About the book

With the rapid development of the economy, human civilization has experienced fishing and hunting civilization, agricultural civilization to the present green civilization, and the relationship between economy and environment has also changed from the pursuit of economic development at the expense of environment to the present harmonious development of economy and environment. Clean production and circular economy have become the general trend of domestic development. The five-pronged strategy proposed at the 18th national congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), including ecological improvement, shows that the country has begun to attach importance to the circular and friendly development of the environment and economy. How to reduce energy consumption in the production process, and how to reuse waste has become a big goal for producers.

The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview for reading, to deepen everyone's understanding of the circular economy, change the original way of thinking and way of life, and promote the development of society towards a virtuous circle.
