More than three decades of reform and opening-up have brought about tremendous changes in the Chinese land, from being poor and white to the world's second largest economy, the world's largest developing country, and advancing towards the goal of an industrial power. But there are also many problems, environmental pollution is a matter of vital interest to everyone. The state attaches great importance to the protection of the ecological environment. Since the 12th Five-Year Plan, we have resolutely declared war on pollution, made every effort to promote the prevention and control of air, water and soil pollution, continuously increased the protection of the ecological environment, improved the quality of the ecological environment, and completed the main objectives and tasks set out in the 12th Five-Year Plan. During the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the problems of unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable economic and social development are still outstanding, with multi-stage, multi-field and multi-type ecological environment problems interwoven, the gap between ecological environment and the needs and expectations of the people is large, improving environmental quality, strengthening the comprehensive management of ecological environment, and speeding up the improvement of the ecological environment. The state has raised the construction of ecological civilization to the height of national strategy, releasing policy dividends, rule of law dividends and technical dividends for environmental protection. The upgrading of economic transformation and the structural reform on the supply side have accelerated the resolution of heavy pollution excess capacity, increased the supply of ecological products, and the pressure of new emissions of pollutants has slowed down.
The public awareness of ecological environment protection is increasing day by day, and the combined force of the whole society to protect the ecological environment is gradually formed. For the coatings industry, the 2015 National Industrial Structure Adjustment Guidance Directory will be environmentally friendly (low VOC) paint as an incentive to develop the industry, which is a major advantage for powder coatings, coupled with the introduction of a number of environmental protection policies, further promote the paint industry green.
VoC emissions of paint has been increased by the state to increase the way restrictions, non-environmental protection of the paint enterprises will face more severe pressure, and downstream use enterprises will be more and more favoring green powder coating, gradually reduce the dependence on paint coating.
