On March 8th, 2018, Inner Mongolia Jiutai New Material Co., Ltd project headquarters held a groundbreaking ceremony for 1Mt/a coal to MEG project in Togtoh industrial park, Inner Mongolia.

 

The 1Mt/a CTMEG project is located in Togtoh Industrial Park. In June 2017, the project confirmed the replacement of product plan, replacing the original "1.7Mt/a CTO (scale of 1.7Mt/a methanol feed) and fine products" to "1Mt/a CTMEG project ".

 

As announced in Sep 2017, Jiutai Group, China Changzheng Engineering Stock Co Ltd and China Energy Engineering Corp Ltd will jointly invest and build the project, relying on industry guidance fund. The total investment of the project is CNY11.7bn, with a total area of 2050 mu. The scale of the project is 1 Mt/a coal to MEG. The construction period is 3 years, and it is planned to put into operation in 2020. The annual sales revenue will be CNY7.8bn, and the profit and tax can reach CNY3.66bn.

 

In September 2017, the Jiutai’s EIA report from Hohhot Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau publicity, show that the MEG process is different from current mainstream syngas to MEG via oxalate route.

 

Public information shows that, the scale of syngas (effective gas CO+H2) is 372.725k Nm3/h, methanol unit is 640kt/a, MEG unit is 1 Mt/a, ASU is 130k Nm3/h. The main products include: 1Mt/a MEG, by-product of 24kt/a diethylene glycol, 11.2 kt/a sulfur. The intermediate product also includes 1.0384Mt/a formaldehyde (wt 55%).

 

Coal gasification area units of the project include coal preparation, gasification, transformation, rectisol, sulfur recovery, CO cold box and PSA-H2. The methanol area units include methanol synthesis and methanol distillation unit. The MEG area units include the formaldehyde unit, hydrogen carboxylation unit, esterification unit, hydrogenation unit and MEG refining unit.
