On Dec 10, 2010, Zhejiang Lansol Fluorchem Co., Ltd., subsidiary of Sinochem Lantian, held the opening ceremony of 5000t/a electronic-grade HF production line in Quzhou, Zhejiang Province. The new equipment will be put into production in January, 2011. This project marks another successful co-operation with Solvay Fluor after 20,000t/a AHF project.
5000t/a e-HF project brought in advanced technology from Solvay Fluor and began construction in March, 2010 with a total investment of 36 million yuan. The new production line will use self-produced AHF as raw materials to produce high value-added e-HF so as to realize integration from fluorspar exploitation to production of high-purity products. E-HF is mainly used in electronics industry, especially in solar cell manufacturers, which can not only meet domestic demands but also reduce independence of imported e-HF.
Zhejiang Lansol Fluorchem Co., Ltd. is a joint venture established by Sinochem Lantian (70%) and Solvay Fluor (30%) in Quzhou, Zhejiang Province, whose products are sold in domestic market as well as in global market.
