LVLIANG, China, July 15, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Lvliang, an important coking base of China in Shanxi Province has been pushing 
forward its coking industry towards high-quality and clustering development, a 
new path for its pillar industry, according to the Second Belt and Road Seminar 
on Green Development of Coal Coking Industry, organized by The People's 
Government of Lvliang City and held on Saturday in Xiaoyi City, Shanxi Province.

A report released at the seminar shows that coke output in Lvliang City 
accounts for about 25 percent of the total output of Shanxi Province. By the 
end of 2018, the number of coking enterprises in the city had decreased to 19, 
with the coke production capacity totaling 47.45 million tons. The coking 
enterprises in the city have all met the special emission limit standards for 
environmental protection.

In an effort to ensure the clustering development and strict environmental 
protection control, Lvliang has built three 10 million-ton coal chemical bases 
and one 5 million-ton base. Xiaoyi Coal Chemical Industry Park, as one of the 
bases, has so far been home to more than 90 enterprises, generating a total 
output value of 20.273 billion yuan a year.

Wang Liwei, Mayor of Lvliang City, said that Lvliang will continue to extend 
the coal-coking industry towards high-end production, carry out 19 modern fine 
coal chemical industry projects with a total investment of 47 billion yuan, and 
strive to build a 50 billion-yuan modern coal chemical industry cluster.
