Coal India to Replace Diesel

Copyright © 2021 Energy Intelligence Group

India’s state-owned miner Coal India is seeking to replace diesel with LNG in its dump trucks, used to transport coal from mines, to reduce its carbon footprint. The giant coal miner uses over 400 million liters of diesel per year, about three-fourths of which is consumed by its dump truck fleet, at a cost of 35 billion rupees ($480 million). India seeks to mirror China by using LNG in long-haul trucks and mining equipment to cut carbon footprints and boost the use of gas in the energy mix. Based on the outcome of the pilot project, Coal India will decide on bulk use of LNG in heavy earth moving machines.
