New energy transition platform Jakson Green on Wednesday said it has bagged an order from state-owned NTPC for setting up a plant to produce 4G ethanol from flue gas.

The proposed plant at Lara in Chhattisgarh will produce 10 tonnes per day (TPD) of 4G ethanol from flue gases emitted from power plants, a company statement said.

Using the latest carbon capture technology by Veolia Carbon Clean, the plant will capture 25 TPD CO2 from flue gases, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions, it said.

Also, 3 tonnes per day of green hydrogen will be generated through 7.5 MW electrolyser, the statement said.

Towards Sustainability

Also, 3 tonnes per day of green hydrogen will be generated through 7.5 MW electrolyser, the statement said.

Captured carbon dioxide (CO2) and generated hydrogen (H2) are combined via advanced microbial fermentation technology from LanzaTech Inc., converting these inputs into 4G ethanol, it explained.

According to the statement, Jakson Green has been awarded a critical role in India's groundbreaking project towards a greener future, establishing the world's first flue gas CO2-to-4G ethanol project for a power plant.

As the licensing, engineering, procurement, and construction (LEPC) partner, Jakson Green will spearhead this project which is expected to begin operations within two years.

The plant has been conceptualized and designed by NETRA (NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance), the research and development arm of NTPC Ltd.
