Winning technologies will be showcased online on the 3iPET platform for free, and will be prioritized in off-line promotions among a collaborative network of hubs in China and overseas, in technology matchmaking and exchange activities organized by 3iPET, as well as in funding.

  • Background

International Intelligent Integrated

China’s endeavors in ecological and environmental protection have evolved to focus on improving the quality and impact of projects. With the support of Ministry of Environmental Protection and in an attempt to carry out integration, evaluation, matchmaking and promotion of technologies, the Foreign Economic Cooperation Office (FECO) under Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) has launched the Integrated, Intelligent and International Platform for Environmental Technologies (hereinafter referred to as the “3iPET” with details available at the tenet of “promoting environment improvement through technological innovation”, the 3iPET sets out to solicit “Top 100 Environmental Protection Technologies” for the third time. In the past two years, this activity attracted more than one thousand environmental technologies from home and abroad, with a goal to identify the best technologies that demonstrate strong potential for continuous improvement. 3iPET selected more than sixty advanced and practical environmental protection technologies from around the world through an extensive screening procedure involving independent experts in relevant industries. Through a series of matchmaking and promotional activities, 3iPET has facilitated many of the selected top 100 technologies to be applied across China. Therefore, dozens of technological breakthroughs in the fields of wastewater treatment, VOCs treatment, river dredging and soil remediation have played a positive role in improving local environmental treatment.


  • The third 3iPET solicitation for top 100 environmental protection technologies

MEP’s FECO and Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences will jointly hold the third “3iPET Solicitation of Top 100 Environmental Protection Technologies” this year. The solicitation is open to proven technologies in air, water and soil (including solid waste) pollution prevention/control around the world and will organize industry experts to review and evaluate in a holistic manner based on the progressiveness, practicability, economical efficiency, and sophistication of a given technology, along with the service capability of enterprise. Note that the following technologies will enter directly into the second round of expert review:technologies that are listed in the prioritized environmental protection technology catalogue issued by Ministry of Environmental Protection, National Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Science and Technology;technologies receiving Environmental Protection Science and Technology Award of China; technologies regarded as prioritized national practical technologies and demonstration projects in environmental protection; and technologies that are recommended by China’s national industry associations.
