A coal mining entrepreneur who made China the world’s largest producer of coal has died.
Nim Kwan-jin died of cancer on Wednesday at the age of 80, according to his daughter, Sunita Kwan.
He was a coal miner in the coastal province of Guizhou, said Kwan, a senior researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
The Chinese government has acknowledged that the coal industry is facing the risk of pollution as its population grows.
But Kwan said it was not just pollution that was at stake.
He said Kuanjiang, the coal mine that produced the first coal for export to the United States in 1965, was an example of the sorts of policies that have brought the industry back to life.
We don’t have statistics. “
We don’t know how many people died from the pollution.
We don’t have statistics.
We just know that Kuanjian was the first mine that had cleaned up the pollution from coal.
The Kuanjeis made a name for themselves by cutting coal in two and using it to make soap, paper and other products, said Sunita.
Their company had more than 300 mines around the world, and they have also been a pioneer in developing a new type of plastic used to make clothing and other items.
Kuanjiaan also was the founder of the Kuanjanian Co., a company that had been trying to develop a cleaner-burning, more environmentally friendly coal that was also exported to the U.S. and other markets.
Kuanjaan’s daughter said that her father was a natural entrepreneur who had a lot of enthusiasm for making something that he loved.”
He really did believe that it’s all about what he makes and what he loves,” Sunita said.
Sunita said her father had been battling cancer for a long time.
He battled the disease until he died last year, she said.
