The General Office of the National Development and Reform Commission issued the "Notice on Deepening the Remanufacturing Pilot Work" on the 14th. The notice clarified that it will expand the types of remanufactured products and the scope of the trial, and will increase policy support to speed up the preparation of the Remanufactured Product Catalog. Industry insiders said that the technology and conditions for the development of the remanufacturing industry have matured and will enter the fast lane due to policy support.
Expansion of pilot scope and product categories
Remanufacturing refers to the use of high technology to professionally repair or upgrade electromechanical products to restore them to a mass manufacturing process that is as good as or better than new products.
On the basis of the original scope of remanufacturing, the National Development and Reform Commission decided to expand the scope of remanufacturing trials to include the types and scope of remanufactured products, and continue to organize remanufacturing trials.
The notice clarified that it is necessary to appropriately expand the scope of remanufacturing products for auto parts, continue to remanufacture products such as engines and transmissions, increase drive shafts, oil pumps, water pumps, booster pumps and other components for remanufacturing; develop tractors, combine harvesters and other agricultural machinery Remanufacturing pilot.
In addition, the notice also encourages remanufacturing technology companies to provide overall solutions and related services for metallurgical, mining, chemical and other industries, to carry out professional remanufacturing service pilots; to explore and improve remanufactured old parts recycling and remanufactured product sales channels, and carry out related Pilot network construction; strengthen the production and industrial application of specialized domestic equipment related to remanufacturing.
It is reported that the pilot work will select some representative enterprises with remanufacturing foundations across the country, and continue to explore policies, management systems and supervision systems for the development of the remanufacturing industry, in order to establish relevant technical standards, market access conditions, and circulation supervision for remanufacturing. System etc. provide experience.
"Remanufactured Product Catalog" is under preparation
The notice pointed out that the investment in the central budget will be used to provide necessary financial support to the pilot units’ key projects, technology research and development, old parts reverse recovery system and resource recycling projects; actively implement investment and financing policies and measures to support the development of circular economy, Remanufacturing enterprises of national pilot units shall provide diversified credit support including credit loans; priority shall be given to including mature remanufacturing technologies, processes, equipment and products in the relevant catalogs encouraged by the state.
In addition, the Development and Reform Commission will continue to improve preferential policies. At present, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Finance have formed a "Remanufactured Product Catalog" compilation team with relevant departments. Based on the pilot situation, remanufactured products that meet new product standards and large-scale production will be included in the catalog and enjoy corresponding preferential policies. Encourage government agencies and institutions to give priority to using remanufactured products.
It is understood that products included in the "Remanufactured Product Catalog" will receive relevant preferential tax policies.
According to the research of Xu Binshi, an academician of the Academy of Engineering, compared with new products, remanufactured products will save 50% of costs, 60% of energy, and 70% of materials, and the adverse impact on the environment will be significantly reduced compared with manufacturing new products.
With the emphasis on energy conservation and emission reduction, the remanufacturing industry is expected to enter the fast lane. Xu Binshi pointed out that since the reform and opening up, my country's only imported equipment has reached a trillion yuan, and these equipment will soon enter the period of obsolescence. If they can be repaired through remanufacturing projects, this will be a huge market.
A brokerage analyst said that it is difficult to accurately estimate the market size of the remanufacturing industry. But it is certain that remanufacturing conforms to the theme of today's energy conservation and environmental protection, and has high economic value and room for development. The annual output value of the remanufacturing industry in the United States in 2002 was 0.4% of GDP. Calculated according to my country's current GDP level, even if calculated at the 0.4% level, the market space still has 100 billion yuan.
