China uses energy/water conservation product certification to save resources

The energy/water conservation product certification scheme in China, which uses a “conservation” mark to indicate that the product conforms to relevant energy/water conservation requirements, is aimed at promoting the use of energy/water conservation products.

The scope of certification covers the energy conservation of electrical appliances, office equipment, lighting equipment, electromechanical equipment, electric transmission and transformation equipment, and building materials; water conservation certification of industrial water treatment equipment, town water consumption, agricultural irrigation and drainage, and non-traditional water resource utilization; and certification of renewable energy products.

A total of 52,011 energy conservation product certificates have been issued for 134 kinds of products produced by 2,830 enterprises. This scheme has saved the use of over 183 million tons of standard coal.

A total of 9,932 water conservation product certificates have been issued for 48 different types of products produced by 1,379 enterprises.
