New emission reduction policy to benefit china's bio-energy industry

  1. 1. www.cnchemicals.com New emission-reduction policy to benefit Chinas bio-energy industryOn January 19, 2011, the Chinese central government proposed to continue intensifying the demand for"energy-saving and emission-reduction" in the Twelfth Five-Year (2011-2015) Plan. This act is expected tohelp create great commercial opportunity for the domestic bio-energy industry in 2011-2015.The demand for "energy-saving and emission-reduction" can help lead more investments into the bio-energyindustry, because the development of bio-energy industry is beneficial to "energy-saving andemission-reduction" in turn, typical cases of which are electricity generation from agricultural or forestresidues instead of coal as feedstock and fuel-ethanol partially replacing gasoline.Besides the bio-energy industry, "energy-saving and emission-reduction" also promotes the development ofmany other related industries. According to the report published on January 27, 2011, namely “2010Development report of Chinese energy-saving and emission-reduction industries”, the industries concerning"energy-saving and emission-reduction" can be seen as a new economic growth point in 2011-2015. Thestatistics from China Environment Service Industry Association showed that the growth rate of output valuefrom these industries reached above 15% in 2010 over 2006, and it was estimated to reach 20% in 2015 over2011. Based on the 20% growth rate, the output value from these industries could be almost USD796 billion,taking up 10% of GDP by 2015.According to Industrial Biotechnologies China News, Published by CCM International, Ltd., the industriesconcerning energy-saving and emission-reduction have gradually developed under a series of governmentalpolicies (like fiscal policies) since 2007. For example, aiming to promote the environmental-friendly industries,China canceled the export rebates of 553 products concerning high energy & resource consumption and highpollution-emission on July 1, 2007. After restoring some tax rebates in response to the global financial crisis in2008, China canceled again the export rebates of 406 products (some of them maybe overlapped with the 553products) on July 15, 2010.Moreover, currently all the enterprises engaged in "energy-saving and environmental protection" are entitled tofull deduction of income tax in the first three years upon companys establishment and half deduction in thefourth to sixth year upon companys establishment. On the investment side, China is estimated by insiders toinvest about USD454 billion in environmental protection during 2011-2015, two times of that in 2006-2010.More related favorable governmental policies are expected to be released gradually in 2011.All these favorable policies can help direct the domestic and foreign investment into the energy-saving andemission-reduction industries including bio-energy industry.Besides Chinese enterprises, China also greatly encourages foreign enterprises to invest in "energy-saving andenvironmental protection" fields. In April 2010, a document from the State Council of PRC was officiallyissued to better the utilization of foreign investment. The document lists 20 favorable measures for foreigninvestors, which mandates that China should encourage foreign investors in some fields, such as new energy,energy saving & environmental protection, high-end manufacturing, high technology, etc. Meanwhile, all theinvestments in fields like high energy and resource consumption, high pollution-emission, etc., are strictlyNeed more information or to purchase this report, please contact CCM at econtact@cnchemicals.com or on +86 20 37616606
  2. 2. www.cnchemicals.comprohibited. China also encourages foreign investments in the Midwest areas.In the aspect of fair competition, the document also mandates that any foreign investor in China is entitled tothe same preferential policies as Chinese enterprises as long as the enterprises can live up to the correspondingconditions. Also, the products from foreign investors will be fairly treated when the governmental purchase iscarried on. These commitments can make China win lots of credits from abroad and create a healthyinvestment environment. In fact, the foreign investment had been positively growing in 16 successive monthsby November 2010. By now, China is considered to be one of the most attracting host countries for investors.Notes:(1) The demand for "energy-saving and emission-reduction" originated from the outline of the EleventhFive-Year (2006-2010) Plan for National Economic and Social Development and was seen as the fundamentalsteps for China to become the environment-friendly society.(2) "Energy-saving and emission-reduction industries" are defined as all the related industries to"energy-saving and emission-reduction" work by this report. These industries include three categories:energy-saving industries, environmental protection industries and new energy industries (like solar energy,wind power, bio-energy).CCM’s Industrial Biotechnologies China News athttp://www.cnchemicals.com/Newsletter/IndustrialBiotechnologyNews.shtmlAbout Industrial Biotechnology China NewsIndustrial Biotechnologies China News focuses on biofuels, bio-products, bio-based chemicals, bio-materialsand industrial biotechnology applications, offers latest investment hotspots, new technology & product,company & market dynamics, and government regulations, aiming to facilitate your insight into Chinasindustrial biotechnology.About CCMCCM is dedicated to market research in China, Asia-Pacific Rim and global market.
