Founded on January 8, 2001, Shanghai Leader Catalyst Company Limited is a high-tech enterprise specialized in production and marketing of PE catalyst and related products. At present, Leader is a specialized PE catalyst producer integrating “production, cooperation with academies, research and marketing”, which has the largest sales volume, the most complete varieties, the broadest process coverage and the most professional technical service in China. Established by China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry and Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical Co., Ltd. at a share ratio of 40%, 40% and 20%, respectively, Leader is engaged with industrialization study and production of polyolefin catalyst. As a result of business restructuring of Sinopec in 2005, Sinopec Catalyst Company Limited came into being. Accordingly, the shareholders and share ratio of Shanghai Leader Catalyst Co., Ltd. were changed to Sinopec Catalyst Company Limited with 60% shares and Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry with 40% shares. The production base is located at 288 Jinhuan Road, Jinshan second Industry Park, Jinshan District, Shanghai. The production capacity of PE main catalyst and related products is up to 620 t/a.
Leader owns seven PE main catalyst production lines, one co-catalyst production line, skid-mounting manufacturing works for the modularized slurry catalyst feeding system as well as independent associated facilities and utilities system. On the principle of satisfying downstream customer demand with great efforts and abiding by the market rules, the corporate mechanism of internal operation management (including QHSE) has been running and continuously optimized for many years, which has effectively controlled the quality risk and HSE risk, thusly providing “assured supply, cost reduction, resolution of inventory, elimination of difficulties and premium technology”and other services to downstream customers. Considering such activities as creation of proprietary brand, facilitating industrialization of research findings, regurgitation-feeding of upstream research organizations and pushing forward polyolefin technology advancement as our mission, with main technologies sourced from Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry, Leader widely cooperates with large-scaled scientific research institutions and famous enterprises. As a result of 15 years development, our products keep on being enriched, improved and innovated. Leader has pursued a way from follow-up, approaching and neck-to-neck position to part innovation and surpassing. Leader’s main products include five series of SCG, SLC, SLH, SLT and NTR , totally 45 kinds of PE catalyst, with associated products including alkyl aluminum white oil diluents (such as DC and T3), modularized slurry catalyst feeding system, anti-static chemical treating agent for reactor, compound type polymerization inhibitor for butadiene unit and etc. The products cover multiple polyethylene technologies, mainly including:
USA DOW CHEMICAL-Unipolgas phase polyethylene technology
