Coal Research & Resource Center

The “Coal Research & Resource Center” was established at Mehran University of Engineering & Technology in 2014. There was an urgent need to establish the center in the province of Sindh in specific and Pakistan in general to support the emerging “Coal Industry”, where they can access the Lab. facilities to facilitate their businesses to support the government policies to exploit the indigenous coal resources. In addition, integrated research faculties was also not available under one umbrella, where researchers from mining, chemical, mechanical, electrical, environmental & other allied disciplines of engineering & sciences work together on the coal resources & utilization for  the economic development of  Pakistan.

The center housed state of art research facilities to facilitate the PhD research students in the area of coal mining, modeling & simulation; coal processing & preparation; clean coal &  coal conversion technologies, process modeling and simulation; Coal based power plants; emission analysis & control technologies.
