"New technology to improve the efficiency of water-saving"
- technological innovation to change the cycle from the source
Circular economy is a requirement to help users get rid of linear resource consumption, especially for those who can not be recycled materials and energy, in accordance with the concept of circular economy needs to be modified by means of technology.
In Canada, Clara fiber technologies, Inc. (CRAILARTECHNOLOGIES) through the technical improvement, the use of flax, hemp and other bast fiber production of renewable environmentally friendly biomaterials in lieu of cotton, avoid and cotton planting related environmental risk. The water-saving transformation function is especially obvious. It is reported that the production of 1 kg of cotton was supposed to cost 0.2 million - 2.9 million liters of water, and the production of same production of 1 kg of environmental protection materials only 17 liters of water.
Unilever North Asia Chairman Ma Ruiwen, in ecological civilization Guiyang International Forum held recently proposed, "in fact polystyrene recycling is choice, you should not have recycling concept, all the material itself should to be used once again." In recent years, they are committed to the use of certain processes and packaging changes in the production of the first to reduce the use of products produced by consumers. The goal is to reduce packaging waste by 29% by 2020.
For example, Unilever will be added to the laundry detergent, softener, shampoo and other loading as a measure to change, only this one reduces the use of plastics packaging in 70% of the, can reduce consumer products produced 50% of greenhouse gases - 85%; at the same time, modular packaging line, also make all mold repeated use beverage cartons dewatering.
This concept fully reflects the circular economy "3R" (reduce, reuse, recycling (recycle) principles of reduction principle, that is, through the reducing access to the process of production and consumption of mass, from the source to saving resources and reducing pollutant emissions.
Experts believe that, in fact, in the "3R" principle, the reduction should always be in the first place, and the whole process must be non-toxic, harmless.
