Cover Story Advertorial JinHui’s transition road Shanxi JinHui Energy Group Co., Ltd (JinHui Group) founded in 1995, is a large scale private enterprises group mainly in coalcoke-chemical and salt-chemical re-circulating industries, with a highly diversified business in energy, chemicals, power generation, logistics and transportation, ecology, agriculture, real estate and international trade, as well as financial services. The headquarter of JinHui Group is located in Taiyuan, the capital of the Chinese Shanxi Province. It has 49 subsidiaries with a total of 7,500 employees. The total assets of JinHui Group at the end of 2013 were 26 billion RMB (4 billion US-Dollars). JinHui Group contains two business divisions. The Coal-Coke- Chemical Re-circulating Industry is located in Shanxi Province. The other location is in Xinjiang Province, where JinHui Group is active in the Salt – Chemical Re-circulating Industry JinHui to help China’s waste problems Each year, the Chinese government has to handle over 160 million tonnes of waste. Landfill not only takes up precious land resources but also contributes to the pollution of underground water systems. Waste incineration will produce a large amount of carbon dioxide (and – if not managed properly - toxic gases). Therefore the Chinese government has started to promote waste classification in order to recycle metal, plastics and paper as much as possible. Kitchen waste and garden waste should be collected using biodegradable bags. Applying anaerobic digestion the waste can be turned into combustible gas and organic fertilizer. It is expected that the total volume of scrap can be reduced by 40%. “We believe that a better social environment will provide more development opportunities for every member of society,” says Janice Li, Vice President of JinHui Group. Visit JinHui Group at Chinaplas, Hall C9, Booth D03 In China, single-use tableware is very common because foamed polystyrene (PS) products are available at a very low cost. On the other hand, the social cost is very high due to high cleaning cost and transportation. As a result, it is more expensive to recycle PS foam products than to use new PS. Actually PS foam products are never re-used and the government needs to pay a high cost to clear them up. We know that the average plastic mulch film residue from each acre of agricultural farmland in China is already over 27 kg, resulting in a serious reduction of crop yield. Farmland is always considered as the soul of the Chinese dream in traditional Chinese culture, so it is unfortunate that Shanxi province is considered as one of the most polluted provinces within China. As one of the largest private enterprises in Shanxi, a major management philosophy of JinHui Group is social responsibility. “We believe that a better social environment will provide more development opportunities for every member of society,” says Janice Li, Vice President of JinHui Group. After market research, JinHui has chosen the PBAT biodegradable plastic project as the first step of the road to transition. 14 bioplastics MAGAZINE [02/14] Vol. 9

PBAT as a first step JinHui Group has formed 100% owned subsidiary company JinHui ZhaoLong and already invested more than US million to build a continuous production line for PBAT in Xiaoyi City, Shanxi province, with an annual capacity of 20,000 tonnes. The technology is a single step reaction via a five reactor process. JinHui ZhaoLong is the only PBAT producer using the patented standing fifth reactor system which makes it possible to control the melt flow index below 5 without application of a chain extending agent. The PBAT project can use the existing common facilities of JinHui Group. Railway loading stations and the truck fleets of JinHui Group allow transportation at low cost with high efficiency. JinHui Group also has its own power plant to provide a low energy cost. Jinhui Group is one of the main enterprises in Shanxi Province and was named ‘’Advanced Management Enterprise’’ by the Provincial Government for many years. The company has also gained strong support from both local and provincial governments. JinHui ZhaoLong’s PBAT has obtained EN13432 and ASTM D 6400 certification as well as FDA approval. The company has implemented the ISO 9001 system in order to guarantee quality. JinHui ZhaoLong, a modern large scale private enterprise, specializes in research and development, production and sales in biodegradable plastics, and has formed a professional R&D team with the support of the Physics and Chemical Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Customers benefit from a one-stop solution for biodegradable plastics solutions to their application problems .Paper lamination products, bagasse lamination products and wrap film products have been successfully introduced into the biodegradable market. JinHui Group has a strong advantage in natural resources, and also has market and technology advantages from its long term development. JinHui Group aims to be one of the top energy generating companies in the world with complete upstream and downstream routes in the industry chain. In recent years the group has used its advantages in raw materials and technology to develop products with excellent environmental specifications. “We shall stay on, and closely follow the transition road map, and we shall develop more new products in the areas of bioplastics as well as future new materials,” Janice says. JinHui ZhaoLong High Technology Co., Ltd. is committed to contributing to a sustainable development of our environment.
