Abstract

From a technological perspective, coal liquefactiontechnology holds promise to
provide synthetic liquid fuels as a substitute for conventional liquid fuels. The
Indirect Coal to Liquid (CTL) approach using Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology
developed by SASOL has been commercially implemented in South Africa. On
the other hand, the Direct CTL approach developed by Brown Coal Liquefaction
(BCL) of Japan has not matured into a commercially proven technology. Applying
coal liquefaction technology using low rank coal inIndonesia will be a strategic
effort to reduce dependence on conventional fuels. It is projected that domestic
fuels consumption in the future will be met mostly by imported fuels. The main
constraints in applying coal liquefaction technology are due to the high
investment costs, the sensitivity of fuels from CTLtechnology to oil price which
affects their market competition, and assurance of coal supply and requirement
for processing synthetic fuels product from the CTLplant into final products. This
paper describes the policy measures to support implementing CTL technology in
Indonesia..
