China Coal Chemical Industry Analysis 2012
Comprehensive coverage of the rapidly growing China coal chemical market, providing chemical professionals with a clear and concise analysis of the technology, economics and supply and demand for the entire Chinese industry.
A new wave of coal-based chemical development has ushered in a new era of chemical production that has impacted not only the domestic Chinese market but also the global chemical industry.More
China has the world’s second-largest coal reserves and is the world’s largest consumer and producer of coal. At present, China’s demand for coal is driven primarily by the growth in its electrical power sector. However, persistent high crude oil prices and recent technological breakthroughs have focused China’s attention on utilizing its domestic coal reserves for chemical production. Many coal chemical projects have been built or are currently under construction. Even before the recent coal chemical fervor, China had a long history of using coal as a chemical feedstock. For example, over 80% of current methanol and PVC capacity in China is coal-based. The most recent coal chemical developments are mainly around coal-to-olefins, coal-to-MEG and coal-to-ethanol.Less
With its decades-long presence in China, IHS Chemical has developed a deep understanding of China’s coal chemical industry. In conjunction with the IHS CERA China coal study, Coal Rush: The Future of China’s Coal Markets, IHS Chemical has developed this comprehensive China Coal Chemical Study.
