haicang, Xiamen PX project site (pictures from the network)
for Xiamen, haicang bridge built last century remained a combed the landscape, through the spectacular steel suspension cable, dongdu port vessels gathered under sunny days can be seen.
If you drove from the bridge to the South of the haicang district industrial park, only 15 kilometers away.
haicang petrochemical industrial park in the South, starting from the mid 90, has been the cradle of the petrochemical industry in Xiamen area by three companies of the Taiwanese xianglu group sits, after the site was selected as xianglu PX project, expected annual production amounts to 80 billion.
anti-PX storm June 2007 Xiamen Island, Xiamen City Government defer PX project and moved to Zhangzhou gulei peninsula ended the project. 6 years in the past, haicang bridge has been closely combined within the island and haicang, Xiamen haicang petrochemical industrial park in the South still harbored prejudice.
original PX production projects remain abandoned, which was built to be modern is said to be "cultural industries". PX chrysotile village is just across the street from the site, a village Committee staff member told the newspaper reporter recalled, opposite Heath has been "cut four or five times", after each cut in there and not move, "to cut again the next year."
abandoning six years of
haicang, September is still hot, xianglu petrochemical Enterprise continental stone gates of the MCA youth and the South Sea t-crossing is very spectacular.
xianglu petrochemicals remained in normal operation, PX project on Nanhai Road site was derelict.
Jiangxi in petrochemical factory on the edge of the old age runs auto parts repair, he pointed to the South reporter said that since PX moved away, here is a container yard. This exactly 6 years old age, "was just getting started, and has become a flat, move out, here, let people improvise yards. "
the spring of 2007, when when the Xiamen PX project on the island dispute Beijing, this site is not broke ground on the way of South China Sea is calm. Because it ain't got away, so there has been no movement until the end of last year, a group of government officials and executives came to Nanhai Road xianglu group "Ribbon", heard of the old age is to build cultural industry Park, a lot of people.
according to the November 2011 news, "Government of haicang district contract with xianglu cultural industries limited xianglu cultural industrial park project, the first phase of investment reached 28.3 billion yuan. "According to the report, the cultural industry Park, will include shopping, vacation, Convention and exhibition, health, medical, and so on.
cultural industry Park in two years is still intact plants. Xianglu group, a person familiar with the staff told this reporter, thinking and planning is there, but has not yet started. "The city asked each district culture and tourist projects, haicang district may feel in this land, representative enough to shock, so get yourself out of it. "
near the village has been a piecemeal removal. Laoji speculation, perhaps, the Government said construction started.
warm House feel with old villager Wen bin country record. "Farmers know about chemistry stuff, is the island just said this stuff is toxic only toxic. "
warm village has a thousand years of history, and many houses left empty beam, says" remove ". Village of longan fruit off the tree and no one picked up, only village temple records local xiangsu.
until the controversy on the PX project, Wen Binguo know this land prior to commencement of the project, turned out to be "toxic".
main factory has become a parking lot
had known "toxic", Wen why village still standing so far?
Sun Wen clings like a desert island from the North-East of the village of bread around the abandoned construction site. Offices of the village Council, who spoke on condition of anonymity told reporters: "was pioneered a decade ago, was said to be torn down, was built a PX, side split. "She said, due to the relocation compensation fail, in recent years down to on and off.
warm house demolition, PX site planning, twisty and slow. PX project out of public attention on the p-side plots to cool, about how much the Government's priorities. Currently in the haicang Street in 13 villages, is not opened up like warm houses, and more than half.
for the next 20 years, villagers told xianglu petrochemical grievances are not reduced. In the evening, the edge of the village of xianglu petrochemical chimney begins black gas emissions, "sour and smelly." Wen Binguo says xianglu petrochemicals when he first moved here, for poor local, is certainly good news, but the happy days later turned to complain.
in addition to health hazards, Wen Binguo, and xianglu petrochemical neighbors did not bring any immediate benefits, xianglu petrochemical environmental protection fees annually, the villagers also didn't get a penny.
container yard South Sea side, stacked stone is a piece of vacant land. Modest several blocks on the side of the warehouse and a trailer, in addition to barking, can't hear the human voice. Car to car, a logistics company boss told this reporter on the phone, the company rented space to park here.
