Li Weijian firstly delivered a welcome speech. He stated the practical significance of the program based on the present situation and dilemma of production of the company. The implement of the program will greatly improve of the overall level of the electrolytic manganese industry of China, and will be a milestone to the company or even the whole manganese industry. It is a model of the cooperation between university and enterprise, and the cooperation between universities. He claimed that the company would spare no effort to arrange the researches and implementation of relevant work, to ensure the successful passing of the check and acceptance of the Ministry of Science and Technology and finally the application on the product lines.

To ensure the smooth implementation of the program, the Ministry of Science and Technology invited Prof. Li Jinlin as chief expert, Prof. Lian Fang from University of Science and Technology Beijing, Prof. Hou Haobo from Wuhan University, Prof. Wu Xiaohui from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, the deputy general manager Ming Xianquan from Citic Dameng Mining Industries Limited as the members of expert panel, who are jointly responsible for the organization and coordination of the research and implementation of the program. Tian Liangang issued the letters of appointment to the members of expert panel.

On the launching ceremony, Prof. Li Jinlin hosted the symposium on the research work of the program. The four leading units, basing on project targets, gave reports on the finished researches and the future two-year work arrangement from the perspectives of the clean production of low grade Rhodochrosite, and the efficient enrichment and extraction technology. The experts proceeded detailed discussion on the researches of the four projects and the practical methods and theory of the establishment of demonstration production line. They reached agreement on how to satisfy the need of the enterprise production. Prof. Li Jinlin demanded that each project team stick to the project schedule, by combining researching, designing and implementing together to ensure the high-quality and on-time accomplishment of the project. He also said that they should stick rigorously to the financial disciplines and budget. He emphasized that the cooperation and coordination is the key to the smooth implementation of the program; every unit and every person in charge should sincerely cooperate and fully coordinate in various work, especially for Citic Dameng Mining Industries Limited which provides research infrastructural facilities for the program.

Tian Liangang fully affirmed the research work of each team, and emphasized that China possesses limited recourses and living space, and the development of production and people’s living space all requires excellent environment, which endows great significance to the program. The implement of the program will play demonstration and guidance role to the manganese industry. He raised four requirements to the program team: establishment of regulation, scientific management, regular operation and cooperatively tackling key problems. The program possesses obvious practicability and demonstration, so the research must take feasibility, technology roadmap and production cost into consideration; the Citic Dameng Mining Industries Limited should timely report the need of the enterprise to the researchers to ensure high-quality and on-time implementation of the program; the expenditures of project fund should strictly stick to the financial principles and performances; SCUN and other cooperating units and their members should shoulder the responsibility together to ensure the successful accomplishment of various tasks of the program.
