KSB promotes FGD systems to reduce emissions

23 March 2020

KSB manufacturers of pumps and industrial valves has reiterated its support towards the government’s efforts in reducing sulphur content in the flue gas emission by 30-35% from 2005 level by 2030. This is agreed at COP 21 Summit (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) in Paris. As part of the commitment, KSB has localized slurry recirculation pumps required for Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) applications. The company has recently won total order worth Rs 100 crores for the supply of slurry recirculation pumps in FGD plants to be installed across ten National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) sites in India. FGD systems will be installed in power plants having a total generation capacity of 166 GW in the coming years. 

Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) process is aimed at reducing the SO2 (Sulphur dioxide) emission in the flue/stack gases from thermal power plants into the atmosphere. FGD plants are comparatively new to India and KSB Limited has continued its tradition of indigenizing highly specialized products by adding the Slurry Recirculation Pumps required for FGD plants in its portfolio for local manufacturing. Gigantic in size, these pumps handle the critical slurry application in FGD plant and have a special lining for high wear life for more running hours. KSB has bagged several orders in these types of plants and has localized special lining technology.
