BEIJING, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- China's energy conglomerate, China Energy Corporation (CHN Energy), will build the second and third coal-to-liquid production lines soon to expand the clean and efficient use of coal, the Xinhua-run cnstock.com reported on Monday.
Its coal-to-liquid branch in Erdos, north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, has currently operated a production line for the direct coal liquefaction which was put into service on a trial basis at the end of 2008, with an annual output of diesel, naphtha and other products standing at 1.08 million metric tons (tonnes).
Last year, the production line produced a total of 860,000 tonnes of products, according to Hu Qingbin, deputy chief engineer of the branch company.
CHN Energy was formed in 2017 by the reorganization of the power generator China Guodian Corporation and coal miner Shenhua Group. (Edited by Hu Pingchao, firstname.lastname@example.org)
