India’s first plant to produce urea from coal, which will make the fertiliser cheaper for farmers, may be set up at Bhadravati, near Chandrapur. Urea is largely imported and the plant will reduce India’s dependence on imports. Urea which is made out of naphtha costs nearly Rs 40,000 a ton and the price can be halved if it is produced in India out of coal, which is in abundance in Vidarbha. Research says that a chemical similar to urea can be extracted out of fly ash also. This concept will also be exploited. Flyash is generated from coal burnt in power plants and is a major pollutant.
