Recently, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Finance, and the State Administration of Taxation jointly issued a revised Notice on the Management Measures for the Recognition of High tech Enterprises, clarifying the eight key areas of national support for high tech and the inclusion of the non-ferrous metal new material industry.
The notice points out that the field of new materials includes metal materials, inorganic non-metallic materials, polymer materials, biomedical materials, and other aspects. Related to the non-ferrous metal industry include clean production and deep processing technology for aluminum, copper, magnesium, and titanium alloys, preparation technology for rare and rare earth metal deep products, preparation and application technology for nano and powder metallurgy new materials, preparation technology for metal and metal matrix composite new materials, and the preparation of new material mother alloys/raw materials for aircraft manufacturing and material technology in aerospace technology, as well as advanced production and processing of new materials.
In the document issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology this time, the proportion of metal new materials in the field of new materials is relatively large. It is reported that during the 12th Five Year Plan period, the new material industry has become one of the key areas supported by China for development. The development of strategic emerging industries is an important means to enhance China's national competitiveness, and the new material industry is the cornerstone and crutch of industrial development. At present, China's production of many basic raw materials and industrial products ranks among the top in the world, but some high-performance materials, high-tech materials, and materials and components in the military core field still need to be imported. At the same time as China's manufacturing is transitioning to "China's intelligent manufacturing", the development of important fields such as large aircraft, high-speed trains, and electric vehicles requires breakthroughs in key material technologies.
