「科思创」

化学工业的发展在促进人类和社会进步的同时,在客观上产生了环境污染、材料浪费等问题。化工行业体积规模极大,产业链延伸范围广,在绿色减排方面同样面临巨大压力。“绿色化工”成为化工行业全产业链可持续发展的目标。

科思创作为世界领先的高科技聚合物材料生产商,是一家拥有80年经验的“初创”企业,致力于激励涵盖六大环节的全化工行业价值链,包括:原材料、生产运营、物流、客户经营、产品使用及废物回收,加入可持续发展进程,通过不断创新,来解决化工行业乃至整体社会面临的众多重大挑战。

打造高度融合绿色园区

据中国石油和化学工业联合会化工园区工作委员会所做的一次全国性调研统计,截至2014年底,全国重点化工园区以石油和化工为主导产业的工业园区共有381家。相比生活园区和商业园区等而言,工业园区具有一定的生态脆弱性,且由于数目基数庞大,我们如何给“绿色园区”定下一个标准?

科思创首席技术官萧枫博士(dr. klaus schäfer)在接受记者采访时表示:“‘化工园区’这个概念本身已经是一个可持续发展的概念了。现在的化工园区是一家企业生产的产品直接给园区另外一家或几家企业使用,已经是产品和副产品循环再使用包括废物再利用的概念,高度融合化的园区发展,势必会更加环保。”

现代化工园区之所以环保,原因之一便是通过集中化、专业化的处理,实现园区产生的废水、废气、废渣的清洁化,相比分散化建厂,环保效率可以得到大大提高。

科思创秉承可持续发展原则——人类(people)、地球(planet)、盈利(profit),希望在经济、环境和社会层面创造同等的价值,因此选取了运营理念与之相符的园区落地。化工园区高度一体化、集约化和清洁化的发展趋势,已经成为促进化工行业整体可持续发展进程的一大推动力。

拓展创新材料应用领域

萧枫博士告诉记者,目前科思创创新研发的重点领域主要包括产品和技术,希望通过不断跨越可能极限,减少对环境的影响,造福全体社会。为此,科思创建立了全球三大技术创新网络,包括作为亚太研发中心的科思创上海聚合物研发中心(prdc),以支持其长期以来在创新方面的不断突破。

科思创目前涉足的基建行业包括:交通、电气、建筑等等,从未来这些行业的减排空间来看,科思创所研发的材料和技术都具有在实践中推广的价值。最新的创新成果包括实现将温室气体二氧化碳转化为塑料原材料的全新技术,通过该技术,二氧化碳替代化石原料作为原材料的比例高达20%,这项技术目前已被用于生产床垫和软垫家具的软质聚氨酯泡沫。科思创为该项技术建立了名为cardyon®的全新品牌。

此外,还有水性聚氨酯涂料技术,与传统溶剂体系相比,科思创的该项技术可以大幅降低涂料的挥发性有机化合物(voc)含量,该项技术目前已被应用在了机车、建筑外墙及工程机械等领域。

在清洁能源技术方面,科思创的新材料同样有所应用。科思创成功制造出亚洲首个聚氨酯风机涡轮叶片。这个长达37.5米的叶片专为风力涡轮机设计,功率达1.5兆瓦,在提高叶片能源效率的同时,降低了生产工艺成本,具有更好的耐用性。

推动行业转型升级势在必行

过去15年来,中国在化工和能源领域的发展势头非常迅猛,市场迅速拓展。中国目前也在把此前较为分散的小型化工厂进行园区集中,清洁生产流程,改善周边环境。

萧枫接受采访时指出,目前,能源供应包括天然气和电力,是中国化工行业取得突破的重点。要减少中国化工行业在能源供应上的成本,目前正在进行的包括三大方向:第一是把化工行业集中安放在化工园区当中,使他们集中化、一体化;第二是减少电力供应、能源供应过程当中二氧化碳排放的足迹;第三是降低能源供应包括天然气、电力的成本。

innovative materials contribute to sustainable future of the chemical industry

the development of chemical industry promotes human and social progress while objectively producing environmental pollution and material waste. the chemical industry has a large volume scale and a wide range of industrial chain. it is also under great pressure in terms of green emission reduction. "green chemical" becomes the target of the whole industry chain sustainable development of chemical industry.

as a world-leading supplier of high-tech polymer materials, covestro is a start-up with 80 years of innovation experience, committed to involve the entire chemical industry value chain in its firm steps towards sustainability via constant innovation to solve various major challenges facing the industry and even the whole society. the sustainability value cycle as defined by covestro includes six segments: raw materials, production operations, logistics, customer operations, use of product, and end-of-life.

building a highly-integrated green industrial park

according to a national survey conducted by the chemical industrial park working committee of china petroleum and chemical industry federation (cpcif), by the end of 2014, there were 381 key chemical industrial parks in china mostly consist of companies from the petroleum & chemical industries. compared with other types of parks, industrial parks can easily bring harm to ecosystem. then, how to set a standard of "green industrial park"for a large number of them in china?

dr. klaus schäfer, chief technology officer at covestro, told the reporter that, “the concept of ‘chemical industrial park’ itself is already very sustainable, which enables the recycle of products, byproducts and even wastes. the development of highly integrated industry parks will definitely make them even more environment-friendly.”

another advantage of modern chemical industrial park is using centralized facilities to deal with waste water, waste gas and waste residues with a higher efficiency than those scattered in different locations.

by insisting on its sustainability principle - people, planet, profit, covestro aims to create value at the economic, environmental and social levels in the meantime, so we choose the park whose operation concept fits their values. the development trends of chemical industry parks, including integration, intensification and cleanliness, have become one of important drivers for the establishment of the whole industry’s sustainable future.

expanding the application areas of innovative material solutions

dr. klaus schäfer told the reporter that, at present, covestro’s innovation mainly focuses on products and technologies. through constantly crossing limits of possibility, they hope to mitigate the negative impact brought to the environment and benefit the whole society. therefore, covestro has established one of its three innovation hubs in the world - polymer research and development center (prdc) in shanghai.

covestro provides material solutions for industries including automobile, electricals and construction, etc. the materials and technologies it developed for these industries are able to help emission reduction in future. one of its recent breakthroughs is the transformation of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into raw materials for plastic. this technology enables carbon dioxide to replace as high as 20% fossil fuels and has already been used to make soft polyurethane foam for mattresses and upholstered furniture. for this covestro has established a new brand called cardyon®.

in addition, covestro also developed waterborne polyurethane coatings. compared with coatings based on conventional solvent system, they can greatly reduce the voc content of coatings. this technology has already been applied in locomotives, exterior building walls, engineering machinery and other fields.

the new materials of covestro are also used in clean energy technologies. covestro has successfully produced asia's first polyurethane wind turbine blade. the 37.5 meter-long rotor blade, which is designed for a wind turbine with an output of 1.5 megawatts, enables higher energy efficiency, longer durability yet lower production cost.

accelerating the upgrade of the chemical industry

over the last 15 years, china’s chemical and energy sectors have been seeing great growth with fast-growing markets. china now is accelerating the integration of chemical companies into industry parks so as to promote the cleaner production process and sustain surrounding environment.

dr. klaus schäfer told the reporter that energy supply, especially natural gas and electricity, is a key to the establishment of chinese chemical industry’s sustainable future. there are three directions need attention: centralizing chemical companies; reducing carbon footprint during supplying them as well as lowering their supply cost.
