China's coking industry aims to peak carbon emissions by 2025 Policy,  Environmental Protection 2022-08-05 09:47:34

China's coking industry has pledged to peak its carbon emissions by 2025 mainly through stricter emission controls and technological breakthroughs, according to a work scheme issued by China Coking Industry Association on August 3.

The target echoes a similar commitment made by the country's steel industry. Coking is an important process in steel and coal chemical industries.

There are three steps specified by the work plan to reduce carbon emissions. Peaking carbon emissions by 2025 is the first step and to deliver the goal, the industry will need to take multiple measures.

In response to the 14th Five-Year Plan for the industry, coking waste water output is requested to reduce by 30% by 2025, and nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide is required to cut by 20%; the application of entire-process informatized management and control systems should reach more than 50%; intelligent manufacturing should make breakthroughs; enterprises in key regions should proceed ultra-low emission transformation; and the energy conservation and consumption reduction efficiency should be improved by the end of the five years.

The second step is to strive to reduce carbon emissions by 30% by 2035 and the third step is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, according to the work scheme.

China had a total of 351 coke enterprises by the end of 2021, with capacity combined at 647 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa), including coke-making capacity of 537 Mtpa and semi-coke production capacity 110 Mtpa.

China produced 464 million tonnes of coke last year, accounting for more than 68% of the world's total, and it exported 6.45 milion tonnes in the same period, data showed.
