Energy conservating and eco-friendly, high-performance membrane materials are widely applied to water resources, traditional industries, ecological environment, energy and chemical production and many other industries; however, the membrane industry in China is faced with challenges such as the low rate of localization, lack of core technologies, low application levels and insufficient supporting facilities.
In order to break up monopoly of foreign enterprises and master core technologies of strategic new materials to accelerate localization of membrane materials, Sinochem International entered this new industry in 2018. Starting with the reverse osmosis membrane, the company has formed the business layout with separation membrane materials and products as the focus, which offers technological support for developing the green circular economy. In October 2019, Sinochem reverse osmosis membrane plant started construction in Xiangshan Economic Development Zone, Ningbo, with an annual output target of 220,000 tons. The phase I project covers an area of about 123 mu (roughly 20 acres), and is planned to begin operation in 2021.
Reverse osmosis membranes are widely used in seawater desalination, electronic semiconductor, coal chemical industry, petrochemical industry, nonferrous metals, municipal water utilization and other fields. They serve as an important industrial material to help domestic enterprises reduce waste water discharge and energy consumption. With the unique formula, our reverse osmosis membrane products are produced using smart production equipment and innovative processes. They are outstanding in salt rejection, GFD and anti-pollution performance.
Reverse osmosis membrane products developed by Sinochem International
To meet sewage disposal and recycling needs in coal chemical industry and other unique fields in China, Sinochem International adjusts the product formula and process, to create products fit for the application environment of China.
High-performance membrane materials used in industrial wastewater treatment
In the future, Sinochem International is to focus on R&D, production and industrial application of high-performance membrane materials and gradually extend to degasser membrane, ultrafiltration membrane, nanofiltration membrane, hollow fiber membrane, ED and EDI membranes as well as other high-performance membrane materials. The company plans to build a comprehensive membrane platform, create Sinochem membrane brands and promote upgrading of high-end membrane material industry in China.
