Shaanxi issued carbon peak carbon neutral implementation opinions

Latest News: A few days ago, the Shaanxi Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China and the Provincial Government issued the “Implementation Opinions on Completely Accurately Implementing the New Development Concept and Doing a Good Job in Carbon Neutralization” (hereinafter referred to as “Implementation Opinions”). ) proposed that by 2030, the energy utilization efficiency of key energy-consuming industries in Shaanxi Province will reach the domestic advanced level, and the energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of regional GDP will continue to decline; the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption will reach about 20%, and the carbon dioxide emissions will reach a peak. Steady and down.

The “Implementation Opinions” clarified that new or expanded projects such as steel, cement clinker, flat glass, and electrolytic aluminum should strictly implement the replacement of production capacity with equal or reduced capacity. Those that are not included in the national planning in relevant fields shall not build, rebuild or expand oil refining projects, nor build ethylene, paraxylene, and coal-to-olefins projects. Intensify efforts to tackle key technical problems, and actively develop coal-based special fuels and coal-based biodegradable materials. Promote the improvement of quality and efficiency of strategic emerging industries such as new-generation information technology, new materials, new energy, high-end equipment, and new energy vehicles. Cultivate 23 key industrial chains and deploy emerging industries such as artificial intelligence and hydrogen energy.

In terms of improving the clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system, strengthen the control of energy consumption intensity and total amount, and gradually realize the transition from “double control” of energy consumption to “double control” of total carbon emission and intensity. Continue to improve the efficiency of energy utilization in key areas, strictly control the consumption of fossil energy, promote the utilization of coal by grades and grades, and give full play to the function of coal raw materials. At the same time, vigorously develop non-fossil energy, promote the leap-forward development of wind power and photovoltaic power generation in northern Shaanxi, and implement the “photovoltaic +” model. Coordinate and promote the development of the whole chain of “production, transportation, storage and utilization” of hydrogen energy, and build the core competitiveness of Shaanxi’s hydrogen energy industry.

The “Implementation Opinions” also pointed out that Shaanxi will formulate implementation plans for carbon peaking in key industries and fields such as energy, steel, non-ferrous metals, petrochemicals, and building materials. Implement the strategy of main functional zones, promote the high-end, diversified and low-carbon development of energy and chemical industries in northern Shaanxi, cultivate advanced manufacturing clusters in Guanzhong area, and speed up the optimization, transformation and upgrading of chemical, steel, building materials and other raw material industries.

Hu Haifeng, honorary president of Shaanxi Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation, believes that Shaanxi’s fossil energy accounts for a large proportion, and it is difficult and challenging to achieve the national “dual carbon” and energy consumption “dual control” goals. It is necessary to strengthen the connection between energy conservation and consumption reduction and the “dual control” policy of carbon emissions, make great efforts to carry out green and low-carbon new technologies, and improve energy conversion efficiency and resource utilization. Actively explore low-cost green hydrogen, and use green hydrogen to balance syngas to replace the coal-to-chemical conversion section to greatly reduce carbon emissions.
