Shanxi Lu'an Shigejie Zhihua Biotechnology Co., Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the world's top 500 Shanxi Lu'an Mine (Group) Co., Ltd. In 2012, Lu'an Group began to invest in the construction of the Shanxi Lu'an oil peony industry base and vigorously develop the oil peony industry. The company started the field cultivation and planting methods from the source of nursery, and established a standardized breeding chain for planting and variety breeding. The base independently developed a special seeding machine for oil peony, seedling machine and planting machine to realize the standardization, scale and mechanization of field seedling and planting. As an emerging strategic industry of the Lu'an Group, the “Million-mu oil peony eco-industrial integration plan” was steadily implemented to expand the area of oil peony planting, and strive to achieve a planting peony planting scale of more than 400,000 mu at the end of the “13th Five-Year Plan”. At the end of the 14th Five-Year Plan, the planting scale reached 1 million mu, and a 50,000-ton/year deep processing project was completed, which was called the “Zhihua Tianbao” brand.
In 2014, Zhihua was designated as the first R&D base by the Oil Peony Engineering Technology Research Center of the State Forestry Administration.
In 2017, Zhihua oil peony planting base was listed as a national agricultural industry standardization demonstration zone by the National Standards Committee.
In 2018, Zhihua joined the National Innovation Alliance of Oil Peony Industry as the lead unit, and formed a highly integrated industrial science and technology innovation development platform with the goal of “leading industrial development and promoting scientific and technological innovation”.
Oil peony is used as a strategic emerging industry of the Lu'an Group. It is based on the principle of increasing production and increasing efficiency, supporting varieties, combining agricultural machinery and agronomy, and producing ecological coordination. To carry out integrated development of oil peony seedling, planting, processing and sales industries; to create an internationally competitive oil peony industrial chain through enterprise management, market operation, industrialized operation and large-scale layout, and build it into domestic oil Peony leading enterprise.
Shanxi Lu'an Shigejie Zhihua Biotechnology Co., Ltd. currently has two large-scale nursery bases in Changzhi and Linfen, and has realized sowing, planting and seedling mechanization, which provides a powerful guarantee for large-scale planting and promotion of oil peony.
Standardization of seed screening: Acquired a certificate of good quality of forest trees certified by the Shanxi Forest Species Certification Committee to ensure high-quality provenance.
In order to better improve the quality of seedlings, the whole process of breeding and breeding is strictly in accordance with advanced technological processes.
The selection, sowing, planting, field management and mechanization of the seedlings have greatly reduced the damage of seedlings and greatly improved production efficiency.
By the end of 2018, the total size of nursery was 23,000 mu, and the seedlings of high-quality oil peony seedlings were 1.7 billion, accounting for half of the total seedlings in the country. It is the largest standardized seedling enterprise in the country.
Shanxi Lu'an Shigejie Zhihua Biotechnology Co., Ltd. invested 60 million yuan to build a large oil peony deep processing base base covering an area of 200,000 square meters. The base introduces German advanced cold-pressing equipment and adopts the international cutting-edge physical pressing process to extract the virgin crude oil extract. The whole process is not treated by high temperature, avoiding the generation of harmful substances in the high temperature processing process, and retaining the active substances (unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, etc.) in the peony seed oil to the utmost extent, greatly improving the quality of the peony seed oil.
The base has obtained ISO22000 food safety management system certification, international food safety certification (HACCP), EU food standard certification (BRC ) and international halal food certification (HALAL). After testing, the indicators of “Zhihua Tianbao” peony seed oil series products have reached or exceeded the peony seed oil industry standard issued by the State Grain Administration.
The oil peony is all treasure, the flower leaf and the flower core can be made into tea, the pollen can process cosmetics, health care products, the seed shell can process medicine, the peel can be refined to produce flavonoids and peony proanthocyanidins, and the fruit pod can produce peony polysaccharide, seed cypress It can produce polysaccharide glue, and the root bark itself is an important Chinese herbal medicine “Danpi”, and the industrial chain is very long. Based on the development of industrial technology innovation, Zhihua will gradually extend the industrial chain to produce high-end cosmetics, health products, medicines and food products, laying a foundation for the production and development of Lu'an Group green agricultural products.

After years of research and exploration, the company has accumulated rich experience in the bio-health industry.
Established a strong scientific research cooperation platform with many well-known research institutes, institutions and enterprises in China to carry out integrated cooperation in production, education and research.
Signed a cooperation agreement with the former State Forestry Administration's Oil Peony Engineering Technology Center and established the Lu'an R&D Base.
The company has cooperated with Shanxi Functional Food Engineering Center Co., Ltd., Shanxi Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing Forestry University, and Shanxi Na'an Biotechnology Co., Ltd. respectively.
