ABSTRACT
The article states that China's first coal liquefaction plant, located in Inner Mongolia, is running. This facility is run by the state-owned Shenhua Group and has been converting coal into liquid fuel and chemical products since December 2008. While the Chinese government declared a moratorium on the technology due to high carbon dioxide emissions, they allowed this plant to be constructed.
