our customers with products that is consistent and of the highest quality.


Coal Upgrading

We are currently working closely with PT Total Sinergy International (TSI), an Indonesian Technology Company, on a coal upgrading project that improves the overall

quality of SEM’s coal significantly. Our continuous commitment in upgrading our coal has contributed to the discovery of Geo-Coal technology, patented and

conceived by TSI. Their technology upgrades SEM’s low CV coal to a high CV clean burning coal, it reduces moisture significantly and allows our coal to retain its

environmental properties. A bulk testing plant on this breakthrough technology has been completed and successful tests on SEM’s coal have been carried out on a

continuous basis.

Geo-CoalTechnology is able to:

  1. reduce the free and inherent moisture levels in the coal,
  2. increase the calorific value of the coal,
  3. improve on the HGI and handling property of the coal,
  4. retain the coal’s environmental properties
  5. substantially reduce/eliminate the coal’s propensity to ingress/re-absorb moisture


Agritrade Resources will embark with TSI to build the first ever Geo-CoalTechnology coal upgrading commercial plant at SEM. This plant will have an output capacity of 1 million tons of upgraded coal per annum. Essentially, this technology will improve our operation by:

  1. Increasing the overall energy quality and commercial value of our coal
  2. Reducing the total moisture of our coal increases operating efficiency by sharply lowering transportation and logistic costs
  3. Maximizing our mine's reserves and value due to the higher selling price of SEM's upgraded coal with minimum impact on the cost of production.
