Yichang Huahao New Material Technology Co., Ltd. is the “leader” in the international barium chloride industry. Its barium chloride and barium hydroxide products are widely exported to developed countries in the electronics industry such as Japan and South Korea, where they are used as raw materials for electronic component capacitors. The field has the right to speak internationally.
Huahao New Materials was originally located in Xiaoting. In 2018, it moved to Hubei Yidu Chemical Industrial Park as a whole, realizing a qualitative leap in the history of enterprise development.
On October 11th, the construction of Huahao New Materials' new plant in Yidu Chemical Industry Park was in full swing, with tower cranes flying, workers shuttled, welding spatter... The reporter saw that most of the company’s plants have already begun to take shape and are about to enter pre-equipment. Installation phase.
"The first barium chloride production line in the new plant will be put into operation before the end of December, and the barium sulfate production line will be put into operation in February next year." In the construction plant area, the chairman of the company Lin Fuping introduced that 250 mu of land will be acquired for the first phase of the project, with a total investment of 500 million yuan. After the project is fully put into production, the annual output value can be about 1.8 billion yuan.
Barium chloride and barium sulfate are important chemical raw materials, which are widely used in electronic components, plastic fillers, cosmetics and other fields, and are in great demand in the international and domestic markets. What kind of "goods" will be ushered in the overall relocation of Huahao in Yidu Chemical Park? "The superposition of ‘labor pain’ and ‘opportunity’ in the new factory area will help Huahao to rebirth from Nirvana." Speaking of the benefits of moving into the park, Lin Fuping is a treasured one:
■The industrial chain has been expanded. On the basis of the original two products of barium chloride and barium hydroxide, new products such as barium sulfate and barium carbonate have been added to achieve full coverage of the barium industry chain;
■The production capacity has been greatly increased, and the barium chloride production capacity has been increased from 30,000 tons to 120,000 tons;
■The product quality is more stable, and the quality and output of barium chloride products will reach the first in the world, and the quality of electronic grade barium carbonate and ultrafine barium sulfate can both enter the top three in the world.
"The production capacity has increased, but the cost has dropped a lot." Lin Fuping said: "Using new equipment and new technology, energy consumption is reduced by 10%, auxiliary materials are reduced by 5%, and labor costs are reduced by 5%. The cost saving is more than 1,000 yuan, and the annual production of 120,000 tons of products can save nearly 100 million yuan in cost, which further enhances international competitiveness."
"After the new plant is put into operation, it can also achieve the ‘dry and squeeze’ of ore resources." Lin Fuping said that the company operates a large-scale mine. After the barium chloride is extracted from the original ore, the remaining part is wasted as waste. Now adopting a new process, barium sulfate in the slag can be made into products, and silica can also be used as a stone for sale, which further improves the efficiency. As an international barium raw material manufacturer, Huahao New Materials is not satisfied with only being a raw material manufacturer in the international market. "With the rise of domestic 5G communications, new energy vehicles, smart homes and other industries, the demand for electronic components has skyrocketed. The market will further expand." Facing the upcoming plant, Lin Fuping is full of confidence, "Next, Huahao will make full use of its own mining resources and technological advantages to produce electronic original products, and transform from a material manufacturer to a manufacturer of electronic products. Truly become the industry leader."
The first phase of the project requisitioned 250 acres of land, with a total investment of 362.5 million yuan. After the project is fully put into operation, the annual output value will exceed 1 billion yuan, and the annual tax revenue will exceed 100 million yuan.
