The master yiyi building in Beijing’s Liaoning province has begun construction on a new, more sustainable building system that will include wind turbines, solar panels and recycled wood, and could become the world’s first truly zero-carbon building.
“This is the first master yin building, but we are building on the foundation of the first yi-type building, and we are trying to develop the system,” said Liang Guangyu, the building’s project manager.
The building will feature sustainable features including a solar-panel roof that is embedded in a roof, and the building will also include a rooftop wind turbine that will produce power for the city’s power grid.
The structure will also incorporate carbon capture and storage technology to reduce CO 2 emissions.
“The project is not just a construction project,” said Li Jingtao, a professor of building science at the University of Wisconsin.
“We are also aiming to make the construction process environmentally friendly and low cost.”
The master building is part of the country’s first carbon-neutral project.
The new building system was developed by Beijing-based Dalian Green Group, which has a joint venture with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
China is the world champion of building efficiency, with the country ranked third in the world for overall construction efficiency.
However, in the last decade, the country has seen a rapid increase in CO 2 pollution.
The country has been facing increasing pressure to cut emissions from its manufacturing and construction industries, and in the process has set new standards for how to reduce greenhouse gases.
The city of Beijing, China, is home to over 1.3 million people, most of whom live in the capital, which was ranked by the World Bank as the world most polluted city.
The environmental group Greenpeace said it is critical that the city of 5 million people not only achieve its targets, but also to make sure the construction industry is doing the same.
“In the last few years, we’ve seen a major shift in the building industry,” said Greenpeace China program director and co-founder Sam Thorne.
“And as a result, China is becoming more environmentally conscious and making the most of the new opportunities it’s had in building efficiency.”
