Copper will become a "green" hero

at the 2016 China industrial product ecological (green) design and green manufacturing annual conference held a few days ago, Zhou Sheng, President of the International Copper Association in China, pointed out that copper, with its excellent conductivity, ductility and corrosion resistance, can be applied to wind power, air source heat pump systems, high-efficiency motor systems, and the density directly decreases from 1.04 g/cm3 to 0.91 g/m3 Energy conservation and emission reduction in many fields, such as high-efficiency transformers and copper tube air conditioning systems

the use of plastic shopping bags in supermarkets and shopping malls of the International Copper Association has generally decreased by more than 2/3. There are three main types of work in the field of green manufacturing. It is well known that the first is research work, the second is the promotion of efficient technology, and the third is the promotion of material conservation. "For example, the promotion of high-efficiency transformers, high-efficiency motors, high-efficiency air conditioners, etc. these products are greener in terms of life cycle evaluation. For example, the operation stage of high-efficiency motors accounts for 90% of the impact on the whole life cycle, while 10% is in manufacturing. In this way, even if its materials will be consumed a little more, the impact on the whole life cycle is smaller, that is, greener." Zhou Sheng said that taking the wind power field as an example, copper can provide efficient and low-cost solutions for the new "compact high-power direct drive wind turbine" to be developed

it is reported that the International Copper Association in 191 In 1999, the project of "health, environment and sustainable development" was launched, and technical support was continuously provided for the government and industry. From 2013 to 2015, the International Copper Association preliminarily found that compared with aluminum alloy power cables, copper power cables have more advantages in energy consumption, material consumption and environmental impact
