Since September, three pieces of news about Shanxi's calcium carbide industry have attracted the attention of the industry. One is that Shanxi will forcibly eliminate 12 backward calcium carbide production enterprises before the end of this year, involving 14 calcium carbide furnaces, with a calcium carbide production capacity of 200,000 tons; second, there are currently only 4 calcium carbide production enterprises in Shanxi Province, and the output of calcium carbide is only less than 200,000 tons. , The operating rate is less than 20%; third, the tight market supply has caused the price of calcium carbide in Shanxi to rise again. At present, the mainstream ex-factory price of first-grade calcium carbide is 3300-3350 yuan/ton, and the high-end price is 3400-3450 yuan/ton. It is expected that under the influence of energy-saving and emission reduction policies in the near future, the tight situation of calcium carbide in various places will continue, and the strong support of PVC factory costs will once again promote the rise of the PVC market. Manufacturers are bullish about the market outlook. Therefore, the calcium carbide market in Shanxi will continue to rise slightly again. . Some experts believe that the elimination of backward calcium carbide production capacity in Shanxi will free up market development space for advanced enterprises.

With the implementation of the national policy to eliminate backward production capacity, a large number of small and medium calcium carbide enterprises will gradually withdraw from the market. The "Notice of the State Council on Further Strengthening the Elimination of Backward Production Capacity" issued in early April this year clearly pointed out that the planned elimination of calcium carbide production capacity in 2010 was 718,000 tons. Shanxi Province, where calcium carbide enterprises are relatively concentrated, accounted for more than 25% of the country's calcium carbide production in the 1990s, making it the largest province in my country's calcium carbide production. In recent years, many small-scale calcium carbide production companies that do not comply with the policy have been forcibly shut down, and the backward calcium carbide production capacity, which accounts for 58% of the total production capacity in Shanxi Province, has been eliminated. As of the end of 2009, there were 43 calcium carbide production enterprises in the province, with a production capacity of 1.4 million tons and an output of 570,000 tons, accounting for 3.8% of the country's total. The position of calcium carbide production in the country has also slipped from the first to the tenth. The production capacity of Shanxi's calcium carbide industry is gradually shrinking, and the output has dropped by 70%.

Expert analysis shows that with the simultaneous increase in the speed and intensity of elimination of backward production capacity, the contradiction of overcapacity in the calcium carbide market has been alleviated to a certain extent. PVC is the largest downstream user of calcium carbide, accounting for more than 75% of the apparent consumption of calcium carbide. In 2010, the slowing of the global financial crisis and the better recovery of the domestic economy drove the consumer demand for PVC, which in turn pushed up the price of PVC, and the annual price even exceeded 9,000 yuan. Shanxi Province, due to frequent power cuts by the electric power sector, and even direct power cuts to calcium carbide enterprises, also severely affected the production of calcium carbide enterprises, reduced the supply of calcium carbide, and stimulated the price of calcium carbide to run at a high level or rise. At present, the calcium carbide required by downstream enterprises such as Taiyuan Chemical Group, Shanxi Sanwei Group, Yushe Chemical Group, Shanxi Synthetic Rubber Group, etc. are all transferred from Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi and other places. Because the raw materials are outside, companies always feel the panic of "short-cooking". Experts predict that the current trial production of the 400,000 tons of calcium carbide PVC project in Shanxi Yushe Chemical and the 200,000 tons of polyvinyl chloride and ion-exchange membrane caustic soda under construction in Shanxi Lu'an will drive the future market supply of Shanxi calcium carbide. Tension and higher prices create conditions. It is estimated that the demand for calcium carbide in Shanxi will exceed 3 million tons in 2015.

In recent years, in order to improve the current serious overcapacity in my country's calcium carbide industry, the state has further increased its structural adjustment efforts. From 2006 to 2009, the country eliminated 2.87 million tons of outdated calcium carbide production capacity, and Shanxi Province accounted for 1.2 million tons; this year, the state requires an additional 718,000 tons to be eliminated, and Shanxi accounted for 205,000 tons. Shanxi recently issued an ultimatum to the companies included in the blacklist of closed and eliminated companies. If outdated production capacity cannot be eliminated on time, a mandatory shutdown will be implemented on September 30, and power supply companies will take mandatory power-off measures. According to reports, there is no calcium carbide production enterprise in Shanxi that has more than 100,000 tons. There are only 10 calcium carbide furnace transformers with a capacity of 25000kVA or more, of which there is only one fully enclosed calcium carbide furnace. By the end of this year, Shanxi Province will eliminate the backward production capacity of calcium carbide to reach 1.4 million tons. According to the national principle of "replacement by equal amount and eliminate backward", Shanxi has made capacity and space for the development of new calcium carbide furnaces. The 1 million tons (400,000 tons) calcium carbide project of Shanxi Yangmei Group, which laid the foundation at the end of last year, and the 500,000 tons/year closed calcium carbide furnace project of Shanxi Leixin, which is currently under construction, are Shanxi's calcium carbide industry speeding up the elimination of outdated production capacity and achieving scientific Major adjustment project of strategic layout. The person in charge of Shanxi Leixin's preparation office said with emotion: "It is precisely because of the elimination of backward projects that we have room for construction. "After these projects are completed, they can meet the demand for calcium carbide in Shanxi's polyvinyl chloride, polyvinyl alcohol, 1,4-butanediol, neoprene rubber and other products, and will speed up the optimization of Shanxi's calcium carbide industrial layout.

As a large province of coal and electricity resources, Shanxi has unique conditions for the development of calcium carbide industry. In an interview with reporters, Li Sanwen, secretary-general of the Shanxi Calcium Carbide Association, pointed out that Shanxi Province proposed to develop acetylene chemical industry in the preparation of the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan", and at the same time further accelerate the adjustment of the calcium carbide industry structure and layout, and strict entry barriers. Promulgated policies to increase efforts to eliminate outdated production capacity, support the adoption of new energy-saving technologies and other measures, and put forward strategic requirements for the re-distribution of the calcium carbide industry to promote the development of the calcium carbide industry in the direction of large-scale, integrated, and park-based industries.
