The first set in the world: Junzheng Group selects KTS technology for a BDO project with single-line production capacity of 300,000 tons per year

Inner Mongolia Junzheng Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (Junzheng Group) has begun construction on the first phase of its biodegradable plastic recycling industry project. The Phase I project of the 2×600 kta BDO and 2×1.0 MM tpa PBAT/PBS/PBT/PTMEG green environmental protection recycling industry will be located in Wuda Industrial Park, Wuhai City, Inner Mongolia, China.

The plant will utilize BDO technology by Koch Technology Solutions (KTS, formerly INVISTA Performance Technologies) and will reach a single-line capacity of 300,000 tons per year, making it by far the largest single-stream Acetylene based BDO plant in the world.

“I’m pleased to see our advanced technology being implemented in the biodegradable plastics recycling industry again to support China’s ‘Carbon Peak’ and ‘Carbon Neutrality’ goals,” KTS President Adam Sackett said. “This is the first time Junzheng Group is utilizing KTS’s BDO licensing. We are working together to create a more cost effective BDO line that reduces the consumption of energy and raw materials, the number of operators and footprint. This project is significant for the biodegradable plastics industry both in scale and energy efficiency.”

Junzheng Group Chairman and General Manager Zhang Haisheng said, “The project meets the requirements of industry Cleaner Production Standards in terms of energy-savings, safety, environmental protection, quality and automation. The energy consumption is lower than the domestic advanced level.”

Junzheng Group, KTS and Chengda (detailed design) held the project kick-off meeting in April 2022. The overall project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023.
