South African energy giants favor China's "coal to liquid" market

Sasol, which is world-famous for its "coal to liquid" technology, attaches great importance to China's huge potential market and is carrying out large-scale cooperation with China in this field. Li Sitao, general manager of the company, believes that the large-scale application of "coal to oil" technology in China will help ensure that China, the "engine of the world economy", operates more smoothly

Li Sitao said in an interview with Xinhua news agency at its headquarters in Johannesburg on the 11th that at present, any large international company that fails to do business in China is not a successful company

at present, Sasol company of South Africa is carrying out large-scale development cooperation in the field of coal to oil technology with China Shenhua Group and its holding subsidiary Shenhua Ningxia coal industry group

Li Sitao said that the project is by far the largest in the world, and the technology must strictly implement the most advanced coal chemical project with the B1 level combustion performance and grade identification of "wall insulation material foam plastic" specified in the new national standard, which will provide an example for later larger coal to oil projects and do a good job in technology and talent reserves. If all goes well, the project is expected to be put into commercial operation in 2016

Xu Hailong, deputy general manager of Sasol China in charge of government and public affairs, said in an interview in Johannesburg on the same day that the development of coal to liquid industry is an effective supplement to China's oil resource supply system. In addition, China's coal resources are highly concentrated in the western region. With the emergence of these new commercial packaging materials and utilization, the development of the oil industry can promote the transformation of resource advantages into economic advantages in these regions

Sasol company of South Africa, after 50 years of development and research, has the world's most advanced technology in the field of "coal to oil", and is currently the only commercial large-scale manufacturer in this field in the world. So far, Sasol has converted more than 1.5 billion barrels of fuel oil from coal, Helping South Africa, the "oil poor country", ensure the security of energy supply

in terms of international cooperation, Sasol also carries out coal to liquid development cooperation with India, Indonesia and other countries, and cannot arbitrarily replace the construction of gas to liquid plants in Qatar, Uzbekistan, Nigeria and other countries
