Extended Reading: Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd.'s 400,000 t/a Coal-to-Ethylene Glycol Project

    Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd. utilizes the second-generation "WHB Synthesis Gas to Ethylene Glycol Technology," jointly developed by China Wuhuan, Huaxiao, and Hebi Baoma. With this technology, the company can produce 400,000 t/a of ethylene glycol.

    On December 26, 2019, Yankuang Group's subsidiary, Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd., successfully commissioned its 400,000 t/a Coal-to-Ethylene Glycol project. Yankuang Group plans to use Rongxin Chemical's Phase I project as the foundation and further expand with Phase II, Phase III, and other large-scale constructions to extend the coal chemical industry chain. The ultimate goal is to establish a coal chemical demonstration base with a production capacity of 5 million t/a of coal-to-methanol and a series of downstream fine chemical products. This initiative aims to promote coal conversion and industrial upgrading, creating a new benchmark in the coal conversion industry.

    The Phase II project mainly produces 900,000 t/a of methanol and produces 400,000 t/a of coal-based ethylene glycol using an indirect method. Some of the methanol is used as a raw material for downstream Dimethyldioxime (DMMn) production, with an annual capacity of 300,000 t/a of DMMn.

More Information:

    Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd. is wholly owned by Yanzhou Coal Mining Erdos Energy & Chemical Co., Ltd, which in turn is fully owned by Yanzhou Coal Mining Co., Ltd. Yanzhou Coal Mining Co., Ltd's main business includes coal mining, sales, self-owned railway freight transportation in mining areas, road freight transportation, port operations, comprehensive scientific and technological services in coal mining, and methanol production and sales. As a leading player in the East China power coal industry, the company has actively expanded its presence in three major coal bases in Shandong, Shaanxi-Inner Mongolia, and Australia. It is one of the largest state-owned coal enterprises with a high level of internationalization, significant production capacity, and stable growth in production and sales. The post-pandemic rise in domestic and international coal prices is expected to improve the company's performance.

    In July 2020, Yanzhou Coal Mining Company and Shandong Energy Group merged to form Shandong Energy Group. After the restructuring, Shandong Energy Group Co., Ltd.'s coal production reached approximately 270 million t, ranking third among domestic coal enterprises with a market share of 6.9%. It is the only provincial state-owned coal group in Shandong Province, and it boasts outstanding geographical advantages.
