Background

The Dushanzi Ethene power station supplies electricity to the nearby facilities of the PetroChina Dushanzi Petrochemical company. The plant has 475 MW of capacity in Dushanzi.[1] 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]
