ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the coal-to-liquids (CTLs) projects in China. The projects involve indirect or direct liquefaction of coal, sometimes followed by integration to methanol-to-olefins and olefins-to-polymers production. According to the author, if China does make polymers in abundance from coal and the economics work, this could be the biggest shift in the industry's dynamics.
