Plastic industries needed for high end products to increase scientific and technological input

Plastic industries needed for high end products to increase scientific and technological input

According to statistics, rubber and plastic products industry's fixed asset investment in the first quarter of 90.2 billion yuan, down 22.8% investment growth over the same period last year, 12.3% lower than at the end of last year. Plastic processing industry growth is slowing, "Twelve-Five" during the average growth rate of less than 10% and less "Eleven-Five" half the average growth rate for the period.

Lu Gendi introduction of synthetic resins, chemical sales in East China branch of Sinopec, current crude prices remain low, plans new coal poly-olefin plant is expected to be significantly reduced, and the device will be under construction or slated to delay. Low oil prices also has some influence on naphtha polyolefin plant, some companies believe that current oil prices of US $ 60 a barrel, but after the device into operation, 3-5 years in the future, if oil prices rose back above $ 100 again, our competitiveness will be greatly reduced. So, for now, the enterprise has no impulses of the new device. Meanwhile, at least 1/3 of coal to olefins projects will be delayed. In view of this, polyolefin production expanded less than expected in the future, will gradually tightening of supply and demand.

Trend productivity growth exceeds demand situation significantly

Even so, due to the rapid expansion of production capacity in the previous years, oversupply situation is still difficult to change. According to Cui Kezeng, Deputy General Manager of information introduced, our plastic is outside the United States ranked first in the world, and annual sales of about 80 million tons. As demand grew, polyolefin production expanded rapidly in China in recent two years. In polypropylene, for example, production capacity, 2013 is 13 million tons by 2015 has been increased by 9 million tons, with an average annual growth rate of 30%, while the domestic annual demand growth of less than 4%.

Under the structural contradiction of supply and demand, competition in the industry intensifies. With the development of coal chemical industry as well as the 2014 International crude oil declined sharply in the second half, driven by profit, coal polyolefin rise, domestic coal polyolefin market is changing from "second world" that both CNPC and Sinopec, and development of "three-pillar".

In the Yu information analyst Wang Xiao said, China coal chemical itself of technology more skillful, coal business Poly olefin device concentrated horse DD including Shenhua baotou full density device 300,000 tons/years, and polypropylene device 300,000 tons/years; God huaning coal polypropylene device 1 million tons/years; Datang Doran polypropylene device 460,000 tons/years, DD completely break traditional poly olefin market pattern, impact naphtha business Poly olefin.

High-end products rely on imported technology should increase

Full-time Vice Chairman and Secretary-General of the China light industry Federation said Wang Shicheng, along with China's economic development has entered a new normal, and high-speed development of the plastics industry from the past go to speed development. China's plastic products industry generally weak independent research and development, investment in science and technology, intensive low level of product and market development disorder and other problems.

It is understood that plastic products in China, production of low-end products too high, lack of high-end products. For example, in the PP field, low temperature, high stiffness and high impact high heat seal material flow, electrical materials, medical radiation resistant materials must rely on imports. In addition, financing, financing of the plastics industry at present you are hampering the development of the plastics industry and trade frictions. Therefore, enterprises need new tools to deal with, will minimize the negative factors, trying to keep our country's share of the global plastic industry.

United Kingdom Government requested the 2017 plastic packaging recycling 57%

United Kingdom Government requested the 2017 plastic packaging recycling 57%

It is learnt that the United Kingdom plastics industry unveiled a plan, called for greater efforts to complete the Government's 2017 57% plastic packaging recycling goals. This named "plastics industry action plan" plan calls for all practitioners to make efforts to achieve the goal.

In 2013, the United Kingdom recovered 787,050 tons of plastic packaging. 2013 launch of plastic packaging is if the Government approved a total of 2.49 million tons, a figure, United Kingdom 2013 year of recovery is 32%.

Allegedly, if not all such as the Central Government, local government, waste management, recycling, supporting projects and forcing the full participation of users, producers and processors, the achievement of this goal will be difficult.

United Kingdom company Valpak recycling organisation WRAP and cooperation estimates that to wait until 2020 to achieve the recovery of 57% goals. On this basis, the Government is currently consulting the relevant agencies to study whether this responsibility should be modified, reduced to a 42% of the original plan and timetable to be completed later.

Meanwhile, the industry also called on practitioners to take a variety of measures to improve the recovery rate of plastic, including clear policy threshold set by the Government, expanding the scope of recyclables species, improve the quality of recycling plants packing material.

This plan is the United Kingdom Association of WRAP and "plastics 2020 organization" designed for the two institutions. "Plastics 2020 organization" by the European Association of plastics, United Kingdom plastic Association and plastic packaging films association formed a special group.

