BEIJING, March 28 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.


China is beefing up efforts to boost the research and development of the hydrogen energy industry to develop new quality productive forces, aiming to establish a growth model that prizes quality over quantity.

Hydrogen energy has emerged as a prominent topic during China's annual "two sessions" held earlier this month. It was also highlighted in the government's work report for the first time as a crucial emerging industry.

According to a report by Sinopec Group, China's major oil refiner, the country's hydrogen energy consumption is projected to reach nearly 86 million tonnes by 2060, with an industry scale of 4.6 trillion yuan (about 637 billion U.S. dollars).


Chinese scientists made accurate predictions regarding Antarctic sea ice for December 2023 to February 2024 using deep learning methods.

The research team utilized a Convolutional Long Short-Term Memory (ConvLSTM) neural network to construct a seasonal-scale Antarctic sea ice prediction model.

Their forecast indicated that Antarctic sea ice would remain close to historical lows in February 2024, but there was less indication of it reaching a new record low. The predicted sea ice area (SIA) and sea ice extent (SIE) for February 2024 were 1.441 million square kilometers and 2.105 million square kilometers, respectively, slightly higher than the historic lows observed in 2023.


China's green and digital innovation is injecting great momentum into its efforts to develop new quality productive forces and promote high-quality development.

The remarks were made by government officials, entrepreneurs and scholars at a sideline forum during the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2024, underway in Boao in south China's Hainan Province from March 26 to 29. Enditem
