Coal-based olefins in China


Coal-based olefins in China

Report summary

Chemical production based on syngas from coal gasification is well established in China, resulting in large volumes of domestic methanol and ammonia supply that have had considerable commercial implications in terms of trade and market balances. Methanol to olefins (MTO) is a recently commercialized technology that has effectively opened up a new branch of coal chemistry; one that impacts the petrochemical industry.
