Peabody Energy honored top clean coal projects in China, India and Wyoming at the POWER-GEN International keynote Wednesday in Orlando.
The largest pure-play, private-sector coal company in the world, Peabody continued its fifth annual Clean Coal Leadership Awards. These honored efforts in innovation for advance coal technologies. The winners are as follows:
High-Efficiency Low-Emissions Leadership and Innovation
Huaibei Shenergy Power Generation Co., Ltd: The 1,350-megawatt ultra-supercritical coal-fueled generation unit is currently under construction in China with commission targeted for 2020, and is expected to be among the most efficient coal-fueled generating plants in the world.
High-Efficiency and Sustainability Leadership and Innovation
Nabha Power Limited: The 1,400-megawatt powerplant in Rajpura, Punjab achieved the best heat rate and auxiliary power consumption in India’s 660-MW class for FY 2017 – 2018 and has 100 percent dry fly ash utilization and zero liquid discharge.
Carbon Capture and Storage Pioneer
Wyoming Integrated Test Center: The test center is one of the few research and testing facilities at an operating coal-fueled generating plant and offers space for researchers to test CCUS technologies using 20 MW of coal-based flue gas. Additional research looks at taking carbon emissions from flue gas and turning it into a marketable commodity.
POWER-GEN International is a content and exhibition conference for more than 800 companies in the power generation sector. These include renewables, microgrids, gas and steam turbines, emissions control, plant performance, energy storage, engineering, construction, cybersecurity, nuclear and on-site power.
