Policy shift creating a favorable ecosystem
for gasification projects

Our Vision

The sole vision for us is to make gasification a commercial success for India. The gasification technology is a net-negative emissions technology that aligns with India’s commitment towards NDC, a climate action plan. Gasification produces syngas, which is converted to produce clean and economically attractive chemical feedstock. Along with low-cost carbon capture, it can cost-effectively decarbonize the industrial, power, fertilizer, and chemical sectors.
