Yili Prefecture promotes coal-to-clean energy projects
Yili News Network (Reporter Meng Xia) On September 24, the coal-to-bio-fuel boiler project in the sheep farm area of Qapqal Xibe Autonomous County has been completed, and workers are carrying out boiler cleaning and pipeline maintenance projects. Wait another 20 days, heating work will officially start. This is just a microcosm of the coal-to-clean energy project in Yili Prefecture.
The boilers in the sheep farm area are responsible for heating 30,000 square meters of 280 households in the area of government agencies, institutions and shops. The coal-to-clean energy boiler renovation project started in April this year.
"In the beginning we designed several plans. The electricity was changed, but the lines were not matched; the gas was changed without a gas source. Finally, it was agreed to change the bio-fuel boiler." Niu Xiaowu, a member of the Party Committee of the Sheep Farm Area, told reporters that although the boiler renovation requires nearly 400,000 yuan, The cost of using biofuels is more than three times that of using coal, but this is a project of people’s livelihood and people’s hearts. Ecological and social benefits cannot be measured by money.
Following the release of the "Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan" issued by the State Council, the autonomous region issued the "Three-Year Action Plan for Winning the Blue Sky Defense War (2018-2020)" in 2018. The autonomous prefecture actively promotes the transformation of coal-fired boilers, intensifies the elimination of small coal-fired boilers, and follows the transformation principles of electricity for electricity, gas for gas, and biofuel for biofuels.
The State Administration of Market Supervision actively followed up, vigorously promote the development of clean energy in the autonomous prefecture by providing technical guidance to enterprises, helping enterprises formulate rectification plans, and sending working groups to enterprises to promote rectification work. Up to now, the autonomous prefecture’s large-scale boilers have fully completed the construction of desulfurization towers to reduce air pollution emissions, and at the same time, 564 unqualified pressure-bearing small boilers have been dismantled and modified. Currently, the autonomous prefecture has 171 clean fuel boilers such as natural gas and biomass in operation.
The reporter learned that the autonomous prefecture has comprehensively promoted the reform of coal to clean energy heating, which has greatly reduced coal pollution and improved air quality. According to data provided by the State Ecological Environment Bureau, the number of good days in Yining City in 2019 was 297, an increase of 6.5% compared with 2018. The average concentration of PM2.5 dropped by 16% year-on-year. From January to August 2020, this set of figures has changed more significantly. This rise and fall shows the obvious results of environmental governance in the autonomous prefecture.
