Fangpusun is on the move to reduce carbon emissions
In 2021, on the opening day of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference（COP26）, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) released the interim Global Climate Report for 2021 (January-September).
In the interim report:
In January-September 2021, the global average temperature was 1.09℃ higher than that in 1850-1900.
Global concentrations of greenhouse gases reached a record high in January-September 2021.
From January to September 2021, the temperature at a depth of 2,000 meters in the upper ocean reached the highest point on record.
In 2021, sea ice extent across the Arctic reached a record low and the rate of melting doubled.
The rate at which North American glaciers are melting has nearly doubled since the early 2000s.
The average annual sea level rise from 2013 to 2021 is 4.4 millimeters, twice the rate of the 1993-2002 period.
From the above brief data, we can probably draw a platitude conclusion: global climate is warming and affecting human survival and development. But at 26th UN Climate Change Conference（COP26） last year, a goal was set to achieve global net zero emissions by the middle of the century.
Major greenhouse gases and their sources
Carbon dioxide（CO2 ）is the most important greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, accounting for about 66％ of the warming effect. It is produced mainly from the burning of fossil fuels, cement production and the breathing of life.
In 2020, the global average concentration of CO2 reached a new high of 413.2 PPM. From 2019 to 2020, CO2 growth was slightly smaller than from 2018 to 2019, but higher than the average annual growth rate over the past decade. CO2 emissions from fossil fuels fell by about 5.6% in 2020 as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.
Methane （CH4）is a powerful greenhouse gas that stays in the atmosphere for about a decade.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), CH4 accounts for about 16％ of the long-acting greenhouse gas warming effect. About 40% of methane is released into the atmosphere from natural sources (such as wetlands and termites), and about 60% comes from anthropogenic sources (such as ruminants, rice farming, fossil fuel extraction, landfills and biomass burning).
Nitrous oxide（N2O） is both a powerful greenhouse gas and an ozone-depleting chemical, accounting for about 7% of greenhouse gases.
N2O emissions to the atmosphere are of both natural (about 60%) and man-made (about 40%) sources, including oceans, soil, biomass burning, fertilizer use and various industrial processes.
The global average N2O mole fraction in 2020 reached 333.2 PPB, an increase of 1.2 PPB compared with 2019. The annual increase from 2019 to 2020 was higher than the increase from 2018 to 2019 and higher than the average growth rate over the past 10 years (0.99 PPB per year).
Global anthropogenic N2O emissions, mainly nitrogen added to farmland, have increased by 30% in the past 40 years. Agriculture accounts for 70% of all anthropogenic N2O emissions due to the use of nitrogen fertilizer and manure. This increase is the main cause of increasing N2O load in the atmosphere.
It can be seen from this that the greenhouse gas with the greatest impact is CO2, accounting for 66% of the total. The main reason for the generation of CO2 in human society is the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and natural gas. So how to reduce the use of fossil fuels, this is an urgent problem. At the current social level, how can we reduce the use of fossil fuels without affecting social development? I think only by vigorously developing the use of clean energy.
Fangpusun in action
In 2018, Fangpusun renovated and expanded the factory, and installed PVB and solar power systems on the roof of the factory. Investing in solar power systems in China is not a good choice for the economic benefit. We expect it to take at least 10 years for the solar system to pay for itself because of the stable grid and relatively appropriate electricity prices in China. But this solar system can greatly reduce carbon emissions, which is the social responsibility of Fangpusun as a company.
As a solar equipment manufacturer, Fangpusun produces solar charge controllers and solar hybrid inverters that have been used all over the world, among which Flexmax MPPT solar charge controller is popular all over the world due to its reliable quality, powerful performance and reasonable price, and has won consistent praise from customers. Fangpusun will continue to invest in research and development, strive to reduce costs, and contribute to the early popularization of solar energy system.
