On September 18, the signing ceremony for the green composite new material R&D and pilot scale production base of Jiangxi BLACKCAT Carbon Black Inc, Ltd. and the International Cooperation and Technology Innovation Center project was held in Qingdao Global Economic Cooperation Area (Sino-German Ecopark). When completed, this project will become a R&D center that is biggest in terms of input and scale of construction within the carbon black industry at home, which will provide tire production with green composite materials.

A total of RMB 154.35 Million Yuan is invested in the project which covers an area of about 40 mu. It works mainly on the R&D, pilot scale experimentation and production of high-end green and environment-friendly composite new materials that are used for tires. After completion, the project will provide R&D, pilot scale experimentation and production for the industry and the Company. The scale of pilot scale experimentation and production is about 8,000 tons per year of green composite materials used for tires. Meanwhile, the project is equipped with toplevel R&D facilities and a 50-member R&D team. Later, based on existing laboratory results, it will gradually conduct R&D on grapheme and carbon nano tube, and achieve project amplification industry.

According to the plan, the construction of the project will be conducted in two phases. In the first phase, one pilot scale production line and factory for new materials and one R&D workshop will be built; in the second phase, one pilot scale production line and factory for new materials and one building for global cooperation and technology innovation will be built. The construction is expected to be completed in 2019.
