Jakson Green to build CO2-to-methanol plant in partnership with NTPC


Jakson Green, a renewable and new energy player in India, announced today that it has won a project from National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) to establish a CO2-to-methanol production facility at NTPC’s Vindhyachal thermal power plant in Madhya Pradesh.

Methanol (CH3OH) is a cleaner alternative fuel that can be used for various purposes, including power generation and transportation. The methanol synthesis plant at NTPC’s Vindhyachal thermal power plant will convert 20 tonnes-per-day (tpd) of CO2 to 10 tpd methanol through a catalytic hydrogenation process, utilizing 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 their Japanese technology provider for the methanol synthesis process. 

Bikesh Ogra, CEO and managing director of Jakson Green, said, “Methanol production is a key element in India’s transition to a low-carbon economy, and we are proud to be at the forefront of the movement. We are thankful to NTPC for giving us an opportunity to partner with them in developing this useful hydrocarbon and propagating its widespread use for a cleaner and greener world. We are confident that this methanol synthesis plant built in association with NTPC will strengthen India’s vision of becoming a methanol economy, which will, in turn, reduce India’s dependence on crude oil imports and mitigate the pollution.”
