Overhaul on Changzhou enterprises to reduce emissions
2017-08-10 16:03:00

Changzhou Ganghua Gas Co. employees commenced the upgrade to the coal-fired manufacturing process to become a natural gas-burning procedure at the Changbao Steel Tube Co. plant in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, on Aug 4.

The Changbao Steel Tube Co. is the 136th enterprise to carry out renovations, after the project started in the area in 2015. Once complete, the enterprise will be able to achieve an annual carbon-dioxide emission reduction of about 120,000 tons.

In November 2016, the Changzhou government formulated a scheme for major coal-fired manufacturing enterprises to shift their processes to burn gas after conducting a general survey on the enterprises. In addition to Changbao Steel Tube Co., similar renovation work is scheduled to start on another 10 enterprises later this year. A total of 100-million cubic meter of natural gas consumption can replace the use of 120,000-ton standard coal, achieving a carbon-dioxide emission reduction of about 300,000 tons.
