The past 5 petrochemical programs has generate a complete success regarding the level of speakers, on-site atmosphere and feedback. Participants showed strong will to take part in our 6th Annual summit. Within this mind, organized by China Decision Makers Consultancy” the 6th Annual China Petrochemical Focus 2012 “will be held on April 19th -20th in Shanghai China.
As the global economic recovery, demand for petrochemicals started to rise, and the long-term demand outlook for petrochemical products seems positive, supported by rising consumption rates in emerging economies of Asia, primarily China and India. Asia especially China will remains at the centre of petrochemicals industry growth over the years. However, with the expanding of China’s internal capacity build-up, global rapid capacity expansion and fluctuating feedstock prices, whether China would absorb the additional output of major petrochemical producers is still unknown. Demand may being held back by uncertainty, continued sluggish industrial revival complicated by the wind down of stimulus programmes, volatile raw materials, excess capacities and trade protectionism.
With this in mind, the 6th Annual China Petrochemical Focus 2012(CPF2012) continue to be committed to address strategic issues, like alternative feedstock, regional trade deals, new projects and major products’ capacity and demand, which will determine your performance objectives in China and in the world.
Our vision for CPF2012 is to be the most compelling petrochemical event dedicated in China and Asia at large and serving as the dialogue platform between international players. We’re confident that the event will definitely yield win-win situation to assist industry players to gauge the pulse of this ever-changing industry, further identify the strategic role of Asia especially China in your global configuration.
Last Annual Stats: more than 300 distinguished guests and from them there are over 30 global powerful speakers in petrochemical industry. The 5th Annual Petrochemical Focus 2011 has also attracted more than 20 out of top 100 chemical companies and 10+ china leading petrochemical giants.
With last year’s great success, we welcome to meet you at the 6th Annual China Petrochemical Focus 2012.

Focus on Africa’s small hydro during largest industry event on the continent
Small hydropower projects have proven to be major contributors to the electrification of developing countries and Sub Saharan Africa’s small hydro potential still remains largely untapped, says Nicolaas Loretz, project director of Hydropower Africa that is taking place from 19-23 September in Johannesburg. During what is Africa’s largest hydropower event, delegates will have the unique opportunity to visit some of Africa’s top hydropower projects, including DRC’s Inga, Zambia’s Kafue Gorge and South Africa’s most scenic small hydropower schemes in the Eastern Cape province.
Hydro from Bethlehem to China
Nicolaas Loretz says China is an excellent example of a developing country that has used small hydro in large parts of the country and where it has proven to be a major contributor to electrification. He continues: “Small scale hydro power systems can be installed in small rivers or streams with little or no discernible environmental effects. Most small and micro scale hydro power systems make no use of a dam or major water diversions. Despite the growing demand for power in the region, Sub Saharan Africa’s small hydro potential still remains largely untapped due to a number of reasons, such as the lack of funding and high grid interconnection costs.”
According to the Hydropower Africa project director, the South African provinces of Kwazulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape are endowed with the best potential for the development of small hydropower plants. He explains: “an example of such a project is Bethlehem Hydro that provides power to the entire town of Bethlehem. It also generates income by selling electrical power and capacity under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) and by selling its reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) – definitely the way to go!”
Getting one’s feet wet at hydropower site visits
The conference offers a unique opportunity for delegates to visit some of Africa’s top hydropower projects. Says Nicolaas Loretz: “we will take delegates to the heart of the African hydropower industry, including the DRC’s massive Inga project – considered as one of the largest and most impressive hydropower projects in the world; Zambia’s Kafue Gorge and Kariba North Bank Power Stations; as well as South Africa’s most scenic small hydropower schemes in the Eastern Cape province, including First Falls, Second Falls and Mbashe (via helicopter).”
This year’s Hydropower Africa conference programme has a special focus on Small, Mini and Micro Hydro and will look at sustainable ways in which hydropower can be used to alleviate Africa’s electricity deficit. The theme is: “Using hydropower to unlock Africa’s generation capacity”
Says Nicolaas Loretz: “Small, mini and macro hydropower will be addressed in two separate tracks and the emphasis will be on investment prospects for hydro generation projects and how to attract private investment for these projects – particularly in Africa. In-depth discussions will feature case studies on operation and maintenance best practices and a practical workshop on how to develop small hydropower projects.”
Speaker highlights include:
§ Dr Elham Ibrahim, Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy, African Union Commission, Ethiopia (Keynote address: attracting private investment to beat Africa’s energy crisis)
§ Terry Moss, Vice President, International Hydropower Association, South Africa (Keynote address: Sustainable hydropower as a feasible solution to Africa’s generation needs)
§ Israel Phiri, Manager, Office for Promoting Private Power Investment, Ministry of Energy and Water Development, Zambia (Executive session and country focus – planned projects and tender prospects: Zambia)
§ Siseho Simasika, CEO, Electricity Control Board, Namibia (Utility vs. IPP – the tariff issue)

