Jakson Green to set up methanol synthesis facility at NTPC’s Vindhyachal power plant

Jakson Green has secured an order to set up a methanol synthesis facility at the NTPC Limited’s Vindhyachal thermal power plant (VTPP) in Madhya Pradesh.

The said methanol synthesis facility will have a capacity of 10 tonnes per day (TPD). The methanol production unit will convert 20 TPD CO2 to 10 TPD methanol through a catalytic hydrogenation process, utilising CO2 from thermal plant flue gas through a carbon capture unit and green hydrogen produced by electrolysis. Jakson Green will oversee the entire design, engineering, procurement, and construction of this project on a turnkey basis, in partnership with NTPC and a Japanese technology provider for the methanol synthesis process.
