India Has Developed An Indigenous Technology To Convert High Ash Coal To Methanol And Established Its First Pilot Plant By Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) In Hyderabad, An Official Statement Said On 17-09-2021.
 
"This technology will help the country move towards the adoption of clean technology and promote the use of methanol as a transportation fuel (blending with petrol), thus reducing crude oil imports," a Science and Technology Ministry statement said.
 
The broad process of converting coal into methanol consists of conversion of coal to synthesis (syngas) gas, its cleaning, conditioning, and conversion to methanol, and the methanol purification. Coal to methanol plants in most countries are operated with low ash coals. Handling of high ash and heat required to melt this high amount of ash is a challenge in the case of Indian coal, which generally has high ask content, the release said.
