Revival of the urea
unit of the Talcher FCI Fertilizers Plant would fulfill the emerging large

Jena on Monday. Inaugurating the Site Office for revival of the plant
as a joint venture of the Rashtriya Chemicals & Fertilisers Ltd, the Coal India
Ltd and the Fertilizer Corporation of India, Hon'ble Minister said the revives
unit would bring prosperity in the region and create employment opportunities in
the State. He said that with the coal gasification technology, the revived unit
would annually produce 12.7 lakh tonnes of urea, 2.8 lakh tonnes of nitric acid
and 3.3 lakh tonnes of ammonium nitrate. He also informed that bids have already
been invited for construction of the coal gas unit while bids would soon be
invited for construction of the ammonia-urea units and ammonium nitrate unit. He

under consideration of the Union Government to encourage investment in the urea

cost of natural gas. Among others, the meeting was also attended by Hon'ble

kms track will be taken up. In second phase Branch Line corridor connecting

proposed corridor will link more than 10 coal blocks including Baitarani
