Can 1 trillion yuan in three years usher in the spring of China's environmental protection industry?
in order to expand domestic demand and maintain growth, the state will raise 1 trillion yuan to develop the environmental protection industry in the next three years, which is undoubtedly a great benefit to enterprises in this field, because the intensity and determination of government investment have made these enterprises see the hope of a new round of development. However, many business people and experts also expressed cautious optimism: without the support of policies and the cultivation of market mechanisms, indiscriminate spending will only form the abnormal development of the environmental protection industryConfidence: some enterprises are gearing up for a big fight. Zhou Shengxian, Minister of environmental protection, recently said that further strengthening the construction of the ecological environment is an important measure to expand domestic demand and cultivate new growth points. According to banyuetan, in the next three years, the national investment of 1trillion yuan in the environmental protection industry will be mainly used for the development of new and renewable energy, energy conservation, water conservation, material conservation, pollution control and other industrial fields
"although the financial crisis has a certain impact on the development of enterprises, we believe that opportunities will soon 'cover' difficulties." GUI Zuhua, chief financial officer of Nanjing CLP environmental protection Co., Ltd., said with confidence that the huge investment of the state will drive the rapid development of the entire industry. Guizuhua told that as a high-tech environmental protection industrial enterprise specializing in industrial water supply treatment, condensate polishing, sewage treatment and automatic control, China Power Union has always paid close attention to the trend of national environmental protection policies, "Although the financial crisis last year caused enterprises to encounter unprecedented difficulties in capital withdrawal and business expansion, the national policies to stimulate domestic demand have strengthened the confidence of China Power Union in development. At present, we are building an environmental protection industry base with an annual output value of 1billion yuan."
like China Electricity Council, many domestic enterprises engaged in the environmental protection industry are gearing up for a big fight. Some enterprises have begun to benefit. For example, Beijing capital signed orders for the construction of seven sewage treatment plants in the first 20 days of November last year. According to the management of the company, they will build 102 sewage treatment plants in HunanBaorongxi, Deputy Secretary General of Jiangsu Environmental Protection Industry Association, said that recently, the association has often organized enterprises to hold symposiums to discuss how to deal with crises and seize opportunities. In general, enterprises are very confident in the future development. Some environmental protection experts are also very optimistic about the future of China's environmental protection industry: "during the Eleventh Five Year Plan period, the development of China's environmental protection industry is expected to maintain an average annual growth rate of 15-17%. By 2010, the total annual income of China's environmental protection industry will reach" nearly 1trillion yuan
worry: the rough industrial policy may cause "several joys and several sorrows"
in the face of rare development opportunities, some environmental protection industry enterprises and experts are not very optimistic. They are worried about whether the national investment policy is "inclusive" and whether the investment can be implementedNanjing Yunsheng New Energy Development Co., Ltd. is an enterprise specializing in the collection, purification, treatment and utilization of landfill gas. Cai Wei, the executive director, told the company that the complete set of technology adopted by the company is very advanced, which can help reduce 55000 tons of carbon dioxide and save 3500 tons of diesel oil every year. Professor chenzezhi, one of the inventors of this technology and the school of environment, Nanjing University, said that the comprehensive utilization technology of landfill gas resources adopted by Yunsheng new energy has a utilization rate of more than 90% of the methane produced by landfill sites
however, Yunsheng company has never enjoyed the national preferential policies in the process of growth, because "what we do is something others have not done, so we can't find the relevant preferential basis in the national policies". Although knowing that the government will invest a huge amount of money in the environmental protection industry, Cai Wei does not have much hope that enterprises can benefit from it
in addition to worrying about not enjoying the policy, some enterprises responsible for the operation of environmental protection facilities are not very optimistic about the future prospects. Baorongxi said that in recent years, China's environmental protection industry has achieved considerable development, but the polarization trend is also obvious: enterprises engaged in intermediate links, that is, enterprises engaged in the construction of environmental protection facilities and the provision of maintenance services, have a good development situation, while those specifically responsible for the operation of the company, the situation is not ideal. For example, although China has built many sewage treatment plants, few of them can operate at full capacity, and even less can make money
Bao Rongxi's words have been confirmed in the development of many environmental protection industry enterprises. According to Cai Wei, Yunsheng, who is engaged in specific operations, is currently in a very difficult business situation and can only rely on helping foreign companies design landfills and help them maintain their main businesses. In addition, since 2005, environmental protection companies from France, the United States and other countries have entered China for physical operations. However, after several years of operation, the performance is not ideal, and many enterprises have withdrawn
"this abnormal phenomenon actually highlights the weakness of the development of China's environmental protection industry." Guizuhua said that at present, China's environmental protection industry policy is still rough. Although it stipulates how many environmental protection facilities to build, there is a lack of market-oriented operation mechanism in the specific operation of environmental protection facilities, so that many environmental protection facilities simply cannot play their due role, and the poor operation condition is also conceivable
expectation: spending money at will can't develop the environmental protection industry
Fu Tao, a professor of the Department of environment at Tsinghua University, said that on the whole, China's environmental protection industry is still underdeveloped, with serious industrial dispersion, insufficient systematicness of industrial development policies, and imperfect price system in the industry, which has always seriously troubled the healthy development of China's environmental protection industry. Talking about the development prospect of China's environmental protection industry in the future, Cai Wei believes that the investment of 1 trillion yuan in three years shows China's determination to promote the development of environmental protection industry, and also greatly encourages the confidence of enterprises. However, as such a large-scale investor, the government must pay attention to "accelerating scientific research without violating WTO rules"
Fu Tao advocated that government investment must follow the principle of investing in areas that the market cannot serve. In addition, capital investment should not be aimed at "spending money", but should systematically consider investment and operation, pay attention to the effect of investment, focus on improving the quality of industrial development, and protect market leading forces, including private enterprises. Cai Wei told that private enterprises are most worried about the "crowding out effect" of government investment, because state investment is quick and heavy, and sometimes they lack consideration of return, or even do not ask for return at all. This is very difficult for small enterprises in the private sector, especially in the metallurgical industry, who are already weak, to design steel experiments. Maybe they will be squeezed out of the "investment cake" sharing party
"investment is important, but it is more important to have policy support." GUI Zuhua, who has been engaged in the environmental protection industry for a long time, said that some enterprises that were generally optimistic about the domestic environmental protection industry market in previous years are not developing well now. The main reason is that the relevant policies for the development of China's environmental protection industry are not in place, such as the treatment of illegal sewage enterprises is not strong, the cost of enterprise compliance is greater than the illegal cost, and the sewage treatment price is unreasonable, resulting in the situation of large-scale loss operation of environmental protection industry enterprisesBoth guizuhua and Caiwei said that preferential tax policies are also essential to stimulate the development of the environmental protection industry, and sometimes the latter may play a greater role. For many enterprises, the investment of the state may not really benefit them, but preferential policies for environmental protection enterprises can benefit the whole industry
industry insiders finally called for that the environmental protection industry is an industry with great potential, but there is still a lot of room for improvement in terms of industry supervision, enterprise entrepreneurship capacity-building, policy support, capital pull, etc. to turn the potential into real economic strength and industrial competitiveness. It is hoped that the relevant departments of the state can take a long-term view and make scientific plans from capital investment to policy support, so as to promote the healthy and rapid development of China's environmental protection industry and the increasing pressure on coal enterprises to survive
