China Focus: China works to achieve carbon reduction pledge

Hefei, March 20 (Xinhua): A factory with glass walls and a glass roof in the city of Bengbu, Anhui Province of East China, has generated more than 11 million kilowatts-hour. of electricity within a year.

"You can meet 40 percent of the factory's electricity demand, greatly reducing energy consumption," said Tao Ligang, executive vice president of BENGBB design and Investigation of the glass industry Research Institute of the National Group of Materials of the Chinese Building Co. Ltd.

It is estimated that the photovoltaic building Slim film, with a construction area of ​​120,000 square meters and a total installed capacity of 10 megawatts, will save 117,000 tons of coal and reduce 265,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions during their period of 25 years, according to Tao. China is taking positive actions to fulfill its commitment made last year to achieve the peak of carbohydrates on emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality in 2060.

According to a government work report sent to the national legislature for deliberation at the beginning of March, China will prepare an action plan. To the peak carbon emissions for 2030 and improve its industrial structure and its energy mix.

Located in Anhui, China Subsidiary Baowu Mangang (Group) Holding Company Limited (Magang Group) last year invested more than 3 billion yuan (462 million dollars Americans) In the environment Protection projects of entities, and completed 11 technical energy conservation projects, including residue heat recovery and the generation of photovoltaic energy.

"EN 2020, the group reduced its comprehensive energy consumption by TONENE STEEL by 7.56 kg of standard coal compared to 2019," said Luo Wulong, head of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection of the Mangang Group.

China's confidence at the meeting of its objectives are based on its excellent record of reduction of carbon emissions.

Change towards clean and low carbon energy consumption is accelerating in the country, according to a white paper entitled "Energy in the New Era of China", Issued in December 2020 by the Information Office of the State Council of China.

Green development of the energy sector has played an important role in reducing carbon. Emissions By 2019, the intensity of carbon emissions in China had decreased by 48.1 percent compared to 2005.
