▲ Zhu Meifang
In her speech, Zhu Meifang, an academician of the CAS Member and Dean of the school of materials science and engineering of Donghua University, said that in the past two years, the UHMWPE fiber industry has maintained a good development trend despite the impact of the epidemic, with an output of more than 20000 tons, and the consumption in various application fields has increased to varying degrees. She said that to achieve high-quality development, the UHMWPE fiber industry must improve the output and quality of high-end products, strengthen sustainable research, and focus on original innovation breakthroughs. It is hoped that all entrepreneurs will fully discuss and actively interact with each other, gather industry consensus and make suggestions to promote the high-quality development of UHMWPE fiber industry, and jointly write a new chapter of industry development.
▲ Jiang Shicheng
Jiang Shicheng, an academician of the CAE Member, addressed the conference in the form of online video. He said that in the face of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial reform, the industry should adhere to innovation driven, collaborative and green development, further promote the high-quality development of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber industry, form a more innovative, safer and reliable industrial chain supply chain, meet the military and civilian needs, and serve the development of strategic emerging industries.
Change of branch
According to relevant regulations, Guo Zixian, the chairman of Jiangsu Shenhe Technology Development Co., Ltd., was elected the second rotating chairman after being approved at the annual meeting of the branch. Tongyizhong, Yizheng Chemical Fiber, Kyushu Star, Hunan Zhongtai, Qiangnima, Shente Xincai, Xingyu Security, Nantong Johnson&Johnson, and Qianxi Longxian are the vice chairman units of the branch.
▲ Chen Xinwei
Chen Xinwei, president of the China Chemical Fiber Industry Association, said that the current domestic UHMWPE fiber industry is in a good development situation. In recent years, the output has basically maintained a steady growth, and the preparation technology of functional UHMWPE fiber has continued to make breakthroughs. The production efficiency of domestic complete equipment has continued to improve, and the level of energy conservation and consumption reduction has further improved. Chen Xinwei pointed out that at present, the industry has preliminarily formed echelon development, which is conducive to precise docking and giving full play to the respective roles of different echelon enterprises, so as to improve the overall level of the industry. For the current industry investment boom, Chen Xinwei suggested that new projects should pay attention to the progressiveness of technology and avoid the rapid growth of existing homogeneous production capacity, which will affect the sustainable development of the industry in the future.
He emphasized that the benign development of the UHMWPE fiber industry should pay more attention to the expansion of the civil market, study and judge the subdivided fields for further large-scale application, identify the bottlenecks, find the breakthrough points in a targeted way, and seize the market opportunities. Finally, Chen Xinwei called on enterprises to seize the opportunity of good industry situation and economic benefits, make strategic layout in advance, and further improve the technology maturity, so as to occupy an advantage in future development. At the same time, it is also hoped that the new branch will continue to implement the new development concept, provide advice for the industry, provide good services for enterprises, and promote the high-quality development of the UHMWPE fiber industry.
The conference invited many industry experts, entrepreneurs and representatives to share and discuss the technological innovation and industrial development of UHMWPE fiber in China.
