Foshan, Guangdong - Hongda Jingu Innovation Technology plans to build 9kT/year waterborne polyurethane leather facility in Foshan, Guangdong.
The project started the first stage of a public environmental impact review, on September 6, said a local government website.
Located at the Datang Park in city's Sanshui Industry Zone, Hongda plans CNY 550m ($78m) investment. The plant is designed to cover 71,400 m2.
The plant will comprise:
- 12kT/year fabric dyeing and finishing;
- 9kT/year slurry-dyed cotton yarn; and,
- 30kT/year stabilised cotton fabric.
The PU leather facility will use the dry method and will consume 378 tonne waterborne PU resin each year. A typical formulation is 30% PU resin ,s 5% acetone and 65% water, said the environmental filing.
The waterborne resin has 5% VOC content, which is in compliance with Foshan's latest environmental regulations.
