In the early August, Chemical Industrial Parks Working Committee of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIP) organized some professional associations and enterprises to have a site visit to Ningjin Salt Chemical Park in Hebei Province for a filed investigation and survey. The members are as following: China Pesticide Industry Association (CCPIA), the Chinese Association of Dye, the Ministry of Commerce Investment Promotion Bureau, China Chemical Group, North Chemical Industry Group, etc.
Hebei Ningjin Salt Chemical Park is a provincial level development zone and demonstration park of recycling economy and it is also one of the few professional provincial level chemical parks in Hebei Province. As the No.1 project in Ningjin , Ningjin County Party Committee and county government spare no efforts to establish it to be a new economy growth point. Ningjin now is facing with an unprecedented historical opportunity that the strategy of coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei has been turned into a national level strategy now, and Ministry of Environment Protection and State Administration of Work Safety have clearly stipulated that all chemical plants should move into chemical parks. What is more, Ningjin has become a county directly under the provincial government. All these will bring about tremendous benefits for the development of Ningjin Chemical Park.
Up to now, 36 enterprises have been introduced into the park, among them are 2 central enterprises and one global Top 500 company. With 52 projects constructed and a total investment of RMB21.63 being put, Ningjing Chemical Park could produce 43 kinds of chemical products. 24 enterprises have started, 6 of which finished the construction and 18 are under construction. Four of those who are under construction, including Salt and Speed Coke, are expected to be commissioned by the end of the year. Adding the 6 enterprise completed, the 10 companies are expected to produce an annual value of 29.8 billion after getting into operation, and realize a profit and tax of 0.36 billion after going into full operation.
Accompanied by Mr. Shang Tonghua, secretary of the management committee, the delegation toured the infrastructure and its supporting facility inside the park and visited the enterprises being built and settled , and had a clear understanding on the overall layout and its service capability. Later, a communication and exchange meeting followed. At the meeting, the experts from the delegation expressed their affirmation on the steady and reasonable development of the park and in the meantime, they also gave some critical comments and suggestions for future development.
Mr. Ma Congyue, director of park committee of Petrochemical Association , said that CPCIF has been having a high expectation on the construction of Ningjin Salt and Chemistry Park, and has full confidence on Ningjin county party committee and county government. Considering Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei coordinated development strategy, he gave some suggestions to Ningjin Salt and Chemistry Park??
Firstly: Keep the aim to be first class park in mind, and draw a big development blueprint; Draw lessons actively from the planning and building models of top parks in and out of China; Stick to high position and high plan starting points, high level of building and high standard of construction; Strive for developing into a green and ecologic park, a recyclable economic park, a distinctive industrial park, which will make Ningjin Park a leading one in chemical industry.
Secondly, it is necessary to be industry oriented and the industry chain should be extended. Keep a close eye on the development direction of chemical industry and take the route of deep procession. Design an integrated chain between the upstream and the downstream. Use the state-of art technology so that the raw material and products can be recycled and reused, which can maximize the resource utilization and thus lead the industry. Thirdly, be determined to boost the regional economy and cultivate a new growth point of economy. Ningjin salt mine, which filled up the vacancy of Hebei in well and rock salt, is obligated to fuel regional economy growth and optimize the industrial structure. Enlarge and strengthen the salt chemical industry and fight to make Ningjin the biggest salt chemical base in North China soon. Play a key role in the resource integration and structural optimization in Chinese petrochemical industry and make a contribution to economy development”.
Mr. Chao Chengyu, deputy secretary general of China Pesticide Industry Association (CCPIA), said; “After years of hard development, CCPIA now has a member of 546, including technical material and preparations processing, intermediate??addtive??packaging machinery and pesticide application machinery and so on. Under a new developing situation and policy environment, pesticide enterprises are now facing two major problems: the first is relocation and the second one is settlement in park. Because pesticide enterprises are troubled with the severe problem of waste disposals-waste water, waster gas and solid waste, they have to be more cautious where to relocate the plant. We have investigated and surveyed a great many parks and are making a reasonable layout to standardize the development of the plant. As for the park itself, more attention to the law and regulations for pesticide companies should be paid and then,with it own condition,decide whether the pesticide plants are admittable or not and what kinds of products can be admitted, which is crucially important for the sustainable development
of both the park and its clients”.
Mr. Tian Liming, secretary general of the Chinese Association of Dye, said; “I felt great that the park management has done a good job on the cooperative development and the procession of “three waste” . I am going to give s brief account on the current condition of dying industry. Chinese dying has always ranked first in production, consumption and export in the world and its scale is much larger than any other countries’. According to statistics, the present rate of settlement in dye parks has reached 85% in China and the rate of output has reached 95%, which offers them a relatively high ratio of concentration. However, the entering and concentration rate is relatively low in Hebei Province, especially in cities like Shijiazhuang, Xingtai, Hengshui and others. The current industrial condition there needs some improvement and optimization, which is a good opportunity for parks to attract investment and business.
