Kolkata, Sep 25 (IANS) The Budge Budge generating station of Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation (CESC) has become the world's first coal-fired thermal power station to be registered with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for environment friendly work.

CESC director (Generation) Pradip Basu Monday said the work had been acclaimed as a successful project under the clean development mechanism of Kyoto Protocol for reduction of the harmful green house gases.

Budge Budge generation station has achieved the distinction by adapting a special chemical process that stood out to be 'extraordinary' for its class in cutting down carbon emission, he said.

The UNFCCC, of which India is a signatory, sets out a framework for action aimed at stabilising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases in order to avoid dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.

Controlled gases include methane, nitrous oxide and, in particular, carbon dioxide. The UNFCCC entered into force in March 1994, and now has 189 parties.

The Kyoto Protocol, which commits developed countries and countries with economic transition to achieve quantified emissions reduction targets, was adopted in December 1997.

'At Budge Budge power station we are pursuing a path of excellence in production, coupled with such protection to the environment which locally is considerably better than the statutory requirements and is globally recognised to be contributing to thwart global warming,' Basu said.

He said that CESC was working on two other projects to get them registered with UNFCCC for anti-emission mechanism.
