Environmental protection and energy conservation have become a valuable highland for new building materials

Recently, the State Council issued the "12th Five-Year Plan for Energy-saving and Emission-reducing Comprehensive Work Program," which proposes specific measures in terms of overall energy-saving and emission-reduction requirements and major goals, intensifying energy-saving and emission-reduction target responsibilities, and adjusting and optimizing the industrial structure. Claim. At the same time, the State Council also announced multiple annexes for energy conservation goals and total chemical oxygen demand (COD) emission control plans in various regions during the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period. Energy conservation, emission reduction, and environmental protection have become the top priorities of industrial upgrading and economic restructuring.

This work plan clarifies the goals of energy conservation and emission reduction in the next five years and requires that the unit's energy consumption per unit of GDP, chemical oxygen demand, carbon dioxide*, ammonia nitrogen, and nitrogen oxide emissions are all higher than the “11th Five-Year Plan”. There was a significant decline during the period. This has enhanced the market's confidence in energy-saving and emission reduction, and at the same time, it also provides a huge and stable market demand for related industries.

In this work program, six major areas such as industrial energy conservation, transportation energy conservation, building energy conservation, energy saving and emission reduction in agriculture and rural areas, energy saving for commercial and civil use, and energy saving and emission reduction by public institutions were highlighted. Industry analysts pointed out that among the six major emission reduction targets, the most promising ones at present and the potential for greater policy support is the field of building energy conservation.

Building energy efficiency is mainly divided into the building materials demand outside the building and the core technologies and products within the building. In particular, the selection and use of building materials directly affects the total carbon emissions of the country. The building materials industry is an important raw material industry. It is also one of the industries with the greatest reduction, reuse, recycling and recycling potentials.

Environmental protection and energy conservation have become "value highlands" for new building materials

Compared with traditional building materials, manufacturing new building materials can not only reduce the consumption of natural resources and energy consumption, but also enable a reasonable amount of waste to be developed and utilized. The production of new type building materials can not only adopt production technologies that do not cause pollution to the environment, but also can be used as renewable resources after the products have ended their useful lives, and new foreign materials will not be formed. The “12th Five-Year Plan for Science and Technology Development of the Building Materials Industry” issued by China Federation of Building Materials pointed out that building energy-saving and green building has become a major demand for sustainable development of the country.

In recent years, new types of building materials, including new types of waterproof sealing materials, new wall materials, thermal insulation materials and new building decoration materials, have achieved rapid development. With the gradual maturation of materials and technologies used in energy-efficient buildings, the market space for new building materials is also growing. At present, large-scale real estate developers pay more and more attention to the provision and use of green building materials, and the market is in a state of insufficiency. In addition, with the further development of new rural construction, new building materials have also found a wide range of markets in rural areas. According to statistics, China's rural civil construction area accounts for more than 60% of the country's total construction area. As the use of building materials in the rural market is mostly low-end products, buildings consume more energy and are less environmentally friendly. This means that the new building materials have a very broad space for promotion in rural areas.

The countryside is not only a potential market for new building materials, but also an important raw material source for new building materials. Taking straw as an example, the traditional practice is to return to land by burning, which is easy to cause environmental pollution and has low resource utilization efficiency. A group of new-type building materials enterprises represented by Anhui Chushu Building Materials Co., Ltd. transformed them into building materials such as “straw tile” and realized the comprehensive utilization of resources.

Ji Kunsen, chairman of the Anhui Research Society for Recycling Economy, said that in the past, straw was used as biomass energy mainly for direct combustion and pyrolysis gasification. The direct-fired type utilizes the direct combustion of crop straws to generate heat, which has low thermal efficiency and large investment. Pyrolysis and gasification produce a variety of organic compounds and tar, and if not recycled, it causes environmental pollution. Similar to the construction of tree-building materials, the series of post-processed by-products are developed and processed in depth, their benefits exceed the main products, and they also meet the circular economy in pursuit of greater economic efficiency, less resource consumption, lower environmental pollution, and more labor. The basic characteristics of employment.

In this regard, the implementation of the China Low Carbon Action Coalition’s Zhang Hua also holds a similar view. He said that in the future, the gathering place for China’s wealth will be in the low-carbon sector and the low-carbon road will be the only option for the Chinese economy. Low-carbon, as the direction of China's economic transformation, has become the consensus of most people. The transformation must first change the train of thought. It is the thinking of resource consumption that is transformed into the thinking of resource recycling, which has only made the current trend of high growth in new building materials companies.

Compared with economic benefits, the social benefits that can not be ignored are also important ways for new-type building materials companies to become the mainstream of future development. Wu Chia-cheng, vice president of the Chinese Association of International Societies, Soong Ching Ling, clearly pointed out that the contribution of the building materials to the low-carbon economy was first and foremost to contribute to improving the living environment of human beings. In particular, it has taken a step forward to solve some of the farmers’ problems in production, livelihood and employment. In this process, real corporate value is achieved.

The next 20 years will still be a period of high growth in China's economy. It is estimated that by 2020, China will also build 30 billion square meters of buildings, and new building materials will be the strategic focus of the industrial restructuring of the building materials industry and the transformation of economic growth patterns, with broad prospects for development. Environmental protection and energy conservation are important development directions for new building materials. The characteristics of “value highland” will also be further highlighted. Numerous “building trees” will surely have a brighter future.
