On the evening of October 30, 2020, a commemorative event for the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations hosted by the United Nations system in China was held in Beijing. GGTC was invited to participate as an important partner of the United Nations Development Program.
Cynthia Wang , Executive Director of the Global Green Technology Center (GGTC) , and Professor Wang Guilong, head of the New Materials Laboratory, attended the event.
At the venue, GGTC brought the results of the TBL (The Blue Lining) project.
GGTC specially designed the 75th anniversary souvenir for this commemorative event—the United Nations 75th anniversary logo printed with 3D printing technology. At the event, the GGTC team demonstrated how to process recycled plastic materials into crafts and souvenirs through 3D printing technology, which left a deep impression on the guests.
At the same time, Professor Wang Guilong introduced the overall design and sustainability significance of the TBL project to the guests in detail, and had a lively discussion and exchanges with the guests, and was warmly welcomed and recognized by the guests.
Through the organization and execution of this event, the GGTC team members deeply felt the importance of the TBL project in reducing marine pollution and promoting the realization of sustainable development goals. GGTC will further refine the plan, and when the overseas epidemic is relieved, it will choose an opportunity to implement the project on the island of Maldives.
The TBL project is a plastic recycling design solution provided by GGTC for marine plastic reduction with the support of the green new material laboratory established by GGTC. By configuring special material processing additives, the recycled plastic is processed into crafts, souvenirs and other related products. The project will further improve the follow-up development business model. The project will take the lead in setting up locations in the Maldives, gradually spread across the entire Maldives, and eventually spread to the world, promoting the sustainable development of islands/mountains/deserts and other areas with scarce resources and inconvenient transportation. The project was supported by the United Nations Coordinating Global Environment Facility.
