core tip: in 2017, the rising paper price attracted much attention in the paper industry. Recently, at the "2017 China paper Sustainable Development Forum" hosted by China weekly and app (China) of China news service, industry insiders believed that under the background of the country's increasing efforts to promote supply side structural reform and environmental protection supervision, China's paper industry has achieved positive results in emission reduction, transformation and upgrading, and exploring the path of sustainable development, and green development is beginning to taste the "sweetness"
[China Packaging News] "Luoyang paper is expensive" is a true portrayal of the price rise of the paper industry this year, which to some extent shows that China's paper industry has eliminated backward production capacity that does not meet environmental protection standards, actively reduced emissions and achieved transformation and upgrading results, and green development has benefited enterprises. In the future, China's paper industry should still adhere to the investment in environmental protection, continue to increase investment in research and development, and improve the level of scientific research, so that China can move from a large paper country to a strong paper country -
in 2017, the paper industry has attracted much attention with the current rising paper price. Recently, at the "2017 China paper Sustainable Development Forum" hosted by China weekly and app (China) of China news service, industry insiders believed that under the background of the country's increasing efforts to promote supply side structural reform and environmental protection supervision, China's paper industry has achieved positive results in emission reduction, transformation and upgrading, and exploring the path of sustainable development, and green development is beginning to taste the "sweetness"
"Luoyang paper is expensive" has its ups and downs
although it was once "difficult to find a paper" in the market, the "Luoyang paper is expensive" is not the whole picture of the paper industry. According to Zhao Wei, chairman of the China Paper Association, the real face of the industry is "happy and worried"
the good news is that according to statistics, from January to September this year, China's paper industry (including pulp, paper and paper products) achieved a main revenue of 1176.1 billion yuan, of which the paper industry achieved a main revenue of 713.74 billion yuan, with a growth rate of 15.95%; The realized profit was 47.8 billion yuan, and the actual profit margin reached 6.7%. The worry is, "the profit margin of the paper industry is only slightly higher than the overall profit level of 6.4% of the light industry, far less than the profit margin of 12% of the brewing industry and about 10% of the daily chemical industry." Guoyongxin, Deputy Secretary General of China Light Industry Federation, said
surprisingly, under the circumstance that the outside world thinks that the paper-making enterprises have made a lot of profits this year, the survey of more than 2000 paper-making enterprises across the country by the China Paper Association shows that the loss of the industry this year has reached 15% to 16%. "The paper industry is a highly market-oriented industry. Although the prices of packaging paper and other varieties have risen rapidly, some varieties still perform poorly." Zhao Wei believes that the market will stabilize next year
"do not break, do not stand", said caochunyu, Secretary General of the China papermaking association. This is caused by the problems accumulated in the papermaking industry for a long time. In the future, only those powerful enterprises can survive
achieve green development
as a traditional major polluter, the paper industry has gone through a green transformation and development path of "increasing production without increasing pollution" under the "hoop curse" of environmental protection
"in 2006, the COD emission per 10000 yuan output value of the paper industry was 54 kg; by 2016, this figure was reduced to 5 kg. In the past 10 years, the COD reduction rate of the paper industry has reached more than 90%, accounting for more than 50% of the total COD emission reduction in the country." Zhao Wei told economy that now many paper mills can even raise fish from the treated wastewater
"in recent years, the annual investment scale of fixed assets in the paper industry has been 1 parallel port micro printer interface, which has remained at about 280billion yuan, but the total output and efficiency have increased very little, and most of the money has been invested in environmental protection." Guoyongxin said that this reflects from one side that environmental protection has become a matter of life and death for paper enterprises. This year's rise in paper prices, on the one hand, is due to the shutdown of backward production capacity that does not meet environmental protection standards. On the other hand, it also allows enterprises that have been willing to invest in environmental protection in recent years to "cash environmental protection checks"Jia Feng, director of the publicity and education center of the Ministry of environmental protection, believes that in recent years, the proportion of more than three types of water bodies in the country has increased significantly, and the emission reduction of pollutants in the paper industry has made an important contribution to the improvement of China's water environmental quality. "Take off the 'black hat' and realize 'green development'. China's paper industry has gradually embarked on the path of green development."
"the key to the sustainable development of the paper industry lies in the second error of raw materials." According to Wang Wei, director of China Forest Certification Commission and former executive deputy director of the science and technology development center of the State Forestry Administration, China's forest certification system has been in line with international standards since 2014. "It is suggested to strengthen the promotion through government procurement, hoping that consumers can choose products with forest certification to realize green consumption." Wang Wei said
moving towards a strong papermaking country
"at present, China's per capita consumption level of paper products is only 75 kg, which is far from the per capita consumption level of 200 kg in developed countries." Zhao Wei said. It is understood that there are more than 5000 kinds of products in the world paper industry at present, and China can only produce less than 700 of them. China's paper enterprises still have great potential in implementing the "increasing varieties" in the "three products" strategy of the Ministry of industry and information technologyZhai Jingli, vice president of golden light paper (China) Investment Co., Ltd., said that the needs of downstream users of the paper industry are becoming more and more diversified, personalized and functional. For example, the performance requirements of products in waterproof, antibacterial, mildew proof and other aspects are increased; At the same time, the terminal market, including the printing factory, is developing from mass production to small-scale customization. The original production mode can no longer meet the needs of users. Enterprises must continue to strengthen research and development and embark on the road of intelligent production, intelligent logistics and intelligent service
it is gratifying that in 2016, China's paper technology innovation competitiveness was the most prominent, ranking first in the world again; China is far ahead in the number of paper-making scientific and technological papers, ranking first with 589 papers, accounting for 20.6% of the total number of paper-making scientific and technological papers in the world, more than twice the 249 papers in the second place in the United States. "This shows that as a major papermaking country, China is paying more and more attention to the research of papermaking science and technology, and is accelerating its catch-up." Cao Chunyu said
at the same time, Chinese paper enterprises are also increasing investment in R & D and rapidly improving the level of scientific research. Hengfeng Paper (9.050,0.09,1.00%), taigelin paper, Guangzhou paper, Huatai Group, Fujian Nanping Paper and other leading enterprises have performed well. From 2012 to 2016, the number of China's participation in International Paper Science and technology research cooperation increased significantly, becoming a dual core alongside the United States
in recent years, "forest paper integration" has gradually become an important development direction of the paper industry. More and more paper-making enterprises are "going out" to get close to the "two ends" of raw material origin and sales area to reduce costs. Jia Feng believes that the invitation of the United States to Chinese paper enterprises to set up factories in the United States shows that the progress of Chinese paper enterprises in technology, management and other aspects has been recognized, reflecting the negative effect of the supply side structural reform on the paper industry to embark on a green and innovative development path
