Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

The 4th China International Hi-tech Symposium on Coal Chemical Industry & Coal Conversion”, jointly hosted by the China National Coal Association (CNCA), Coal Industry Sub-council, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) and China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association (CPCIA) will be held on November 5-6, 2008 in Beijing.

Since 2002 the China International Hi-tech Symposium on Coal Chemical Industry & Coal Conversion has been successfully held in Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an, a great number of the delegates from related enterprises, institutions, and specialists and scholars around the world came for participation. The symposium has become a professional and authoritative meeting at high level with great influence on coal chemical industry, not only in China but also around the world, along with enlarged scale yearly.

Coal is not only a dominant energy but also an important raw material for chemical industry in China. It is an important issue to develop a new generation of coal chemical industry so as to realize technology for efficient and clean coal development and application in Chinese energy field and chemical industry in 21 century. Development in coal chemical industry is remarkably significant for ensuing energy safety, improving efficiency of energy utilization and constructing a society with economization of energy and amity atmosphere.


Therefore, taking” High-tech for Coal and Sustainable Energy Development” as the

theme and by making exchanges and discussions between representatives of experts, scholars, government officials and entrepreneurs, we believe that the symposium will push the development of coal chemical industry & coal conversion and meet double requirements for both energy and environment from international society in the new era, accelerate development in Chinese coal chemical industry, promote progress for the coal chemistry related scientific research and speed up the course for the internationalization and industrialization.


We cordially welcome experts and friends from both home and abroad to participate in this symposium, share presentations and discuss issues of common interests in the filed of chemical industry and cola conversion.We are very glad to establish such a platform for exchange and communications for all of colleagues.
