With the aim of addressing opportunities and challenges in the development of clean coal technologies, the National Centre for Clean Coal Research and Development (NCCCR&D) has been launched at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.) by the Department of Science & Technology (DST).
NSSSR&D is a national consortium on clean coal research and development led by IISc. with IIT- Kharagpur, Madras, Guwahati, Bombay, and Hyderabad as partners.
The consortium will work on identifying existing gaps in clean coal technology as the major problem Indian power plants were facing was a high level of pollutants and low thermal efficiency.
The centre will also address challenges like development of low emission combustion and gasification, and achieve high cycle efficiencies with reduced pollutants, an IISc. note stated. Read more
