Innovation Drives High Quality Development

- May 31, 2018-

In 718, we always remember the teachings of "a truly great power, must be in our own hands," and practise the truth of "core technology, key technologies, and work hard on our own." With the rapid development of the world's electronics industry, as the semiconductor industry's "blood" and "food", the production and sales of high-purity electronic gas has been steadily increasing. However, this gas is monopolized by foreign countries, and the market pricing power is in the hands of foreign manufacturers. . In order to crack down on monopolistic crisis and seize market opportunities, in 1981, the Special Gas Engineering Department was established decisively, self-financing R&D funds of more than RMB 3 million, and research on the development of high-purity nitrogen trifluoride specialty gases and their production processes were successfully developed. The high-purity nitrogen trifluoride electronic specialty gas fills the domestic gap and is included in the national "key new products" and the national "Torch Plan". It has built a production line with an annual output of 300 tons. The product has succeeded in almost all semiconductor, liquid crystal and solar energy industries in China. The application broke the monopoly of foreign technology, completely replaced imports, and exported to the United States, Japan, France, Germany, Singapore and other developed countries. According to incomplete statistics, the accumulated foreign exchange savings of approximately 4 billion U.S. dollars for the country in the past 10 years have effectively supported the sustained and healthy development of the national semiconductor and LCD panel industries. 


Faced with gratifying achievements, the 718 scientific and technical personnel did not stop, but actively tracked the frontier technology of the international fluorochemical industry, stepped up the pace of exploring new technologies to research and develop new products, and successively launched projects to develop tungsten hexafluoride, high-purity helium, The research and development of more than 20 kinds of high-purity specialty gases such as trifluoromethanesulfonic acid series products have invested more than 100 million yuan in succession, and independently developed tungsten hexafluoride, xenon gas, trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, trifluoromethanesulfonic anhydride, etc. Products, and applied for 34 patents, authorized 18, all for invention patents. At present, all these products currently involve more than 40 key core technologies and are all at the international advanced level.


Secretary of the CSPC Party Committee and Chairman Hu Wenming visited the special gas project several times in 718 to emphasize the necessity of localization of integrated circuit materials, and made special instructions: to accelerate scientific and technological innovation, industrialization, and project establishment, Provide solid technical support for the implementation of national science and technology strategy and make new and greater contributions to economic and social development.
