Jiexiu Changsheng Coal Gasification Co., Ltd. to build a methanol production base
Recently, the construction of the comprehensive utilization project of coke oven gas of Xiu City Changsheng Coal Gasification Co., Ltd. of Jinzhong Intermediary officially started.
According to reports, the project has a total investment of 860 million yuan. It will use excess coke oven gas to produce methanol and synthetic ammonia. After being put into operation, it can produce 250,000 tons of methanol and 70,000 tons of synthetic ammonia annually, providing more than 600 jobs. The city has built a methanol production base for new energy methanol vehicles, which is an environmental protection and energy saving project that turns waste into treasure and produces clean fuels and chemical raw materials.
In recent years, relying on the advantages of the new energy vehicle industry, Jinzhong City has accelerated the construction of a national methanol economic demonstration zone, and the pilot promotion and application of methanol heavy trucks has become a major breakthrough point. To this end, Jinzhong City has continuously accelerated the development of the methanol industry in the city, cultivated and expanded the methanol fuel and methanol automobile characteristic industries, promoted the coordinated development of the automobile industry and the coal chemical industry, and formed an industrial cycle of “methanol production – methanol heavy truck use” within the city. , committed to building a model of the methanol economy in Jinzhong.
After the comprehensive utilization project of coke oven gas of Jiexiu Changsheng Coal Gasification Co., Ltd. is put into operation, the whole system construction of methanol production, methanol allocation and methanol injection will be realized. Among them, all 200 self-use transport vehicles of the enterprise will be replaced with methanol heavy trucks, and the pilot operation will be carried out first. Two new methanol filling stations will be built in the old factory area and the new factory area of Changsheng respectively, and three new methanol filling stations will be selected in Jiexiu City. , to achieve full coverage of methanol injection system. At the same time, the project will radiate Lingshi, Xiaoyi, Pingyao, Qixian and other neighboring counties and cities, and play a leading role in the promotion and application of methanol in Jinzhong and even Shanxi Province in the next step.
The project is expected to be put into operation in June 2023. After the production, the methanol produced and prepared can be used by at least 5,000 methanol heavy trucks; by 2025, it will drive the surrounding coal chemical enterprises to achieve methanol production of 1 million tons. At present, Shanxi Geely New Energy Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd. has cooperated with Jiexiu Changsheng Coal Gasification Co., Ltd. to promote the demonstration application of methanol heavy trucks.
Jiexiu Changsheng Coal Gasification Co., Ltd. is a private enterprise integrating coal washing, coking, chemical industry, refractory materials and city gas supply. The person in charge of the company said that this project will build a circular economy industrial chain while improving the comprehensive utilization efficiency of resources; position and a stronger sense of social responsibility to repay the society.
