW capacity) are required to comply by December 2024. A penalty of 10-20 paise per unit for non-compliance beyond the assigned time limit payable by the generators has also been specified under the amended rules.
  • Overall, on-the ground progress in implementation of FGDs has been slow even six years after the norms were first notified. Only 1 per centor 2,160 MW of the coal and lignite-based projects have commissioned their FGD systems so far. Nonetheless, FGD implementation by the centrally owned power units has been progressing at a much faster pace compared to theprivate and the state-owned units. As of December 2021, bids were awarded for 87 per cent of the planned FGD capacity for the centrally-owned units compared to only 8 per cent for the state-owned and 28 per cent for the privately-owned capacities.
  • While the extended timelines have brought in some respite, there are some concerns that still need to be addressed. Developers have expressed concerns about state-level regulators resisting the approval of revised emission standards as a change-in law event. Further, securing debt financing for coal-based units that do not have long-term PPAs or are facing issues such as lack of PPAs could be a challenge. Disruptions due to the pandemic, equipment imports restrictions, minimum local component requirements, etc.have also added to challenges in implementation.
  • The mission of this conference is to provide a platform to discuss the genco experience and plans as well as the issues and challenges associated with FGD implementation. It will also showcase best practices as well as latest and promising technology solutions.
