Sharing of experience and effectiveness of green factory establishment


Intensification of land use

Through proper layout of the plant and optimisation of processes, the company has been able to maximise the input-output ratio, land allocation and utilisation efficiency and increase the degree of intensive land use. At present, the floor area ratio of the plant and office building is 1.0045; the building density is 47.24%, and the output per unit of land area is 22,672.57 tonnes/hectare.


Harmless raw material

The company's products adhere to the concept of green development as the lead, through reduction and substitution, etc., the use of toxic and harmful substances is minimised to reduce the impact on the product and the environment to a minimum. For unqualified raw materials, the company will carry out specialised treatment to make them meet the quality and standard requirements to achieve 100% green raw materials.


Clean production

The production process is controlled at source, with systematic optimisation and process control, and advanced clean production technology is used to reduce pollutants, ensuring that the number of pollutants produced per unit of product is below the industry average, avoiding impact on the environment.


Waste becomes resource

Through professional technical and management measures, residual substances and energy are extracted from the waste and then can be used after professional treatment, thus reducing the use of raw materials and water resources, achieving low resource consumption and reducing pressure on the ecological environment. Currently, Hope Hydropower's comprehensive utilisation rate of industrial solid waste has reached 100%.


Low carbon energy
