Red Sun approves 20,000 tons per year glufosinate project 09-29-2019

The Red Sun Company made an announcement on September 15th, saying that Chongqing World Village Company was assessed by the Bureau of Ecological Environment in Changshou district, Chongqing province and has been approved to produce 20,000 tons of glufosinate each year, according to the environmental impact statement. The project, which has completed procedures for legal constructions in China, is estimated to build the first set of facility before June 1st, 2020. Glufosinate, which is an internationally recognized pesticide, has now been the best chemical to replace glyphosate which is globally used as a major herbicide.

Glufosinate is a nonselective herbicide found in nature that is effective against a wide range of weed species and that has gained recent popularity. Compared with traditional herbicides, glufosinate is more effective, environmentally friendly, and kills a wider range of weeds. Additionally, glufosinate has a high market demand and a wide base of eager consumers. Furthermore, it has made a significant impact on both domestic and international markets. Glufosinate is internationally recognized as the herbicide that is most likely to replace glyphosate in being the most widely used nonselective herbicide in the world.


Glufosinate to revolutionize worldwide herbicide industry

The herbicide company Red Sun has spent ten years studying how to transform traditional herbicides using digital technology and biochemical technology, resulting in glufosinate being a groundbreaking result of the study. The development of glufosinate has also become one of the biggest projects in the company. In the coming five years, Red Sun will also change the environmental and chemical pesticide production lines into world-leading pesticide production lines with digital and biochemical technology.

The technology from the company contains the following advantages:

First, it is energy-saving and environmentally friendly. It creates a lower amount of exhaust, waste water, and industrial residue which can be disposed easily with the use of glufosinate.

Second, the cost of glufosinate is low and it is very competitive in the market.  It is most likely to replace glyphosate as the most widely used nonselective herbicide in the world.

Third, the use of glufosinate in the company’s biochemical technology is economical and effective.

Fourth, Red Sun’s digital technology can produce 20,000 tons of glufosinate each year.

Fifth, glufosinate processes produce a relatively low amount of carbon and do not pose a risk to human health and the environment.

Sixth, the market demand for glufosinate is high, and it is estimated that the global demand will reach 200,000 tons within three years.

Additionally, when the company project is successfully completed, the project will provide a great contribution to the world economically, socially, and environmentally.

When Red Sun’s glufosinate project is successfully completed, it will help increase the company’s earnings and maintain the company’s stable development. While conducting this project, Red Sun will strictly abide by the rules set forth in the Environmental Impact Agreement issued by the Bureau of Ecological Environment of Chongqing. Furthermore, the company will take any measures necessary to seize this opportunity to revolutionize the worldwide herbicide industries and markets.
