Government of India to set up two Centre for excellence in Carbon capture facility in India
Tags: National News
The Government of India is setting up two National Centres of Excellence in Carbon Capture and Utilisation for long-term research, design development, collaborative and capacity-building hubs for state-of-the-art research and application-oriented initiatives in the field of Carbon capture.
The two centre s are:
National Centre of Excellence in Carbon Capture and Utilisation (NCoE-CCU) at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay,
National Centre in Carbon Capture and Utilisation (NCCCU) at Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bengaluru
Carbon Capture and Storage and Utilisation
Carbon Capture and Storage is the process of capturing the carbon dioxide which is released due to industrial activities/power generation using fossil fuels, before it is released in the atmosphere .
The captured carbon- dioxide can be used to make commercially marketable products . This is called Capture Capture Storage and Utilisation (CCSU). Normally it is used in enhanced oil extraction where carbon dioxide is injected in oil fields to increase their extraction efficiency.
The first large-scale CCSU project began operating at Sleipner in Norway in 1996.
Important full form for EXAMS :
NCoE-CCU: National Centre of Excellence in Carbon Capture and Utilization
National Centre in Carbon Capture and Utilisation.
NCCCU: National Centre in Carbon Capture and Utilisation
CCSU.: Carbon Capture Storage and Utilisation
JNCASR: Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research
