Mr. Xu's new home is being decorated, "home child only a 2 year old, so I bought in material is pay attention to whether the environmental protection low carbon." But yesterday in building materials market choose floor experience has let his befuddled, bamboo floor and wooden floor businessmen each have each "low carbon said," the bamboo materials short growth cycle, so low carbon? Wood floor can adjust indoor temperature, so low carbon? This can't help letting people born doubt, "low carbon" how to define? Different products, various businesses will get an alibi. And, bamboo furnitureafter all, is there a recognized standard, let consumers buy the rest assured?
Mr. Xu first came to the city of the building materials market baili bamboo floor shop, when sales personnel a heard he want a choose and buy to pay more attention to environmental protection and the health of the floor, it introduces a heavy bamboo floor, carbonized color, hardness in 1100 ~ 1300. When the clerk is such explanations bamboo floor why is low carbon, "because bamboo itself is a kind of original material, belongs to the natural products, zero-formaldehyde, without any additives. The key point of bamboo is short growth cycle, are mostly four or five years, and a tree cut down to make wooden floor is to decades, as bamboo production must be more ecological low carbon".
Later, Mr. Xu and in another real wood floor shop heard about real wood "the low carbon said" : of woodiness material floor can absorb water through and evaporation to regulate the temperature of a room, the character of lumber can make the air humidity keep within the scope of the comfortable in the human body, thus more environmental protection low carbon. But when Mr. Xu puts forward to see related certificate, the businessman said no.
The trade company marketing of their product is really the "low carbon" floor, and each have each interpretation. So, what exactly is the floor is "low carbon"? The author interviews a new concept of domestic outfit design lee designer. He thinks, the floor is low carbon, one is to see in the process of carbon emissions, bamboo flooringit has nothing to do with material, and technology has the relations; The second is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as the goal, the low energy consumption and low pollution as the foundation, reduce to live in carbon dioxide emissions. "The market a few businessmen advertise their products are low carbon, but in fact they even these products in the production and use of process how carbon emissions are not clear, hang a tag will say low carbon floor. This kind of practice is to consumer's irresponsible."
Floor low carbon businessmen each have each claim
The writer visited the city building materials materials market in found that, "low carbon" this concept is not only exists in the floor this product, coating, furniture, decoration materials such as ceramic tile also in succession dozen "low carbon" and "environmental protection" banner, and the prices are 5% more expensive than regular produce-10%. In the city near east bus station has a lot of paint shop, each paint shop in basic sales with "low carbon" related products, such as "low carbon children's environmental protection emulsioni paint" and "biology gene low carbon coating", "low carbon qing flavour metope lacquer", "zero VOC (organic volatile) coating dozens of. "People decorate more pay attention to environmental protection, low carbon, as long as and low carbon take the above products sell is very good." A coating the boss tells the author, these two years, the store sales and "low carbon" related coating product grow by nearly 1 times, especially some newly-married family, or a family with children, whether to paint the environmental protection low carbon is very exquisite, "we suggest or low carbon children rimmon, high and low carbon environmental emulsioni paint nai clear flavour metope lacquer sell is very good."
The survey found that sells on the market "the low carbon" coating prices than the ordinary paint a cut. Like cypress high and low carbon qing flavour metope lacquer price as high as 67 yuan/square metre, and normal metope lacquer is as long as 50-60 yuan/square metre, xi rimmon low carbon children than similar environmental emulsioni paint another kind of environmental protection emulsioni paint your 8% / square metre.
The personage inside course to the author revealed that they sell products, tend to recommend orientation "low carbon" product, because it not only cater to consumer psychology, bamboo kitchenand more importantly to business is concerned, "low carbon" coating higher profits, of course, also don't expel some illegal traders "fish in troubled waters", a "low carbon" concept of sell high price, it's hard to tell consumers a true and false.
And low carbon "take top" price is a cut
In the interview, the author to those who run "low carbon" building materials business puts forward some problems, but SanBuZhi ask businessman who anticipate.
"This type of 'low carbon' coatings have related certificate?" "No, the manufacturer is such propaganda, and product packaging is marked low carbon products is."
"So have product main indexes of inspection report?" "Also have no."
"' low carbon 'have a state standard?" "I don't know."
The author discovered that the so-called high carbon or low carbon, seems to just manufacturers and merchants of one-way conversation. From formaldehyde-free, non-toxic these consumers of easy to understand publicity slogans, and to "do not contain CAC", "low VOC" ordinary consumers don not understand publicity slogans, and all became "low carbon" pronoun. "People stay home is the longest place, if indeed there is a 'low carbon' coatings, 'low carbon' floor, 'low carbon' furniture I'm sure will be preferred, but now we wondered whether low carbon, what product just worth we trust?" Citizens, the author puts forward his own question. Question: SanBuZhi ask businessman, "low carbon" dubious credibility
For consumers about low carbon building materials of the confusion, the writer visited the city pledges inspect bureau, got a unexpectedly answer: countries about building materials of no low carbon standard, in the industry, "low carbon" is still just a concept.
Responsible to tell the author, now countries are not issued installs building materials "the low carbon" standards, so that, on the market in the sale of building materials product not really the low carbon, don't measure, can only say that manufacturer or businessmen do STH without authorization of the concept of ". Decorate building materials of low carbon should means low emissions, the low consumption and low pollution, it is not like building materials "green products" quality authentication, as long as few index such as formaldehyde standards can be judged. Because building materials is "low carbon" is a concept of total life cycle, not to provide a product of a monitoring report shall prevail, and from raw materials to the acquisition, processing production and use process minimize the consumption of natural resources, as well as whether can recycling and so on various monitoring, even in international are uncertain.
Facing now in the market a lot of building materials business played the environmental protection low carbon signboard, attract the attention of the consumer practice, experts remind consumers have to remain vigilant, beware of a trap. Consumer is when the choose and buy can look for the "Chinese environment mark" certification, is also a lot of company said in the "ten ring the authentication" and "the green products" quality authentication. The author understands, at present only the two authentication marks have official nature, is trusted, other kinds of advertisements are lack of authorities authentication.
