Coal remains central to India’s power needs primarily due to energy security issues.Coal accounts for 61% of the installed power generation base and 75% of the generation capacity. An estimated 70.5 GW of coal based power is in the pipeline under various stages of construction. Bowing to international pressures, Conference of Partiesor COP 21 compliance requirements and India’s own initiative to go green, the Indian Ministry of Environment & Forests (MOE&F) announced stringent emission standards to regulate Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), Sulfur Dioxide(SO2), and Particulate Matter emissions.These emission norms announced in December2015, are stringent by any yardstick and comparable with standards in most Western countries. For example: NOx emission targets will range from 600 mg/Nm3 to as low as 100 mg/Nm3 and will vary depending on the commissioning date and size of the plant. Such targets will have to be achieved in a fairly short period of time and call for some of the best available control technologies (BACT) to be installed at Indian Power Plants.
