Earlier, the Ecological Environment Bureau of Yizheng, Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province unveiled updates on the relocation of Youth Chemical Production Plant in the Yangzhou Chemical Industry Park of Dalian Road, Yizheng, Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province. Youth Chemical began the relocation in early July and the relocation is still in progress. It is worth noting that Youth Chemical has maintained a stable production of 30,000 tonnes of glyphosate TC each year from its A1 factory production facility, free from local policy requirements for suspension of manufacturing and relocation.
A spokesperson of Youth Chemical said that the Dalian Road Plant was required to relocate completely by the end of 2019 in accordance with the Implementation Plan for Launching Special Campaigns of “Two Reductions, Six Renovations, and Three Improvements” in the Yangzhou Chemical Industry Park. In early July the relocation is still in progress. CCM finds that, in addition to the production plant in Dalian road, Youth Chemical owns another factory on A1 parcel (A1 factory), in the east of Jingyi Road and in the south of Weisan Road of the Yangzhou Chemical Industry Park. The factory is outfitted with a 30,000 t/a glyphosate TC production device. To date, the factory has maintained a stable production, free from local policy requirements for manufacturing suspension and relocation.
Youth Chemical was founded in 2003 and is a subsidiary of Jiangsu Yangnong Chemical Co., Ltd. (Yangnong Chemical) which is an enterprise producing pesticides, chlor-alkali as well as fine chemicals. Yangnong Chemical is the largest production base for pyrethroid, a late-model biomimetic pesticide in China. Products such as chlorination products of nitrobenzene, epichlorohydrin, and pyrethroids for farm and health are in the lead in the market and are well known in the world. The amount of annual profit in Jiangsu Yangnong Chemical Group Co., Ltd is over RMB 350 million, and the company now owns three fine chemical industrial bases with complete equipment.
The Youth Chemical’s plant in Dalian road
owns a capacity of DV Methyl chrysanthemate (1,000 t/a), cypermethrin (500
t/a), permethrin (50 t/a), lambda-cyhalothrin (1,500 t/a), deltamethrin (50
t/a), dicamba (1,000 t/a), and methyl 3,3-dimethylpent-4-enoate (2,400 t/a).
In late April 2015, Youth Chemical
relocated its dicamba and methyl 3,3-dimethylpent-4-enoate production lines in
the plant in Dalian road due to some internal causes and Jiangsu Youjia Crop
Protection Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Youjia), Yangnong Chemical’s subsidiary, owns
identical facilities in the Yangkou Chemical Industrial Park of Rudong Coastal
Economic Development Zone of Jiangsu Province.
The A1 factory is the second production base of Youth Chemical and is mainly engaged in the production of glyphosate TC (30,000 t/a via IDA-process) and related products. Since 2007, Youth Chemical has launched several glyphosate production projects in the A1 factory, such as a 30,000 t/a glyphosate TC project, a 2,000 t/a acetonitrile project, an adjustment project regarding byproduct salt production via evaporation of glyphosate TK and PMIDA, as well as a dilute formaldehyde recycling and utilization technological upgrading project. Additionally, Youth Chemical has built facilities for electricity & water supply, as well as wastewater treatment.
