SMM: on Sept. 2, the environmental information disclosure platform of Shanghai enterprises and institutions showed that the environmental impact assessment report on the early start-up project of new models of Tesla's Shanghai super factory has been filed with the Shanghai Port area Development and Construction Management Committee, which means that the Shanghai super factory will start the preparatory work for the production of Model Y.

According to the EIA report, the planning EIA for the early start-up project of the new model has been carried out and has passed the review of the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau. The construction period is expected to be six months and the completion time is March 2021, but the total amount of investment in the project is not disclosed. Tesla Automobile Hong Kong Co., Ltd.

According to the EIA report, the project will carry out tests and research related to the start-up of new models in the existing plant, and the project will only carry out experiments on important equipment and production processes, verification of product dimensions and functional matching of parts and components. Although this project is an experimental project, the amount of water-based paint used in the painting experimental process accounts for more than 80% of the total coating amount. Except for the varnish, all other coatings use water-based coatings, and the VOCs content of the adhesive is less than 5%.

Tesla mentioned in the EIA report that the early start-up project of the new model is to meet the experiment of foreign process localization, mainly considering that the integrated formed aluminum alloy base plate used in the new model replaces the stamping and welding of more than 50 parts of the traditional vehicle, and the integrated forming base plate reduces the amount of solder joint and glue coating (undisclosed specific quantity) compared with the traditional punching and welding workshop, which is the first case in the world. In addition, the introduction of new models needs to go through the start-up phase, and a certain debugging period is needed according to the early Model 3 and the commissioning of key equipment in North America.

"2020 (second) China Automotive New Materials Application Summit Forum"

It was solemnly held in Shanghai from September 17 to 18.

During the reform period of the "four modernizations of the automobile", intelligent network connection, new energy, lightweight and intelligent manufacturing entered the field of the automobile industry, and the automobile era was reinterpreted. The surging changes require the industry to continue to integrate and innovate, and quickly promote the development rate of automobile enterprises. With the emergence of self-driving and intelligent cars, Internet companies, which are not active in the automotive field, have more opportunities to show their talents; the double points policy is becoming an important driving force for the development of China's new energy vehicle industry; in the face of environmental constraints, car companies speed up the application of advanced lightweight components and technologies to achieve vehicle weight loss. With the continuous promotion of the strategies of "Industrial 4.0" and "made in China 2025", intelligent manufacturing has become a new challenge of upgrading and transformation.

Under the guidance of the Shanghai Economic and Informatization Commission and the Shanghai Federation of Industrial economy, in order to accelerate the application of automobile lightweight and product lines, the Shanghai Nonferrous Metals Industry Association, together with Shanghai Automotive Engineering Society, Suzhou Die casting Technology Association and Shanghai Nonferrous Network, jointly held the "2020 (second) China Automotive New Materials Application Summit Forum". Jointly discuss material solutions, co-casting automobile industry chain green development closed loop, and strive to build an excellent communication and cooperation platform for the whole automobile industry chain, and lead the creation of advanced automobile industry clusters.
