V. Progress Arrangement
(I). Conductive agent and anode material for lithium battery:
From January to December in 2015, the related indicators of conductive agent for lithium battery will be determined. A production line of 300 tons will be established and put into production. Based on the existing targeted institutes, efforts are made to further expand applied relations, and to establish a sales system initially.
From January to December in 2016, the annual capacity and sales of 300 tons will be achieved.
From January to December in 2017, the annual capacity and sales of 1,000 tons will be achieved.
In 2018, the annual capacity and sales will be expanded to 5,000 tons gradually with a global market share of 20%.
(II). From June to December in 2015, the R&D and application tests of graphene material used for super capacity, and heat conduction membrane for electronic products such as cellphone will be finished. A corresponding hundred-ton production line will be established with an initial establishment of market application system. From the year of 2016, the production line will be expanded to make a thousand-ton production line and a global marketing system will be formed gradually.
(III). From June to December in 2015, the Company will set up a horizontal cooperation with related military enterprises to jointly research graphene material used in the military and aerospace field such as stealth aircraft, missiles, blackout bomb, conductive printing ink, anti-corrosive paint against high temperature. In 2016, a thousand-ton production and sales system will be established correspondingly.
VI. Financing Introduction
The financing of Phase I is mainly used for a 300-ton production line of graphene material for lithium battery, land and factory for the project and laboratory analytical equipment. It includes in detail: 1. 30 million yuan as construction funds of the production line; 2. In the principle of “One case, One Meeting for High-end Project” by local government, striving for relevant privilege, it is estimated to use 30 million yuan as land fund of 300 mu. 3.15 million yuan for factory and office buildings; 4. 10 million yuan uses for laboratory equipment for research and development; 5. Liquid fund: 10 million yuan. 95 million yuan is required in total.
VII. Benefit Analysis of Expected Outcomes
Comprehensive investment in land, factory and production line can refer to the investment in graphene material for lithium battery. The production cost is 1.5 million/ton, and the future market price is 10 million yuan/ton. If the annual production and sales of 1,000 tons will be achieved until 2018, there will be an output value of 10 billion yuan and gross profit of 8.5 billion yuan.
The potential and important economic significance of graphene quantum dots production technology in the project is that: It is used firstly in the world with important and wide application. And it sets the standard in price.
VIII. Project Development Outlook
The technologies involved in the project have integrated the nano-powder technological achievements of the sponsors in the recent decades. Therefore, they and the related products will enjoy a leading position in the global range in the next 30 years. Up to now there are no related equipment and technologies around the word.
