1. Introduction to the Project

1.1 Project Background

1.1.1 Product Introduction

This project is based on the current situation of diatomite resource and its development in China and Baishan City, starting from the idea of intensification, highly-efficient and comprehensive use of diatomite resource, adopting advanced and mature ore-dressing and deep-processing technologies which have independent intellectual property right, to establish a low-grade production base for diatomite ore-dressing and diatom ooze wall materials and to process these two items with a promising market prospect. Main products as diatomite and diatom ooze are newly environmental-protection and energy-saving mineral materials making full use and promoting mineralogical diatomite characteristics, fit for the need of modern economic and social development, enjoying a sound market prospect and vast development space.

Diatomite is high in purity, with total pore volume more than superficial area, thus it has better absorbent, insulated and insulative properties as a new and recyclable low environmental-load and low cost water-treating materials; the special papermaking sewage agent planned to produce in this project not only works well in removing COD, BOD and suspended solids, but applying the water-treating diatomite as filler to paperboard production.

1.1.2 Market Overview

With the deterioration of atmospheric conditions, more and more people are concerned about PM2.5. However, lots of people do not know that painting is one of major reasons causing PM2.5. The renovated house under painting hazards should be ventilated for some time before living in. The respiratory protective measures shall be taken during painting. This is only one of the most basic aspects of painting hazards. From another point of view, painting also plays a significant role in causing haze problem. In consideration of indoor and outdoor ambient air environment, water-based paint with the representation of diatom ooze shall replace the organic compounds volatilized paintings.

The application of water-based paint with the representation of diatom ooze can help to eliminate toxic substances such as benzene, toluene, xylene and formaldehyde. Diatom ooze has eight functions such as air purification and humidity regulation, etc. With the development of diatom ooze enterprises and the upgrading of technology, the main properties of diatom ooze are beyond these of paintings. Water will not cause hazards during the volatilizing process. Diatom ooze is also helpful for environmental protection and energy conservation. It has become a common consensus that diatom ooze will eventually replace paint. Fortunately, “Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Action Plan” and other national policies have stated clearly that the promotion and wide use of water-based paint are required. Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Finance and State Administration of Taxation have conducted a joint research on the collection of consumption tax to some special solvent-based coatings in order to promote the development of water-based paint industry with the representation of diatom ooze.

It is one of China’s basic state policies to implement sustainable development strategy and construct ecological and environmental-protection while using low-grade diatomite to make diatom ooze is an important measure to protect environment, save energy, realize comprehensive use of resource and improve environment, also important content to practice sustainable development strategy. In China currently, diatomite for interior wall like diatom ooze is only limited to high-end markets (including construction of 200Yuan per square meter), and will expand to mid-low end market. Nationwide demand has exceeded 6.5 million m2 along with an annual output value beyond 1 billion Yuan by 2015; it is expected to exceed 20 million m2 with an annual output value up to 3 billion Yuan.

Price for diatomite (dry powder with water content of 10%) in the current market: 1500-2200 Yuan/ton. The price will present an increasing trend in the few years to come as diatomite productivity is unable to meet the market need.

Diatom ooze wall materials have many advantages, which are very competitive in the market, especially in the modern cities where people’s living standard is continuously rising. Diatom ooze is the choice of people who are in pursuit of environmental protection. From this point of view, the prospect of diatom ooze enterprises is very considerable.

In conclusion, this project can expect a sound market prospect.

1.1.3 Technical Analysis