This formed by space, storage and parking area which is planning "a total investment of 10.8 billion yuan, annual production capacity of 800,000 tons, the output value of 80 billion dollars" PX project host plant.
logistics team boss last year Chen Jisheng "managed" this land, stationed in a four-story main warehouse, logistics warehouses this xianglu PX project. A person stationed in the empty building, the rest rent space to some logistics companies, "token for a small rent".
before Chen Jisheng, empty warehouse for four years, has almost become a scrap House. Inside the wire, glass, fire-fighting equipment were evacuated by pickpockets. On the open space in front of the building and nearby villages had cattle, types of cuisine, "one last year Xiang Lu bosses got angry when she came to, also reported to the police. "Chen Jisheng said.
due to carrier xianglu petrochemicals PTA (purified Terephthalic acid) products, business partners, Chen Jisheng xianglu warehouses. Now, haicang area, some large parts of the mine abandoned stone pile to the side of the open space, "now that the Government did not say to use this land, but as long as they demolished, we meet at any time. "
Chen Jisheng is rather embarrassing, it is worth doing in the building repairs and maintenance. Stock in the warehouse even the cement staircase handrails were removed by pickpockets, "at least xianglu 5 million made up of. "
However, Chen Jisheng also worry that if paid repairs, the Government quickly confiscated. "Also have a difficult time here, every night after 8 o'clock factory gas not treated, directly, taste very pungent. "
Chen Jisheng has passed through Xiamen xianglu Grand Hotel Hall seen from the Government's future plans show, know xianglu petrochemical businesses of the group will eventually be moved. "But industrial land into commercial use, minimum environmental standards before it. "He believes that xianglu relocation of the Group's petrochemical business doesn't happen overnight," these plants and facilities will be gradually moved to Zhangzhou gulei, how fast. "
" Petro-go culture "
last summer, a" petrochemical complex in southern Xiamen will become a cultural base "the news was carried through the local media in Xiamen. According to this article, but had withdrawn from the PX project, xianglu petrochemical business group as a whole will also withdraw from Xiamen, southern petrochemical industrial zone will take ten years to complete the transformation of the cultural tourism industry.
check out our reporter, presented in December 2009, "Xiamen haicang district planning of southern adjustment programmes", the film features "middle and lower petrochemical industry" adjusted to the "port industry and the logistics base", belong to the second class land for industrial and logistics. This is then adjusted to the second of three.
in 2010, Xiamen opened an industrial land use change to service channels, but the file scope higher demands on enterprise, haicang southern regions in transition, companies may not be able to meet the requirements. In this regard, the Xiamen municipal party Committee in 2012 between the DAB has put forward topics, South of the haicang, recommended the introduction of economies in transition on favourable terms, extended enterprise-wide.
haicang district in its reply, the Government said that "along with the relocation of the PX project, haicang petrochemical industry chain in the South could not be further extended, xianglu Dragon Group's three existing businesses relocation became inevitable, haicang layout should not be other chemical projects in the South. "
Xiamen municipal party Committee of the DAB, however the above subjects, haicang district, the head of the Board a Director surnamed Ho declined a request for an interview with this reporter, saying" it was a long time ago, and now is very sensitive to this land in the city. "
in keeping with this plan, MCA youth's xianglu group three chemical companies South of the road, as well as the PX project will be transformed into commercial sites. To this end, xianglu group is committed to the establishment of the "Xiang Lu cultural industry co., Ltd."
When newspaper reporters try to find this company, and found that it just looked up on the card, no entity and their operationalization xianglu real estate development co., Ltd.
Wang Lan tells the reporter, Marketing Director of the company, the project has been a District Government in haicang, a Vice President of the company and engagement, there is no maturity to the publicly available information.
"the more detailed stuff, now also in planning. Large volume project requires a very long planning times, media publicity may be indicative of something. "Wang Lan said.
