600-ton white steam filature (Phase II)
Updated: 2014-09-03

This project calls for adding eight automated filature production lines to eight existing ones. The white steam filature production capacity is expected to double to 600 tons per year. This involves building a new plant and adding 61 machines on a 231-million-square-meter space, and closing down the old plant when the new one goes online. The area has seen good development in recent years, with local mulberry fields covering 25.3 square kilometers and expected to more than double in size by 2015, and to produce more than 5,000 tons of silkworms. Mulberry leaf and silkworm cultivation has been industrialized, producing good quality silk. Now that people are looking for ways to return to nature, silk has become wildly popular as a green, environmentally friendly product. Silk fiber globally accounts for only about 0.175 percent of all fibers and cannot meet the increasing market demand.

European and American market demands are stable for the moment, and South America, the Middle East, South Africa and eastern Europe have become new silk consumers. Total silk consumption has stayed around 60,000 tons per year, with China’s per capita consumption less than 0.25 meters, which means market potential. And, with the rapid development of China’s economy and agriculture, mulberry and silkworm farms have shifted from the east to the west, with the Commerce Ministry supporting east-to-west industrial migration in 2006, and 200 silk facilities, each covering at least 6-square kilometers, have been built in central and western areas. The process uses cutting-edge technology and a well-developed market network, with 50 silk processing companies. They also support 30 innovative companies that integrate R&D and production. Meanwhile, the ministry has encouraged 20 famous brands and an international market network.

Guangxi’s sericulture operates on an industrialized business model with mulberry plantations, silkworm breeding, filature and trade and it can produce 190,000 filatures and 10,000 tons of white steam filatures. And the new China-ASEAN Free Trade Area will provide even more development opportunities and markets for Guangxi silk.

This project is expected to cost 117.27 million yuan, with 57 million yuan for construction work, and is expected to generate 150 million yuan in annual output value and 137 million in sales.
