Minister: no new iron and steel projects within three years

Minister: greater market access needed

China's current energy consumption structure will be maintained for a long time, and industry shoulders the major task of energy-saving and emission reduction. At the same time, the "common but differentiated responsibilities" between developed and developing countries on emission reduction, the principle defined in the Kyoto Protocol, must be observed. Minister of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) Li Yizhong said on August 13.

MIIT will issue guidance on energy saving and emission reduction for key industries in the second half of 2009. In addition, they will compare main standards of energy consumption of the steel and chemical industries with that of international advanced level to find the gap so that proper efforts will be made to catch up.

Li also disclosed that among the 1,680 technological transformation projects the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has approved, energy saving and emission reduction take up a large proportion.

However, he admitted that, at present, mechanism to encourage and supervise energy saving and emission reduction needs to be improved.

China's current energy structure is not reasonable enough, and energy consumption is still relatively large, "This is definitely unsustainable," he says. In his view, China needs to develop new energy and renewable energy.

However, the present energy consumption structure, about 70% coal and 20% to 30% oil and gas, will be "irrevocable" in a very long time.

Li stressed that given the fact that developed countries have made a large amount of carbon dioxide emissions in their hundreds of years of industrialization, it is "unfair" to have developing countries bear the same responsibility now.
