A "zero-carbon-emission factory" affiliated with XIZI Aviation Industry Co officially started operating in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, on Nov 19.

At the new factory's launch ceremony that day, Wang Shuifu, chairman of XIZI UHC Co, gave a keynote speech emphasizing the company's commitment to eliminating carbon emissions through technological innovation.

XIZI UHC Co, headquartered in Hangzhou, is the parent company of XIZI Aviation Industry Co, an important supplier of components for civil airplane makers such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC).

China has set a national goal of peaking carbon emissions before 2030 and achieving a carbon-neutral society before 2060. Wang believes this environmental constraint has forced Chinese enterprises to thoroughly transform their production models and embrace the new concept of high-quality development.

XIZI Aeronautics started demolishing old boiler facilities and building the factory's new workshops on Sept 5. It took the company merely 75 days to complete the entire process, including design, manufacturing, installation, and adjustment, to prepare for its operation.

The factory has adopted self-developed comprehensive solutions to green energy utilization, which involves a series of new energy battery and energy storage technologies. The factory has achieved its goal of annual consumption of 5 million degrees of electricity and 10,000 metric tons of steam produced without carbon dioxide emissions.
