Global polycarbonate (PC) production processes are divided into phosgene and non-phosgene ways, with increasing environmental requirements, as well as the stricter control of phosgene, non-phosgene technologies are more and more concerned.
The ideal non-phosgene process is based on carbon dioxide, ethylene oxide and bisphenol A as raw materials to produce high purity, high performance PC. The process not only achieved PC environmental protection production, but also consumption of greenhouse gas - CO2, parallel production of ethylene glycol. It has highly potential competitiveness.
In May 2016, Shandong LiHuaYi Weiyuan’s polycarbonate project technical cooperation contract was signed, the project to use Huiyuan’s self-produced bisphenol A as raw materials, and employ Japanese Asahi Kasei’s non-phosgene PC technology , The designed PC capacity is 100 kt/a.
The 2nd Polycarbonate Technologies & Market Conference 2017 will be organized by ASIACHEM on Jul. 25 -26 in Yantai, Shandong. The upcoming conference will discuss the engineering plastic industry trends 2016-2020; global and Chinese PC demand outlook; progress & industrialization of PC technologies; China’s PC capacity expansion plans & economic analysis for new projects; development of PC high value-added products & their emerging applications; prospect of BPA feedstock market & supply; safety and environmental issues of polycarbonate production and application, etc. Asahi Kasei’s expert will give presentation, to share advanced PC technology.
