KIT TRENT Innovation Day
A Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) delegation visited GAMI in China for the first time in more than three years.
Besides valuable insights into green energy and sustainable industry practices, new valuable professional connections were forged.
As the next trip is almost planned already the three main lessons of the visit have been:
✔️ Commitment to green electricity leads to renewable energy development: Commitment to a overall purchased volume for the year directly contributes to the development of new capacities for renewables, and the premium for renewable electricity is only 6%.
✔️ Increase in environmental technology startups in China: The number of environmental technology startup foundations increased almost four times from 2020 to 2021, highlighting the huge influence of policy-making on the industry.
✔️ Industrial parks in China drive eco-industrial parks for a more sustainable future: The detailed planning of industrial parks in China provides an excellent platform for driving eco-industrial parks that promote a more sustainable industrial system through industrial symbiosis. These parks can help companies reduce raw materials and waste disposal costs, earn revenue from residues and by-products, and reduce carbon emissions.
