The "Twelfth Five-Year Development Plan for Polyurethane Industry" issued by the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation recently proposed that by the end of 2015, the scale of China's polyurethane industry industry is expected to reach 9 million tons to 10 million tons, and accelerate industrial restructuring. The high-end product level has initially formed a polyurethane system industry system with reasonable layout, green environmental protection and low carbon efficiency.
The "Planning Proposal" clarifies that during the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period, the development of gas phase phosgenation isocyanate technology should be accelerated, and the long-term research and development of Feiguang gasification isocyanate production technology; the polyether polyol raw material propylene oxide should eliminate the serious environmental pollution of chlorohydrin The method mainly develops the HPPO method using propylene oxide peroxide to produce propylene oxide; gradually reduces and eliminates the organic solvent content of solvent-based polyurethane product coatings, adhesives, synthetic leather, etc., and replaces with water-based live solvent-free products; further development Differentiating, refining, functionalizing and high-performance polyurethane products, developing recycling technology for polyurethane waste products, further improving the application level of polyurethane products and expanding application fields.
Polyurethane is an emerging organic polymer material, which is widely used in automobile manufacturing, refrigerator manufacturing, transportation, civil engineering, footwear, synthetic leather, fabric, electromechanical, petrochemical, mining machinery, aviation, etc. due to its excellent performance. Many fields such as medical care and agriculture. China's polyurethane industry has developed in recent years, from basic raw materials to products and machinery and equipment, and has a considerable scale. With the proposal of the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” energy conservation and emission reduction, the energy-saving and environmentally-friendly materials of polyurethane rigid foam will have more room for development. Experts predict that polyurethane and upstream raw materials will still have a large room for development during the 12th Five-Year Plan period. In 2015, China will become the world's largest polyurethane market.
