Recently, the Ministry of Environmental Protection issued the "National Environmental Protection "12th Five-Year" Science and Technology Development Plan. According to the "Planning", the research focus of pollution prevention technology has shifted from terminal governance to full control. In the future, the Ministry of Environmental Protection will also increase the investment in environmental protection funds through “water special projects” to vigorously carry out research and development and promotion of advanced environmental protection technologies, self-cleaning filter equipment and products, and guide and foster the healthy development of strategic emerging environmental protection industries. Therefore, it provides high valuation expectation for leading enterprises with environmental monitoring and water, atmosphere and solid waste with strong independent research and development capabilities.
Among the investment quotas for the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” environmental protection technology, the water pollution prevention and control field accounted for a quarter of the total proportion. The plan points out that the self-developed self-cleaning filter water pollution control technology, water ecological monitoring and drinking water purification and transportation complete sets of processes and equipment. The technical leaders in the field of water pollution control will receive national key support, and they can also seize market opportunities in the wave of technology localization in the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan”.
During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, a large amount of capital was invested in cultivating environmental protection industries in strategic emerging industries. Among them, including the implementation of major national special projects such as “water special projects”, improve the localization rate of equipment, reduce costs, and form market competitiveness; focus on waste treatment, self-cleaning filter sewage treatment, soil remediation, environmental monitoring, etc. Develop a number of key water treatment technologies and water filtration equipment; develop and demonstrate a number of new environmentally friendly materials, pharmaceuticals and environmentally friendly products.
During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, investment and strategic layout will be focused on six aspects, including drinking water safety, air pollution, heavy metal pollution, soil pollution, rural ecological remediation and environmental integration capacity building. In terms of water pollution prevention and control, the basin water treatment water pollution control technology and water environment management technology system were basically established, and the water quality in the key watershed demonstration areas was significantly improved. Focusing on urban sewage and garbage treatment, flue gas desulfurization and denitrification, and hazardous waste treatment and disposal, we will explore and establish market-oriented, socialized mechanisms and models for the construction and operation of pollution prevention facilities, and develop an integrated environmental service industry that provides system solutions. The plan also stated that it is necessary to vigorously improve the technical level of environmental technology services such as environmental investment and financing, clean production audit, environmental monitoring services, green product certification assessment, technical consultation and personnel training, and develop an integrated environmental service industry that provides system solutions.
The comprehensive capabilities of water pollution environmental protection technologies, equipment and services will be greatly enhanced during the 12th Five-Year Plan period. With the increase in the self-cleaning rate of domestic self-cleaning filter environmental protection equipment manufacturing, enterprises will be able to reduce the cost of equipment introduction and take the initiative in the market. The plan also proposes that by the end of the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan”, a number of key technologies for environmental pollutant control and ecological protection with core competitiveness should be developed, and green economy, circular economy development models and key technologies in key areas and key industries should be proposed. At the same time, we will guide and nurture more than five environmental industry-university-research alliances, innovate watersheds and regional pollution control mechanisms, and promote the organic integration of production, education and research.
