About us:The Fuel Policy Committee of Govt. of India in its report in 1974 recommended the setting up of a number of Low Temperature Carbonization 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 Carbonization Plant at Dankuni was set up.
