Chinese Society for Metals Board Chair, CAE Academician, HBIS CCP & Group Chairman Yu Yong, CISRI chairman Zhang Shaoming, CAE Academician Wang Guodong attended the meeting and unveiled the plaque for the Innovation Center.CAE Strategic Consultation Center Deputy Director Jiao Dong, HBIS Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Wang Xindong, CISRI CCP Member of Standing Committee, Vice President Li Bo, Northeast University Vice Chancellor Tang Lixin Signed the Agreement on behalf of the four partners.
The meeting was hosted by CISRI CCP Member of Standing Committee Zhang Jianwu. CAE Academician Wang Haizhou, CAE Strategic Consultation Center Director Xu Jin attended the meeting.
Yu Yong presented his paper titled <<Metallurgical Industry Could Lead the Sustainable Development of Hydrogen Energy Society>>. He said HBIS had made spectacular achievements in international green, intelligent and diversified development and drew the attention and praise of the country’s top leaders. HBIS, One of The Most Influential Largest Scale Steel Manufacturers in Jing-Jin-Ji region, is working hard on hydrogen energy industry, which is about to contribute to the improvement of environment and energy structure. As a SOE, HBIS would take this historic opportunity and design its strategy in hydrogen energy to lead the efforts of zero pollution and zero emission in Jing-Jin-Ji region. HBIS will be an icon of green manufacturing in the world’s metallurgical industry and dedicated to the new energy industry and accomplishment of green mountains, waters and blue sky.
In his speech, Yu Yong said that hydrogen energy industry was an important strategic choice of HBIS. Hydrogen energy is the most promising clean energy in 21st century and most important strategic choice of human beings in optimization of energy consumption structure. HBIS will follow the national strategy and develop the new strategic industry, including hydrogen production, stock and refueling. The group will own more advantages and become the new pioneer of hydrogen energy industry.
Yu Yong said the lunch of the Innovation Center is a future envisioned strategic choice of the partners. They are taking their social responsibilities and pursuing a green development and sharing similarity in business concepts, strategic considerations. The center will will be a new platform for the cooperation between enterprises, academics, researches and applications and improve applications of technological innovations and industrial applications. In the coming years, the parties will work together to make it one of the most competitive and influential research and application facilities in hydrogen energy.
Zhang Shaoming said hydrogen energy and fuel cell was an important approach in the new round of technological and industrial revolution that would introduce new energy revolution, improve environmental management, restructure green, low carbon industrial system and general energy grid and the energy security of the state. The Innovation Center is a firm action of the parties implementing the initiative promoted by the CCP Central Committee and State Council. As always, CISRI will joint force with it partners to explore hydrogen energy based green metallurgical industry and study the extension of the business chain of steel industry.
Over the year, HBIS has been pursuing new strategic industrial approaches and ready to enter the hydrogen energy industry. The Innovation Center will commence the showpiece project construction, an actual start in the industry.
