The rubber chemicals industry affects the green melody
China’s rubber chemicals industry develop fast in recent years, which is the world’s largest producer and consumer of rubber chemicals. In 2009, the total domestic production of rubber chemicals reached about 600,000 tons, accounting for more than half of the world’s total output. 2009 to 2010 the rise of the domestic rubber additives industry boom, the 2010 rubber chemicals industry, the new production capacity of about 120,000 tons, the total capacity of more than 700,000 tons. With the continuous expansion of production capacity, in 2010 China’s rubber auxiliaries have a more substantial increase in exports, in particular, rubber accelerator exports increased significantly. Customs statistics show that in 2010 the domestic rubber antioxidant and accelerator (preparation) of the export volume reached 77022 tons, the chain increased by nearly 80%.
In recent years, China’s rubber auxiliaries exports continue to increase, the EU market occupies a large proportion, but with the implementation of REACH regulations, many products may be due to the lack of “access card” by the EU market shut out. Facing the pressure from the outside, the experts pointed out that only the product itself is green, the enterprise can calmly deal with REACH regulations. For example, sulfonamides and thiazole promoters represented by accelerators NS and CZ should be vigorously developed to reduce the proportion of accelerator NOBS; develop p-phenylenediamine antioxidants represented by antioxidant 4020 to accelerate the use of environmentally friendly aromatic oils Research and development.
In addition, the experts suggested that, REACH regulatory fees are expensive to increase the production costs of enterprises, it should promote a number of business cooperation, pay the cost of proportion, to achieve resource sharing, joint registration.
