Kishore Nagar Coal-to-Liquids Project
Kishore Nagar Coal-to-Liquids Project is a proposed coal-to-liquids project that includes a 1,350-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Odisha, India.

The project is being investigated by Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL). It would be based on coal from the Ramchandi block. Waste coal from the washery (80,000 barrels per day) is proposed to be used as fuel for a 1,350 MW power station associated with the project.
As of August 2014, given the lack of progress toward receiving further environmental permits, it appears that the project has been put on hold or abandoned.
