Shaanxi multi-party promotes the upgrading of plant extracting industry and achieves benign development
Since the 21st century, worldwide, the improvement of people's living standards and the enhancement of the awareness of green nature have driven the strong demand for plant extract products, thus, the plant extract industry has entered a golden age.
After more than 30 years of development in Shaanxi plant extraction industry, as of 2016, the planting area of plant extraction raw material crops in the province reached 4 million mu, and there were more than 600 enterprises engaged in plant extraction products production, accounting for 1/3 of the whole country. The output value of the whole industry reached hundreds of billions of yuan. Shaanxi has developed into the largest province in China's plant extraction industry.
As one of the cradles of plant extraction industry in China, Shaanxi has obvious advantages, such as numerous enterprises with large industrial scale, obvious geographical advantages, rich raw material resources, sufficient scientific and technological personnel, mature and perfect process technology, strong research and development force, and has a good foundation for development.
As a major plant extract production and export province in China, Shaanxi plant extract industry has maintained a growth rate of more than 20% for more than ten consecutive years. In 2016, the import and export volume of plant extract products in Shaanxi exceeded 1 billion yuan, becoming the fourth largest single product export industry in Shaanxi.
At the same time, because the extraction object of the plant extraction industry is plant resources, the production of plant extracts needs to consume a huge amount of plant raw materials, which has a huge driving effect on the upstream of the industry breeding and planting industry, and is an important guarantee for farmers in poor areas to get rid of poverty and increase income to become rich.
Phytochemistry industry is to promote shaanxi extroverted degree and realize precise powerful fulcrum for poverty alleviation, in order to standardize the industry development, promote the enterprise cluster, accelerate industrial upgrading, on April 14, shaanxi provincial department of commerce jointly the provincial development and reform commission, department of science, the ministry office, customs, inspection and quarantine bureau, bureau of quality and technical supervision and so on more than a dozen central unit, financial institutions and in central shaanxi, held in shaanxi yangling plant extracts "shaanxi province exports and industrial development forum".
At the symposium, Tang Yugang, deputy director of Shaanxi Provincial Department of Commerce, made a keynote speech, introducing the resource advantages of developing plant extraction industry in Shaanxi: Qinba Mountain area contains more than 6000 kinds of biological resources, known as the "biological gene pool". "In the pilot statistics of 36 counties in the fourth national traditional Chinese medicine resource survey, our province has a total of 2,399 kinds of medicinal plants, including 283 kinds of key varieties, and the output of a variety of Chinese medicinal materials ranks in the forefront in China." Tang Yugang said.
According to years of experience in the development of Shaanxi plant extraction industry, Tang Yugang proposed to "guide the poor population in the planting process to carry out precise planting according to the raw material demand for precise export of plant extracts, so as to form an industrial poverty alleviation model in Shaanxi, which ensures farmers' income increase through precise planting and drives targeted poverty alleviation".
To solve the problem of cleaner production in plant extraction enterprises, Tang suggested that production intensification and resource recycling should be gradually solved. First of all, according to the national environmental protection requirements, the construction of smart parks to promote enterprise agglomeration. The park implements centralized energy supply and sewage treatment. The waste residue produced by extraction can be made into biological pesticide, feed and fertilizer, realizing the benign development of "circular economy" of plant extraction industry.
In recent years, the Department of Commerce of Shaanxi Province actively practices the five development concepts, responds to the national "poverty alleviation", "circular economy development", and cultivates new advantages in foreign trade competition. For the plant extraction industry with comparative advantages, the Department of Commerce of Shaanxi Province actively plays the role of Shaanxi Plant Extraction Association, foreign trade and economic service platform, overseas representative offices and leading plant extraction enterprises in Shaanxi Province, and supports enterprises to participate in key international exhibitions in key countries and regions.
