Shandong is one of the three major petrochemical industry agglomeration areas in the world, with the refining capacity reaching 210 million tons. Under the background of safety, environmental protection and economic transformation, Shandong has rationalized enterprises in recent years, and the safety production situation and main economic indicators of chemical engineering industry have improved markedly. The large-scale chemical production enterprises across the province achieved a main business income of 2.85 trillion yuan and profit of 164.77 billion yuan, with an increase of 13.9% and 21.1%, respectively on year-on-year basis.
In 2017, among the top 100 petroleum and chemical enterprises in Shandong, Shandong Dongming Petrochemical Group, Wanda Holdings, Lihuayi, Shandong Chambroad Holding Co., Ltd. and Haike Chemical Industry rank the top five in terms of incomes. Wanhua Group, ranking the eighth place, is the only enterprise which owns independent intellectual property rights of a series of isocyanate products across China, and the capacity and market occupancy of its leading product MDI both rank first in the world.
With the base-oriented, chain-like and intelligent development as the direction, to insist on innovative, safe, eco-friendly and effective linkage development, accelerate the optimization of industry layout and product structure, and build a province strong in high-end chemical sector. By 2022, the value added in high-end chemical sector aims to reach 510 billion yuan, accounting for 5.1% of the gross regional production.
Exerting more efforts in chemical industry technology innovation, optimization and integration, strengthening the construction of the environmental protection infrastructure of industrial parks, carrying out circulating transformation, achieving near zero emission, promoting the green, large-scale and intensive development, and improving the collaborative innovation ability of the whole industry chain in both upstream and downstream.
