(i) Current Development
Guangzhou is a major petrochemical industry base in the Pearl River Delta and China at large.Petrochemical industry, with the production of fine chemical as the main body,is the second largest pillar industry in Guangzhou. Currently, the city is home to 575 petrochemical manufacturers above a designed scale, two state-level enterprise technical centers, 15 provincial enterprise technical centers as well as 11 provincial engineering centers. In 2015, the city’s petrochemical industry realized a total industrial output value of RMB 255.316 billion yuan,a year-on-year increase of 2.2%, accounting for about 30% of the province’stotal and 3% of the country’s total. Guangzhou’s enterprises of petrochemical industry are mainly located in Huangpu District and Nansha District. A complete industry chain that mainly consists of oil refining, ethylene, synthetic materials, coatings, fine chemicals as well as rubber processing has been formed in Guangzhou, with the presence of leading upstream enterprises such as Sinopec Guangzhou Branch. The capacity of oil refining in petrochemicalindustry has increased from more than 7 million tons to 13 million tons. Andthe production capacity of ethylene has reached 220,000 tons per year.Guangzhou has formed an industry chain of oil refining -- ethylene, synthetic material -- fine chemical, holding a decisive position in the country’spetrochemical industry. The production of fine chemical accounts for approximately 63% of the petrochemical industry. At the moment, a large numberof well-known enterprises, such as Procter & Gamble, Colgate, Amway, DuPont, United Kingdom BP, Dow Chemical and Blue Moon, are flourishing in aclustering way here in Guangzhou.
(ii) Industrial Parks
Nansha Fine Chemical Base:it is located on the Tiger Island of Nansha District, with a planned areacovering 11.2 square kilometers. The base is mainly home to industries of composite materials, functional polymer materials, automotive chemicals and soon. Germany BASF polyurethane company, SABIC Electric Basic Innovation Plastic(China) Co., Ltd., and Lonza (China) Investment Corporation have established their Chinese headquarters in Guangzhou. Development focuses will be put on bringing in the production projects of high-performance coatings, adhesive,functional polymers, electronic chemicals as well as new chemical materials.
Luogang Industrial Base ofNew Material and Fine Chemical: it is located in the development area of Guangzhou Science City, covering an area of 22.7 square kilometers. Currently,the base boasts famous enterprises, such as Procter & Gamble, Amway,Colgate, Blue Moon, etc. It aims to introduce enterprises of daily-use chemical industry and build a cluster of fine chemical industry.
Huangpu Industrial Base of Petrochemical and Fine Chemical: it is located in the eastern part of Huangpu District, between Guangzhou petrochemical oil-refining area and chemical industrial area, covering an area of 3.11 square kilometers. With Guangzhou’spetrochemical industrial foundation, efforts will be put to develop deep processing of raw materials such as ethylene and propylene, and produce newchemical materials with high added value and fine chemical products. Industriesthat will be brought in are mainly upstream and downstream enterprises of petrochemical additives, synthetic fiber, synthetic rubber, etc.
(iii) InvestmentPromotion Priority
Priorities will be given to introducing advanced energy storage materials, advanced composite materials, advanced hard materials, high performance metal structure and other key projects, supporting the development of electric cars, high-endelectronics and information engineering, new energy equipment and other key materials projects. Vigorous efforts will be put to bring in new products andadvanced technologies of catalyst, auxiliaries, additives, the commercialized processing technology of dye (coatings), high-technology chemicals for electronics and papermaking, food additives, feed additives, oilfield auxiliary chemical, surfactants, water treatment agent, adhesive, inorganic fiber,inorganic nano-materials as well as deep processing and production of paintcoating. The production of luxury automobile coatings and stain-resistant architectural coatings will be promoted. In the area of polyethylene and polypropylene, endeavors will be made to introduce new catalyst technologies,polymerization techniques, and clean production processes, and actively bringin industries involving large ethylene, synthetic resins, synthetic fibers and chemicals, so as to strengthen fine chemical manufacturing in Guangzhou.
