Rare earth sulfide colorant production in Inner Mongolia to achieve industrialization
Kailin Chemical Industry News The reporter learned from the conference held by the General Office and Science and Technology Department of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region that the first continuous production line of rare earth sulphide colorant tunnel kiln was completed in Baotou, Inner Mongolia and realized industrialization. Output is expected to exceed 10 billion yuan.
At the end of 2016, the Baotou Rare Earth Research and Development Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a continuous production line of rare earth sulphide colorant tunnel kilns and produced the first batch of cerium sulfide red colorants. After more than one year of repeated testing, the production line has achieved continuous, large-scale and stable operation.
In November, Baotou Rare Earth R & D Center signed a technology transfer agreement with a Beijing-based enterprise and obtained a 1 billion yuan investment for the construction of 50,000 tons of rare earth cerium sulfide colorant production line. Data show that the global demand for high-grade red pigment up to 790,000 tons, Baotou 50,000 tons production line fully operational, the output value is expected to more than 10 billion yuan. Li Bingrong, director of Inner Mongolia Science and Technology Department, said that the industrialization of the project will comprehensively improve the balanced utilization of rare earth resources and form a new growth point for rare earth industry. At the same time, the project has trained more than 20 high-tech talents in Inner Mongolia.
This industrialization benefitted from the major scientific and technological projects implemented in Inner Mongolia。 By the end of 2012, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region started the implementation of major science and technology projects, focusing on key development industries such as new energy, new materials, big data, biotechnology and modern agriculture and animal husbandry。 At present, a total of more than 400 projects have been implemented and the capital investment reaches more than 8 billion yuan。