See light of the photovoltaic industry

See light of the photovoltaic industry

Although the photovoltaic (PV) industry Road will not be smooth, but solar energy is still very much wants to be the main energy source of the future, this is the plastic industry to take advantage of a market segment. European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) study showed that the global solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity of at least 38.4 GW global accumulated installed capacity of 138.9GW,2013 is another historic year for solar PV technology.

Global PV installed capacity up to 138.9GW

More than 10 years, the PV market in Europe for the first time no longer ranks first of the PV market in the world. Rapid in Asia than Europe, 2013 global PV market is about 56%. The impetus to the development of Asia, mainly from China and Japan, the two countries respectively ranked first and second place in the global market.

PV industry is still affected by the policy-driven industries. Policy support for the PV industry of market decline has led to several European countries narrowed. For example, in 2013, Belgium dropped from 600 MW of installed capacity 215MW, France dropped from 1115MW to 613MW, Denmark dropped from 300MW 200MW.

EPIA says, America is growing slower than expected, but the United States, and Canada and Mexico grew. In other parts of the world, interest in PV have not translated into significant market developments.

While the European PV market appears to be in recession, but in 2013, in addition to the wind outside, there is no other power devices reach the PV capacity levels in the area. Oliver, President of EPIA Schfer said: "this proves that solar energy is becoming an important part of power system, to more people worldwide delivery of clean, safe, affordable energy. ”

We have reason to be optimistic. In 2013, after the EU-China solar panels on trade disputes, zero tariffs on environmental goods negotiations have begun. Officials from 14 Governments (Australia, and Canada, China, Costa Rica, EU, Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea, and New Zealand, and Norway, and Singapore, and Switzerland, China, Taiwan and the United States) meeting in July 2014 for the first time, starting the talks.

First phase of the talks focused on the exemption from tariffs on environmental goods, according to officials, the talks will end in 2015. To do this, on the Asia-Pacific economic cooperation (APEC) Forum in 2012 negotiations agreed 54 kinds of environmentally friendly products, such as wind turbines, solar water heaters, wastewater filter and PV panels.

United States trade representative Peter Froman said, "remove tariffs of the technology we need to protect the environment, we can reduce the price of environmentally friendly products, making it more suitable for mass, so we made significant progress in environmental protection and trade policy objectives. ”

EPIA predicted that by 2018, total installed capacity in Europe could increase from 81.5 GW by 2013 to 119GW and 156GW. Under the best of circumstances, and by 2015 could be 100GW.

Asia-Pacific into a new driving force

The Asia-Pacific region, including China, occupies a portion of PV installed capacity in the next few years. Under the best of circumstances, by 2018, the global PV system capacity will be up to 430.3GW, and the end of 2013 to 138.9GW.

GlobalData's study points out that the Asia-Pacific region as active buyers of PV technology at the same time, 2013 solar module production in the global leader.

Alternative energy projects Manager of GlobalData Ankit Mathur said, "solar PV market demand of a significant sustained growth is driving the global module output growth, we expect growth this year from 2013 40.806GW 45.170GW. In 2014, the Chinese account for a large share of 30GW, while Japan and Korea followed, respectively, 3700MW and 2400MW. "

GlobalData says solar PV market demand increased substantially reducing global overcapacity, fell from 151% in 2009 to 2013 62%.

Suoerweite polymer thin films Division, global marketing manager of the company Philippe-Jacques Leng responded by saying: "device and module Assembly of the photovoltaic market, as well as the manufacturing industry is booming, especially in China. We think this is a great market for sustainable development, requires special materials designed to meet the high performance requirements of the PV industry. ”

Increasing efficiency, improving processes and emerging technologies

Solvay is the Sun of power right from the start (Solar Impulse) project partners.

Headquartered Belgium supplier of materials developed specifically for PV module membrane: application of ethylene-trifluoro chloroethylene Halar (ECTFE) film grade. 20 Micron parts manufactured with Halar ECTFE fluorinated polymer film used for protection of the Si2 PV solar panels, covering 17248 monocrystalline silicon, or about 300 square meters of the wing.

Solvay said Luke Du, General Manager of greater China and Southeast Asia, renewable energy and the urgent needs of lightweight structures for the plastics industry offers huge opportunities.

Last October, the Netherlands Royal DSM company in India Pune engineering plastic factory held a solar energy technology demonstration Center's opening ceremony. In the showroom, DSM's KhepriCoat anti-reflective coating on the PV panels, allows more light to enter the solar installation, thus improving efficiency.

Arkema and the Germany company Krempel has developed a unique backplane, grades for the KPK. The back panel is a three-tier structure, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) core layer sandwiched between two layers of Arkema company Kynar polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) film.

Filmcutter SpA and Toray Films Europe this year "polymer Assembly of PV industry" jointly launched a new generation of PET monolayer film on back panel.
