Abstract

This paper is aimed at the identification and evaluation of various development paths for the energy and chemical industries. This is to be embedded in the broader philosophy of the so-called Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD). We focus our attention on the Polish energy and chemical industries since their development seems to be one of the key factors within the context of ESD.

Assuming a strategic option described by Haefele (Novel Horizontally Integrated Energy Systems -- NHIES) as a target structure for the next century, we present various development alternatives which may be paths leading to the target. This view if one of the results of our research in the field of development for the chemical industry in Poland.

As this research is regionally oriented, we take into consideration the possibilities of utilizing two coal and lignite conversion technologies (PYGAS and PYREG). We show their reliability within the ESD context when these technologies will be introduced in the chemical and energy and power industries.
