Uhde has been awarded a contract by the Chinese company Shanxi Jincheng Anthracite Coal Mining Co. Ltd for the engineering and supply of a methanol-to-gasoline (MTG) plant. The new MTG plant is part of a complex on a pilot-plant scale, which is being constructed at Jincheng, Shanxi Province, some 600km SW of Beijing. This complex also includes a fluidised-bed hard-coal gasification plant and a methanol plant. It is planned to produce 100,000 tns of gasoline annually from the year 2008. Under the MTG contract, Uhde is responsible for the licence, the engineering, supply of key process equipment and technical assistance right up to commissioning. The MTG demonstration plant will be based on a proprietary process licensed from the US enterprise ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Co. The process selectively converts methanol to gasoline.
