Coal constitutes nearly half of commercial primary energy demand and one third of total energy requirements of India. According to planning commission, the demand for coal is projected at 758 Million Tonnes (MT) in 2012. The demand supply gap is estimated at 51.10Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) for the year 2011-12 despite of the continual increment in production of coal with a CAGR of 7%. On the other hand, the coal produced in India is of inferior quality with less calorific value and high ash content.
In India, coking coal preparation has long been in operation but recently the trend has been shifted to beneficiation of non coking coal due to huge demand from power sector for environmental and efficiency concerns. Also, the long distance transportation of coal via land routes offers an ideal opportunity for coal washing in India. It not only helps preserve the environment but also offer substantial benefits to Indian economy.
The quality of Run of Mine (ROM) coal from Indian mines is continuously decreasing due to the geographical pattern of coal seams in coal bed. The quality deteriorates as excavation process goes deep inside the mine. This very nature of coal quality from coal seams demand coal washing, providing bullish market opportunity for national and international players to enter the lucrative washery segment of Indian coal sector.
CIL has been operating coking as well as non coking coal washeries for a long period of time but due to man power constraints and operational cost, it has decided to outsource coal washery operation to private players.CIL has earmarked a whopping Rs 5000 crores for coal washery development in 4 years of time with a targeted capacity of 250MTPA.Thus, it has planned for international competitive bidding to develop 22 number of coal washeries in different parts of India. 66 players have evinced their interest to develop coal washeries for the first phase of CIL’s bidding.
This report canvases the prospects of coal washery in India and investment opportunities around the sector. It critically analyses existing and upcoming coal washeries in India, briefs about the existing players’ profile. The report comprehensively covers the economic aspects of coal washeries, challenges and risks associated with it, financing of coal washeries and steps involved for setting up of a coal washery. It also focuses on existing as well as emerging technology in coal washing segment. The technology providers as well as the equipment manufacturers and associated industries will be getting a major boost due to this renewed interest in this segment of coal sector.
