CPC rolls out high-value petrochemical industry and talent incubation project

The Manufacturing Safety and High Value Talent Incubation Project was kicked off on June 10 concurrently at CPC’s headquarters and its Chiayi Training Center. The project - guided by the Industrial Development Bureau in the Ministry of Economic Affairs, hosted by CPC and the High Value Petrochemical Industry Promotion Office (PIPO) and co-hosted by Taiwan Responsible Care Association (TRCA) and Taiwan Chemical Industry Association (TCIA) – aims to jointly promote the high-value petrochemical industry and nation-wide, high-value talent incubation. Several leading petrochemical industry enterprises and associations were present to discuss collaboration on manufacturing safety, environmental safety and health and high-value talent incubation. Taiwan’s petrochemical industry talent incubation was officially launched to carry out high-value petrochemical safety and environmental protection over the long-term.
A CPC spokesperson said that the petrochemical industry has played an important role in Taiwan’s economic development. Under the impact of recent global market developments in competitive pricing and demanding new environmental safety standards, teams from CPC headquarters and the Chiayi Training Center have integrated their resources and designed a series of high-value talent incubation programs leading to enhanced industrial and economic development. CPC expects to work next year with the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Council of Labor Affairs and Ministry of Education on developing cooperative programs that will ensure both seamless transition for new graduates entering the industry and successful collaboration between the industry itself, government officials and universities.
CPC established its Green Technology Research Institute and Materials Testing and Certification Center in 2012 as a base for high-value research and development. The estimated investment will reach NTD2.3 billion by 2016. By using the Chiayi Training Center’s exceptional training facilities for education and experience-sharing with the petrochemical mid-/downstream industry on manufacturing and environmental safety issues, CPC aims to transform the research and development base into a national petrochemical industry research center that will help to integrate human resources, build a database of petrochemical industry professionals and promote research and development in high-value products and visionary technologies. By strengthening Taiwan’s petrochemical industry in this way, the problems of low investment in research and development, insufficient research and development technology, equipment and manpower will be resolved and its competitiveness given a boost.
