People’s Daily Online: uma pesquisa do Instituto de Zoologia de Kumming mostrou um aumento estável da população de pavões verdes, uma espécie ameaçada de extinção

Published

on

O pavão verde é uma espécie de ave nativa da China. Ela foi listada como espécie ameaçada de extinção em 1988, como vulnerável em 1994, e foi atualizada para espécie ameaçada em 2009 na Lista vermelha de espécies ameaçadas da IUCN.

Para proteger e salvar o pavão verde selvagem, o governo de Yunnan o listou como uma “Espécie com população minúscula” na província de Yunnan em 2009, destinou fundos especiais e adotou uma série de medidas para fortalecer a proteção do pavão verde e do seu habitat. Enquanto isso, o trabalho de construção de uma base de inseminação artificial com a ajuda do centro de reprodução e resgate da vida selvagem de Yunnan e a realização de pesquisas sobre inseminação artificial com a cooperação de unidades de pesquisa científica relevantes alcançaram sucesso preliminar. Depois que o número da população de pavões verdes gerados por inseminação artificial atingir um determinado nível, a domesticação no campo e outros trabalhos serão iniciados, e também serão elaborados planos para soltar o pavão verde na área de distribuição em potencial.

Graças às medidas de proteção eficazes, a população do pavão verde está estável e aumentando. Os dados mostram que Yunnan tinha cerca de 485 a 547 pavões verdes em 2018, e 555 a 600 indivíduos de 2019 a 2021. Entre eles, os pavões verdes selvagens estavam mais concentrados nas áreas do vale da parte de cima e do meio do rio Yuanjiang, onde a população também é a maior. De acordo com os resultados de câmeras infravermelhas e monitoramento por vídeo em várias reservas da natureza, nos últimos anos, há uma tendência de mudança e crescimento de algumas das áreas em que o pavão verde de Yunnan habita.

LONGi announces “Net-zero Plant” pledge at UN biodiversity conference

Published

on

With the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss growing, the realization of global sustainable development has reached a crossroads. As the only solar energy company invited to attend the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15), LONGi firmly believes that photovoltaics can change the earth’s ecology and contribute to biodiversity protection.

“Climate change has an all-round impact on biodiversity, and unreasonable energy development modes represent a key factor leading to climate change and increasing biodiversity issues,” said Li, going on to add that LONGi is a staunch supporter of climate action, in the belief that photovoltaics plus energy storage can be a powerful weapon to mitigate climate change. The company has taken the lead in promoting the reduction in cost and increase in efficiency of photovoltaic products, reducing the cost of photovoltaic power generation by more than 90% over the past decade, providing technical support for the achievement of carbon peak and neutrality goals.

LONGi launched its “Solar for Solar” concept in December 2018, based on manufacturing photovoltaic products driven by photovoltaic power generation, with the objective of extending the role of PV in ecological restoration. The concept had originated in Yunnan Province, where LONGi was the first PV company to establish a base, going on to play a leading role in the development of the province’s new energy industry.

In 2020, LONGi successively joined RE100, EV100, EP100 and Scientific Carbon Target (SBTi), becoming the only Chinese solar technology company to join four international initiatives at the same time. The company’s Baoshan production base, in effect the first “Net-zero Plant”, was also a concrete implementation of the four initiatives, and can be viewed as the starting point for “Net-zero LONGi”.

Yunnan is the province with the most abundant green energy in China. Installed capacity  accounts for 85%, with power generation from green energy reaching 90%, laying a very solid foundation for building a net-zero plant.

“We are planning on two years to achieve zero emissions within the operational scope of the LONGi Baoshan base by purchasing green power, energy-saving technological transformation and carbon emission offset measures.” Li divided the realization of the “Net- zero Plant” into four steps: Firstly, ensuring that 100% of the Baoshan base utilises green power throughout the year; secondly, completing the production technology transformation of the base’s carbon deposition materials to significantly reduce natural gas leakage; thirdly, promoting green production in the base and, finally, purchasing Chinese Certified Emission Reduction (CCER) to offset carbon emissions that cannot be completely eliminated.

Li concluded: “LONGi will always be a defender of and contributor to ecological harmony, sparing no effort to achieve net-zero targets, promote global energy transformation and join hands with partners from all walks of life to jointly realize this vision.”

Sinopec coloca em operação o maior cluster de armazenamento de gás do norte da China com fornecimento de dez bilhões de metros cúbicos de armazenamento de gás

Published

on

A instalação de armazenamento de gás tem capacidade de 10,03 bilhões de  metros cúbicos e será uma importante garantia de recursos para armazenamento de gás e geração de energia em horários de pico do inverno até a primavera na região norte da China e na bacia do rio Amarelo, além de garantir um suprimento de gás estável.

O cluster de armazenamento de gás Zhongyuan da Sinopec agora tem três blocos, o Wen 23, o Wen 96 e o Wei 11. A instalação de armazenamento de gás Wei 11, que agora está instalada e em funcionamento, é um componente fundamental para estabelecer o cluster de armazenamento de gás natural que chega a dez bilhões de metros cúbicos. O bloco está localizado na junção das províncias de Henan e Shandong e tem capacidade projetada de 1,009 bilhão de metros cúbicos. A maior capacidade de geração de energia em horários de pico diário da instalação de armazenamento de gás Wei 11 é de cinco milhões de metros cúbicos, o que pode atender às demandas de gás de dez milhões de residências todos os dias.

Além disso, a Sinopec terá suas instalações de armazenamento de gás Wen 13 West e Bai 9 na região do campo petrolífero de Zhongyuan instaladas e em funcionamento até o final deste ano, após concluir a construção e injeção de gás, adicionando uma capacidade de armazenamento de gás estimada em 1,116 bilhões de metros cúbicos, aumentando ainda mais os recursos da empresa em armazenamento de gás e geração de energia em horários de pico.

O armazenamento de gás é um “banco de gás natural” subterrâneo, uma infraestrutura de energia que integra geração de energia em horários de pico sazonais, fornecimento de gás em casos de acidente de emergência e reservas nacionais de energia estratégica. À medida que a proporção de gás natural continua a expandir na estrutura de consumo de energia da China, os picos e vales do fornecimento de gás natural, bem como as diferenças sazonais, estão se tornando cada vez mais evidentes. O armazenamento de gás pode “depositar” o excedente de gás natural no mercado e “empurrar” o tempo de escassez de abastecimento durante a estação de aquecimento no inverno para garantir a geração de energia em horários de pico de demanda por gás natural.

A Sinopec continua acelerando a construção de instalações de armazenamento de gás e aprimorando os recursos de armazenamento de gás e de geração de energia em horários de pico na China. A empresa está se preparando para concluir projetos importantes, incluindo o cluster de armazenamento de gás Zhongyuan e a instalação de armazenamento de gás Huangchang na província de Hubei e muito mais, após a conclusão das instalações de armazenamento de gás, incluindo Yong 21, na província de Shandong, Wei 11, na região do campo petrolífero de Zhongyuan, Guxi, na província de Jilin e Qingxi, na província de Sichuan, expandindo continuamente a escala de armazenamento de gás natural e aprimorando efetivamente a capacidade de armazenamento e os recursos de geração de energia em horários de pico de gás para garantir o fornecimento de gás natural.
