Background

The Dushanzi Ethene power station supplies electricity to the nearby facilities of the PetroChina Dushanzi Petrochemical company. Unfortunately, public information about the plant (e.g. history, investments, coal sourcing) is hard to find.

In 2017, denitrification technology was added to the plant, a project which cost 600 million RMB.[2][3]

In 2020, the plant switched to burning cheaper, high-sodium coal, which saved the Dushanzi Petrochemical company 3.9 million RMB in costs but also adds to the contamination and pollution from the plant.[4]
