Zhejiang Research Institute of Chemical Industry Ltd. (ZCIRI for short) is the largest R&D institute in Zhejiang at present. We are a support organization for the National Engineering Technology Research Center for ODS Substitutes, National South Agrochemical Creation Center’s Zhejiang Base, Yangtze River Delta Silicone Research Center, Zhejiang Fluorine Chemical Engineering Technology Research Center and Zhejiang Province Chemical Products Quality Inspection Station accredited by the National Lab. ZRICI possesses a National Key Lab for Fluorine-containing Greenhouse Gas Replacement, Control and Treatment approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology, a Postdoctoral Workstation for Scientific Research approved by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.
ZCIRI mainly researches substitutes for CFCs and Halon, fine fluorine chemicals, new fluorine-containing agrochemicals, fine and special chemicals, provides horizontal technical services, including chemical product analysis and testing, biological testing, safety evaluation, etc.
At present, ZCIRI possesses 112,000㎡ lab building. In terms of fluorine chemical engineering research, we have labs for new substitutes, gas phase catalysis, catalytic hydrogenation, electronic gases, new refrigerants, membrane materials containing fluorine, new energy materials, fine fluorine chemical engineering, element fluorination, etc. In terms of new agrochemical research, we have labs for molecular design, custom-made synthesis, chiral synthesis, biological activity assays, safety evaluation, etc. In terms of analysis and detection, we have labs for R&D, analysis, hazardous chemical identification, standard setting, GLP, etc. Our labs are equipped with more than 1,000 pieces/sets of various globally advanced scientific research equipment. We have a large group of advanced analytical and testing instruments, such as the nuclear magnetic resonance, chromatograph-mass spectrometer, element analyzer, infrared spectrometer, high-level gas-liquid chromatograph, etc.
In the past more than 60 years, our company has undertaken more than 650 national and provincial vertical scientific research topics, made more than 360 scientific and technological achievements and obtained 189 various awards of provisional and ministerial level and above, including 16 awards for National Conference on Science, National Invention and National Scientific and Technological Progress.
In recent years, aiming to “enhance the innovation capacity, lead the industry development, create a first-class R&D institution in China”, firmly sticking to the development strategy of “new materials, new technologies, new applications, new services”, focusing on fluorine chemical engineering, agrochemical and new fine chemical engineering, ZCIRI has sped up innovation, research and development, become an important guarantee to support Sinochem lan tian fluorine chemical engineering industry’s sustainable development.
