Changhong Polymer to build fully biodegradable thermoplastic industrialisation project 01-06-2022

In Nov., Ningbo Changhong Polymer Scientific & Technical Inc. (Changhong Polymer) announced a reply on the Feedback of Application Documents for Public Convertible Bonds Issuance from the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC).


In mid-Sept., Changhong Polymer released the Plan for Public Convertible Bonds Issuance to raise funds of ≤USD106.76 million (RMB 680 million) for the secondary investment in the 600,000 t/a fully biodegradable thermoplastic industrialisation project (Phase I).


Details of the project:

  • Construction entity: Zhejiang Changhong Biomaterials Co., Ltd. (Changhong Polymer's wholly-owned subsidiary)
  • Construction location: Shengzhou City, Shaoxing City, Zhejiang Province
  • Total investment: USD237.94 million
  • Proposed funds: USD106.76 million
  • Design capacity: 180,000 t/a of degradable plastics
  • Estimated construction cycle: 9 months
  • Project objectives:
  • Expand a new biodegradable plastics business segment to optimise the product structure and improve the industrial layout. Changhong Polymer now has a relatively homogeneous business structure, which is based on SBS and focuses on the R&D, production, and sales of styrene-based thermoplastic elastomers (TPES)
  • Determine Changhong Polymer's regional development advantages in Zhejiang Province and increase its regional market competitiveness
  • Enhance the corporate profitability under scale effects since polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT) biodegradable plastics have considerable profitability
  • Raise brand influence in the industry

In late Oct. 2020, Changhong Polymer signed an investment agreement with Shengzhou Municipal People's Government for the fully-biodegradable new materials industrial park project.


Project details:

  • Total investment: approximately USD785 million (RMB5 billion)
  • Planned land use: 14.20 ha
  • Construction cycle: 5 years in 2 phases
  • Product scheme: 600,000 t/a of PBAT, PBS, PBT, and other flexible biodegradable material
