A 27 billion yuan integrated heavy oil and coal intensive processing project was recently launched in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, the first in the region, the Xinhua News Agency reported on Monday.

The project is designed to process 2 million tons of heavy oil and 2 million tons of coal every year, with the main chemical products including para-xylene, benzene and light hydrocarbon.

The new technology could turn Xinjiang's storage of hundreds of millions of tons of bituminous coal into refining material, while also processing heavy oil efficiently, according to Xinhua.
