Experts said the low-carbon economic development lies in the low-emission, high absorption and carbon continuous, and forest resources play an important role in this regard, its low greenhouse gas emissions, high absorption significant. Therefore, to enhance the rational use of forestry science to the development of low-carbon economy is essential higher requirements on the forest products industry. Flooring industry as an important part of the forest products industry, also looking for a select from the raw materials to all aspects of production, paving, use low-carbon development.
March 23, 2010, the first floor of the World Congress theme of "low-carbon economy and global opportunities will be opened in Shanghai, when more than 500 industry leaders from around the world is how will the flooring industry trends, flooring products achieve a low carbon and environmental protection topics including in-depth discussions. World Assembly floor as the 12th China International Floor Materials and Pavement Technology Exhibition during important events, of great significance to lead the development of the flooring industry towards low-carbon environment.
Low-carbon environment to promote the development of the forest products industry
The development of low-carbon economy, focused on the development of low-carbon industries. An important indicator of the low-carbon industry carbon exchange. The so-called "carbon exchange", is an enterprise "carbon sinks (carbon sequestration and storage capacity) with the carbon source (carbon generated emissions)" ratio. However, with the continuous progress of human society, the carbon emissions inevitable situation of ecological environment facing tremendous pressure to try to maintain a balance between carbon sinks and carbon sources.
As we all know, forests absorb carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, all countries actively to seek the protection of forest resources policy. In 2009, the approval of the State Council, China promulgated the forestry industry revitalization plan. Convening of the second session of the General Assembly of the National Forestry Industry, all levels of government has issued a series of policies and measures to promote the development of the forestry industry. United Nations Climate Change Summit held in September 2009, Chinese President Hu Jintao made the world "greatly increase the forests 'carbon sinks', and by 2020 the forest area of 40 million hectares more than in 2005, forest stock volume In 2005, an increase of 1.3 billion cubic meters, "a solemn commitment. Above a series of initiatives, and undoubtedly of great significance to increase the "carbon sinks".
According to the findings of the Seventh National Forest resources: By the end of 2008, China's forest area has reached 195 million hectares, the forest coverage rate of 20.36 percent, forest reserves of 13.721 billion cubic meters. To save an area of 062 million hectares of plantations, accumulation of 1.961 billion cubic meters. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Global Forest Resources Assessment 2005, China carried out in recent years, large-scale afforestation and natural forest resources protection, to curb the decline in forest resources of Asia to make a positive contribution to this highly of: Asian forest protection The improvement is mainly due to China's large-scale afforestation.
However, while the role of "carbon sinks" to increase forest resources, should focus on emission reduction initiatives in various industries, the emission reduction is a necessary condition for the development of low-carbon economy. In the process of social development, the use of fossil fuels, to improve the human living environment made outstanding contributions, but it also brings serious environmental disasters, therefore, in the process of development of the various sectors, the increase can be recycled, more low-carbon emissions from the development and utilization of biomass materials, more in line with the requirements of the development of low-carbon economy.
Wood biomass as the basic raw material, has been widely used to greatly reduce the carbon dioxide emissions caused by the use of fossil fuels. And timber as a part of the forest resources, recycling characteristics, scientific and rational use, you can make the coexistence of the forest products industry and forest conservation, and promote each other, to meet the needs of the development of low-carbon economy. Therefore, the forest products industry is not only a key component of the low-carbon economy, scientific and rational use of forest resources to promote the protection of forest resources.
