    I would certainly encourage the generation of biocoal by the Chinese (Brazil, too), via hydrothermal carbonization. Enough to supply all of their existing coal-fired plants, both legal and illegal.

    The process being rather newly (re)invented, I suspect the Chinese may not yet be aware of it.
