The world’s first coal-based MMA plant was put into operation in Hami! Long-term planning of 700,000 tons
Latest News: On August 30, in the Naomaohu Coal Chemical Circular Economy Industrial Zone, Yiwu County Industrial Park, Hami City, Xinjiang Zhongyou Puhui Technology Co., Ltd. The production plant for methyl methacrylate is running stably! Vice Chairman Yang Yongming said happily that the products are up to standard, and the company is further optimizing the technological process to prepare for the subsequent release of 100,000 tons of production capacity.
Yang Yongming introduced that the device was developed by the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is the world’s first industrial demonstration device for the production of methyl methacrylate from coal-based methanol-acetic acid. The third effective technical route of methyl acrylate, my country has completely independent intellectual property rights.
Methyl methacrylate is an important organic chemical raw material, mainly used for the synthesis of plexiglass, polyvinyl chloride modifier, medical functional polymer materials, etc. It is widely used in automotive lens and other fields. In addition, high-quality methyl methacrylate is also an indispensable polymerization monomer for the production of important materials such as aerospace glass, optical fibers, high-performance optical lenses, and electronic information devices.
According to the website of the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the industrial demonstration unit of the 10,000-ton coal-based methanol-acetic acid to methyl methacrylate project was successfully opened in Xinjiang at the end of July, realizing the domestic production of methyl methacrylate from completely relying on petroleum raw materials to using Transformation of coal-based feedstocks. The successful commissioning of this project shows that the coal-based methanol-acetic acid to methyl methacrylate technology developed by the Institute of Process Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is reliable, and provides strong technical support for the high-end, differentiated and green development of my country’s modern coal chemical industry. It will promote the development of new coal chemical materials, drive related industrial chains, and form industrial clusters.
“At present, more than 30% of methyl methacrylate in China needs to be imported, which restricts the development of related industries.” Yang Yongming introduced that the raw materials of the coal-based methanol-acetic acid to methyl methacrylate process are easy to obtain and low in production cost. Compared with traditional methods, it is clean and environmentally friendly. process, the cost per ton can be reduced by 20%.
Yang Yongming said that the company plans to complete the third phase of the project by the end of the “14th Five-Year Plan” to achieve an annual output of 700,000 tons of coal-based methanol-acetic acid to methyl methacrylate and downstream products, forming an industrial cluster with an annual output value of 20 billion yuan. .
