Coal-to-Liquids in China
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- "Ironically, and unfortunately from a climate perspective, China is also looking to coal as an alternative to oil, and proposals for over 60 million tons of coal-to-liquids (CTL) capacity (about 1.2 million barrels per day) have been submitted for review. The consequence of this program, if carried out, would be dramatic. Nearly a quarter-billion tons of additional coal would have to be mined for fuel and feedstock, and substantial new water resources found to supply the plants. Also, no plans for carbon capture have been announced, despite the fact that CTL-derived vehicle fuels result in three times the CO2 emissions compared to petroleum-based fuels."
