SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Datang International Power Generation will submit an environment impact study on its coal-to-olefins (CTO) project at Chifeng, Inner Mongolia province, to the Chinese government in September, a company source said on Wednesday.
The company has earlier submitted the project’s feasibility study to the National Development Reform Commission, he added.
The project will produce 460,000 tonnes/year of olefins, 120,000 tonnes/year of gasoline and 45,000 tonnes/year of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
Datang has also selected Dow Chemical’s polypropylene (PP) technology for a planned 453,700 tonnes/year plant downstream of the MTP unit.
The project’s start-up date would depend on when approval is obtained, the source said. Financial details were unavailable.
Datang Power could also use coal to produce oil at a later stage. The projects would allow the Beijing-based company to diversify its business. Datang Power is listed in London and Hong Kong.
