I. overall requirements

(1) guiding ideology. Under the guidance of Xi Jinping's thought on Socialism with Chinese characteristics in the New era, we should thoroughly implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions on Hebei work, fully implement the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and the 10th Plenary session of the Ninth Provincial CPC Committee, adhere to the general tone of seeking progress in the midst of stability, adhere to the new concept of development, take supply-side structural reform as the main line, take the extension chain as the core, ensure the upstream, do the middle reaches, and expand the lower reaches. We will vigorously improve the quality and level of the development of iron and steel industry chain clusters, and further promote the upgrading of process technology and equipment, product quality, energy conservation and emission reduction, and circular economy. We will accelerate Hebei's iron and steel industry to move towards the middle and high end of the global industrial chain, value chain and supply chain.

(2) basic principles.

Adhere to innovation-driven, highlight the leadership of science and technology. We should put innovation and development in an important position, strengthen the innovation status of enterprises as the main body, improve the collaborative innovation system of industry, university and research, deploy innovation chains around the industrial chain, and allocate resources around the innovation chain. we will speed up the formation of an iron and steel industry system and development model supported by innovation-driven.

Adhere to structural adjustment and highlight the diversity of products. We will unswervingly promote the structural adjustment and layout optimization of the iron and steel industry, promote the joint reorganization, transformation and upgrading of enterprises, and comprehensively promote the development of the iron and steel industry in the direction of large-scale enterprises, modernization of technology and equipment, diversification of production processes and diversification of downstream products.

Adhere to interconnection and highlight intelligent manufacturing. Taking the comprehensive integration of informationization, digitization and intelligence of the production process as the starting point, the research and development of the key intelligent technologies of the whole process with independent intellectual property rights as the breakthrough, and relying on the system platform and application demonstration, omni-directional and multi-level to improve the intelligent level of the iron and steel industry.

We will continue to save energy and reduce emissions and highlight green development. On the basis of basically completing the transformation of ultra-low emissions, we will further improve the management level of environmental protection and energy conservation, strengthen the management of unorganized emissions, constantly optimize the structure of raw fuel, and actively develop and promote green steel in the whole life cycle. we will build a new pattern of harmonious development between iron and steel manufacturing and society.

(3) Development goals. Focus on strengthening the mid-stream production chain, stabilizing the upstream supply chain, extending the downstream application chain, and building a modern iron and steel industry system with moderate scale, advanced equipment, diversified products, reasonable layout, first-class environmental protection and efficient management. to create an iron and steel industry chain cluster with full coverage of Teyoupu products and extended to equipment, green building and consumer steel.

1. Large-scale main equipment. By the end of 2020, all blast furnaces below 1000 cubic meters (except foundry pig iron and special steel enterprises) and converters under 100 tons will be upgraded, and some of the reduced production capacity will be withdrawn. By the end of 2022, we will strive to complete the upgrading and transformation, and build a batch of demonstration blast furnaces and converters of 3000 cubic meters and above.
