Nanjing Chemical Industry Park2013-11-18 03:46:24
located to the north of the Yangtze River in the northern part of Nanjing and 30 kilometers away from the downtown, it was founded in 2001 as the only national-level petrochemical industrial base in Jiangsu China, and is designed to cover an area of 135 square kilometers, with a focus on environment friendly emerging industries including new materials, life science, modern logistics, energy conservation and environment protection.
A green high-end chemical industrial base: following the requirements of reducing carbon contents in both stock and increment, the Park has strongly facilitated high-end growth of its advantageous industries, multiplicative growth of emerging industries and leap growth of the modern service industries by extending the petrochemical and C-1 industrial chain. It will endeavor to extend its advantageous industry downstreams towards high-end clusters and to simultaneously help form the supporting system of emerging industries, such as new material, life-scientific chemicals and high-end dedicated chemicals, and modern service industries as required by recyclable economy, so as to build itself into an entirely-integrated green high-end chemical industrial base.
A chemical-technology-based entrepreneurship and innovation base: the Park focuses on R&D and industrialized application of key green low-carbon technologies and makes great efforts in the high-end talent attraction project, the scientific findings commercialization project and the innovation-based enterprise cultivation project. It adopts strict standards in the construction of the Zijin (Chemical Industrial Park) Special Community for Hi-tech Entrepreneurships, which is featured by new material, life science and energy-saving & environment-friendliness and comprises the university-based technological park, the emerging-industry-based innovation center, the industrial technology institute and the pilot base for high-end projects as its carriers. It aims to attract a group of high-level outstanding talents and teams, to develop a number of startups and innovation-driven enterprises with most advanced technologies and self-owned intellectual properties, and to build itself into the most characteristic chemical-technology-based entrepreneurship and innovation base nationwide.
A pilot base for ecological construction and recyclable economy: stepping forward towards the requirements of "best processes nationwide and least pollutant discharged among peers", the Park comprehensively tightens its implementation standards and supervision on local ecological and environmental protection and safe production and firmly promotes energy-saving & emission reduction and recyclable economy by means of technological advancement, effective investment and strict governance. In this way, it has notably improved its local ecological and environmental quality and level of safe production, thus setting an example of transformation and upgrading as well as of ecological construction and recyclable economy for domestic chemical industrial parks.
By 2015, the Park will manage to boost its local output value over RMB300 billion where hi-tech products and advanced technologies both contribute more than 60%, and will invest 5% of its local output value into R&D projects. For per unit of industrial added value, the comprehensive energy consumption will be reduced by more than 50% compared to that at the same time of the 11th five-year period, down to below 2.5 tons of coal equivalent per RMB10,000; the emission intensity of chemical oxygen demand will be brought down to below 1.2kg per RMB10,000; and the sulfur dioxide emission intensity to less than 4.5kg per RMB10,000. It will also try to enhance its green coverage ratio to higher than 40%. In this way, it aims to rank among the top development zones in Jiangsu in terms of comprehensive strength; to become a pilot zone of transformation and upgrading for all provincial industrial parks, a core destination for chemical talents and a leader in green development; and to build itself into a national-level ecological industrial park and a national-level pilot zone for recyclable economy.
In the current time, there are more than 270 enterprises of various categories in the Park, 153 of which are foreign-funded. 12 of the world's top 50 chemical corporations have established business here, including China's three major petrochemical entities namely Sinopec, PetroChina and Sinochem, BASF and Linde (Germany), BP (UK), DSM (Netherlands), Celanese, Air Products & Chemicals, Huntsman and Ashland (USA), and Sasol (South Africa), forming a chemical industry system mainly supported by three industrial chains, namely, ethylene, acetic acid and chloric chemicals.
