The largest coal-based ethanol project in China was completed and put into operation
On June 30, my country’s largest 500,000-ton/year coal-based ethanol project was completed in Yulin, Shaanxi Province. Converted 1.5 million tons of low-rank coal.
The project adopts the world-leading dimethyl ether carbonylation to ethanol technology with my country’s independent intellectual property rights. A brand-new environmentally friendly technological process route.
According to experts, according to the calculation of 3 tons of grain to produce 1 ton of ethanol, after the 500,000-ton/year coal-based ethanol project is completed and put into production, 1.5 million tons of bioethanol raw material grain can be saved every year. It is of great significance to boost the high-end, diversified and low-carbon development of the coal chemical industry and ensure national energy security and food security.
