Chinese cleantech spreading its wings by Justin Blows

Every day one or more of the very very many Chinese Cleantech companies seem to be spreading their wings and reaching new heights.

The Chinese car and lithium ion battery manufacturer BYD, which is very keen on electric cars, is according to this report establishing a presence in the US.  Apparently, at least a dozen Chinese car manufacturers are moving to mass produce electric cars.  And it is no wonder – while China imports half of its oil, car production is expected to hit 19 million units by 20106.  Moving to electricity could really help China’s energy security and greenhouse gas emission problems.  With such a strong local market they are set to make a big leap into western markets.

Today, Novarise, will be listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.  Novarise Renewable Resources International Ltd (Novarise), a company based in China, is an integrated green producer of a range of polypropylene fibre-based products made from post-consumer polypropylene waste materials.  Novarise has developed its own technology to utilise up to 100 per cent of recycled polypropylene waste to produce polypropylene filament yarn, and other finished products such as straps and rope.
