Embracing green tech for cleaner experience


The 2022 China International Fair for Trade in Services puts special emphasis on green development, aligning itself with the nation's efforts to achieve its carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals.

An environmental service section, set up for the first time in the history of the CIFTIS, covers an area of 16,700 square meters and comprises five themed exhibitions on low-carbon energy, climate, carbon economy, carbon neutrality and green technology, according to its organizers.

A total of 24 related forums attracting international heavyweights in green industry are scheduled during the CIFTIS.

They include the 2022 Global Ecological Sustainable Development Summit, the 2022 Economic Development Forum on Carbon Neutrality and Climate Economy Summit.

The fair adheres to a green-centered philosophy. Many of its thematic sessions are held in Shougang Park, where visitors can learn about the venue's story of transforming from a major steel mill until 2005 into a park and tourist attraction.

More than simply making use of the facilities already inside the park to serve the fair, Shougang Park has set up some new venues. They feature a steel structure that is convenient to disassemble, and adopt a tensioned membrane structure to absorb sunlight.

"Some bricks under the feet of visitors are not ordinary at all. They are made from solid waste such as steel slag and water slag produced in the steel production process. There are 190,000 such bricks on-site," an industry insider said.

"Monitoring carbon emissions during the construction process has been an ongoing industry headache. But the carbon emissions monitor which made its debut at the fair can solve this nicely," an expert said.

"It should be attached to each construction vehicle on the construction site to analyze the vehicle's vibrations. Then the specific carbon emission data of different types of construction vehicles can be accurately identified and recorded.

"All relevant data are eventually collected into a carbon emission monitoring and management platform, which can deal with carbon emissions covering the complete life cycle of a construction project-from material production and engineering construction to operation and maintenance after completion.

"It helps to reduce crew, cut the cost of monitoring and effectively improve its accuracy."

In addition, a large number of green-centered products and technologies on display are catching visitors' attention. They include energy-saving printers, and carbon-reducing and emission-reducing power generation equipment, as well as urban community models using ultra-low energy-consuming technology.

China's environmental protection industry revenue reached 2.18 trillion yuan ($31.59 billion) in 2021, an 11.8 percent increase year-on-year. It had a direct contribution of 1.8 percent to China's GDP last year.
