Leading the way in coal to substitute natural gas

Johnson Matthey is continuing to lead the way in the conversion of coal to substitute natural gas (SNG) in China, as it announces its sixth contract for an SNG plant in the region.  The contract entered into between Davy Process Technology (Davy) and Johnson Matthey Catalysts (JM Catalysts), both part of Johnson Matthey Plc, is with Tangshan ENN Yongshun Clean Energy Co., Ltd for a plant to produce SNG using Coke Oven Gas as a feedstock. The scope of the project includes a technology licence, basic engineering design, catalysts and support services for the methanation unit that converts synthesis gas to SNG.

Tangshan ENN Yongshun Clean Energy Co., Ltd. who will own and operate the plant, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the ENN Group, one of the largest clean energy groups in China.  The SNG will be converted into Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and distributed to the local market as a valuable fuel.  The new plant will be located in Industrial Park of Comprehensive Utilization of Energy and Recycling Economy in Tangshan, Hebei, China.  The first SNG project executed by Davy/JM Catalysts, for Datang International Keshiketeng Coal Gas Co., is due to start up in 2012.
