Technical Tour at ICCT, ECUST

On Sunday afternoon, you will have the chance to visit the Institute of Clean Coal Technology (ICCT), one of the conference co-organizers, at the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST). ICCT was founded in 1995 and has been focused on the fundamental research and the industry development of coal gasification technology. It has now 19 scientific stuff, around 30 PhD students and 70 postgraduate students. The institute is the member of the Coal Gasification Technology Research Center of National Energy Administration, Co-research and Development Center of ECUST and SINOPEC, and the Gasification Engineering Center of Shanghai. With the rapid development of nearly 25 years, ICCT has become the leading R&D center of entrained-flow gasification not only in China but also in the world. It has developed the Opposed Multi-Burner (OMB) coal-water slurry gasification technology and SE (Sinopec-ECUST) dry coal gasification technology, etc. Among the technologies, the OMB coal-water slurry gasification technology has been applied in 57 projects with 159 gasifiers.
As this technical tour is only opened for 20 people, we encourage you to book it as soon as possible!

1.2 Mt/a CTL PLANT at the Inner Mongolia Yitai Chemical Co., Ltd.

Yitai 1.2 Mt/a Coal to Fine Chemicals (or Coal To Liquids ) plant is located in Ordos, Inner Mongolia of China. The total investment is about 19.0 billion RMB, with a design capacity of 1.2 Mt/a liquid fuels including LPG, naphtha, diesel, wax, and chemicals. The plant is owned by Inner Mongolia Yitai Chemical Co., Ltd.

As the core technology provider, Synfuels China provides the proprietary High-Temperature Slurry-bed Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis Process (HTSFTP®) technology, and the process design package for F-T synthesis unit and product upgrading unit. Synfuels China – as the General Design Institute – is responsible for the overall technical scheme design, plot plan and technical review for the whole plant, and provides EPC services for the F-T synthesis unit, the product upgrading unit, and the intermediate liquid tank farm.

The first barrel of qualified indirect coal-to-liquids liquid fuels was successfully produced in China on 7 July 2017. The plant reached full capacity just one month later from its start-up, and operates with 10% above its design capacity till now. The project has significant importance for the industrialization of China’s proprietary CTL technology and national energy security. It provides a new direction for coal industry, especially local coal mining companies, and promotes the social and economic development in local communities. Join us in visiting the modern and highly successful CTL plant in Yitai!

OMB Gasifiers at the Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd.

The last stop of the Technical Tour is a Coal-to-Methanol (CtM) plant located in the Dalate Banner, Ordos City, Inner Mongolia in China operated by the Inner Mongolia Rongxin Chemical Co., Ltd. This plant consists of three Opposed Multi-Burner (OMB) gasifiers with the largest single gasifier capacity in the world. The gasifiers use coal-water slurry as feedstock. In the first phase, the gasifiers had a single capacity of 3,000 tons per days while operating at a pressure of 6.5 MPa. Their capacity is now increased to 4,000 tons per day in the second phase with operating pressure remaining at 6.5 MPa. Join us for this unique opportunity to visit the gasifiers with the currently largest single capacity in the world!
