To develop and install carbon dioxide sequestration or scavenging technologies near the Thar coal, Kandra gas fields and other power generation stations with reduced risk of un-capture carbon and carbon dioxide, to make safe use of coal deposits for production of energy, in order to cope the prevailing situation of energy crisis in the country.
It is expected that with the implementation of the NAMA, the following objectives could be achieved:
- Development of technology for carbon dioxide scavenging.
- Assessment of environmental impact of the Thar Coal project.
- Designing and installation pilot plant of CO2 sequestration near Thar coal, Kandra gas fields and other power generation stations.
- Establishment CO2 Sequestration Laboratory in Pakistan
- Reduction/ mitigation the GHGs concentration from atmosphere by ensuring implementation of NAMAs with the assistance of Ministry of Climate Change.
In order to undertake this project a Project Management Unit (PMU) will be established and empowered within PCST. The PMU will coordinate all the activities. The PMU will be responsible for successful accomplishment of the NAMA. The PMU will coordinate with National University of Sciences and Technology (Islamabad), Karachi University (Karachi) and other technical organizations on the subject technology. In this regard, PMU will also coordinate and work with Climate Change Division for execution of project. After successful trials plant would be constructed with the help of national engineering firms. Technical Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of proposed NAMA will be carried by the Ministry of Science and Technology Pakistan. The scope of the NAMA is to accelerate the energy production utilizing coal deposits with minimum GHGs emission risk.
Output 1: Development of CO2 Sequestration technology Output 2: Establishment of CO2 Sequestration Laboratory Output 3: Installation of developed technology Output 4: (Development of) Strategies for CO2 mitigation
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available
The main objective of the project is to reduce the un-capture carbon & CO2 concentration from the atmosphere while allowing the fossil fuel to use as energy for power generation.
|The Technical and human resource capacity will be strengthened due to this proposed project.
|The long term economy wide benefit of this proposed NAMA include increased share in export, corresponding to increase of the GDP. The realization of the safe energy production potential in the economy will result in decrease in the energy gap. This will improve the country’s economy ultimately which will lead to social and economic benefits and improved economic conditions.
|The Environmental benefits include clean and safe utilization of coal for generation of power to meet the demands of the country. It would ultimately help Pakistan in meeting its international climate change responsibilities. Sustainable benefits include creation of new jobs and new economic opportunity (Green Growth). Further benefits will include health benefits through improved air with reduced concentration of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere, lifestyle benefits through the use of environmental services
