MMF industry eliminates backward production capacity

May '10
A year back the Chinese government had released a policy paper, laying out steps to be taken to improve the prospects of the textile industry. Among them was a proposal to eliminate backward production capacity in the chemical fiber industry.

In 2009, the chemical fiber industry eliminated backward production capacity totaling to 1.37 million tons in 2009. Among them, 500,000 tons were polyester filament; 496,500 tons were polyester staple fiber and 90,000 tons viscose staple fiber.

Other backward production capacities which faced the axe were, 16,000 tons of viscose filament yarn, 203,000 tons acrylic fiber, 30,000 tons of nylon fiber capacity, 11,500 tons spandex capacity and 25,000 tons of polypropylene capacity.

Again from all these, 360,000 tons out of 496,500 tons of polyester staple fiber was converted in to manufacturing of PET bottle chips, 11,500 tons of spandex changed from DMF to DMAC.

China Chemical Fiber Association is stepping up the implementation of the "12th Five Year Plan" for chemical fiber industry, which aims to guide the industry with scientific concept of development and raise overall capability of independent innovation.

At the same time, develop high technology, promote energy conservation, cleaner production and adopt recycling methods. In short, guide the industry to walk the direction of optimization of industrial structure and sustainable development.
