ICIS China Coal-to-EG Competitiveness Report

In-depth analysis and forecasts for China’s coal-to-EG market (2014-2018)

With thorough analysis of China EG production costs and EG supply/demand data up to 2018, you will be equipped to evaluate opportunities and risks associated with the Chinese EG markets.