Wang Lan said, as a company, to consider from petrochemical to input-output ratio in the process of cultural transformation, "Chinese cultural industries phase transformation in cultivation," so more carefully.
haicang district in the written materials provided by the Government to this reporter also mentioned that in the Xiamen PX project cancelled a few years after, under the influence of market supply and demand, xianglu tenglong group "are presently experiencing temporary difficulties".
material also mentions that "the Xiamen PX project canceled after chemical plants around big government now make use of reserve land was put on the agenda, but that plan is not imminent, must be considered the industrial structure, economic, social, and environmental impact, and so on. "
Xiamen municipal propaganda department director Fang Junze told this reporter, now South of the haicang district's overall plan has been incorporated into this year 's" the beautiful Xiamen "strategic planning will consider at the municipal level.
twisting fall in the price to go up
since 1995, Taiwan's xianglu spinning fibers into haicang since has been committed to the first image is set in the petrochemical industry, haicang district, Xiamen. In 2003, referred to as single line capacity in the world's biggest PTA producer —— xianglu petrochemicals formally gone into operation, the Government said in a statement its "accelerated the haicang investment zone, petrochemical industry chain form".
PTA also settled let PX put on the agenda, as a PTA PX 90% of upstream raw materials are imported from abroad. Xianglu group, once the PX production enterprises can absorb cost PX international prices on their own; haicang district would attract downstream industries settled in.
haicang, CMC has said in local media, haicang petrochemical bases are focused on planning, one of the largest petrochemical base in Fujian province, have been incorporated into the national development of petrochemical market.
from 2004, the national development and Reform Commission approved by 2007 two pre-session, haicang PX project in promoting green lights all the way until 2007, two conferences, 105 members of the joint letter to calm, removal of proposal to terminate.
by this proposal led by Academician Wang Xun pointed out that the Xiamen PX project plant less than 1.5 km away from residential areas recently, in the project 5-kilometer within a radius of haicang district population of over 100,000 people, 10-kilometer radius covers the whole of Xiamen Western sea area and most of the Jiulong River estuary.
due to the PX potential explosion and leakage risks, Wang Xun proposed projects such as relocating in less densely populated, more remote areas. Xiamen island in the proposal set off a three-month operation against PX. Until the end of the year, representatives of 49 members of the public into the municipal government held the "public forum", more than 40 people remained strongly opposed to PX, this event in the "victory of the people" in the high end.
afterwards, action against PX is the real player in various real estate. Haicang shitang living quarters from the PX in-situ 5 km around the road, residents in the area told this reporter, in 2007, when house prices generally fell to 1000 Yuan. South of the haicang's biggest residential area "future Beach" house prices have fallen to 6,000 yuan per square meter, now average reached 14,000 yuan.
Xiamen environmental NGO "Green Cross" Director, Department of chemistry, Xiamen University Professor Wang Guangguo told this reporter said, "is actually a result of the complex interweaving of interests, not just of public protest. "
Wang Guangguo said that PX-situ land, xianglu Group had originally agreed, the rent for a pharmaceutical factory to do drug testing, and later to PX project settled on anti-PX from the above pharmaceutical research.
in any case, the citizens of Xiamen, it was then considered typical model of social practice, Southern Weekly's 2007 man of the year award to the Xiamen residents. Wang Guangguo told reporters that even after all these years in the past, this matter remains the local people's scars.
xianglu group in petrochemical gradually disappeared from the general trend of haicang, touched the stone in transition. Wang Lan told this reporter had an analogy: xianglu test the waters first project for culture "Minnan town" from the project has been 8 years and is still under construction, "Xiang Lu industrial park of culture volume is 10 times".
no longer involved in the Xiamen PX project has now moved to Zhangzhou gulei. In July this year, gulei PX flare-up occurred during the test phase of the project, this reporter found in a local interview, in this narrow, blocked, traditional abalone farming for a living on a peninsula, PX is also changing the lifestyles of local fishermen.
xianglu petrochemical enterprises in gulei new apricot Muramasa faces demolition, stopped in the village sanitation, rampant insect flies. Villagers described the PX to the reporter: "this is Xiamen should not, because of the backward, villagers also opposed it. "
