This article reveals the plans of China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) to control future investments in coal chemical plants. According to the NDRC, this move was aimed at regulating what it described as the blind rush by companies to build these projects. Coal-to-liquids projects should have a minimum capacity of three million tonne/year, the agency noted. However, coal-based fertiliser production was encouraged by the NDRC because of the country's agricultural policy.
