Quezon Power (Philippines) Limited Company (QPL) has partnered with South Korea-based Doosan Enerbility Company Limited to develop ammonia co-firing at a coal power plant in Quezon. The partners will conduct feasibility studies on using the technology at EGCO Group’s Quezon power plant to offset carbon emissions at the facility.

Ammonia co-firing can be used alongside other alternative energy technologies including renewables, energy storage and carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS).

This move is in line with EGCO’s mid-term goal of reducing emissions from its power plants by 10 per cent before 2030.
