CCUS and biofuels (including CBG) are essential components of India's future green energy mix, as illustrated in the Government's 2018 Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transport (SATAT) scheme.
FREMONT, CA: Carbon Clean, a pioneer in low-cost carbon capture and separation technology, announced that it has joined forces with Veolia, a global leader in optimized resource management, to build multiple green projects exclusively in India. The newly formed company Veolia Carbon Clean will first develop two carbon capture and storage (CCUS), and compressed biogas (CBG) projects in India using the proprietary Carbon Cleans CDRMax and MethPure technologies.
Veolia Carbon Clean will finance, plan, develop, and run these projects and find other projects in the region. "This partnership is a great opportunity to illustrate Veolia’s commitment towards combating climate change in India by deploying solutions to mitigate CO2 emissions. Through Veolia Carbon Clean we look forward to creating resilient projects which will help companies to lower their carbon emissions in a sustainable manner and thus contribute towards reducing pollution levels in the country." Guillaume Dourdin, CEO, Veolia India.
CCUS and biofuels (including CBG) are essential components of India's future green energy mix, as illustrated in the Government's 2018 Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transport (SATAT) scheme. SATAT plans to generate 15 million tons of CBG from 5,000 plants by 2023, along with the development of 50 million tons of organic manure. By increasing biofuels' domestic production, the scheme aims to help India minimize imports, build jobs, and reduce pollution. The alliance between Veolia and Carbon Clean is an essential step in the right direction.
"Were delighted that Veolia Carbon Clean is supporting the SATAT initiative to encourage compressed biogas for green transport fuel and were proud to be investing in manufacturing in India," said Aniruddha Sharma, CEO, Carbon Clean. "I have always believed in Make in India and it's an initiative by the Government of India to be celebrated. Veolia’s ambition to become the world champion in ecological transformation, combined with our technological expertise, will allow us to fast-track multiple green projects in India," he adds.
