Experts say that the prospect of coal to olefins in China is bright

although the Chinese government's attitude towards coal chemical industry is still unclear, with the completion of three coal to olefin projects in China in the past two years, the industry is becoming optimistic about the prospect of the field of joint plate shaking caused by more experiments

on the afternoon of November 15, after signing the global strategic cooperation agreement with the China Chemical Information Center, rogerlee, the executive director of UK tycoon, delivered a speech immediately, saying that the "future" of methanol to olefins based on coal chemical industry in China is bright

tycoon is the most famous chemical information company in Europe and one of the first consulting companies in the world to focus on the chemical industry

Rogge Li said that in recent years, with the rising international price of oil and gas, it is becoming more and more economical to use coal as raw material to manufacture chemical products

another important factor is that in China, the coal origin is usually located in remote areas, and the cost of transporting coal from these areas is high. If [China Plastics News] converts these coal into methanol first and then transports it on October 1, the cost will be lower

the first step of using coal as raw material to produce chemical products is usually to convert it into syngas, which can be converted into ammonia or methanol. Ammonia is used to produce chemical fertilizers, while methanol can be used as raw materials for other chemical products, including olefins

China is ushering in excess refining capacity. At present, methanol production has been in excess, but ethylene and propylene products, as the "mother of petrochemical industry", are still in shortage in China. How to use coal to produce ethylene and other olefins is one of the possible industrial directions in China in the future

it is worth noting that Zhang Guobao, director of the national energy administration, said at the China International Coal Development Forum at the end of last month that as the direction of clean utilization of coal, the application of coal chemical industry will definitely increase in the future. He mentioned at that time, "especially coal to olefins, I am optimistic."

Wu Yin, deputy director of the national energy administration, also said in public that from the perspective of various primary energy sources, renewable energy sources such as hydropower, nuclear energy and wind energy can certainly solve the source problem of "electricity", an important secondary energy product, but a large number of secondary energy products such as "liquid fuels" and "chemical products" can still be provided only by traditional fossil energy sources such as coal, oil and natural gas

"in the future, we need to vigorously develop renewable energy, let it undertake greater power generation, and use more traditional fossil energy for the production of liquid fuels and chemical products that renewable energy 'cannot do'." Wu Yin said at that time

however, in terms of industrial policy, in 2008, the national development and Reform Commission issued a severely worded notice calling for the suspension of all coal chemical projects under construction and planned to be built, leaving only a few pilot projects. So far, there is no looseness

however, with the completion of Shenhua Baotou methanol to olefin, Shenhua Ningdong methanol to propylene and Datang Duolun methanol to propylene demonstration projects, and several coal to natural gas projects have been approved by the national development and Reform Commission, coal based chemical industry is gradually receiving attention from the industry

Fu Xu, director of the China Chemical Information Center, believes that the Chinese government currently allows a few coal chemical projects to pilot first, which is precisely intended to find the technical possibility of coal chemical industry through the pilot project. If coal chemical technology is proved to be safe, reliable and environmentally friendly, it is likely to be released to the whole society

while Rogge Li is very optimistic about the prospect of coal to olefins in China, "in the field of using coal as a chemical raw material, China is not on a unique development path."

he further believes that with the success of coal to olefins in China, it is likely to set off a global chemical industry trend that should not be blindly viewed and "followed". "This will not only involve countries with rich coal reserves, such as Australia, Indonesia and India, but also countries with rich natural gas resources, such as the industrial energy conservation and comprehensive utilization system, which should thoroughly implement the spirit of the 109th CPC National Congress." Rogli said
