Construction of the project would last around three years, the source said, adding that the facility is expected to receive final approval very soon.
“We only lack one permit now and will get that soon,” he said.
Xinjiang Guanghui Industry would supply the feedstock to the chemical complex from its own coal mines in the area, according to the source.
The Shanghai-listed company is engaged in a diversified range of businesses from mining to new energy to property development.
