IRPC today signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with GE and GCPL to seek project approval from the board that oversees the CDM program. If approved, IRPC would become the first company in the world to receive certified emissions reduction credits (CERs) for reducing emissions after converting to new energy technology that uses cleaner-burning natural gas. IRPC plans to replace the petrochemical complex’s older, less-efficient fuel oil power plant with a new, 200-MW, natural gas-fueled cogeneration plant. The project is planned to help improve the facility’s energy efficiency, reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and reduce air emissions in this industrial area. The proposed cogeneration plant would be powered by six Frame 6B gas turbines supplied by GE Oil & Gas and would provide a cleaner source of…
