China's rare earth industry is changing the situation of "digging and selling soil"

after several years of consolidation, China's rare earth industry finally ushered in a rebound in 2017. At the same time, industrial transformation and upgrading is considered to be the key after the industry rectification

he Weihua, deputy mayor of Baotou City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, the main producer of light rare earth in China, said at the 9th China Baotou rare earth industry forum, "the transformation and upgrading of the rare earth industry has achieved remarkable results and is changing the situation of digging and selling earth." He Weihua said that since the 18th CPC National Congress, the state and local governments have issued a number of supporting policies on the structure and daily maintenance of spring testing machines to promote the transformation and upgrading of the rare earth industry. At present, Baotou has initially formed five industrial chains of rare earth permanent magnet, polishing, hydrogen storage, alloy and catalysis

Gan Yong, academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering and chairman of the forum, also said that at present, rare earth is developing from the energy system to eight trends: diversified and reasonable, green and clean, safe and efficient, and sustainable. He hoped Baotou City would make a strategic plan for the rare earth industry

Baotou city can be called the "rare earth capital" of China. The proved industrial reserves of rare earth are 43.5 million tons, accounting for 38% of the world and 83% of China's proved reserves. According to he Weihua, at present, there are 106 rare earth enterprises in Baotou, and 85 new material and terminal application enterprises, forming a complete industrial system of mining, smelting, R & D, deep processing and application. In 2016, Baotou rare earth industry achieved a total industrial output value of 15billion yuan

in the south of Baotou, there is also Baotou National Rare Earth high tech Industrial Development Zone, known as the "Silicon Valley" of China's rare earth industry. This is the only national high-tech Industrial Development Zone named after "rare earth" in China, with a total area of 120 square kilometers and a population of 130000. The output of rare earth permanent magnets in the development zone increased from 3736 tons in 2013 to 16601 tons in 2016, an increase of 344%

the transformation and upgrading of rare earth industry in Baotou began in 2015. In July 2015, the Ministry of industry and information technology and the Ministry of Finance approved the pilot plan for the transformation and upgrading of Baotou rare earth industry, and Baotou was identified as the national pilot city for the transformation and upgrading of rare earth industry. Within three years from 2015, Baotou will receive nearly 1billion yuan of rare earth transformation and upgrading funding support from 33 rare earth projects, and strive to build Baotou into the country's largest rare earth new materials, terminal application technology research and development and industrialization demonstration base by the end of 17 when 20 companies successfully develop green self-cleaning physical refining technology for aluminum alloy melt

the "Baotou rare earth industry transformation and upgrading pilot implementation plan" prepared by Baotou municipal government proposes to increase the domestic market share of Baotou's high-end rare earth magnetic materials, hydrogen storage materials and special alloys from 10%, 12% and 15% in 2014 to more than 30%, 30% and 40% within three years, realize the localization of high-grade rare earth polishing fluid, realize the industrialization of rare earth magnetic refrigeration materials and equipment, and realize the large-scale production of rare earth environmental protection pigments and heat stabilizers, The technical indicators of relevant products have reached or exceeded the domestic advanced level

during this rare earth industry forum, a total of 24 projects were signed, involving five industrial chains and terminal application products of rare earth permanent magnet, catalysis, polishing, alloy and hydrogen storage, with a total investment of 15billion yuan. In addition, on August 28, "Inner Mongolia rare earth new material industrial park" was also unveiled as China's largest market share leader

among the more than 20 enterprises involved in the above contracts, in addition to individual electromechanical companies and rare earth R & D centers, technology companies such as robots, magnetic materials and new materials account for two-thirds, and the signing places include Beijing, Tangshan, Shanghai, Yantai, Shanxi, Baotou and other cities
