42nd China Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Industry Conference
During the opening ceremony, CACA awarded honorary certificates to the 12th batch of engineering and technical personnel who have worked in the AAC industry for more than 20 years, and made the announcement of the 9th Council Technical Expert Committee and Standardization Working Committee. President Stephen Shen delivered a welcome speech, pointing out that the current market demand in China's real estate industry is declining and that the AAC business cycle enters the trough stage. How to overcome adversity to thrive in a crisis becomes an important issue that needs to be considered seriously by the entire AAC industry. He proposed three ideas. Firstly, that the entire industry shall pay attention to product quality to prevent the phenomenon of "bad money drives out good", encouraging AAC producers to strengthen product quality control with the support of local industry regulatory departments and associations. CACA also plans to set up an evaluation system to release a whitelist of good AAC products. Secondly, he proposed to care about ''China double carbon target'' and learn from advanced foreign experience. CACA will organize experts to conduct targeted research on AAC products, focusing on the application scenarios of ultra-low energy consumption buildings and prefabricated buildings, and developing more new products, production technologies, and application technologies. Thirdly, he also advocates that the entire industry shall actively engage in exchanges with the global market and seek development opportunities worldwide.
