The 2020 Taiwan Innotech Expo Sustainability Pavilion Presents the Circular Technology Island

With the increasing depletion of the earth’s resources, countries worldwide are more determined about green industrial policies. The European Commission adopted the New Circular Economy Action Plan this March. The UK, Japan, and China will draw up a “marine pollution map” in response to the “marine plastic crisis.” These show that the green industry has become a major field of study for human survival and reducing resource consumption. Therefore, the “Sustainability Pavilion” of the “2020 Taiwan Innotech Expo” will focus on the green industrial chain. The core values are “sustainable living,” “sustainable energy,” and “sustainable resources” tied in with “new agriculture,” “green energy technology,” “circular economy,” and “workplace safety” that reflect the four aspects of life. The pavilion will present more than one hundred technologies that can build a sustainable home in the next ten to twenty years.
