Industry type: Chemical Industry

In May 2015, Do-Fluoride constantly marched into the downstream industries based on its fluorochemical business. This captured wide attention.

– In early May, it announced the progress made in the R&D of organic fluorine-enriched intermediate and the successful development of fluorine-enriched pharmaceuticals such as norfloxacin. It began to step into the pharmaceutical field.

– In late May, it noted the plan to acquire 72.5% of shares in Hebei Hongxing, to further extend its alternative energy industrial chain on the basis of its electronic grade hydrofluoric acid, lithium fluoride and LiPF6 and to gain access to the terminal market. This will be beneficial to the enterprise in marching into the alternative energy vehicle manufacturing field.

In addition, the Chinese government continued completing related environmental protection systems this year, the 1st year for the implementation of the new Environmental Protection Law. For instance, the MEP released 6 new national standards for air pollutant emissions, to largely reduce the discharges. Of this, 2 standards are in direct relation to the inorganic fluoride and fluororesin sectors.

Notably, the export tariff on HF is reduced from the original 10% to zero from 1 May 2015. This will be favorable to the related domestic enterprises, especially in their overseas market expansion. Then the exports of HF will be stimulated to increase, which to some extent will ease the severe overcapacity in China.
