To deal with the shortage of face masks, Sinopec has cooperated with Chinese enterprise Naton Medical Group to produce masks with the former providing mask making machines, raw materials and manpower while the latter provides medical equipment, qualification and clean workshops.
So far, Sinopec has made available a total of 11.7 tons of materials for melt-blown nonwoven, with 10 mask making machines being put into production.
Up-to-standard masks had already been supplied to residents in Beijing. With more machines on the manufacturing line and the increasing production capacity, the daily production is expected to reach 1 million pieces by March 10.
