Environmental Protection Will Have A Profound Impact On The Unsaturated Resin Industry

May 27, 2020

In 2020, the year of continuing environmental protection of the chemical industry, part of the petrochemical industry continues to be affected by environmental protection restrictions. In mid-April, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and other newly established departments of the State Council held the listing ceremonies as the second batch of listed units, and officially performed their duties . The Ministry of Ecology and Environment not only expanded the scope of its responsibilities, but also shouldered the important mission of decision-making and deployment regarding the construction of ecological civilization and environmental protection after the 19th National Congress. Therefore, the official performance of the duties may mean that the industry's most important "Eighth National Environmental Protection Conference" is approaching. The official listing of the environmental protection department has made environmental protection inspection a routine, and some industries with prominent environmental protection problems will inevitably experience long-term pressure.

The unsaturated resin industry is mainly composed of low-end scattered small and medium-sized enterprises. Half of the factory's production capacity is between 20,000 and 50,000 tons, and a small number of factories are between 100,000 and 200,000 tons per year. Enterprises as the leading pillar. According to Zhongyu Information Statistics, unsaturated resin production and consumption areas are concentrated in the more economically developed regions of the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Sanjiezhou, of which Jiangsu Province, Fujian, Shandong and Guangdong occupy the top four positions in the country.

In the stage of rapid economic development in the past few years, the foreign trade and domestic demand of downstream products have boomed, which has stimulated the surge of UPR production and also made China's UPR industry a "fast lane" for rapid development. However, due to the low entry barrier, the unsaturated resin enterprises in China are uneven. Most of them belong to small enterprises with small scale, backward technology, lack of talents, lack of funds, and serious pollution. However, the number of unsaturated polyester resin manufacturers is expected to decrease when the government closes or chooses to participate in large-scale resin enterprises. The production capacity is concentrated in large factories, and the entire industry is transformed into an intensive and technological type.

With the increasing awareness of environmental protection and the restriction of national environmental protection policies, various industry-related environmental protection policies have come to the fore in the past two years, and the impact of the ecological environment on enterprises has become greater and greater. Some areas, such as Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei and surrounding areas Intensified supervision of air pollution prevention requires that companies that cannot be upgraded or renovated must be closed down. The chemical enterprises in Shandong area adopt the production method of entering the park, and the enterprises that cannot meet the relocation of the chemical park will be shut down. The subsequent production capacity that is forced to be eliminated by environmental protection includes "small chemical". Small chemical-small-scale chemical companies that use backward processes to produce backward products, generally have high energy consumption and low production capacity (annual output capacity is below 20,000 tons) ) Included. According to data from the resin industry, there are still some unsaturated resin companies in China that have a production capacity of less than 20,000 tons, so the pressure on the resin industry is increasing.

At present, enterprises must actively seek change and accelerate the transformation and upgrading of enterprises with the pressure of environmental protection. In recent years, the country has vigorously promoted green environmental protection processes, improved production processes and intelligent upgrades of equipment, in order to improve product quality and broaden demand. In addition, improving the service awareness of the industrial chain is also indispensable for improving the viability.
