Adani Power ties up with IHI, Kowa to study ammonia co-firing for power generation

Adani Power Limited (APL), IHI Corporation, and Kowa Company Limited, have signed a memorandum of understanding to study the feasibility on a modification to achieve 20 per cent liquid ammonia co-firing ratio and thereafter extend this to a ratio up to 100 per cent mono-firing at the Adani Power Mundra coal fired power plant.

Kowa supported APL by conducting a global survey of hydrogen and ammonia-related technologies being utilised for power generation. IHI Corporation has already successfully demonstrated its ammonia co-firing technology at a large-scale commercial coal-fired power plant in Japan. To achieve decarbonisation of APL’s coal-fired assets, the parties, by considering the possibility of ammonia co-firing through the studies, aim to decarbonise APL’s coal fired assets, with the objective to potentially implement the technology in other coal-fired units within India.These studies contribute to carbon neutrality in India in line with the India-Japan Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) announced by the Indian and Japanese governments on March 19, 2022.
