The compilation of "green building materials catalogue" is urgent! Many members of the "two sessions" issued an appeal to promote the development of green building materials industry: accelerate the development of green building materials, strengthen the construction of standard certification system, and compile and release the catalogue of green building materials products as soon as possible. While actively promoting catalog products, eliminate technologically backward products. "Green" is the only choice. Data show that China's building materials industry consumes 5 billion tons of raw materials and 0.23 billion tons of coal every year, accounting for about 15.8 percent of the country's total energy consumption, consuming more than 150000 mu of fertile land, 0.1096 billion cubic meters of waste emissions and 335 tons of waste water.

Green is the only option.

Data show that China's building materials industry consumes 5 billion tons of raw materials and 0.23 billion tons of coal every year, accounting for about 15.8 percent of the country's total energy consumption, consuming more than 150000 mu of fertile land, 0.1096 billion cubic meters of waste discharge and 335 tons of waste water discharge. Cement, lime and traditional wall materials emit about 0.66 billion tons of carbon monoxide, accounting for about 40% of the country's industrial emissions of carbon monoxide. Continuing to develop in accordance with the extensive model will have a greater impact on the ecological environment.

Qin Shengyi, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and chairman of Beijing Renchuang Technology Group, introduced that in foreign countries, people generally advocate returning to nature and pay attention to the protection of "green consumption". The total amount of consumption is also increasing year by year. When buying goods, people first consider the "greenness" of the goods. Degree ", and are willing to pay 30% to 100 more for it. In international trade, restrictions on imports have formed an emerging" trade barrier "in international trade".

Qin Shengyi said, "Green building materials to meet the needs of sustainable development, in the context of China's lack of resources, serious environmental pollution, the development of green building materials, is the inevitable way to achieve the unity of development and the environment. The compilation of the Green Building Materials Catalogue is urgent."

Luo Jiajun, member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and deputy director of the Tianjin Binhai New Area Tourism Zone Management Committee, put forward suggestions that while promoting the development of green buildings, it is necessary to develop and promote the core technologies and energy-saving building materials of green buildings, and actively promote the innovation of individual technologies of green buildings. Industrialization bases for green building materials, products and facilities should be built. Give full play to the role of government funds and social capital participation to promote the development of green building materials, energy conservation and environmental protection industries.

Standard specification seriously lags behind

"At present, the development of green building materials lags behind, standards and norms are lagging behind, and the development and application of green building materials are not enough." Li Jingxian, member of the CPPCC National Committee and member of the Central Standing Committee of the China Democratic League, said at the two sessions.

The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposed to promote the benign interaction between industrialization and urbanization, and vigorously build ecological civilization. The State Council also promulgated the "Green Building Action Plan." According to relevant plans, my country will build 1 billion square meters of new green buildings in the next three years; by the end of 2015, 20% of new urban buildings will meet green building standards.

Li Jingxian introduced that green building materials are the material basis for the development of green buildings, an important starting point for the construction of ecological civilization, an important direction for the transformation and upgrading of the building materials industry, and an important way to achieve energy conservation, emission reduction and carbon intensity reduction. The health of the living environment is the foothold. However, at present, the development of green building materials is lagging behind, the standards and specifications are even lagging behind, and the development and application of green building materials are not enough. It is urgent to interact with upstream and downstream and strengthen the construction of standard certification system to meet the development needs of green buildings and building energy conservation.

Li Jingxian said that the "Green Building Action Plan" should be implemented to realize the healthy and sustainable development of the building materials industry, guide the development of the green building materials industry, and promote the structural adjustment of the building materials industry; centering on the development needs of green buildings, based on the technological progress of the building materials industry, and taking standards and specifications as the starting point, to promote the development and application of green building materials, which is not only conducive to energy conservation and emission reduction in the use, but also conducive to the use. To this end, it is very timely and necessary to introduce green building materials certification standards and certification systems that are conducive to guiding the circular development, green development, and low-carbon development of the building materials industry, and to compile and publish a catalog of green building materials products that support the development of green buildings and energy-saving buildings.

