Top grade of the hottest products touches the exci

  • Detail

The high-grade products touched the excitement of the paper industry. In mid July, we got a proposal on the implementation plan for structural adjustment of Guangdong paper industry, which was provided by Guangdong Paper Association and related to the development strategy of Guangdong paper industry. Among them, "Guangdong paper industry should speed up the adjustment of product structure and focus on the development of medium - and high-end products. In 2003, medium - and low-end products accounted for 70% of the province's output, and high-end products accounted for 30%. By 2010, high-end products will account for more than 50% of the Province's output." the passage touched my mind. At present, not only Guangdong, but also Shandong and Jiangsu, China's important paper production bases, take high-grade paper products as the development direction. The high profit margin of high-end products is strongly attracting capital investment in the paper industry -

high profit drives high-end products

experts believe that the current law of value transfer in the paper industry shows that high-end new products are where the profit zone lies. This makes domestic and foreign capital invest hard to build large projects and seize the high-end paper market

it is not difficult to see that Guangdong paper industry aims at the high-end paper market by opening the proposal for the implementation of structural adjustment of Guangdong paper industry. The paper industry in Guangdong Province is an industry with development potential. Giving full play to the advantages of various resources in Guangdong Province, promoting the transformation from quantity type to quality type, and the development of products to multiple varieties, high-grade and high-quality are the mainstream of the development of paper industry in Guangdong Province in the future, so as to achieve the strategic goal of making Guangdong a strong province

it is understood that at present, the variety and grade of Guangdong's products can not meet the market demand. There are many problems, such as more medium and low-grade varieties, less high-grade varieties, more general varieties, less varieties to be sold, the high proportion of packaging paper and paperboard, and the low proportion of cultural paper. At present, in the Guangdong market, offset paper, high-grade writing and printing paper, art coated paper, matte coated paper, lightweight coated paper, high-grade corrugated base paper, high-grade paperboard bleached kraft paper, etc. are in short supply, and the gap is supplemented by imports. From 2000 to 2003, Guangdong accounted for about 72% of China's paper imports

therefore, Guangdong paper industry proposed to speed up the adjustment of product structure, focus on the development of medium and high-end products, and improve the competitiveness of leading products. Cultural paper focuses on developing offset paper, low weight coated paper, coated paper, high-grade offset paper, electrostatic copying paper, computer printing paper, carbon free copy paper, etc; Packaging paper focuses on the development of coated white paperboard, kraft paperboard, white paperboard, medium and high-grade carton board, high-strength corrugated base paper, honeycomb paperboard base paper and other supporting paperboards; Household paper focuses on the development of medium and high-grade toilet paper, napkin, women's sanitary napkin and baby paper. The wear research on the spine simulator in vitro shows that diapers and disposable tableware. The paper industry of the whole province also needs to make continuous technological innovation and develop new products to make the products change to high added value, such as advanced cultural paper, coating machine pulp printing paper, film coated offset paper, liquid food packaging board, fine corrugated paper, etc. At the same time, we should do a good job in the technical transformation of key products and the construction of new expansion projects, such as the 300000 ton/year low weight offset paper project of Guangzhou Paper Co., Ltd., the 450000 ton/year (phase I) high-grade cultural paper project (Jiangmen) of Singapore Golden Eagle Group, the 300000 ton/year single-sided coated white board project of Dongguan Jianhui paper and Huafeng paper, and the high-strength corrugated base paper and kraft paperboard projects of Jiulong and Liwen paper, Xinhui Weida paper 100000 t/a high-grade toilet paper project, Zhanjiang Guanhao paper 30000 T/a carbon free carbon paper project, etc

this will increase the proportion of high-end products of Guangdong paper industry from 30% in 2003 to more than 50% in 2010; Cultural paper has reached about 25% in 2010 from 10% now; Household paper maintains the current level of 7%-8%, and develops a batch of special paper and paperboard products with high-tech content

the year 2003 was the second high-yield year in which the annual net output of machine-made paper and paperboard increased by more than 1million tons after 2002. Some large projects have been put into operation one after another, which has further optimized the structure of paper products in Shandong Province and greatly increased the proportion of high-end products. Among them, Huatai Paper's 200000 t/a color offset paper project, Bohui paper's 300000 t/a high-grade coated white card project, Taiyang paper's 200000 t/a coated white card project, Senbo paper's 220000 T/a bleached chemical wood pulp and 170000 T/a coated white card project, Galaxy paper's phase II 100000 t high-strength corrugated base paper project, Taishan paper's 100000 t/a coated paper project, etc

