4-Day Residential Training Programme on Reducing Environmental Footprint of Coal Power Plants



COURSE DURATION: December 14 - 17, 2021
VENUE – CSE’s Anil Agarwal Environmental Training Institute (AAETI), Tijara, Rajasthan (about 100 km from Delhi). 
TIME: 09:30 am to 05:30 pm
LAST DATE TO APPLY: November 30, 2021


Coal based power plants in India are resource intensive with high energy and water consumption and corresponding high pollution potential. They are responsible for a significant share of total emissions from industrial sectors in India. Power plants significantly contribute to overall greenhouse gas emissions and are also extremely water intensive and generate huge amounts of fly ash. With the 2015 environmental norms notified by the MoEF&CC, thermal power stations are required to install and upgrade emission control technologies and also reduce its specific water consumption in order to meet compliance. All stakeholders involved in the implementation process face multiple challenges in terms of installing or upgrading emission control technologies and ensuring its continued operation and maintenance. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, water conservation, effective wastewater management and fly ash utilization are yet another concerns for the sector. Improving industrial energy and water use efficiency and reducing its overall environmental footprint is therefore critical for sustainability of this sector and can lead to substantial energy, fuel and water savings, improved productivity leading to reduced carbon and water footprint.

Understanding the relevance of the subject, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has developed a funded 4-Day residential training programme at its training campus Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI), Neemli, Alwar  with the aim of providing a wider understanding on the various aspects surrounding the implementation, operation and maintenance of emission control technologies, water audits, wastewater management, recycling and zero discharge practices, efficient ways of ash handling & utilization and its market and Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS) installation and data interpretation.

Participants will be awarded with a “certificate of completion” on successful completion of the programme.


Power plant officials, Pollution control board officials, Environmental regulators, Electricity regulatory commission officials, etc.

NO COURSE FEE: The training course is non-chargeable. CSE will bear the following expenses of short-listed candidates: training cost, boarding and lodging for five nights (from 13th – 17th December, 2021) at AAETI, Alwar including transportation of the participants (from CSE, Delhi to AAETI, Alwar and back).
