||China Energy is believed to be China's largest producer of Dimethyl Ether ("DME") based on our current production capacity. DME is an environmentally-friendly clean fuel with lower smoke emission rates compared to Liquefied Petroleum Gas ("LPG") and diesel.
Using a patented proprietary DME production technology, our DME production capacity is currently 900,000 metric tonnes per annum ("mtpa"). We are capitalising on the growing demand for environmentally-friendly alternative fuel in the PRC, as China seeks to avoid over-dependency on oil imports.
We also produce Methanol, which is used as a feedstock for in-house DME production. At present, our production capacity of Methanol is 250,000 mtpa.
