The author has learned from China chemical fiber industry association that at present, the field of fiber in China is to speed up the exploration on the cyclic development, clean production, green certification, such as the core of green manufacturing system, is committed to establish green low carbon development from textile sources "barometer", reduce their carbon footprint output, promoting textile industrial chain green transformation.

Green fiber refers to the raw materials from biomass or recycled raw materials, the production process is low carbon environmental protection, the finished products after abandonment of no pollution to the environment or renewable recycling chemical fiber. In the era of the global pursuit of green development, green fiber is not only seen by many brands as part of their efforts to use 100% sustainable textile raw materials, but also as a green industry that can improve the environmental performance of the industrial chain and supply chain and reduce the environmental impact. More and more industries favor green fiber quickly stand on the "tuyere".

According to statistics, compared with native polyester fiber, every 1 ton of recycled polyester produced can replace 6-8 tons of native fiber. It can be seen that the development of green fiber is the only way to the sustainable development of Chinese chemical fiber industry.

The state also actively introduced relevant industrial policies to help the development of green fiber industry. On April 11 this year, the National Development and Reform Commission and other three departments issued the "Implementation Opinions on Accelerating the recycling of waste Textiles", pointing out the direction for the textile industry resources recycling system construction, and put forward a series of specific targets.

On April 21, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the National Development and Reform Commission jointly issued the "Guidelines on High-quality Development of Chemical Fiber Industry" (hereinafter referred to as the "Guidelines"), which set out the tasks of green and low-carbon transformation: The green manufacturing system has been continuously improved, with the proportion of green fibers rising to over 25%, the output of bio-based chemical fibers and biodegradable fiber materials growing at an average annual rate of over 20%, the level and scale of comprehensive utilization of waste resources further developed, and the intensity of the industry significantly decreased.

A series of specific digital targets for the development of our green fiber industry is clear power point, green fiber industry development is facing an opportunity period.

However, there are always opportunities as well as challenges, and the constraints of industry development should not be ignored. The person in charge of the enterprise told reporters that at present, a big category of green fiber recycled polyester fiber is developing rapidly, and the demand of downstream brand owners is increasing by more than 20% annually, but the overall capacity of recycled polyester fiber is still in the climbing stage. In the case of short supply, the original polyester fiber counterfeit recycled polyester fiber in the market, as well as recycled polyester fiber traceability chain is not complete, shoestring, unclear proportion, regulatory standards, testing methods are not unified and other problems make many fiber enterprises "headache".

Industry insiders told reporters that due to the low threshold of access to renewable polyester fiber, the number of enterprises, large industry scale, fierce market competition, some enterprises by profit, to the native fiber products with the label of renewable polyester fiber, it will be sold as recycled polyester fiber in the market.

The person revealed that after the label of recycled polyester fiber is affixed to the raw fiber, the market price can rise by 1000-2000 yuan per ton, and some can even be as high as 6000-7000 yuan per ton. For example, he said, the original fiber and polyester fiber as inorganic organic vegetables, vegetables, and there is no difference in appearance, but the production process, process flow, costs, are a big difference in the value of environmental protection, in the long run, will inevitably exist "bad money after bad money" great hidden danger of serious damage to the healthy and orderly development of green industry in China.

An official with the China Chemical Fiber Industry Association said that although China has a complete recycled polyester fiber industry ecological chain, it lacks a renewable traceability system and a credible certification system. To give full play to the social responsibility of enterprises in renewable industries, promote industrial chain upstream and downstream enterprise certification and collaborative efficiency, solid advance the renewable industry status and influence in the field of ecology, set up green fibre products trusted platform, build advanced technology and efficient coordination of trusted platform is of great significance, is imminent.

In January this year, under the guidance of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the trust system of China's recycled textile industry -- Green Fiber Products Trust Platform (STCP) was officially published online. The platform is jointly operated by the China Chemical Fiber Industry Association and the National Advanced Functional Fiber Innovation Center.

Cao Xiuyu, head of the platform operation of the National Advanced Functional Fiber Innovation Center, introduced that the trusted platform of green fiber products provides lightweight applications for bottle chip factories, slicing factories, yarn factories and other upstream and downstream of the whole industrial chain through the national secondary node analysis technology, blockchain technology, supply chain traceability system and other information means. Digital transformation and upgrading of the whole industrial chain from fiber to terminal products and online trading can be realized, and production data, storage data, logistics data and trading data can be credibly connected to the chain, so as to realize transparent data connection of procurement, raw material input and export, production consumption, invoice and other information.

According to the introduction, from 2022 to 2023, the platform will carry out external expansion and connotation extension, continue to improve the platform function, expand the platform service content, gradually deepen through the digital trusted transformation, improve the digital trusted solution through the top-level design, and realize the trusted access of the industrial chain. Predicts 2024, the platform will assign to digital transformation and upgrading of the whole industry chain, extend the platform value, create benefit, and participate in the custom rules of the industry, to create China's own transparent, traceability, reliable platform for the certification, maintaining the order of green fiber, green textiles market, will eventually platform into an international first-class certification.
