Flue Gas based Seawater Desalination pilot plant is an innovative, low-carbon intensive desalination system. This plant is first of its kind in India. In this facility, the waste heat from exiting flue gas in a fossil fired power plant is utilized for distillation of sea water instead of steam or electricity as used in conventional desalination system. This is a proof of concept facility. Once various elements of this technology are proofed and efficacy of the plant is established, this system can be replicated with or withouth scale up in other power stations.
