On 7th February, 2021, phase II of a pesticide technical project launched by Qingdao Hengning Biotech Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Hailir in China, was endorsed by the local industry administration, marking another step forward in the project’s progress.
Phase I of the project covering diafenthiuron, chlorfenapyr, difenoconazole and propiconazole was previously approved by the Qingdao Municipal Bureau of Ecology and Environment on 28th December, 2020, marking the commencement of the construction of Hailir’s 40,000-ton agrochemical and intermediate project.
In April 2020, Hailir’s 40,000-ton agrochemicals and intermediates project was approved, with a total investment of Yuan2 billion. The project is located in the Qingdao Pingdu Xinhe Ecological Chemical Industrial Base, covering an area of 429 Mu. The project is designed to produce pesticide technicals and intermediates, including 2,000 tons of dichloroacetophenone, 6,000 tons of triazole, 2,200 tons of bromopyrrole, 2,200 tons of diisopropyl-2-thiourea, 800 tons of dichloro-4-(trifluoroMethyl) aniline, 1,438 tons of diisopropylaniline, 1,810 tons of diisopropylphenyl isocyanate, 2,500 tons of Ethyl 3-Bromo-1-(3-chloro-2-pyridinyl)-1H-pyrazole-5-carboxylate, 1,500 tons of Ethyl methylpyrrole-carboxylate, 1,200 tons of 5-Methyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2(3H)-one, and 3,325 tons of phenylate ketone.
The project is being implemented in accordance with the operational and management concepts of multinational companies, in line with international design standard. It was also designed to utilize advanced equipment, a continuous production process, automated operations, and the clean-running of workshops in a green plant area, with the aim of achieving a 10-year industry leader status in terms of civilized, smart and green production activities, which will establish a solid foundation for Hailir’s long-term sustainable development in producing pesticide technicals and pharmaceutical intermediates.
