CCT - Clean Coal Technology South Africa
"The solid base of the CCTSA technology is being increasingly recognized amongst international experts and organizations, and was recently successfully reviewed by the Science and Technology Department of China and endorsed by the Chinese Science and Technology Council."
The company launched the commercialization of its coal-to-liquid/gas-to-liquid technology after the operation of its pilot plant, which the company established in China's Shaanxi province, yielded positive results.
One positive result, the company said, was the recent decision by the China National Petroleum Corporation to apply the CCT technology to construct a commercial Fischer Tropsch plant, which uses coking oven gas as the feedstock, in the Chinese Inner Mongolia Autonomous region. This was due to be commissioned by 2013.
"CCTSA foresees that a few international projects could enter into pre-feasibility study stage during the next six months."
Over the last year, the company had also signed memorandums of understanding and co-operation agreements with a number of leading international firms, including MAN Diesel & Turbo SE and SNC-Lavalin Engineers and Constructors Inc, a subsidiary of one of the world's top international engineering and construction groups.
Three of CCTSA's representatives were in attendance at the World CTL 2010 conference in Beijing, Tu said, where senior consultant Ray Swanepoel delivered a technical paper "which was very well received, and fruitful discussions were conducted with delegates from South Africa, Canada, France, Israel and Turkey."
