Advanced Coal Chemical Technologies and Equipment Manufacturing
HUHHOT, CHINA, 11-12 NOVEMBER 2010 – The coal chemical industry is continuously developing in China. With ample coal resources, a lack of oil and natural gas and in addition the increasingly serious global energy crisis, China has been required to focus on the coal chemical industry. According to NDRC, the development of China's coal chemical industry creates great opportunities for many companies and investors intent on engaging in the production of coal or coal-based products, production of chemical equipment and engineering, supplying gases and catalysts, and the supply of related technology. Rich coal reserves make the Huhhot region one of the key power suppliers for China’s Northeast Power Grid, the Beijing-Tianjin-Tangshan Power Grid and China's neighboring country, Mongolia.
Following the success of the 5th China Advanced Coal Chemical Summit and World CTL 2010 Conference, Noppen held our exclusive 6th China Advanced Coal Chemical Summit on 11-12 November 2010 in Huhhot, Inner Mongolia, China. This exclusive industry-leading event, co-organized by the People's Government of Huhhot Municipality, was attended by over 150 energy authorities, senior directors and technicians from China's coal and power groups, and clean coal project developers from across China. Discussions covered topics such as China's newest industrial policies, advanced technology solutions for plant growth, carbon sequestration, and the most up-to-date progress reports on major projects across China. “Obtained excellent results” CNOOC
