?10000t/a Biodiesel Production Facilities Constructed in Joint Hands

Recently, the Institute of Coal Chemistry (ICC), CAS, successfully completed the industrial pilot test on the continuousness of the technology for biodiesel synthesis in subcritical methanol that was applied to a facility with an 800t/a capacity in Shanxi Yongji Hongyuan Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. The test produced satisfactory resultsí¬the conversion rates of esterification and interesterification are higher than 95%, which meets the requirements to the reaction in supercritical methanol. Meanwhile, the production cost has been also remarkably reduced by technology. As a follow-up, the two partners are currently preparing to construct biodiesel production facilities with a capacity of 10000t/a.

Spallation Neutron Source Facility Co-establish

CAS is to join hands with South China's Guangdong Province in making a proposal to co-construct Chinese Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) and the State CSNS Laboratory in Dongguan, a booming city in the province. On Feb. 13th, 2007, Lu Yongxiang, President of CAS and Guangdong Governor Huang Huahua signed a Memorandum of Cooperation on behalf of the two sides. The CSNS accelerator is the first large-scale, high-power accelerator project with world-class state-of-the-art technology to be constructed in China.
