Certificate Course on Improving Environmental performance of Coal-based thermal power stations

The coal-fired thermal power industry is considered one of the most polluting sector. Apart from emitting particulate matter, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, they are also responsible for spewing over a third of the country’s GHG emissionsinto the air. They use half of the country's drinking water, and produce one of the largest waste streams – fly ash. To control emissions from the sector in 2015, the government imposed strict pollution limits on the industry. The coal-based thermal power sector is now under pressure to reach the limits as soon as possible, sail through the water-scarcity risk, and reduce climate threats. Trained manpower is necessary to support this sector at the moment. 

To aide which CSE is offering a merit-based four day full-scholarship advanced training program: Improving environmental performance of coal-based thermal power stations. The residential training workshop will be organized at the Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI), Alwar, about 100 km from Delhi. The objective of the workshop is to update the participants about the new norms and their applicability, train them onpollution control,reduce climate change impacts, and familiarize them with best practices and operation and maintenance issues. 

The course highlights

  • Minimizing pollution - particulate matter control, sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen
  • Reducing GHG emissions and improving energy efficiency
  • Better fly ash management
  • Water management in thermal power stations - water audits, recycling techniques
  • Continuous emission monitoring system
  • Case studies from other companies, experience-sharing and discussion sessions
  • Site visit for exposure.
