Sinoway Carbon awarded an EPC contract to SAMI on December 29, 2017 to build a calcined petroleum coke(CPC) project with an annual output of 280,000 tons in Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province. The project is the first phase of the plant’s planned capacity of 840,000 tons, for which Sinoway Carbon has signed an investment agreement with the local government in November.
