The facility, now under construction, is located on-site at the PWTU coal-fired power plant on the island of Kalimantan, Indonesia and is designed to upgrade the calorific value of approximately 190,000 tonnes per year of low-rank coal (approximately 8,000 Btu/lb.) to a higher calorific coal (approximately 9,000 Btu/lb.) by removing up to 10% of the total moisture. MicroCoal(r) has concluded that its technology can substantially increase the calorific content of this specific low-rank Indonesian coal above 11,000 Btu/lb. by further reducing the moisture content.
