Chongqing’s Built a Graphene Industrial Park and Demo Base with RMB 100 B Output Planned to be Built within 5 Years
On December 25th, Chongqing Graphene Industrial Park was officially inaugurated in Jinfeng Electronic Information Industrial Park. Meanwhile, in the park, a production line with annual output of 10 million large-area and single-layer graphene films - Phase I project, which is jointly invested RMB 500 million by Shanghai NanJiang (Group) Co., Ltd. and Chongqing Institute of Green and Intelligent Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, has now started mass production.
Chongqing Graphene Industrial Park will form an industrial chain cluster with application-oriented enterprises being the body and in combination with industry-university-research cooperation, by taking graphene touch screen, graphene heat dissipating device for electronic chip, graphene electrode material for lithium battery, graphene transistor, etc. as direction, research and develop upstream and downstream graphene applied technology, and demonstrate and promote application products. The industrial park plans to cultivate more than 20 graphene application & research-oriented enterprises in about 5 years; introduce and develop about 100 downstream application-oriented manufacturing enterprises; and build the National Level Graphene Industrialization Demonstration Park with output value of RMB 100 billion.
When Mayor Huang Qifan was investigating and surveying in Graphene Industrial Park that day, he pointed out that science and technology are the primary productive forces for promoting development, and also a strategic means for humans to get out of economic crises. As a newly found carbon material, graphene has outstanding performance in hardness, conductivity, translucency, etc. and has wide application prospect in cutting-edge technologies, such as bio-gene, new energy and new materials, electronic information, etc. which makes it possible for graphene to lead a new scientific and technical revolution. Chongqing is an important national modern manufacturing base. The development of new materials industry, represented by graphene, is not only for implementing national innovation-driven strategies and supporting concrete actions of research findings industrialization, but also an important measure for readjusting industrial structure and accelerating the development of strategic emerging industries in Chongqing. In the next step, the industrial park will form a complete industrial chain with application-oriented enterprises being the body, scientific institutions deeply involved, and in combination with industry-university-research cooperation, by taking key industries as direction, research and develop upstream and downstream graphene applied technology, and demonstrate and promote application products; thus, the park will form core competence and become the leader in the graphene industry.
