MIIT begins accepting applications for enterprises to become qualified yellow phosphorus enterprises

According to Phosphorus Industry China Monthly Report 1309 issued by CCM, On Aug. 12, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of People's Republic of China (MIIT) began accepting applications for enterprises to become qualified yellow phosphorus enterprises. The Entry Criteria for Yellow Phosphorus has been in operation since Jan. 1, 2009, and is aimed at obsoleting backwards production technologies and methods, promoting the transformation and upgrading of the domestic yellow phosphorus industry and optimising the distribution of resources. Enterprises must meet the requirements stipulated in the Entry Criteria for Yellow Phosphorus in order to become qualified yellow phosphorus enterprises.  

On Nov. 19, 2012, 36 domestic yellow phosphorus manufacturers were listed as the first group of qualified yellow phosphorus enterprises. They will be continuously monitored as stated in the recent announcement of MIIT. (for more details about the Entry Criteria for Yellow Phosphorus, please refer to P3, Issue 12, Vol. 2: Producers meeting Entry Criteria for Yellow Phosphorus decrease to 36) 

In recent years, some yellow phosphorus manufacturers have made considerable progress and achievements on energy conservation and clean production. These goals are emphasized in the Entry Criteria for Yellow Phosphorus. Professional energy-saving service companies have also played a part in this process.

On May 28, Baokang Chufeng Chemical Co., Ltd. (Baokang Chufeng Chemical), a subsidiary of Xingfa Group, completed its Waste Heat Utilization and Motor System Energy Saving Renovation Project. As a result of this project, Baokang Chufeng Chemical's energy consumption per RMB10,000 output value dropped by 28.2%.

Also, Datang Shidai Energy Conservation Technology Co., Ltd. (Datang Shidai Energy Conservation) obtained three patents on yellow phosphorus exhaust treatment and electricity generation in early August. The three patents are: the "Yellow Phosphorus Exhaust Treatment Purification and Electricity Generation", which uses combustible gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen and methane in yellow phosphorus exhausts to generate electricity; the "Purification Device of Yellow Phosphorus Exhausts"; the "Deep Purification Device of Yellow Phosphorus Exhausts".

Both the Purification Device of Yellow Phosphorus Exhausts and the Deep Purification Device of Yellow Phosphorus Exhausts clean the exhausts with the processing methods of alkali wash and water wash in order to eliminate corrosive substances such as dust, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, phosphorus and fluorine. There is no doubt that these patents will bring Datang Shidai Energy Conservation significant economical, social and environmental benefits. 

The overcapacity of low-purity yellow phosphorus and the shortage of high-purity yellow phosphorus are other major issues that should also be addressed. Yellow phosphorus is an important basic raw material for the fine phosphorus industry. The demand for high-purity yellow phosphorus is growing as a result of the increasing consumption of China's electronic grade phosphoric acid. Methods to address these issues include providing more subsidies or other preferential policies to help accelerate the development of China's high-purity yellow phosphorus and fine phosphorus chemical industries.
