L-Lysine: Jilin Meihua advances on 600’000 t/a expansion

2024-06-27 09:09


The Baicheng Industrial Park Ecological Environment Bureau has announced the acceptance of the environmental impact report of the USD 375m and first phase of Jilin Meihua’s next expansion project, reportedly covering a capacity of 600’000 t/a L-Lysine sulfate (80%) and 910'000 t/a Corn processing. Since land transfers and environmental impact procedures are advancing, it is expected to start construction immediately to complete works by June or July 2025, creating about 2’000 jobs.

In August 2017, Meihua Group signed a contract with the People's Government of Baicheng City to build a 3-million-ton corn deep processing project, establishing Jilin Meihua Amino Acid Company. After 6 years of development and four phases of construction, the project has accumulated a total investment of almost USD 1.4bn and an output of 1 million tons of amino acids. It is said to be the world's largest L-Lysine production base.

As Kemiex reported in November 2023, Meihua initially reported about plans to further expand its ‘Principal Economic and Industrial Park’ in phases over the coming three years, including 400’000 t/a feed amino acids and 60’000 t/a Trehalose in phase 1. Phase 2 foresees a production of 300’000 t/a Sodium glutamate (MSG), and phase 3 covers 20’000 t/a Nucleotides.
