The ethylene industry is the leader of the petrochemical industry. Its production scale, output and technical level mark the development level of a country's petrochemical industry. At the end of 2022, my country's ethylene production capacity surpassed that of the United States for the first time, becoming the world's largest country in ethylene production capacity. Not only that, my country's ethylene production capacity is still at the peak of capacity expansion. The start of construction of the Zhenhai project will effectively promote Sinopec Zhenhai Base to accelerate the construction of a "world-class, high-tech, integrated" green petrochemical base, and help my country further consolidate its position as the world's largest ethylene producer and consumer.
