Hebei Veyong Constructing 1,000-Ton Glufosinate Facility
China’s Hebei Veyong launched construction of its 1,000-ton glufosinate facility on Sept. 1, following its announcement on August 20 that the project was approved by ENN Ecology Holding Ltd.
At a meeting to acknowledge the launch, general manager of Hebei Veyong, Mr. Fan Zhaohui and vice president of ENN Group, Mr. Zhang Qing, put forward the specific requirements for the process.
“The 1,000-ton glufosinate project is not only the key action for Hebei Veyong’s medium and long-term development strategy, but also the core project for transformation and upgrading of product structure in Hebei Veyong,” the company said in a statement on the Chinese Crop Protection Industry Association website. “It will promote the future development strategy of Hebei Veyong.” In addition, another plant with 3,000-ton glufosinate capacity is already under construction.
As one of the earliest Chinese manufacturers of glufosinate, Hebei Veyong moved to a new plant in 2012, and added a 300-ton-capacity facility to its existing 150-ton facility. The glufosinate project represents a breakthrough on technology promotion and environmental upgrades, it said.