The mainstream media have confirmed what industry insiders have known for some time “ South Africa’s electricity supply is under pressure yet again, and business and consumers face another round of power cuts and further tariff hikes, necessitating the debate on the security of energy supply, a key topic to be addressed at the 2011 Energy Indaba.
An article on the front page of last week’s Business Times (SA dreads the lights going out yet again, Sunday Times, January 9 2011 at http://www.timeslive.co.za/sundaytimes/article838909.ece/SA-dreads-the-lights-going-out-yet-again) warns that mining will be one of the industries worst affected by possible power outages, while businesses that remain unprepared could face closure.
“This year’s Energy Indaba could not be more timeous,” says event MD Liz Hart. “Business urgently needs to explore solutions to the looming crisis as well as long-term solutions to bridging Africa’s energy gap.”
Energy Indaba 2011 takes place from March 1 to 3 at Sandton Convention Centre, combining both a conference and exhibition that will bring together the foremost experts in the world, as well as energy providers in both the traditional and alternative markets.
Eskom cannot prevent load shedding on its own and needs the support of all stakeholders. The Energy Indaba embraces the opportunity to identify and showcase companies and their products from the local, African and international marketplace with potential solutions to these challenges. Coupled to this is the need to understand how to become more energy efficient in today’s modern society, which is very energy reliant. Companies from China will be displaying products and services at the Energy Indaba exhibition which provide some of these answers and can assist in the reduction of energy usage. Africa needs to make energy efficiency a reality on this continent, as the investment required for the development of the energy sector is significant and as such is a challenge for many parts of Africa. Should Africa adopt an approach of becoming more energy efficient, this will reduce the investment required to power rural communities as well as keeping the lights on in other developed regions.
The Energy Indaba provides a platform to further promote energy efficiency in Africa, by increasing public awareness programmes showcasing energy efficienct technologies, exploring innovative financing mechanisms for funding energy efficiency projects and to enhance the message whereby Africans should try and entrench the principle of energy efficiency in their day-to-day activities so that energy efficiency consciousness becomes a way life.
We encourage business to participate at this forum to prepare their own organisations for the uncertainty in South Africa’s energy sector over the next few years, while contributing towards Africa realising its potential to emerge as a global player,â€? says Hart.

South Africa must act now, to bring an end to uncertainty and instability within the energy sector and ensure a secure, sustainable energy future for both our country and regional neighbors, who depend on South Africa for much of their power supply.
So says Greg Nott of Dewey & LeBoeuf, an international law firm with leading industry expertise in the mining and energy sectors. The firm is one of the major sponsors of next year’s Energy Indaba, which takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre from March 1 to 3 2011.
“Our energy sector is at a critical juncture, decisions we make today could determine our economic future for the next 20 years. Energy is the driver of the economy; Africa’s largest. It is vital to socio-economic development and for the well-being of other key sectors of the economy, such as mining.”
However, says Nott, pessimism is unwarranted.”There has been an enormous amount of effort and consultation by Government in developing sound and far-reaching energy policies. Our firm has engaged extensively with stakeholders in various consultative forums and committees and it has become apparent that stakeholders agree: policy is moving in the right direction.”
He adds: “The concern and, in some instances, frustration, remains that there is a glaring disconnect between policy development and implementation. What we urgently need now, is action to finalize policy and regulations so we can move forward.”
Nott is calling on all stakeholders in the energy sector to throw their weight behind Energy Indaba 2011. He says the conference comes at exactly the right time for South Africa, and must strive to achieve, at the end of all the deliberations and discussions, an action plan supported by all stakeholders.
“South Africa has shown time and time again that when it comes to the crunch we can pull out all the stops to get it right,” he says. “We did this as a country in the 1990s, planning our democratic future. We hosted a triumphant 1995 Rugby World Cup that became the symbol of the Rainbow Nation. And this year we followed up with a Soccer World Cup that was lauded the world over.”
“It’s time to roll up our sleeves and build a bridge to a secure energy future, with clarity of purpose and an appreciation of just how close we are to the solutions. This is well within the scope of our will and abilities.”
