Pops detection brings new challenges to the analytical instrument market

pops emission reduction has become an international topic. In order to achieve the emission reduction target, countries have carried out research one after another

"whether it is basic research or alternative pilot, the development of this industry has reached a very good time." Said Yu Gang, Dean of the Department of environment and engineering at Tsinghua University

taking the instrument manufacturers as an example, dioxin, one of POPs, is recognized as the most toxic and difficult to eliminate. At present, there are only three companies in the world that can make dioxin detection instruments, including water world, Thermo Fisher and Japan Electronics. In other words, if you want to analyze and detect dioxin, you can only choose instruments from these three companies

The detection of

pops has brought new challenges to the analytical instrument, which requires the instrument to have higher sensitivity and be able to analyze trace pops, such as dioxins; It also requires the instrument to have a more perfect spectrum library to provide conditions for rapid screening of a large number of POPs, and to have a stronger ability to detect unknown compounds

"however, the price of a set of dioxin analysis and detection instruments is very high, costing millions of yuan." Shu Fang, director of market development of water world, believes that from the situation of dioxin analysis and detection instruments owned by countries all over the world, China's instrument market prospects are very good, "because China's current task of POPs emission reduction is still very arduous, and the number of instruments needed must be increased"

in fact, many instrument manufacturers believe that China is a big market with great potential

Chen Yudong, a product expert of Thermo Fisher, believes that some environmental problems will inevitably be encountered in the process of the development of the chemical industry. While developing the economy, the Chinese government also pays attention to environmental monitoring and governance. The government has strengthened environmental investment, constantly improved testing methods and management, and there is a wear and fatigue system. The chemical analysis instrument industry, which is inseparable from the environment, has developed rapidly. Especially since 2000, China's environmental instrument market has maintained a double-digit growth

after joining the Stockholm Convention, China is actively implementing the Convention. Due to the characteristics of long-distance migration of POPs, the sampling and pretreatment of POPs in environmental media are very complex

"for example, the analysis of dioxins and polybrominated diphenyl ethers belongs to ultra trace analysis, which requires extremely high selectivity and sensitivity of analytical instruments. The pollution status of these pollutants has become one of the hot spots of environmental scientists." Chen Yudong said

it is not only a dioxin analysis instrument, but also a tool involving various pops monitoring and analysis, which has become a "big cake" in the eyes of instrument manufacturers

therefore, China's environmental policy is that instrument manufacturers are particularly concerned about the existence of these problems. As a result, China's plastic machinery industry cannot meet the level of foreign plastic machinery as soon as possible. Every move of the policy is directly or indirectly related to product sales. Shufang said, "what we care about most is the progress of the contract and the future plan. Knowing these, we can prepare for the market in advance."

Hong Jing, environmental industry manager of Agilent technology's marketing department, said: "the introduction of these policies will promote the environmental monitoring system to increase investment and improve its own capacity. For instrument manufacturers, it will naturally bring opportunities, and affected by the development of the global transportation industry, this market demand will continue to increase."

in fact, it is not just the instrument industry that benefits from it. Sample analysis, alternative technologies and products are all sunrise industries in China that are still in the embryonic stage

at present, there are about 20 laboratories with dioxin analysis and monitoring capacity in China, but many cities and regions do not have such laboratories

"because of the requirements of performance, there are many samples that need to be studied and analyzed. If relevant industries can be established in the sample analysis industry, on the one hand, scientific research problems can be solved, on the other hand, valuable instruments are also worth it." Yu Gang said

in addition, various industries such as steel, metal recycling and papermaking need some emission reduction measures. The market of the industry is huge. "At present, France has such an industry, such as Kai, so it is widely used in industrial and mining enterprises, colleges and universities and scientific research institutions for dioxin control technology in waste incineration and pesticide disposal technology. Relying on these technologies, it can fully gain a foothold in the market." Yu Gang said

in fact, on the issue of POPs, China's overall research direction is much clearer than in previous years, and the research perspective is also diversified. Yu Gang believes that the participation of many young scholars also shows the deep development of this industry in the future

however, it still needs a complex process from research to practical application. "How to combine industry, University and research is certainly related to the concept of the government. Now many research institutions and universities are mainly basic research and patent applications, rather than well connected with enterprises." Yu Gang believes that enterprises actually need technical support. If the state can provide favorable policies, the development of the industry will in turn support the country's performance cause
