Application of large-scale air separation technology to promote energy conservation and carbon reduction in key areas

Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, and the National Energy Administration jointly issued the Implementation Guide for Energy-Saving and Carbon Reduction Transformation and Upgrading in Key Fields of Energy-intensive Industries (2022). It is required to strictly implement laws and regulations related to energy conservation, environmental protection, quality, safety technology and other policies such as the Catalogue for the Guidance of Industrial Restructuring, and eliminate backward process technologies and production devices that do not meet the requirements of green and low-carbon transformation and development according to laws and regulations. For the capacity whose energy efficiency is below the benchmark level, and it is difficult to achieve above the benchmark level through transformation and upgrading within the specified time limit, we will promote its rapid exit through market-oriented and legal means.
