Business Standard. Sasol Synfuel, which has entered into a joint venture with Tata Steel to build a US$10-billion, 80,000 barrel per day coal-to-liquids (CTL) plant in the Indian state of Orissa (earlier post), expects the venture to be operational by 2018.
The project is India’s first major CTL project.
“In this joint venture, which is in development phase, we are looking at converting coal to liquid fuel, like diesel and other fuels,” Sasol Synfuel International’s Country President Mark Schnell told reporters on the sidelines of a seminar here today.
...“This will be strategic and good for India as there is an increase in the number of vehicles leading to rise in demand for liquid fuel,’ Schnell said. In the JV, Sasol is playing the role of technology provider, co-developer and co-investor, he said.
