China processes more than half of the world’s fibre, and in the past its textile industry was counted among the labour-intensive industries. However, with advances in technology, new materials and promotion of application of information technology, Chinese textile industry has quietly entered a new era, China Textile Industry Association vice president Gao Yong said at the Seventh China Textile Economic Forum held in Henan province.
 
The theme of the forum was “Green Textile, collaborative development”, and was hosted by the China Textile Industry Association, in collaboration with China Textile Economy Research Center, Henan Institute of Engineering, and Zhengzhou Hongda Technology Consulting Co.
 
Gao Yong said the Chinese textile industry is going through a phase of transformation and upgrading of industrial structure, and energy saving is essential for continuation of the future development of the industry.
 
Gao Yong said energy saving and textile waste recycling will become focus of the Chinese textile industry in future. In addition, new models of sales will have a significant impact on the textile consumer market.
 
This year, online sales will reach 460 billion yuan, accounting for about one-fifth of the total national textile retail sales, Yong said.
 
At the meeting, President of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics Technology presented a report on ‘industrial energy research’.
 
‘An analysis of carbon management standardization progress was presented by the Central Information Branch of the China National Institute of Standardization, while General Manager Butler (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Xia Xiaogang introduced energy-efficient steel system in the textile industry.
 
On the sidelines of the forum, the Environmental and Resources Protection Committee of the China Textile Industry Association signed a low-carbon technology knitting project agreement with the Pacific Textile Printing and Dyeing Co. Ltd.
