[China paint information] a few days ago, the United Nations climate change conference with global attention kicked off in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. From the moment of the opening of the conference, the world has entered Copenhagen time, and a negotiation related to global climate change, the future life of mankind and the slow rotation of the hand wheel of the oil return valve is under way. As the first commitment period of the Kyoto protocol is about to expire in 2012, the next stage of greenhouse gas emission reduction targets are facing redrafting, so this conference has attracted special attention from all parties

in the cause of environmental protection, China, as a developing country, is particularly concerned by the world. China is in a period of rapid economic growth, and a large part of this growth is brought by the secondary industry with high energy consumption and high pollution. At present, the adjustment of industrial structure is the biggest environmental issue facing our government. This time, China's vigorous emission reduction target expresses the strong determination of the Chinese government to deal with climate change and its responsible attitude towards the long-term development of society. As a major emitter of greenhouse gases, the chemical industry, including the coating industry, has a long way to go. In this negotiation, we summarized the words closely related to the coating industry, so as to more clearly see the task and mission of coating enterprises in the global action to protect the ecological environment

key words: energy conservation

the road of energy conservation and emission reduction of coating enterprises

entering the new millennium, coating, a traditional chemical sub industry, is also moving towards the goal of energy conservation and environmental protection. Coating enterprises in various countries have made active efforts to this end. Dow Chemical issued a statement before the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, saying it believed that the United States was essential to solve the problem of increasing global greenhouse gas emissions. BASF, a German chemical giant, plans to reduce the emissions of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas, from the adipic acid plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany, by using catalysts

stefanopigozzi, head of the inorganic business of BASF, said that through the implementation of the project, the greenhouse gas emissions of all production units of the company's headquarters will be reduced by about 2million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year from the temporary stable operation year of the scrap market on April 2014. In addition, BASF is also seeking other ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including the use of greenhouse gases as raw materials for production. According to reports, the company's global chemical business emitted 27.1 million tons of greenhouse gases in 2008, a decrease of 400000 tons over 2007. By eliminating paint enterprises with high pollution and energy consumption and strictly setting energy conservation and emission reduction targets, China is also gradually promoting the road of emission reduction for paint enterprises

in 2009, Beijing will eliminate the small chemical enterprises producing diluents, coatings, inks, adhesives and other heavily polluted production processes and equipment, such as casting cupola and single-stage gas producer. It is worth noting that due to the relatively low threshold of China's environmental protection policies, some foreign coating enterprises have transferred their production bases to China in order to avoid the high environmental protection costs of domestic production. While bringing advanced production equipment and technology, they have also transferred the hidden dangers of environmental pollution. I hope relevant departments can pay attention to this issue

key words: future

water based coatings as environmental protection defender

b. certificate of passing; The environmental pollution caused by traditional solvent based paint and the shortcomings of wasting a lot of energy in the production process have been recognized by more and more paint enterprises and ordinary consumers. Traditional paint is generally composed of main paint, curing agent, thinner, etc. Its use ratio is generally 2:1:2, that is, at least 2 kg of thinner is required for 5 kg of paint, and thinner is also required for cleaning tools. The main components of thinner are benzene, toluene and xylene. A large amount of thinner volatilizes into the atmosphere, seriously polluting the environment

therefore, traditional paint factories have always been regarded as major polluters, while the water-based coatings promoted in recent years use water as diluent, which will not cause pollution in the process of production and use, while saving a lot of oil resources, is the main development direction of the coating industry in the future. Although water-based coatings can not replace oil-based coatings in all fields at present, with the continuous progress of technology, the general trend of water-based coatings is inevitable

in Beijing and other cities, oily paint has been reduced or even stopped selling in building materials cities. It is expected that in the next 4-7 years, water-based paint will account for more than 50% of the domestic paint market. The paint industry has a constructive climate plan, which can not only protect the environment, but also promote enterprises to develop new technologies. In the context of water-based, technology upgrading of small and medium-sized coating enterprises is imminent

key words: low carbon

the WorldExpo sends a "low carbon" signal

some people say that the wave of environmental protection represented by low-carbon economy may become the fourth wave after the third wave in the world at the end of the last century, and the Copenhagen conference held on December 7 may become the starting point of this wave; Others said that the importance of this conference can be compared with the Yalta conference at the end of World War II, which will change the pattern and development mode of the global economy

the theme of the Expo to be held in Shanghai, China in 2010 is "Better City, better life". This theme obviously contains the energy conservation and environmental protection ideas that come down in one continuous line with the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. In order to achieve the "low-carbon" goal, the Shanghai WorldExpo has taken great pains in the construction of venues. At present, the first energy-saving, environmental protection and ecological technologies have been unveiled in the WorldExpo venues

the WorldExpo will bring huge orders to the coating industry, and the strict requirements on the environmental protection of coatings will also become a platform for selecting advanced environmental protection coating products. As early as before the bidding of Expo products, many coating enterprises have begun to strictly control the content of VOC, heavy metals and other harmful substances in coatings through technological innovation and process transformation; According to the climate and building characteristics, we will focus on the research and development of anti-corrosion, rust proof and energy-saving coatings

but time has entered the post Copenhagen era. When the Shanghai WorldExpo also comes to an end, what changes will your life and mine have? Where will the coating industry go? We can't predict what new technologies will come out in the future, but one thing is certain, that is, people's lives in the future should move towards more energy-saving and environmental protection, and the earth in the future should be our more vibrant home
