Former Leaders of the Department of Materials of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Sciences Academy of the China Guodian Corporation Paid an Inspection Tour to the Program Sites of Biomass and Green Low-carbon Development

On Mar 21-22, 2015, Zhou Changyi, Former Director of the Department of Materials of the Ministry of Industry and Information, Zhu Fahua, Deputy Director of the Academy of Environmental Protection of the China Guodian Corporation and Li Junyang, IEEPA Secretary General paid an inspection visit to the program sites of biomass and green low-carbon development under the support of IEEPA and UNIDO at the Inner-Mongolia Maowusu Biomass Thermal Power (Ltd). During the inspection tour, the conference on raising the efficiency of biomass thermoelectricity and energy circular utilization was held to promote biomass-supported power generation.

Accompanied by Chen Yuchuan, Manager of Inner-Mongolia Maowusu Biomass Thermal Power (Ltd), leaders of the inspection tour visited the site and were updated on the development of the program on afforestation. Through stumping measures, salix mongolica at the site has regained life for stabilization of sands and cut off branches have been used for biomass power generation.

Afterwards, the inspection team visited the biomass power plant and R&D research center of spirulina plantation and products. Nowadays, high-quality spirulina has been produced thanks to the good geographical conditions and spirulina cosmetics already be exported to the South Korea Yeungnam University.

After the inspection tour, leaders of the team held a meeting concerning the project. Zhou Changyi, Director of the Materials Ministry and Zhu Fahua, Deputy Director of the Academy of Environmental Protection presented their views, agreed to support further development of the project and spoke highly of the low-carbon development efforts by the Maowusu program.

According to Zhou Changyi, the progam is an important practice in advancing China’s ecological civilization. It does not only help improve ecological environment and reduce carbon emission, but increase farmers’ earnings. It serves as a good model for green and low-carbon development and a witness of win-win outcomes of environmental protection and ecological development.

Zhou also said that “the program is actually transforming China”.

Zhu Fahua, Deputy Director of the Academy of Environmental Protection offered his suggestions. First, coating technology for furnaces can be applied to improve heat transfer efficiency and reduce coking rate. Second, plant ash can be made into potash fertilizer in globular form, which can then replace soil needed for indoors ornamental plants to increase added values.