in addition, Chenming Paper's 180 ton/day poplar CMP project has been put into operation, filling the gap in the production of poplar CMP in Shandong Province. Huatai Paper 200000 t/a paper machine adopts the latest standardized modular design of Voith company of Germany, with a width of 7.1m, a speed of 1800 m/min and a daily output of 800 tons. It is the first "new concept of the same platform" paper machine in Asia. It can produce light coated paper, paper and dictionary paper with a low weight of 38 grams. It is the widest and fastest paper machine in the province at present. Bohui paper has inspected the 300000 t/a advanced coated white cardboard production line, which has been imported from pulping, papermaking and post-processing equipment. The equipment level is high and the technical level is world-class. The trial run has been successful and has reached the design capacity. The trial run of 200000 tons/year coated white paperboard of Taiyang Paper Co., Ltd. was successful in only 7 days, creating a miracle in the trial run history of domestic white paperboard line and making the output of white paperboard leap to the first in China; The joint venture project Guangdong Dongguan Jianhui phase I 300000 t/a white paperboard project has entered the equipment commissioning stage, and the comprehensive performance of components with different thicknesses has been put into operation in April this year

relying on imported raw materials results in high product costs

in the past, China has long followed a development path dominated by straw pulp, and the output of domestic wood pulp is only about 2million tons per year, accounting for only 9% of the total pulp, resulting in low product quality and unable to meet the needs of high-quality and high-strength paper production. Today, many enterprises rely on imported wood pulp and waste paper raw materials to produce high-grade paper. However, the rising prices of imported wood pulp and waste paper have increased the production cost of high-grade paper and greatly affected the economic benefits of enterprises

2003, China's import of high-grade papermaking raw materials - wood pulp and waste paper increased, with the import of pulp reaching 6.03 million tons, an increase of 14.61% over the previous year; The import of waste paper was 9.38 million tons, an increase of 36.51% over the previous year

experts predict that in the next twoorthree years, the growth rate of imported wood pulp may be about 10% to 12%

in 2003, the average price of imported pulp was 440.99 US dollars/ton, an average increase of 7.11% over the previous year; The average price of imported waste paper was 131.2 US dollars/ton, an average increase of 23.19% over the previous year. This increase is unbearable for many enterprises

for example, wood pulp raw materials can explain the problem. At present, China's wood pulp consumption accounts for about 10% of the global consumption, of which more than 80% depends on imports. Jiangsu Province, a large user of wood pulp in China, accounts for about 20% of the national consumption of wood pulp, all of which depend on imports

according to experts, in 2003, the consumption of commercial wood pulp in Jiangsu Province reached 1.612 million tons, accounting for 49.9% of the total consumption of the national paper industry. Only according to the calculation that the price of commercial wood pulp rose from 450 US dollars/ton to 600 US dollars/ton, the paper industry in Jiangsu Province will increase the production cost by about 2billion yuan this year compared with 2003 due to the rise in the price of wood pulp

although Jindong Paper Co., Ltd., UPM Paper Co., Ltd., jinhuasheng Paper Co., Ltd., jinhongye Paper Co., Ltd. and Suzhou Zixing Paper Co., Ltd., which use all wood pulp to make paper, have adopted product price adjustment that appropriately reflects production costs. However, these measures have a certain lag and a process of market acceptance. Therefore, the rising price of international commercial wood pulp will affect the economic benefits of the paper industry in Jiangsu Province in 2004

raw material localization: the way out for high-grade paper products

at present, the most important thing for China's paper industry to follow the path of high-grade paper products is to solve the problem of raw material localization

for this reason, relevant departments have already formulated forward-looking plans. During the Tenth Five Year Plan period, China's paper industry will add 2.1 million tons of wood pulp production capacity, 3.3 million tons of paper production capacity and 1.76 million hectares of timber production base. By then, the new output of wood pulp will be 1.8 million tons, and the proportion of domestic wood pulp will reach 10%, 3% higher than that in 2000. The paper forest base can produce more than 10 million cubic meters of timber, realizing the gradual transition from the supply of commercial timber to the supply of paper forest base. According to the "Eleventh Five Year Plan" of the paper industry, on the basis of the end of 2005, the new pulp production capacity will be 5.55 million tons (4.35 million tons of wood pulp and 1.2 million tons of bamboo pulp), 5.6 million tons of paper production capacity, and 3million hectares of paper forest base (2.64 million hectares of wood base and 360000 hectares of bamboo base). By then, the new output of wood pulp will be 3.7 million tons, and the proportion of domestic wood pulp will reach 15%, 5% higher than that in 2005. The papermaking forest base can produce 25million cubic meters of wood, and the papermaking industry mainly depends on the papermaking forest base

after 2010, when the paper forest enters the rotation period, the annual timber output of the paper forest base will be stable at more than 56million cubic meters. Relying on the raw materials supplied by the base, it can build a supporting pulping capacity of 17.6 million tons, including 13.65 million tons of wood pulp, and 18.5 million tons of high-grade paper and paperboard. At that time, the structure of China's paper industry will be effectively adjusted, the water consumption will be significantly reduced, the environmental pollution will be greatly alleviated, and the competitiveness will be enhanced

it is learned that a paper-making enterprise in Northeast China once invested a huge sum of money to purchase a high-grade paper production line, but this production line has been idle since the problem of raw materials has not been solved in advance. Here, an old saying is used to remind Enterprises: "before soldiers and horses move, food and grass go first."
