On May 18, the 1-million-ton high-grade packaging paper project commissioning ceremony was held in Guangdong Shanying. Affected by the COVID pandemic, Wu Mingwu, Chairman of Shanying International Holdings Co., Ltd, together with members of senior management team and heads of HQ centers witnessed the ceremony via video connection.
On September 28, 2020, Guangdong Shanying inaugurated the high-grade packaging paper project with an annual output of 1 million tons and simultaneously started the construction of two of the world’s most advanced paper production lines, together with raw material and finished product storage and environmental protection. The project was designed and constructed in accordance with industry 4.0 standards. It is acknowledged that the capacity of Guangdong Shanying will be greatly scaled up upon the completion of the project.
In his speech, Chairman Wu extended his warm welcome and sincere gratitude to all the leaders and guests attending the ceremony and to friends from all walks of life who have been supporting the project for a long time. He introduced that following the corporate philosophy of “Ecological Shanying. Built to last”, the project has adopted high efficiency and energy saving equipment as well as the waste water treatment and recycling system. The waste gas generated by papermaking will be used for power generation to truly realize a green and pollution-free mill. The PM52 put into production was designed and constructed in accordance with industry 4.0 standards. The world’s most efficient and energy-saving advanced equipment have been introduced to make the whole manufacturing process intelligent, digital, ecological, green and pollution-free.
Mr. Xu Xiaoxiong, Deputy Secretary of Municipal Party Committee and Mayor of Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province, stated that this project of Shanying International is a model of industrial investment promotion, and enterprise capital increase and production expansion in Zhaoqing, which will create about 600 jobs when reaching its designed capacity. The in-depth coordination between Shanying International and the adjacent CHN Energy Zhaoqing Power Plant will facilitate comprehensive utilization of resources and maximize benefits, well representing the advocacy of circular economy and green development in Zhaoqing. It is believed that the operation of 1-million-ton high-grade packaging paper project in Guangdong Shanying will inject new momentum for Zhaoqing to accelerate the construction of a new manufacturing city in the western Greater Bay Area.
Wu Mingwu said, it is expected that Guangdong Shanying will shoulder the mission of “better paper, better life”, have the vision of “being a global leading provider of integrated green solutions that creates long-term value for customers” and become an industry benchmark of energy efficiency through intelligent manufacturing, lean production and digital management, so as to make contribution to China’s commitment of peaking carbon emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality before 2060.
