“Implementation Plan for Carbon Peaking in the Industrial Sector”

A few days ago, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment recently jointly issued the "Implementation Plan for Carbon Peaking in the Industrial Sector", proposing that during the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, positive progress will be made in the optimization of the industrial structure and energy consumption structure, and energy resources will be improved. The utilization efficiency has been greatly improved, a number of green factories and green industrial parks have been built, and a number of low-carbon, zero-carbon and negative-carbon technology and equipment products with significant emission reduction effects have been developed, demonstrated, and promoted, so as to build a solid foundation for carbon peaking in the industrial field.

By 2025, the energy consumption per unit of added value of industrial enterprises above designated size will drop by 13.5% compared with 2020, the decline in carbon dioxide emissions per unit of industrial added value will be greater than that of the whole society, and the intensity of carbon dioxide emissions in key industries will drop significantly.

During the "15th Five-Year Plan" period, the industrial structure and layout will be further optimized, and the intensity of industrial energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission will continue to decline. A modern industrial system featuring high efficiency, greenness, recycling, and low carbon will be basically established, ensure that industrial CO2 emissions peak by 2030.

In the key tasks of the plan, it is mentioned in the in-depth adjustment of the industrial structure to optimize the production capacity scale of key industries. Revise the industrial structure adjustment guide catalog. Strictly implement the production capacity replacement policy in steel, cement, flat glass, electrolytic aluminum and other industries, strengthen the analysis, early warning and window guidance of overcapacity in key industries, and accelerate the resolution of excess capacity.

Vigorously develop the circular economy, optimize the structure of resource allocation, give full play to the synergistic effect of resource conservation and carbon reduction, and reduce carbon emissions in the industrial sector through efficient recycling of resources. Promote the substitution of low-carbon raw materials. On the premise of ensuring the quality of cement products, promote low-carbon cement production technology with high solid waste content, and guide cement enterprises to use phosphogypsum, titanium gypsum, fluorogypsum, slag, calcium carbide slag, steel slag, magnesium slag, fly ash and other non-ferrous gypsum Cement from carbonate raw materials. Promote the co-processing of waste-derived combustibles in cement kilns.

Accelerate industrial green and low-carbon technological transformation. Promote major low-carbon technologies, processes, and equipment innovation breakthroughs and transformation applications, and promote industrial carbon reduction and decarbonization through technological process innovation and production process reengineering. Publish a catalog of major industrial low-carbon technologies, organize the formulation of technology promotion plans and supply-demand docking guidelines, and promote the promotion and application of advanced and applicable industrial green and low-carbon new technologies, new processes, new equipment, and new materials. Focusing on industries such as cement, iron and steel, petrochemical chemicals, electrolytic aluminum, etc., focusing on key technologies such as low-carbon raw material substitution and short-process manufacturing, we will promote manufacturing process innovation and equipment transformation, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in industrial processes. Encourage all regions and industries to explore new mechanisms for promoting green and low-carbon technologies. Major actions formulate implementation plans for carbon peaking in steel, building materials, petrochemicals, non-ferrous metals and other industries, study low-carbon development roadmaps for consumer goods, equipment manufacturing, electronics and other industries.

Increase the supply of green and low-carbon products in the field of urban and rural construction. The carbon emission indicators of products such as cement, glass, ceramics, lime, and wall materials shall be incorporated into the green building materials standard system, and the certification of green building material products shall be accelerated. Carry out the creation of green building materials pilot cities and green building materials to the countryside, promote energy-saving glass, high-performance doors and windows, new thermal insulation materials, hot-rolled steel and weathering steel for construction, and new wall materials, and promote the priority selection of products that have obtained the green building materials certification mark. Promote the coordinated development of green building materials and green buildings. Promote energy-efficient air conditioners, lighting fixtures, elevators and other energy-consuming equipment, and expand the application of clean energy equipment such as solar water heaters, distributed photovoltaics, and air heat pumps in the construction field.
