Adani Power Launches Pilot Project to Test Green Ammonia Combustion at Mundra Plant

Adani Power has initiated a pilot project at its Mundra plant to test green ammonia combustion, in an effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The project aims to co-fire up to 20 per cent green ammonia in the boiler of a conventional coal-fired 330 MW unit. This green ammonia is produced from green hydrogen, which is generated through electrolysis using renewable energy. As ammonia contains no carbon, its combustion emits no carbon dioxide, making it a long-term carbon-neutral alternative to fossil fuels.

The company has partnered with IHI and Kowa-Japan to carry out the pilot project and examine the potential expansion to other Adani Power units and stations. The combustion tests have begun in Japan with a 20 per cent ammonia blend, simulating Mundra Power Station equipment. The project has been conceived under the Japan-India Clean Energy Partnership (CEP).

Adani Total Gas, another entity of the Adani Group, has also announced a ‘Green Hydrogen Production and Blending Pilot Project’, aiming to blend green hydrogen with natural gas for residential and commercial customers at Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

Both initiatives align with India’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions and transitioning to cleaner energy sources, as outlined in the country’s “Panchamrit” pledge at COP26. India aims to achieve 500 GW of non-fossil electricity capacity, generate half of its energy from renewables, reduce emissions by 1 billion tonnes by 2030, and reach net-zero emissions by 2070.
