China News Service, Xining, January 7th (Li Jun) On the 7th, the reporter learned from the Department of Industry and Information Technology of Qinghai Province that in 2022, the province will accelerate the promotion of key tasks such as salt lake industry cultivation, technology empowerment, and factor protection, and steadily advance Construction of “world-class salt lake industrial base”. In the first three quarters, the province produced a total of 6.8002 million tons of potash fertilizer (physical volume), a year-on-year increase of 9%; 3.8975 million tons of soda ash, a year-on-year increase of 3.5%; lithium carbonate increased by 22.5%.
It is reported that Qinghai Province continues to tap the potential and increase efficiency, and fully promotes the expansion and production of potash fertilizers. By optimizing the production process, technical transformation of salt fields, and increasing efforts to clear canals, the production potential of enterprises has been deeply tapped, and 750,000 tons of potash fertilizers have been launched. Huixin Asset Management Co., Ltd. 50 Work related to the construction of the 10,000-ton potash fertilizer project to maximize the production efficiency and production capacity of potash fertilizer.
The province’s “Key Technology Research and Application for Preparation of Anhydrous Magnesium Chloride from Salt Lake Old Brine” was successfully implemented, completed the task of anhydrous magnesium chloride dehydration technology, and produced qualified anhydrous magnesium chloride products. Successfully put into operation the first domestic production line of 20,000 tons of magnesium-based soil restoration materials.
At the same time, the province’s Fudi 10GWh lithium battery, Jin Kunlun’s second phase of 1,000 tons of lithium metal, Lanke Lithium’s 20,000 tons of lithium carbonate, CITIC Guoan’s 20,000 tons of battery-grade lithium carbonate, BYD’s 1,000 tons of lithium carbonate pilot project, Jin Projects such as 2,000 tons of lithium carbonate in Thailand Lithium Industry were completed and put into production. Started the construction of 40,000 tons of lithium salt of Salt Lake Industry Co., Ltd. and 10,000 tons of lithium carbonate project of Yiwei Lithium Energy.
Qinghai Province has intensified efforts to tackle key problems in salt lake industry technology, combined with industrial development, integrated research on common and advanced technologies, and focused on the preparation of low-cost anhydrous magnesium chloride, the industrialization of magnesium-based ultra-stable mineralized soil repair materials, and the industrialization of electronic-grade high-end lithium hexafluorophosphate The key core technologies have been fully tackled, new breakthroughs have been made in key technologies such as extraction of lithium from raw halogen, and the production technology of high-purity magnesium oxide crystal materials has filled the domestic gap.
The province promotes the digital transformation of key enterprises, and carries out work such as the “Smart Salt Lake” 5G application pilot and the construction of the “Smart Salt Lake” industrial Internet platform. The Industrial Internet Big Data Management Platform of Qinghai Salt Lake Industrial Co., Ltd. was listed as a pilot demonstration project of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology’s big data industry development. At the same time, the National Key Laboratory of Comprehensive Utilization and Protection of Salt Lake Resources, built with the Qinghai Salt Lake Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences as the main body, has been included in the list of the first batch of key laboratories recommended by the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
