To accommodate rapid corporate development and expand the production capacity, Leader started construction of a new plant in 2011. The new plant is situated in the second industry park of Jinshan industry zone (Shanghai Fine Chemical Industry Park), with total project investment nearly 200 million RMB, fixed asset investment nearly 150 million RMB and total land coverage of more than 70,000 m2. We adopt the characteristic production operation technology of Shanghai Leader Catalyst Company Limited as the technical scheme of the proposed project, which is mainly for production of gas phase fluidized bed polyethylene catalyst, totally including SCG, SLC, SLH, SLT and NTR five major series 45 products. The new plant has seven production lines and the output will reach 620 t/a. It will be built as the largest polyethylene catalyst production base in China.
Our series catalyst products and production technologies have attained proprietary intellectual property rights. We have possessed 13 domestic patents of polyethylene catalysts and 23 overseas patents of the USA, South Korea and etc. Our product properties have reached or partially been superior to that of overseas products, so we have great advantages in terms of cost performance. Our products can not only completely substitute imported products and occupy domestic market, but also be exported to overseas customers.
On the basis of existing catalyst technologies, Leader will be engaged in research and development of cutting-edge catalyst from 2014 to 2018:
Development of metallocene monomer active center catalyst;
Commercial application of INEOSdual loop Z/N catalyst;
Development of BASELL process catalyst;
Research and development of purification catalyst;
Development of process technology for green clean production.
