    New regulations in the coating industry are coming!

    Echemi 2020-09-09

    More than half of 2020 has passed, and statistics show that in the first half of 2020, China's coatings industry has accumulated 123.394 billion yuan in revenue from its main business, a year-on-year decrease of 12.5% compared to the same period last year. The total profit is 8.189 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 9.684 billion yuan. 15.4%. From January to June 2020, my country’s total paint output fell by 5.4% year-on-year, down by 9.4% year-on-year from January to May, and down by 22.8% year-on-year from January to March, showing a strong recovery trend; from January to May, my country’s paint industry Main business income fell 14.9% year-on-year, total profit fell 19.4% year-on-year, and the main business income from January to March fell 26.5% year-on-year, and total profit fell 56% year-on-year. The analysis believes that as safety and environmental protection become more stringent, market supervision will also pay attention to increase, which will force more low-VOC environmentally friendly green products to emerge.
    As environmentally friendly products continue to emerge, policies have also kept up. Recently, on the basis of the "Guiding Opinions on Strengthening Responses to Heavy Pollution Weather to Consolidate Emergency Emission Reduction Measures" (Huanban Qiqihan [2019] No. 648), the Ministry of Ecology and Environment has revised and completed the "Emergency Emission Reduction Technical Guidelines for Key Industries in Heavy Pollution Weather" Revised Edition in 2020)” (Huanban Qiqifahan [2020] No. 340) (hereinafter referred to as the “Technical Guidelines”). This revision expands the scope of performance grading industries, the number of industries involved has increased from 30 last year to 39 this year, and relevant indicators and emission reduction measures have been improved on the basis of last year’s documents, and policies have been formulated for key industries in various regions. The differentiated emission reduction measures provided a reference standard.
    In recent years, some progress has been made in the in-depth pollution control of key industries, including various industries. Under the principle of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment to continue to promote scientific and precise pollution control, it is foreseeable that the implementation of hierarchical management and control of enterprises based on their environmental performance level is the future The trend of environmental protection control.

    Coating production
    Scope of application
    It is suitable for industrial enterprises that manufacture water-based coatings, solvent-based coatings, and powder coatings, excluding synthetic resin manufacturers.

    It is pointed out in the document that powder coating manufacturers must meet the special emission limits of the Air Pollutants Emission Standard for Coatings, Inks and Adhesives Industry (GB 37824-2019), and at the same time realize airtight feeding, and the crushing and grinding processes are equipped with highly efficient and recyclable Dust removal facilities, the proportion of automatic or semi-automatic packaging products> 90%, PM <10mg/m3, can be rated as a leading enterprise.
    note! Leading companies are not affected by weather warnings and can reduce emissions independently. This also means that once a company is rated as a leading company and its peers stop production due to environmental impacts, you can produce! This is of great significance for enterprises to occupy market share.
    Industrial coating
    It is suitable for the coating process or production facilities of the existing industrial sewage disposal units, including the corresponding industry plans separately formulated in the implementation guidelines for the four manufacturing industries of furniture, automobile vehicles, engineering machinery and castings. It is worth mentioning that in the construction machinery coating performance grading index, only the coating method using powder coating is rated as an A-level enterprise, and this is the only one. The second is the water-based, radiation curing coating methods rated as B-level.

    The emission reduction measures are similar to the above, so I won’t go into details here. As can be seen from the industrial coating performance grading index table, A and B enterprises should be required to declare
    Covers wider and more detailed regulations
    The China Building Materials Research Institute participated in the preparation of the "Technical Guidelines". This year, compared with last year, it covers a wider range. "He Jie said.
    In terms of grading indicators, in general, the "Technical Guidelines" stipulate from nine aspects, including energy type, equipment level, pollution control technology, emission limit, unorganized emission, monitoring and control level, environmental management level, transportation mode , Transportation supervision. "Some industries do not cover all of them, and some industries cover more."
    Different from the three levels of A, B, and C last year, most of the 39 industries in the "Technical Guide" classify companies into four levels: A, B, C, and D. He Jie explained that the main reason is to make a slight distinction between the C and D grades, hoping to encourage enterprises to do better as much as possible, and the control measures are also distinguished accordingly. "The requirements for A and B levels are relatively high. We hope that A-level companies will be national benchmarks, representing the most optimized development direction of the industry within a few years, and a relatively high index. Level B is equivalent to a provincial benchmark."
    "The Ministry of Ecology and Environment hopes to cover a wider scope, make more detailed regulations, and avoid'one size fits all'. Companies that do well may not have to stop production and those that do not do well can be gradually upgraded." He Jie told reporters, This is also the Ministry of Ecology and Environment in order to implement accurate pollution control, scientific pollution control, and pollution control in accordance with the law, and play a leading role in the environmental protection and green development of the building materials industry.
    It will be more difficult to reach A-level standards
    1. A-level enterprise:
    Encourage the implementation of emission reduction measures based on actual conditions.


    2. Class B enterprise:
    During the red warning period: the production of solvent-based coatings that did not meet the Technical Requirements for Low Volatile Organic Compounds Coating Products and the water-based coatings production workshops that did not meet national standards, such as batching, premixing, dispersion, and cleaning, were stopped; the use of National IV and The following heavy-duty trucks (including gas) are used for transportation.


    3. C-level enterprise:
    Orange warning period: production of solvent-based coatings that do not meet the Technical Requirements for Low Volatile Organic Compounds Coating Products and water-based coatings production workshops that do not meet national standards, such as batching, premixing, dispersion, and cleaning, will be stopped; the use of National IV and The following heavy-duty trucks (including gas) are used for transportation.
    Red warning period: the production of VOCs-related discharge processes such as batching, pre-mixing, dispersion, cleaning, blending, melting, mixing, filtering, adjustment, filling, etc. will be suspended; the use of heavy-duty trucks (including gas) in National IV and below will be stopped for transportation.


    4. D-level enterprise:
    Yellow and above warning period: production of VOCs-related discharge processes such as batching, premixing, dispersing, cleaning, blending, melting, stirring, filtering, adjustment, filling, etc. will be discontinued; the use of heavy-duty trucks (including gas) under National IV and below for transportation will be stopped .
    In the future, the emission reduction of the process will be strengthened
    In addition, in order to improve the management level of enterprises, the "Technical Guidelines" also added regulations on the level of environmental management.
