Imported Coal

Imported Coal

Coal remains the single largest source of the world’s electricity supply and likely to remain so for atleast another decade - to meet the ever increasing energy demands of Homes, Commercial Estabishments and Industries.

Unlike other Fossil Fuels - Coal only needs to be mined before it can be used. Other Fossil Fuels must be refined, using lengthy and costly processes. Coal is easier and safer to transport, store and handle than alternate highly flammable fossil fuels like oil & gas or nuclear materials.

Coal is also significantly cheaper, more accessible than other fossil fuels and its reserves are distributed much more equally around the planet. India too has vast reserves of coal. However the mining by state owned Coal India Ltd. (CIL) falls short of the demand. India imports nearly 170 million MT coal annually
