Haldor Topsøe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) today announced that Huineng, a large-scale substitute natural gas (SNG) plant, went successfully on-stream near the city of Ordos, located in Inner Mongolia in the northern part of China.

The Huineng SNG plant is owned and operated by the private Chinese company Huineng Coal Electricity Group and represents an investment of $1.1 billion.

SNG derived from coal is a direct replacement for natural gas that can be used on-site, fed into a natural gas pipeline or liquefied into LNG. The SNG produced at Huineng will be liquefied into LNG and the facility expects to reach a total production of 280,000 ton/yr. This commodity will be transported to gas stations in Ordos and the area surrounding the city. Moreover, an agreement with Xingtai in the province of Heibei has been…
