Corona Hits Talcher Plant

While Union Government is pursuing Talcher Fertilizer Limited (TFL) Project vigorously, Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19) Pandemic has posing challenges in this regard.

Union Minister, Chemicals and Fertilizers, Mansukh Mandaviya held a review meeting with officers of Department of Fertilizers on the progress of revival of Five Fertilizers plants through video conference on 12 June .
TFL is one among these ambitious projects, which will come up in Odisha and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid Foundation Stone of the project in December, 2018.
He was also informed that the  currently Pre-project activities are in progress in the Talcher Fertilizer Plants in Odisha.
Minister was also told that these projects are being pursued vigorously despite challenges posed by Covid-19 causing some delays.
Talcher plant being the first fertilizer plant in India to use coal-gasification technology, it will provide a template for using gas produced from coal, which is likely to be adopted by refineries and power plants to lower their emissions.
 
Talcher Fertilizers Ltd is a joint venture between state run GAIL (India) Ltd, Rashtriya Chemicals & Fertilizers Limited (RCF) and Coal India Ltd (CIL). Once commissioned, it will produce 1.26 million metric ton per annum of neem coated urea.
While GAIL, RCF and CIL hold 29.67% each, Fertilizer Corporation of India Ltd (FCIL) has a 10.99% stake in the Rs13,000 crore Talcher project.
 
The project is expected to provide direct and indirect employment to 4,500 people.
 
The Talcher project will reduce dependence on urea and gas imports, Mr.Mandaviya said.
 
TFL will promote alternative use of domestic coal in an environment friendly manner, thereby supporting India’s commitments under the CoP 21 Paris Agreement 2016.
 
It will produce 2.38 million metric standard cubic meter per day (MMSCMD) natural gas equivalent syngas from coal, leading to reduction in import bill of liquefied natural gas (LNG) by more than ? 1,620 crore per annum, said an official.
 
Minister reviewed other projects, which include Hindustan Urvarak Rasayan Limited (HURL) : Gorakhpur, Barauni and Sindri); Ramagundam Fertilizers and Chemicals Limited (RFCL).
Senior officers from TFL, HURL, and RFCL looking after revival of these 5 fertilizers plants attended the meeting.
 While reviewing the physical and financial progress of all the above fertilizer plants, Mr.Mandaviya directed that the concerned authority may  take all possible step for early completion of the projects.
