An elevated cross taxiway that will help cut taxiing time and save fuel at Delhi’s IGI airport will be ready by December 2022, an airport operator said. Describing it as India’s first ever elevated taxiway; the Delhi International Airport Limited said 60% work on the facility has been completed. Once the new corridor is commissioned, the taxiing distance for aircrafts at Delhi airport will go down from the current 9 km to 2 km as the facility will allow planes to go straight towards Terminal 1 from the runway or vice-versa instead of going around runway 11/29.

“This will translate into a reduction of nearly 1,114 kg of CO2 emissions for each aircraft taxiing along this route. Annually, the ECT is estimated to reduce emission of approximately 55,000 tonnes of CO2,” added DIAL.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy announced that the total installed renewable energy capacity in India, excluding large hydropower, has crossed the milestone of 100 GW or 100,000 MW, which accounts for about 26% of the total capacity.

Ajay Mathur, Director of the International Solar Alliance said, “You see India has gone from 10 GW to 100 GW in just 15 years since 2005. It highlights the success achieved by simultaneously strengthening the availability of both equity and credit of human and organizational capacity in the solar, financial and financial sector. To continually change business models in the light of policy areas, and advances in solar technologies, investments and markets.”

Climate Trends Director Aarti Khosla said, “This will not only reduce emissions but will also bring cost savings and cleaner air. At a time when we are shining the world over for the spectacular achievement in renewable sector, we should focus on efficiency and emission reduction from coal, and make the need for thermal sector transformation to bring overall benefits to India’s power sector.”

Vibhuti Garg, an energy economist at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), said, “The feat of 100 GW of renewable energy is a testimony to India’s desire to adopt sustainable energy choices. However, the road ahead needs further acceleration of these targets to help India decarbonise its energy sector. This can be achieved through advancement in technology and finance across the value chain and also providing a stable and conducive policy environment.”

BHEL issued an official statement that it has successfully demonstrated a facility to create methanol from high ash Indian coal. “With four years of hard work BHEL successfully demonstrated a facility to create 0.25 TPD methanol from high ash Indian coal using a 1.2 TPD Fluidized bed gasifier.
The methanol purity of the crude methanol produced is between 98 and 99.5% the statement said.

NITI Aayog member V. K. Saraswat said, “This endeavor led to the formation of in-house design expertise in BHEL for designing greater capacity coal gasification facilities, which will provide necessary impetus to our Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Aatma Nirbhar Bharat.’ This in-house capability will assist India’s Coal Gasification Mission and Coal to Hydrogen Production for Hydrogen Mission.”
