Change smart home and recycle old appliances
Accoring to the data of the National Bureau of statistics, the popularity rate of refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, range hoods and water heaters in urban households in China has now exceeded 70%. Among them, refrigerators and washing machines are nearly saturated, and air conditioners are developing towards the direction of one household with multiple machines. These products have been converted to home appliance color steel plate. With the growth of per capita disposable income and the improvement of material life, the consumption market of household electrical appliances has shown the characteristics of high penetration rate and large demand for renewal, and the consumption of household electrical appliances has also begun to upgrade from function consumption to quality consumption and service consumption.
In the implementation plan, consumers are encouraged to update and eliminate household appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners and televisions with high energy consumption and poor safety. Where conditions permit, consumers are encouraged to purchase energy-saving and intelligent household appliances with appropriate support. Manufacturers are encouraged to further make profits to consumers.
What about the old household appliances? The implementation plan encourages the construction of recycling and dismantling systems for color TV sets, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners and other products, and promotes the recycling of waste household appliances. Xu Dongsheng, vice president of China household electrical appliances association, explained that after the standard dismantling of waste electrical appliances, the steel, non-ferrous metals, plastics and other resources contained in them can be recycled, which is not only conducive to reducing environmental pollution, but also to promoting the development of circular economy. Some parts of home appliances also contain rare earth magnetic products, which have higher recycling value. The implementation plan puts forward that efforts should be made to improve the recycling system of waste products, which is conducive to promoting the recycling of resources from waste electrical appliances to color steel plates of electrical appliances, thus making the resource and environmental benefits of electrical appliances more significant in the whole life cycle.
The implementation plan also encourages in-depth implementation of cross industry application pilot of smart home. According to Xu Dongsheng, this will promote the coordinated development of home appliances, security, lighting and other industries related to smart home, thus bringing more and higher quality smart home products to consumers, and also driving the transformation and upgrading of the whole industry.
