The World Coal Association (WCA) and the Coal Preparation Society of India (CPSI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). It was signed by RK Sachdev, President of CPSI and Mick Buffier, President of WCA, during Buffier’s visit in New Delhi, India.
The CPSI is a non-government and non-profit body of coal washing, coal mining and allied industries dedicatedly promoting beneficiation of high ash Indian coal in order to make it clean and environmentally acceptable energy resource.
The WCA indicated it pays close attention to the large coal industry in India, rapid growth in coal production and consumption and the important role coal is playing in India’s economic development.
In recognition of India’s growing importance in the global coal industry and in the related debates about energy security, economic and social development and climate change, the WCA released a report in late 2015 "The Case for Coal: India's Energy Trilemma" looking at the increasing coal demand and the significant potential offered by high-efficiency low-emission coal technologies in reducing CO2 emissions.
