Beijing University of Science and Technology, formerly the Beijing Institute of Iron and Steel, is a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education. It is a national "world-class discipline construction university", a national "211 Project" and "985 Project Advantage Discipline Innovation Platform" construction university. Its metallurgical engineering discipline ranks first in the world and is a national key discipline. Take service users as the center, reduce smelting loss and energy consumption, improve product performance and technical service level; and take the national standard of "green design product evaluation technical specification ultra-high power graphite electrode" as an opportunity to guide production with the concept of green design and green development, form comparative advantages in products and standards, and gain market opportunities. This R & D project focuses on the localization of the whole process of key smelting carbon materials to cope with changes in the business environment, enhance anti-risk capabilities, and ensure long-term stable development; focus on technical routes and basic research, ensure independent development capabilities, and form products, patents, and standards, The achievement of the production-university-research system, research and development results are transformed into actual productivity, concentrate domestic high-quality resources to produce high-quality green products in the international market.
The company's research and development funds accounted for 4.19 of its operating income in 2021 and 6.38 of its operating income in 2022. At present, the company has two Class I intellectual property rights-invention patents declared independently, namely: "a docking device for graphite electrodes" and "a detection device for graphite electrodes", with 13 Class II intellectual property rights-utility model patents. In addition, our company presided over the revision of two national standards: "General Provisions on Packaging, Marking, Storage, Transportation and Quality Certificate of Carbon Materials and Their Products" and "Determination Method of Flexural Strength of Carbon Materials"; participated in the revision of two national standards: "Determination Method of Elastic Modulus of Graphite Electrode" and "Determination Method of Shore Hardness of Carbon Materials", and participated in the revision of two industry standards: "Oil-based needle coke for graphite electrode joints" and "coal-based needle coke for graphite electrode joints", and actively participate in the formulation of relevant national standards in other graphite industries.
5. industry chain supporting indicators
The large-scale ultra-high power produced by Shanxi Juxian Graphite New Materials Co., Ltd. is located in the key link of the industrial chain. At present, the development of China's iron and steel industry has a large proportion of blast furnace-converter and other long-process smelting, high pollution emissions per ton of steel, iron ore and coal consumption, high external dependence on resources and other unbalanced development problems. In order to meet the national "peak carbon emissions in 2030, down 60-65% from 2005; During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, carbon emissions per unit of GDP will be reduced by 18%". The iron and steel industry must bear the brunt of the development path of replacing blast furnace-converter long process smelting with electric arc furnace short process smelting to gradually realize "decarbonization. At present, the graphite electrode market is structurally unbalanced, and there is serious disorderly competition in the low-end market. In particular, large-scale ultra-high power products of φ750mm, φ800mm and above rely heavily on imports. Under the background of intensified global market fluctuations, it is the consensus of downstream iron and steel smelting enterprises to improve smelting efficiency and reduce smelting consumption, while the quality of large-scale ultra-high power graphite electrodes produced by our company is far ahead in the country, it provides strong demand support for large-size ultra-high power graphite electrodes above φ700mm, and plays an important role in "making up the short board.
