Low-carbon economy (economic development model that reduces high-carbon energy consumption) – way to achieve

Low-carbon economy

1) One of the important ways to turn to a low-carbon economy and a low-carbon lifestyle is to give up the hobby of “convenience consumption” at the expense of high energy consumption.

“Convenience” is a popular value in modern business marketing and consumer life. Many convenient consumption methods waste a huge amount of energy inadvertently. For example, according to the estimation of refrigeration technology experts, 70% of the electricity consumption of supermarkets is used for freezers, while the electricity consumption of open freezers is 20% higher than that of glass door freezers. Based on this calculation, an open freezer in a medium-sized supermarket consumes about 48,000 kWh more electricity a year, which is equivalent to about 19 tons of standard coal, about 48 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and about 190,000 liters of purified water.

2) The second important way to turn to a low-carbon economy and a low-carbon lifestyle is to get rid of the consumption hobby of using “disposable” products with “related energy conservation and environmental protection awareness”.

In June 2008, the country began to implement the “plastic restriction order”. The uncontrolled use of plastic bags is one of the most typical hobbies that people have enjoyed for many years. To make quitting this hobby a conscious behavior of people, simply let the public understand that the meaning of “plastic restriction” is to curb white pollution. This is only a “one-dimensional” environmental protection science awareness. In fact, the significance of “plastic restriction” lies in saving the source of plastic – petroleum resources and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. This is a “connected” awareness of energy conservation and environmental protection. According to the “National Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Handbook” of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, reducing the number of plastic bags by 10% nationwide can save about 12,000 tons of standard coal in the production of plastic bags and reduce 310,000 tons of carbon dioxide. Relevant environmental awareness can not only guide the public to understand that “restricting plastics means saving oil and energy”, but also leading the public to realize that “saving water is also energy saving” (that is, saving electricity consumption for urban water production and water supply), and realizes that changing the use of “one-time” The relationship between consumption preferences of supplies and energy saving, carbon emission reduction, and climate change response.

3) The third important way to turn to a low-carbon economy and a low-carbon lifestyle is to abstain from the hobbies of “face consumption” and “luxury consumption” at the expense of a large amount of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

In the first quarter, the fastest growth in sales in the national auto market was the luxury car. Among them, the high-end and large-displacement BMW imported cars increased by more than 82% year-on-year, and the large-displacement multi-purpose sports vehicle SUV increased by 48.8% year-on-year. In contrast, many developed countries are willing to use small cars and cars with small displacement. Advocating a low-carbon lifestyle does not necessarily oppose the entry of cars into the family, but advocates the moderate use of private cars. The penetration rate of private cars in Japan is 80%, but travel is not entirely dependent on private cars. In the Tokyo area, private cars generally travel 3,000 to 5,000 kilometers a year, while private cars in Shanghai generally travel 18,000 kilometers a year. Domestic people’s uncontrolled use of private cars has become a hobby of conspicuous consumption. At the gates of key schools in some cities, 100 or 200 private cars to pick up and drop off children block the surrounding roads. Because people unilaterally interpret the meaning of “modern lifestyle” as “enjoying more conveniences provided by electrification and automation”, daily life is increasingly dependent on power technology systems with high energy consumption, often with short distances of several hundred meters or several floors. The stairs of the building must be traveled by motor vehicles and elevators. On the other hand, people’s diets are increasingly consuming high-calorie foods such as livestock and poultry meat, oil and fat, which are produced at the expense of high energy consumption and emissions of greenhouse gases, and the incidence of obesity has also increased. Some weight-loss groups in cities also like to consume electricity in artificial environments that consume electricity, such as air-conditioned gyms, electric treadmills, etc. for weight-loss consumption. The environmental cost is increased greenhouse gas emissions.

4) The fourth important way to turn to a low-carbon economy and a low-carbon lifestyle is to comprehensively strengthen the scientific dietary balance led by a low-carbon diet.

A low-carb diet, or low-carb diet, focuses on limiting carbohydrate consumption and increasing protein and fat intake. At present, the daily diet of Chinese people is mainly based on the production form of grain crops such as rice and wheat, and the diet structure of “south rice and north face”. The low-carbon diet can control the drastic changes in the body’s blood sugar, thereby improving the body’s antioxidant capacity and inhibiting the production of free radicals. However, due to the limited awareness and acceptance of the people, it cannot be changed immediately. Therefore, low-carb diet will be a long-term, hard work. However, it is believed that with the improvement of the general public awareness, low-carb diets will change the eating habits and lifestyles of Chinese people.

Leaders from more than 190 countries will come together to discuss a global agreement on climate change aimed at reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and averting the threat posed by dangerous climate change at the Paris Climate Change Conference. Carbon emissions are still the focus of discussion at the conference, and a low-carbon economy is expected to usher in the dawn. The largest emitting countries and regions have made commitments. The European Union will reduce 1990 emissions by 40% by 2030, the United States will reduce 2005 emissions by 26% to 28% by 2025, China Commitment to peak emissions in 2030.

The sustainable development of human beings also needs to be considered. The sales packaging of products with sustainable development in the market needs to be transformed from traditional plastic packaging materials to recycled plastic films that are sustainable for the environment and future generations, kraft paper degradable materials, biodegradable, Plant starch PLA is degradable, photodegradable and PVA water-soluble and other environmentally friendly materials. If you want to get more information, please contact us, our factory is a good helper for you to solve this problem. With the changes in market demand and government policies, our factory has mature product technology and has provided suitable product packaging for the United States, Japan, Russia, Germany, Australia, Canada, Turkey and other countries.
