Background

From 2003 to 2008, Nine Dragons Paper Holdings constructed the coal-fired Jiulong Paper Mill power station to supply "a stable and sufficient electricity supply" to its paper mill.[2] In 2017, they announced that they had shut down the plant for 40 days to convert from coal-fired power to thermal power; however, it is unclear if they succeeded in doing so.[3]

In 2019, Nine Dragons Paper announced it was investing in the construction of a gas-fired plant with five generators, which would replace 1.7 million tons of standard coal each year, reducing 2.2 million tons of carbon dioxide, 15,000 tons of sulfur dioxide, 5,000 tons of nitrogen oxides and 15,000 tons of dust emissions per year. They stated their eventual goal was to replace their remaining coal plants with natural gas cogeneration plants.[4]
