Technology Development for Rural Environmental Optimization
 Date: 2014-01-28  Page Views:

Coordinated by RADI and with support from the National Key Technology R&D Program during the 12th Five-year plan period (2011-2015), researchers have made headway towards developing technologies vital for rural environmental monitoring and landscape construction. This was revealed at a conference held on January 17 at the CAS Nanjing Institute of Soil Science.

Headed by Prof. GUO Ziqi from RADI, the project kicked off in September 2012 with six subcomponents. To solve the problems of insufficient rural capacity in environmental monitoring and landscaping, researchers have worked hard to develop and demonstrate environment monitoring equipment that fits the needs of villages and townships through technology integration, and collect monitoring data to offer scientific evidence for environment evaluation and landscape construction.

Over the past two years, the team has been successful in developing several equipment that are low-cost and easy to operation and maintain, including more than 10 sets of different instruments for monitoring air, soil, water, pesticide remnants and electromagnetic radiation, one mobile terminal for environment monitoring data collection. They also filed for three patents and published more than research 35 papers.   

According to their plan, the members of all the six subcomponents will continuously perform data collection and analysis at two demonstration townships in Jiangsu and Hunan provinces, so as to make preparations for the integration and demonstration of comprehensive technologies for the environment monitoring and optimization in rural areas.