To this end, Li Jingxian suggested: First, give priority to the large amount of building materials needed for green buildings, and speed up the research and formulation of relevant green certification standards and certification methods. Second, gradually compile and release the catalogue of green building materials, guide the development of green building materials, and support the construction of green buildings. Third, we should pay attention to the linkage between production and use, speed up the revision of existing standards and norms that are not conducive to the promotion of green products, encourage the technological progress of green building materials with advanced standards and norms, and speed up industrial development and transformation and upgrading.

Guide the development of green building materials

On January 15, 2013, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development jointly issued the "Green Building Action Plan", and the compilation of the "Green Building Materials Product Catalog" was also fully launched. In Qin Shengyi's view, the "Plan" will guide the development of the green building materials industry and promote the structural adjustment of the building materials industry. The "Catalog" will be of great significance in guiding the circular development, green development, and low-carbon development of the building materials industry.

"However, China's green building materials are still in the initial stage, the degree of development is low, and there are still many problems in the development." Qin Shengyi said, for example, the current green building materials product catalog issued by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development is basically proposed by various industries, and then solicited opinions, and then reviewed by experts. In the absence of unified technical standard requirements, the subjectivity is strong; at the same time, green The lack of supervision in the building promotion process, and real small enterprises cannot get subsidies; in addition, the overall development level of my country's green building materials market is poor, the green building materials market has not yet formed a "one-stop" supporting market system of production, sales and service, and the proportion of green building materials products in the whole building materials market is very small. China plans to 2020 green building new building is not important more than 30%, and Europe and the United States developed building materials products to reach the "green" standard has more than 90%, still far.

What's more serious is that Qin Shengyi's research found that there are not many enterprises engaged in the production of green building materials, their strength is not strong, and their financing ability is poor. It is difficult to raise the necessary funds for enterprises to develop and produce green building materials products in the capital market. This has led to the phenomenon that although the potential demand for green building materials market is huge, the theoretical circle and the government environment actively advocate, and consumers also need the popularization of green building materials products, in fact, green building materials production enterprises do not develop according to the needs of the current situation.

Therefore, Qin Shengyi suggested that the relevant departments should sort out the establishment of green building materials standard system and the corresponding certification measures. In this process, we should give priority to the building materials needed by green buildings, speed up the research and formulation of their green certification standards and certification methods, gradually compile and release the catalogue of green building materials, guide the development of green building materials and support the construction of green buildings, pay attention to the linkage of production and use, and speed up the revision of existing standards and norms that are not conducive to the promotion of green products. Use advanced standards to encourage technological progress in green building materials and speed up industrial development and transformation and upgrading. While actively promoting catalog products, eliminate technologically backward products. Increase the proportion of green building materials products in the whole building materials market, so that the proportion of green building materials products in China gradually approaches and eventually reaches the level of developed countries in Europe and America.

Positive action by the two sectors

The reporter learned from the Department of Raw Materials of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology that on the eve of the two sessions, Pan Aihua, deputy director of the Department of Raw Materials of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and Song Youchun, deputy director of the Department of Standards and Quota of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, have jointly led a research team to accelerate the development of green building materials, promote energy conservation and emission reduction in the building materials industry, etc. Carry out on-site research.

It is reported that the two departments will further strengthen the linkage, focus on the development needs of green buildings, based on the technological progress of the building materials industry, and use standards and specifications as the starting point to jointly promote the development and application of green building materials such as high-performance concrete, which is conducive to energy conservation and emission reduction in the production process. It is also conducive to energy conservation, environmental protection and safe life extension in use.

According to reports, the two departments plan to focus on the following work in the next step: first, give priority to the building materials needed by green buildings, and speed up the research and formulation of their green certification standards and certification methods. The second is to gradually compile and issue a catalog of green building materials to guide the development of green building materials and support the construction of green buildings. The third is to pay attention to the linkage between production and use, speed up the revision of existing standards and norms that are not conducive to the promotion of green products, and use advanced standards to encourage technological progress in green building materials and accelerate industrial development and transformation and upgrading.
