Abstract ( 24 )
The recycling of renewable resources is a feasible, cost-controllable, replicable and popularizable carbon emission reduction scheme, which is a strong support for achieving sustainable development and carbon neutrality. In view of the lack of quantitative assessment of carbon emission reduction potential of renewable resources recycling, this study evaluates the recycling potential of bulk material resources, including cement, sand, gravel, brick, lime, glass, rubber, wood, plastics, asphalt, steel, aluminum and copper. In particular, the carbon emission reduction path and carbon neutralization potential of the steel and cement industries with "high energy consumption, high emission and high output" were sorted out and quantitatively assessed. The calculation results show that the demand for bulk material resources will continue to decrease after reaching the peak around 2025, and the amount of scrapped material resources will increase after 2030. The amount of scrapped material resources will reach about 5.46 billion tons per year in 2060, and the proportion of construction waste will be as high as 90% and concentrated in the southeastern coastal provinces. From 2019 to 2060, the reduction of demand for bulk material resources has led to the continuous reduction of carbon emissions. If the circular economy strategies are coordinated, the CO2 emissions in 2060 will be reduced to 430 million tons per year, 77% lower than the emission level in 2018. Among them, the recycling of scrap metals, especially scrap iron and steel, has the greatest potential for CO2 emission reduction. If the recycling rate of scrap iron and steel is increased to more than 90% in 2060, the carbon emissions of the iron and steel industry in 2018 will be reduced by 90%, and the carbon emissions will be reduced by 440 million tons. In contrast, due to the limitation of recycling technology and product recycling value, cement production can only achieve CO2 emission reduction by improving resource efficiency and prolonging product service life. Finally, this study describes the resource recycling policies, models and technologies that need to be deployed during the "14th Five-Year Plan" period as the key period and window period to promote the recycling of renewable resources. Our study provides important support for the realization of carbon neutrality goals.

Abstract ( 24 )
Under the goal of "emission peak and carbon neutrality", the hydrogen energy industry with standardization and orderly development is an important part of China's energy structure in the new era and new stage, and how to build a standardization system to ensure the high-quality development of China's hydrogen energy industry is a subject worthy of deep consideration. This paper firstly discusses the significance of hydrogen energy standardization in guiding industrial development, reducing trade barriers and enhancing industrial competitiveness, etc. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) are the most important international standardization organizations for hydrogen energy, the European Union is making every effort to build a regional standard system for hydrogen energy, the United States has the most complete industrial standard system for hydrogen energy, and the construction of Japan's standard system for hydrogen energy safety is worthy of our reference. Meanwhile, there are also problems such as insufficient market foresight and feasibility, lack of standards in subdivided fields, imperfect coordination mechanism of standardization groups, and limited participation in formulating international standards. By comparing the standardization system of hydrogen energy industry in China and abroad, the study provides inspiration and reference for the development of standardization of hydrogen energy industry in China.

Abstract ( 36 )
In order to reveal the nonlinear dynamic characteristics of the time series of special equipment safety accidents, taking the time series of different types of special equipment safety accidents in China from 2005 to 2020 as the research object, the visualization method was used to convert the time series of special equipment safety accidents into a topology network diagram to generate a topology network structural model; using topological network theory to analyze topological network characteristic parameters such as node degree, network density, weighted clustering coefficient, power law index, betweenness centrality, etc., the time series law of special equipment accidents was mined. The results show that: The topological networks of various special equipment safety accident time series have small-world characteristics and scale-free characteristics; the clustering coefficients of the topological networks are all large, and the community structure is obvious; the node with greater betweenness centrality corresponds to the corresponding year, the greater the probability of an accident. The topology network analysis method used in this paper can more concisely and intuitively display the topology network structure of the time series of special equipment safety accidents, and more comprehensively characterize the nonlinear dynamic characteristics of the time series of special equipment safety accidents, which can provide a theoretical basis for the prediction of special equipment safety accidents.
