Highly educated "second generation" use entrepreneurship to maintain business
News from Su News (Chief reporter Wang Ying in Wujiang District, trainee reporter Zhou Yuelei) "At the end of September this year, about 10 production lines will be put into trial production here to produce lithium iron phosphate, the raw material for lithium batteries." Suzhou Rosen Auxiliary Co., Ltd. Li Zhenglin, general manager of the company, said that as a green energy that conforms to the direction of national industrial development, he is very optimistic about the broad application prospects of lithium batteries. After listening to the lectures of invited experts and professors of the second class of "Creating the Second Generation of Fire Project", he was more determined to make good use of entrepreneurship to hold the industry and promote the transformation and development of traditional enterprises towards new energy and new materials.
Lawson Auxiliary, founded by Li Zhenglin's father, is located in Taoyuan Town, Wujiang. It is an enterprise whose main products are dyes. Li Zhenglin, born in 1990, is a highly educated returnee. After completing his undergraduate studies in the United States, he worked in a local investment financial company for 5 years. "My undergraduate major is chemistry, but at work, I feel that I still need to master some financial knowledge, so I applied for a graduate degree in finance in the United States, and I am still studying." Li Zhenglin said that at the end of 2019, he went home for the New Year. , Affected by the epidemic, he stayed and completed his studies online while taking care of business affairs.
It is more difficult to maintain a business than to start a business. Li Zhenglin told reporters that he had a classmate who was under the tutelage of Goodenough, the father of lithium batteries, and had a lithium battery project in hand. "The crystal shape and particle size of lithium iron phosphate determine the performance of lithium batteries. To make high-performance lithium battery materials, it is necessary to have a deep understanding of nanostructures and strict control of upstream raw materials. Rosen Additives has With more than 40 years of experience in R&D and production of chemical raw materials, it has a good foundation for lithium iron phosphate, and the conversion of some production capacity is precisely to further develop the original enterprise."
In recent years, the state advocates replacing fossil energy with new energy and encourages vigorous development of new energy. A number of industries such as new energy vehicles have been vigorously supported by the state. "The core power source of new energy vehicles is lithium batteries." Li Zhenglin said that in addition to new energy vehicles, the country's current carbon emission peak and carbon neutral schedule have also brought about an explosion of demand for the lithium battery industry. "Wind energy and solar energy are intermittent and uncertain. In order to ensure the balance and continuity of power supply, energy storage has become a key supporting component of wind and solar power generation systems. Large-capacity and cheaper lithium battery energy storage has become a good solution. The space is huge."
Based on this understanding, Li Zhenglin is starting to convert another textile enterprise under his father's name into a lithium iron phosphate production line. Lithium iron phosphate is a kind of lithium battery. It has the characteristics of long battery life, safe use, fast charging, high temperature resistance and large capacity. It is widely used in electric vehicles, solar energy and wind power energy storage equipment. "The production lines will all adopt intelligent and automated management, and the annual output will reach 100,000 tons after full production, and the annual sales will be 2 billion to 3 billion yuan." Li Zhenglin is full of hope for the prospects of lithium iron phosphate.
Learning is expensive to get a teacher, and it is also expensive to get a friend. Li Zhenglin is the class committee member of the second class of "Creating the Second Generation Fire Project", and he especially cherishes this learning opportunity. "I completed my studies from elementary school to high school in Suzhou. I have studied and worked overseas for a long time, so I know very few people in Wujiang. This class is very meaningful to me." Li Zhenglin said, participating in the "Xinhuo Project", It made him have many like-minded friends. "Their manners, ways of dealing with people, and work experience in the workplace are all worthy of my learning."
