State-owned NTPC will set up a 100-MW green power plant based on synthesis gas (coal turned into gas) and would appoint consultants for the same by the end of this year.

The plant will be based on Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), which creates less pollution and has higher efficiency compared to conventional coal.

The project is part of NTPC’s cleaner coal drive. The technology turns coal into syngas (or synthesis gas)and removes impurities from it before it is combusted.
