By Jack Burke29 June 2018
India’s Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) said it has entered into an agreement with NANO Co. Ltd., of the Republic of Korea for the design and manufacture of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalysts in coal-fired power plants, to be commissioned or retrofitted with high capacity emission control equipment.
To comply with the norms of SOx and NOx emission, issued by India’s Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) for thermal power plants, BHEL said it is geared up to provide complete, state-of-the-art solutions by offering suitable flue gas clean-up and emission control systems.
This agreement will enable BHEL to enhance its offerings for emission control systems (De-NOx applications) and covers state-of-the-art technology for designing, engineering and manufacturing of SCR catalysts. Following this, BHEL will be the first Indian company to possess technology and manufacturing capabilities for plate-type SCR catalysts as part of the ‘Make in India’ initiative. NANO Co. Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of SCR catalysts and associated raw materials and has supplied SCR catalysts to various countries including Germany, France, Italy, China and Taiwan.
