Taishan Fiberglass Inc, a subsidiary of China National Materials Co Ltd (Sinoma), started the construction of an alkali-free fiberglass production line in Shandong on 9 June 2008. Two new lines, with an estimated annual output of 160,000 tons will be built, mainly to produce reinforced fiber, electric cloth and spun yarn products. The first 80,000-ton production line will enter service in the 1Q 2009, followed by the second line in the 2Q. The project will use oxy-fuel firing technology which reduces nitrogen oxides and therefore saves energy and reduces emissions, said Sinoma, adding that it will make great efforts to establish the most advanced glass fiber product line in the world.
