COAL WASHERIES :-
Coal India is heading in a big way for Coal Beneficiation of all types of coals. The present installed capacity of washery in the country for thermal coal is about 103 Mt per annum and it is envisaged to reach about 263 Mt per annum in the next five [5] years time.
To meet the demand supply gap of washed coal, guidelines for setting up of coal washeries on Public Sector Coal Company’s land have been issued by Ministry of Coal in September’05. Accordingly, subsidiary coal companies of CIL are extending necessary assistance to facilitate setting up coal washeries by the linked consumers or by the prospective private washery operators/ investors on behalf of the linked consumers. At present the total capacity of non-coking coal washeries in operation in the country is about 109.67 Mt/annum, out of which about 90.95 Mt/annum is in private sector and 19.72 Mt/annum is with CIL. Some more non-coking coal washeries in the private sector are under construction.
A location-wise list of existing washeries of CIL is given below :-

PROPOSED WASHERIES OF CIL :-
Coal India Limited has planned to set up 20 nos. of coal washeries (Coking and Non-Coking) having total capacity of 111.1 Mt of raw coal throughput in the first phase. Out of the total capacity mentioned above, 105.1 Mt capacity of washery will come up under "Build, Operate & Maintain (BOM)" concept whereas 6.0 Mt capacity of washery will come up on turnkey basis with a view to supply washed metallurgical and washed thermal coal to steel sector and power stations other than those located at pit head. CIL would provide capital for construction of these washeries. Details of subsidiary wise, number of washeries to be set up & their capacities are listed below:

 Out of 18 number of washeries to be constructed under Build-Operate-Maintain (BOM), Global tenders have been floated for construction of following ten washeries  i.e  Sonepur Bazari, Madhuband, Patherdih, Dugda , Dahibari , Ashoka,  Basundhara,  Jagannath , Hingula and Kusmunda   washeries. Evaluation of   Madhuband, Patherdih and Ashoka washeries completed and   LOA have been issued to the selected bidders.  Evaluation of balance  7 washeries are in progress.    The reports  of remaining 8 washeries are under preparation.


Further, it has been decided that all new opencast projects of 2.5 Mt and above capacity, which are not linked to pithead power stations should be designed with integrated washery.Two dry deshaling plants based on Radiometric dry deshaling and All-mineral All-air Jig technology are also under implementation by CMPDI under CIL R&D grant.
