Syngas Power in China

Syngas Commercialisation Project In Chongqing, China

Why Syngas in China

  1. Power demand forecast to rapidly increase
    • Cleaner power demand
  2. 70% of current power from pulverised coal
    • Responsible for 60% of air pollution
    • Responsible to 60% of city haze, increasingly unacceptable
  3. Extensive coal resources suitable for gasification
  4. Coal-fuelled power station & coal mines within close proximity and under same ownership
  5. Recent Chinese Central Government edict – “There will be no new coal mines!”
    • Substantial clean electricity price surcharge
    • What is replacing coal? – nuclear, LNG, gas from Russia, ISG syngas?
