Ningxia Established the First New Material Industry Research Institute to Explore the "New Blue Ocean" of Graphene Development

China News Service, Shizuishan, August 11 (Li Peishan) "What we have to solve is the technical problems in the research and development of high-end tires, so that large aircraft tires can be put into production in Ningxia as soon as possible." August 11, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing Graphene Research Academician Liu Zhongfan, Dean of the Academy, said after visiting the production workshop of Ningxia Shenzhou Tire Co., Ltd. that the development of Ningxia's graphene industry has a broad "blue ocean".

Beijing Graphene Research Institute

On the same day, the Ningxia Branch of the Beijing Graphene Research Institute was inaugurated in Shizuishan, Ningxia. This is the first research institute in Ningxia that focuses on the research and development of new materials industry.
The new material industry is highly intensive in technology, strong in production and markets, and has good development prospects. Its research and development level and industrialization scale have become important indicators of a country’s economic, social development, technological progress and national defense strength. New materials represented by rare metals, carbon-based materials, new chemical materials, photovoltaic materials, energy storage materials, and semiconductor materials are one of the five leading industries in Ningxia and have contributed a lot to industrial transformation and economic development. There are currently more than 100 new material manufacturers in Ningxia. In 2019, the industrial output value was nearly 48 billion yuan, accounting for about 10% of the total industrial output value of the region. The production capacity and output of some industries are ranked in the forefront of the world or the country. Graphene has broad application prospects in materials, energy, electronic information, biomedicine, computers, aerospace and other fields, and is known as the "king of new materials." In July 2019, China's first version 3.0 graphene production line was launched in Yinchuan. The industry believes that Ningxia's graphene industry has great potential for development.
Beijing Graphene Research Institute is one of the earliest institutions engaged in graphene research and development. It has gathered a group of well-known experts and scholars at home and abroad, and has a number of advanced research results in the field of graphene. In 2019, the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region government and the Department of Science and Technology will dock with the Beijing Graphene Research Institute to promote cooperation with the Ningxia local company Shenzhou Tire Company, and facilitate the establishment of the Ningxia Branch of the Beijing Graphene Research Institute.

Multiple Cooperation Models

"The first domestically-made radial tire developed by Shenzhou Tire Co., Ltd. has officially rolled off the assembly line last year. This is exciting news. There is a good foundation here. The research institute we have established is not only focused on the research and development of traditional The more important thing for scientific research projects is to create a new path for research and development, and to replicate and promote them in more areas of scientific and technological cooperation between the East and the West." Liu Zhongfan said.
It is reported that since 2017, Ningxia has carried out scientific and technological cooperation with 8 provinces and cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Jiangsu, and 8 institutions including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, etc., and has formed a "1+N" multiple cooperation model. It has implemented nearly 600 scientific and technological cooperation projects between the East and the West, and has achieved innovative breakthroughs in some key technical fields, forming a group of "single champions" in scientific and technological innovation. Guo Bingchen, director of the Ningxia Science and Technology Department, said that the Ningxia Branch of the Beijing Graphene Research Institute is a new opportunity for the development of the new material industry in Ningxia in the East-West cooperation project. Accelerate the application of technology and applicable achievements to enterprise product research and development and industrial innovation and development, research and develop new products, increase added value, create new models, and support and lead the development of Ningxia's new material industry toward high-end and integration.
