Sinopec intends to lead by example in China
company's research and
development expenses grew
from 37.3 million yuan, to
93 million yuan and 110.6
million yuan, respectively.
According to SPC, the 2020
increase was mainly due to
growing R&D investments in
carbon fibre-related projects.
In particular, SPC completed
a research project for the
development of polydicyclopentadiene
(PDCPD)-based
carbon fibre composites,
with independent intellectual
property rights.

CNPC, another major Chinese oil producer, invests heavily to boost its chemical business
PetroChina Jilin Petrochemical Company (Jilin Chemical), a subsidiary of China's major oil
producer China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), launched an upgrading project in Jilin
City, Jilin province, an old industrial base in Northeast China. The total investment for the project
amounts to 33.9 billion yuan (€4.79 billion).
According to Liu Zhenhong, general manager of Jilin Chemical, the project aims to " reduce oil and
increase chemical production " in a " green and low-carbon " way. Provided that the current refi ning
and processing capacity is maintained, the oil products output can be reduced by 2.63 million tons
per year while the production of chemicals can be increased by about 2.8 million tons.
Relying on the Three Gorges Landscape Project in Jilin Province, the project uses 100 % green
electricity.
After completion of the project, the production capacity of Jilin Chemical's products, such as ABS
and acrylonitrile, will achieve domestic leadership, and the strategic adjustment of PetroChina's
refi ning and chemical business layout in Northeast China will be realized.
He Zhiliang, secretary of the Jilin Municipal Party Committee, said that the local area will build a
large industrial chain for high-end engineering plastics, special fi bre materials, and lightweight
materials for vehicles. Overall, the plan is to launch 120 projects with a total investment of 90.3
billion yuan (€12.8 billion).
Meanwhile, Jilin City will also build a whole 400,000-ton carbon fi bre industrial supply chain using
Jilin Chemical's acrylonitrile as a raw material. These chemical industry chain extension projects
will become an important support for the transformation of the old industrial base.

The new PDCPD-based carbon
fibre composite material
has properties such as high
temperature
and corrosion
resistance and can be used in
the automotive industry, the
construction industry and
other fields. Its moulding
process offers the unique
advantage of large-area integral
moulding, which can
reduce the number of parts
and fasteners, the weight of
parts, the connection and
assembly workload, as well
as development costs.
As of March 2022, SPC has
applied for 274 and obtained
165
carbon
fibre-related
patents. The number of
carbon fibre-related patent
applications ranks first in
the country and third in
the world, according to the
company, who claims to be
the first one in China and the
fourth in the world to master
large-tow carbon fibre technology.
