    Ma Guoqiang, director of the Lithium Battery Materials Center of Sinochem Blue Sky Group, pointed out in his speech that under the "dual carbon" goal, new energy lithium batteries, as clean energy sources, will surely expand their market capacity.
    It is expected to reach 4% of the current market capacity in 2025.
    Times more

    Since lithium batteries will have higher requirements for energy density, safety, cost and temperature in the future, new systems such as solid-liquid hybrid batteries and sodium-ion batteries will be spawned, which will affect the carbonate solvents for lithium batteries such as dimethyl carbonate.

    Ethyl methyl carbonate is the "dark horse" of the electrolyte solvent, which can increase the energy density and discharge capacity of the battery, and at the same time enhance the safety of the battery and prolong its service life.
    It has broad application prospects

    At present, the demand for ethyl methyl carbonate in the electrolyte solvent of lithium batteries is increasing, but the traditional sodium methoxide catalyst generates a large amount of hazardous waste

    Professor Xiao Wende of Shanghai Jiaotong University predicts that the global demand for battery-grade solvents in 2025 is estimated to be about 1.
    87 million tons, of which the demand for battery-grade solvents in China is about 805,000 tons, with a compound growth rate of 35%

    Mainly dimethyl carbonate (DMC), propylene carbonate (PC), ethylene carbonate (EC), and ethyl methyl carbonate (EMC), the demand is growing rapidly and the prospects are promising

    The petrochemical industry is currently in a critical period of transformation and upgrading, and it is also a new starting point for the development of China's carbonate industry

    Cui Xuejun, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of the China Chemical Industry News Co.

    Yu Haiming, general manager of Shandong Shida Shenghua Chemical Group Co.
    , Ltd.
    , said that the company is gradually moving into the fields of new energy and new chemical materials.
    While strengthening its main carbonate solvent, it also horizontally expands lithium hexafluorophosphate, electrolyte special additives, and Carbon anode and other products

    In 2021, the company will deepen the new energy industry chain and actively expand its downstream business, officially starting the strategic transformation from a one-stop electrolyte material supplier to an electrolyte + material integrated platform service provider
