PANMIN Completes New PV Project to Promote “Carbon Neutrality”

At present, the world is progressing towards its goals of Peak Carbon and Carbon Neutrality. Using technological advances and innovation to improve the comprehensive green utilization of materials is an important issue for the high-quality development of the building materials industry. In response to the global development of green buildings and the goals of Peak Carbon, PANMIN took the initiative to seize opportunities and made contributions to the goals of Peak Carbon and Carbon Neutrality by constructing a clean energy photovoltaic power generation project. The project will help to reduce carbon emissions and create a more sustainable future. PANMIN's commitment to environmental protection is an example of how stone businesses can play a role in meeting China's climate goals.

PANMIN's PV Project Comes Online and Starts Generating Power

On June 24th, 2022, the first phase of the distributed photovoltaic power generation project invested and constructed by Fujian PANMIN Co., Ltd. was successfully grid-connected and power generation. The project is located in Jiulong Industrial Park, Hua'an Economic Development Zone, Zhangzhou City, Fujian Province, China. The total installed capacity is 2295.54KW. After commissioning, it is estimated that the annual power generation will reach 2.68 million kWh. According to the saving and emission reduction benefits of electricity saving, it is estimated that carbon emissions will be reduced by 2672 tons per year. Each kilowatt hour saved corresponds to 0.4 kilograms of standard coal or 0.379 liters of diesel saved. It can also save 2.63 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions for every liter of diesel saved. It is equivalent to planting a tree for every 25 watts saved. This move will improve the economic efficiency of the project, promote enterprise transformation and upgrading, build a low-carbon energy system, and play a due role for the stone industry in carbon peak, carbon neutrality and environmental protection.

What is photovoltaic energy?

Solar photovoltaics, also known as solar PV or solar panels, is the conversion of sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity using semiconductor materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect. A solar PV system consists of solar panels, solar inverters, and other electrical components. Solar panels are the core of a solar PV system and are made of semiconductor materials such as monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon, and cadmium telluride. With the world's increasing push for renewable energy in recent years, the development of the solar PV industry has been rapid. Click here for more details.

Solar PV is not only an energy-saving transformation of equipment for the stone industry, but also an improvement in production efficiency. It contributes wisdom and strength to lead the stone industry to achieve the goal of "carbon peak, carbon neutrality".

Green and Low-Carbon Opportunities Boost the Upgrading of Green Building Materials Industry

PANMIN is mainly engaged in the research and development, production, sales and service of artificial quartz stone decorative materials. The products are widely used in the decoration of residential and commercial places such as family houses and shopping malls. It has industry-leading technical strength. As a partial substitute for natural stone, the artificial stone developed and produced increases the utilization rate of natural stone and reduces the pressure on the natural environment. The advantages of comprehensively utilizing resources make artificial stone an irreplaceable role in environmental protection and energy conservation, which is a true green building material and environmental protection new material. Because the energy consumed in the production process is mainly photovoltaic power generation, artificial stone has ecological environmental protection attributes from the moment of birth.

PANMIN is well aware that the stone industry is a resource-based industry that has always been plagued by environmental pollution and the lack of comprehensive utilization of resources. For the manufacturing industry, carbon neutrality is a big proposition, including the power curtailment order issued by our country last year, which is actually correcting the early extensive development. Only by doing industries that conform to the direction of "carbon neutrality" can it be possible to revive new vitality, make efforts to transform, stimulate greater market potential, and develop in a long-term and healthy way in the future.

5 Design Tips For Lighting Quartz Countertops In Commercial Spaces

Lighting has a considerable impact on commercial spaces, especially when displaying quartz countertops. Indeed, the color temperature significantly influences the perception of the stone and the customers. For quartz countertops, a color temperature between 3000K and 3500K is usually preferred because it provides a warm and inviting glow. Warm tones emphasize the rich colors and veining of the stone without altering its natural color. The hue and its intensity should remain unchanged. When designing the lighting for quartz countertops in commercial settings, lumens, which are the measurement of total visible light, are essential to consider. In task areas on kitchen counters or in display settings, the fixture should provide between 300 and 500 lumens per square foot. LED lights are often used because they are up to 75% more efficient than incandescent lighting and last 25 times longer.

5 Reasons Quartz Countertops Are Eco-Friendly

As a whole, quartz countertops are associated with sustainability mostly due to the low-impact mining. Quartz differs from other minerals and materials largely because there is less ecological disruption. The abundance of quartz and shallow depths at which it is found make it a more sustainable material to mine. This implies that less energy and fewer mechanisms are used in mining, which, as a result, does not have a negative ecological footprint.

8 Ideas For Integrating Quartz Into Modern Home Designs

Quartz is a popular choice in cases of monochromatic designs, not only for its aesthetic elevation but also for making the maintenance simpler. In a New York apartment, the designers used white quartz for both the countertop and the cabinetry, with the same material used for the flooring. The white monochrome is not only slick and appealing but highly durable, and facilitates the feeling of space. Specifically, the desire to continue the countertop up the wall to create an equally white backsplash would feel much less impressive if another material was used.
