A large number of renewable resource enterprises have grown and developed, and in some areas, industrial clusters has begun to take shape. The level of technology and equipment in the renewable resources industry has been greatly enhanced, and the development model has continued to innovate. The development and utilization of renewable resources has become an important source of national resource supply, and has played an active role in alleviating resource constraints, reducing environmental pollution, promoting employment, and improving people's livelihood. At the same time, however, it also faces some outstanding problems, mainly because the concept of recycling has not yet been popularized in the whole society. The recycling system needs to be improved, the degree of industrial intensification is low, the level of technical equipment is not high, and the social awareness of recycled products is low, supporting policies are not perfect, the service system has not been established, and the basic capabilities such as standards, statistics, and talents are weak.
