"He" soda ash the company produced was awarded the "National Renowned Product Certificate" in 2003.
Taking advantage of the south Sichuan's abundant bittern and gas resources, HCI has increasingly developed into the largest comprehensive basic chemical raw materials production base in west China in the past 40-50 years. The company is one of top 10 soda ash and caustic soda manufacturers in China and the largest sodium bicarbonate manufacturer in Asia. In recent years, the company has devoted it efforts to further develop a series products in both width and depth on the basis of soda ash and caustic soda production, the products mix is gradually sophisticated and forming a basic chemicals prodction with soda ash and caustic soda as its representatives, fine chemicals with chloromethanes as its representative, and pharmaceutical chemicals with medical raw materials as it representative, by which the group's capability is improving rapidly.
The company is capable of producing more than 40 types of chemicals e.g. soda ash, caustic soda, chloromethanes, ammonium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, feed additives, compound and mix fertilizer, bulk grug, finished drug, polyphenylene sulphide, paint etc.with annual capacity of over 1,400,000 Ton, which is widely used in the light industry, chemical, pharmaceutical, textiles, construction materials, metallurgical, and food processing industry.
