The Otog Economic Development Zone – located in the city of Ordos in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region – delivered some strong industrial numbers in the first 10 months of the current year.

From January to October, the total industrial output value of the zone reached 101.25 billion yuan ($15.19 billion), a whopping year-on-year increase of 76.2 percent.

During the period, the zone implemented 20 key projects each with an investment of more than 100 million yuan and completed 6.23 billion yuan in fixed asset investment, an increase of 41.7 percent year-on-year.

To top it off, the zone's total sales revenue amounted to 104.61 billion yuan, an increase of 71.1 percent year-on-year.

Meanwhile, the zone's total energy consumption slipped 6.5 percent year-on-year.

Breaking that down, energy consumption by the coking industry fell by 9.2 percent, energy used by the chlor-alkali industry was down 15.6 percent year-on-year and power used in the treatment of sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide emissions retreated 12 percent and 14.08 percent, respectively. 

In recent years, the zone has reportedly committed itself to develop the four major industrial clusters of green coking, the new chemicals industry, new energy equipment manufacturing and new materials.

It's also pushing to build the six dynamic industrial chains of coal coking, hydrogen storage manufacturing, new silicon-based photovoltaic materials, dye and pigment production, the degradable plastics recycling industry and the comprehensive utilization of carbon dioxide.
