Attendees discussed green development technologies and how to apply nanofiber in the environmental industry.

"Climate change has been a major concern for many countries around the world since the beginning of 21st century," said an expert in his keynote speech during the ceremony.

Air pollution, water pollution or scarce natural resources negatively impact people's livelihoods. Thus, the question of how to eliminate or ease the conflict between the economy and the environment is a major task for governments worldwide.

"Green development," a new term coined by parties concerned about environmental pollution, encourages the use of natural resources to more effectively deal with pollutants such as carbon dioxide, according to Wang Yuqing, president of China Society for Environmental Sciences.

However, the question of how to achieve green development remains. "Technological innovation has made breakthroughs in the environmental protection industry in recent years, and it is technological innovation that makes green development possible," said Wang.
