China Urges Green Tech Innovations

As the COVID-19 pandemic results in instabilities and uncertainties of the world economy, China faces a more challenging problem in green and sustainable development. China is striving to realize low-carbon and green development in the process of achieving modernization by the middle of the century. The international society should support each other and realise development with green transformation and raise the quality and efficiency of the economy.

The international community should also attach high importance to concerns and appeals from developing countries and increase support in technology to assist them in realising green and low-carbon transformation. China also suggests all countries change mindsets to advance the transition toward green and low-carbon development.

In post-pandemic recovery, no countries should go back to the old path of development featuring high pollution and high emissions. Instead, all countries should steadfastly pursue win-win results by accelerating the digital transformation to achieve a balance between economic development and environmental protection.

China pledges to reach peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and become carbon-neutral by 2060. The country will establish and improve an economic system featuring green, low-carbon and circular development to facilitate its overall green transformation. It also will make pollution reduction and the drop in carbon emissions complement each other. The quality of future development will depend on whether it is green or not. China is willing to work with all sides to jointly push forward a green recovery and create a better future for mankind.

China will also prioritise its efforts to have CO2 emissions peak in key industrial sectors, including steel, chemicals and cement, by setting specific targets, road maps, action plans and supporting measures.  Urban and rural construction as well as the transportation sector will need to go greener as well.

With more input regarding policy, technology and funding, the country will encourage regions where conditions permit to peak their CO2 emissions ahead of schedule. The supervision of local governments and officials will be both intensified, and related work will be included in central environment inspections.

According to an article,  China aims to become the global leader in low-carbon tech for a carbon-constrained world. China is today the world’s largest emitter of planet-heating gases, responsible for about 28% of total global emissions.

In the 2021-2025 economic and social development plan, the government will reinforce a strong signal to Chinese industry to move away from fossil fuels and national emissions are likely to start falling within five years. However, shifting rapidly from a focus on dirty industry to greener tech is a monumental task. Hence, China tries to identify the green technology of the future that will solve the current environmental problems.

Accordingly, Chinese researchers have invented advanced technology to reduce C02 emissions, as reported by OpenGov Asia. hey developed a series of low-cost, green, and efficient porous nano-SiO2/Al2O3 supported solid amine CO2 adsorbents using solid waste as the main raw materials. Their studies were supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the National Key R&D Program of China, a tech company and have also been published in the well-known journals of Environmental Science & Technology and Chemical Engineering Journal in the environmental and energy fields.

This technology is in line with China’s active participation in global climate governance and insists on promoting CO2 mitigation. General Secretary put forward the ambitious goal of striving to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 at the 75th United Nations General Assembly.

Humankind can no longer afford to ignore the repeated warnings of nature and go down the beaten path of extracting resources without investing in conservation. Humans cannot always pursue development at the expense of protection, and exploiting resources without restoration.
