The Fuel Policy Committee of Govt. of India in its report in 1974 recommended the setting up of a number of Low Temperature Carbonisation Plant in India for replacement of petroleum based fuel oil in the wake of sudden rise in petroleum prices during the middle of 1970’s. In pursuance of this decision, Govt. of India decided that such a Plant would be operated by Coal India Ltd. accordingly a Carbonisation Plant at Dankuni was set up.

The Prime Objectives of this project is to produce

  • About 1000 MT per day of solid Smokeless Fuel, branded as CILCOKE and cokefines.
  • About 18 million cft of Coal gas per day for supply in and around Calcutta and Howrah.
  • About 60 to 70 tonnes of Tar Chemicals per day.
  • Both solid and gaseous fuels, being very clean in nature, would subsequently contribute to the reduction of pollution level of Calcutta and Howrah.

Dankuni Coal Complex Plant has been leased out by Coal India Ltd. to SECL .
