The Hang Seng Index has gained nearly 30 percent this year, while Chinese mainland companies had contributed to the gains, U.S.-listed Chinese company stocks also surged this year. Shares of e-commerce giant Alibaba have more doubled in the last 11 months, while Baidu and JD.com have nearly 50 percent gains in stock price. “When you think about the growth runway still available to these Chinese technology companies, and the amount of revenue they’re still growing every year, then they really aren’t that ridiculously priced,” says Joseph Lai, portfolio manager of Platinum’s Asia fund.

Shineco Inc (NASDAQ:  TYHT) recently announced breaking news this week, “on process of establishing an Apocynum Industrial Park in Xinjiang, China. Shineco has worked on the development of the apocynum industrialization since 1997, and has overcome two out of three technical obstacles in the past, which were “Steam Explosion Degumming” and “Blending of Multiple Apocynum Fibers.” The Company also collaborates with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and more than 20 research institutes, hospitals and textile mills.

Through the cooperation with Fucheng Air Source Precision Machinery Parts Co., Ltd, Shineco has successfully developed the apocynum straw separation machine, making apocynum industrialization possible. This breakthrough technology has ended a 50-year history of artificial separation process of apocynum, boosted the production efficiency by more than 200 times as well as lowed the cost of apocynum production for as much as 70%, As such, this marked a milestone that Shineco has overcome all of the three technical difficulties in apocynum industrialization. This new machine will be widely used in Apocynum Industrial Park in Xinjiang, China.

Apocynum is a special kind of Chinese herbal, which can be used to extract a unique fiber from its straw. Such fiber not only shares the similar characteristics of cotton, linen and silk, but also has a natural far infrared function and traditional Chinese medicine function. Therefore, many pharmaceutical company in the world are interested in developing the technologies that utilizes this attractive and profitable fibers. However, apocynum separation is a difficult process, mainly because the straw of the apocynum contains 25% gelatine, which makes processing apocynum very costly. A worker can separate only 2 kilograms apocynum a day, even after the apocynum has been prepared for processing, which requires being soaked in water for more than a month. As such, the high labor cost and the low production efficiency has been a significant obstacle to apocynum industrialization for a long time.”

Adding the generation of apocynum production with this proprietary technology undoubtedly positions ingenious to boost efficiency dramatically. We believe that the apocynum industry will be very excited about the robustness of this technology and quality of the production generated as well as the labor cost saved. We expected to harvest and separate 100,000 tons of apocynum by this winter and next spring, which will increase Shineco’s revenue for about 300 million RMBin 2018. In the meantime, encouraged by the China’s preferential tax policy for the agricultural products, we expected our net profit margin can reach 35% in the following year.”
