In the fluorine chemical business, Sinochem Group has formed a complete industrial chain comprising of resources exploitation (fluorine spa and AHF), R&D, production, sales and marketing. We are China’s leading fluorine chemical producer with special excellence in ODS substitute products. Our complete product line in this field includes ODS substitutes, fluorine polymers and fluorine fine products. We have also enjoyed the leading market share for more than 10 products including HFC-134a.
In the field of resources exploitation, Sinochem Lantian, of which Sinochem owns 51% equity, enjoys more than 30 million MT of fluorine spa, making it the leader among its peers. The resources lay a solid foundation for our business’s long-term development.
In the field of R&D, we have been forging our “green competency" by innovation, and providing environmental friendly and highly efficient product and services. Quite a few new programs designed to develop new materials have entered the list of China’s “863 Scheme”. After being authorized by Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, we have finished preparing the research report on fluorine chemical during the twelfth Five-Year Plan. In the meantime, we actively promoted the technical cooperation with academies, universities and leading fluorine chemical companies. We have joined hands with Honeywell to produce HFC-245fa, a new environmental friendly material, which explored new potential for our business.
In the field of manufacturing, we owned four fluorine chemical production bases located in Taicang, Hangzhou, Xi’an and Shangyu respectively. By further improving manufacturing process, we have formed a complete product line for ODS substitute and the total capacity has surpassed 120,000 MT. Our production capacity for fluorine polymer and fine product has reached 17,000 MT. We set up joint venture with Solvay to have cooperation in the field of high purity wet chemicals, making state-of-the-art fluorine chemical products such as electric-level AHF, and better satisfying the high growth demand of China on high-end fluorine chemical.
In the field of sales and marketing, we have been making great effort enhancing our brand recognition, with a group of brands especially “Jincool” enjoying good reputation and influence in the business field.
