Our country has approx. ~150 Billion tons of proven high-ash low rank coal resources for utilization to the extent possible for achieving Energy Security.
Coal Gasification based DRI is an option to be pursued to reach 300 MTPA Steel production by 2030. Coal is not a problem, problem is CO2 emissions.
Scale, Coal consistency, dedicated Coal mines and integrating with Carbon Capture will ensure benefits from Coal Gasification based CLEAN Ecosystem for Steel/ Chemicals/ Power Production.
