The draft environmental impact assessment of the glufosinate project of China's Shandong Binnong Technology Co., Ltd, which is located in the existing east plant area of the company, at an investment of Yuan8.45 million, was published for public comment on January 7, 2021. 

There are different processes to synthesize glufosinate. After a comprehensive comparison, Binnong Technology opted for the Strecker-Zelinsky method. The method used is for a more mature technology, with a stable yield and lesser reaction requirement, which is easy for production. However, as NaCN is a highly toxic substance, environmental requirement will be high. The project uses technology transferred by YongNong BioSciences (Yonon).

This project involves technical modification of the first step (diester synthetization) of the existing annual 1,500-ton glufosinate production plant, as well as adding a treatment unit for ammonium chloride and trimethylbenzene. 

After the technical modification, the raw materials for the reaction are more readily available and at a lower price, whilst the reaction process is simple, easy to operate, environment-friendly, with a higher atomic utilization rate, which results in higher quality and yield. The upgraded process is a new approach for synthetizations of glufosinate, which also reduces the cost of production of glufosinate.

Binnong ranked 12th in the list of 2020 China's top 100 pesticide companies, with annual sales of 2019 reorded 3,135 million Yuan.
