The 16th Yulin International Coal and High-end Energy Chemicals Industry Expo 
opened on October 13 in Yulin, a major energy supply base in northwest China's 
Shaanxi Province. The Expo was jointly organized by the CPC Yulin Municipal 
Committee, the People's Government of Yulin City, and the China Council for the 
Promotion of International Trade Shaanxi Sub-council. It attracted more than 
520 exhibitors representing well-known industry players from China and abroad.

With a total area of 53,000 square meters, the exhibits covered six major 
categories, including smart digitalization, smart manufacturing, low carbon 
development, green mining, and new energy. The three-day event also included 13 
forums and sessions on topics including the development of the high-end energy 
and chemicals industry, the development of energy and chemical equipment 
manufacturing, and smart innovation of coal mines. These categories clearly 
demonstrated a focus on China's carbon peak and carbon neutrality commitments. 

Yulin City, located in the northernmost part of Shaanxi Province, is a major 
energy supply base in China. It is an energy resource-rich area along the Belt 
and Road, with abundant coal, oil, gas and salt deposits in the region, as well 
as abundant solar, wind and biomass resources.With more than 20 years of 
development, Yulin has constructed a well-established energy industry base and 
put together a system centered on the electric power and chemicals industries 
bolstered by the exploitation of coal, oil, gas and salts. In addition, it has 
explored areas in green mining, comprehensive conversion, and clean energy 
production.

As the Chinese government released its peak carbon and carbon neutrality plans, 
local governments at all levels have taken action to develop their specific 
plans for carbon emissions. With a proactive response to the goal of carbon 
peak and carbon neutrality, the major energy source city of Yulin has arrived 
at four strategies: curbing energy-intensive and high-emissions projects; 
cutting carbon emissions from the source; promoting carbon capture at the end 
stage; and launching a dual control system over total energy consumption and 
energy intensity.

In recent years, Yulin has continued its advance down the path of technological 
innovation. The 14th Five-Year Plan has opened a window of opportunity for 
Yulin's transformation and acceleration as a resource-based city. It is a 
critical period for Yulin for the development of emerging industry chains and 
the assembly of industry clusters. "The next step is for Yulin to transform its 
economic development from resource-based and investment-driven to technological 
innovation-driven. The city'S focus will be on the deployment and development 
of emerging industries such as intelligent unmanned systems, renewable energy, 
and new materials," said Yulin City Mayor, Zhang Shengli.
