Green promotes the development of Dongfeng

September 6, 2021
China's auto industry in September, the harvest season.

With the approach of the 17th China Automotive Industry Development (TEDA) International Forum, the annual theme of "Integration?6?1Innovation?6?1Green" is causing heated discussions. Under the new challenges and opportunities brought by the carbon peak and carbon neutral goals, the transformation tide of the auto industry is also heating up, and major auto companies are competing to play the main theme on the road of green development of the auto industry.

As a backbone enterprise in my country’s national automobile industry, Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Dongfeng Company”) actively fulfills its emission reduction responsibilities, and promotes the “Green Dongfeng 2025” and “Technology Leap Forward” actions. Start with the promotion of energy saving and emission reduction in the entire life cycle of automobiles and the entire industry chain, and strive to lead the way in achieving the dual-carbon goals and set an example.

Taking new energy as a breakthrough, launching green products

In January this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology once again emphasized that the development of new energy vehicles is the focus of promoting energy conservation and emission reduction. Adhering to the simultaneous development of green and low-carbon technology routes such as electric, hybrid, and hydrogen, Dongfeng is on the road to accelerate the development of new energy vehicles, and plans to realize the electrification of new models of the main passenger car brand in 2024.

To consolidate the industrialization and systemization capabilities of the development of new energy vehicles, Dongfeng Company took the lead in the layout. The Dongfeng New Energy Industrial Park, located in Wuhan, has built an operating capacity of 400,000 sets of electronic control, 200,000 sets of flat wire motors, 280,000 sets of electric drive assemblies, 100,000 sets of battery systems, and 300,000 IGBT modules.

Lantu FREE rolls off its first mass production car

In the field of high-end new energy, the first listed model of the "Lantu" brand, Landu FREE, has been delivered, and 3,689 orders have been obtained within 43 days of listing, quickly winning consumer and market recognition. It is worth mentioning that Lantu FREE "Amber Battery" has obtained China's first "no smoke, no fire, no explosion" safety certification. The thermal safety design of Lantu's automotive power battery has reached an industry-leading level.

As an important solution to achieve decarbonization, hydrogen energy is self-evident in the process of achieving the goal of "carbon peak and carbon neutrality". Dongfeng Company is seizing the opportunity to promote the construction of hydrogen refueling stations in some regions, and launches the hydrogen core, hydrogen yuan, and hydrogen boat technology brand strategy in the field of hydrogen energy. At present, Dongfeng Hydrogen Boat, the first domestic full-power fuel cell passenger vehicle planned for mass production, will carry out demonstration operations of hydrogen fuel cell passenger vehicles in Foshan in the third quarter of this year. In terms of commercial vehicles, the 12-ton hydrogen fuel logistics model independently developed by Dongfeng Company was included in the list of "Road Motor Vehicle Manufacturers and Products" (Batch #346). Dongfeng Tianlong KL hydrogen fuel cell tractors were officially put into operation. Go wider.

Focusing on green and high-efficiency, building two power brands, Longqing for commercial vehicles and Mach for passenger vehicles, to promote the transformation and upgrading of traditional vehicles, has also become an inevitable choice for Dongfeng to promote the green development of the industry. The whole series of Longqing Power brand products-4 engines (DDi11, DDi13, DDi75, DDi50) and 2 gearboxes (DA14, DT14) all lead the industry to reach the National VI emission standards. Mach power brand C15TDR+HD120 hybrid assembly golden power combination, compared with traditional power, the power performance is improved by more than 30%, and the thermal efficiency is 41.07%, the highest in the industry.

"By 2025, the sales of commercial vehicles, autonomous passenger vehicles and new energy vehicles will reach 1 million. The construction of Heyue Dongfeng and the vigorous implementation of the'Green Dongfeng 2025 Action' will reduce the comprehensive energy consumption per 10,000 yuan of output by 15%, and the sales of new energy vehicles will account for More than 20% of the company's total sales." Dongfeng Chairman and Party Secretary Zhu Yanfeng clarified the emission reduction target for the "14th Five-Year Plan".

Building energy-saving and environmentally friendly vehicles, creating a green factory

As the industry transforms from fuel vehicles to pure electric vehicles, emissions during the use phase have been greatly reduced, but new challenges have been raised to the production process, and the promotion of energy conservation and emission reduction in the entire life cycle of the vehicle and the entire industry chain has become one of Dongfeng's green development confidence .

Adhering to the concept of "building energy-saving and environmentally-friendly vehicles in an energy-saving and environmentally friendly manner", Dongfeng Company continues to promote green production methods, comprehensively build green factories, strengthen the application of green processes and low-carbon manufacturing technologies, and plan to reduce carbon emission intensity by 15% by 2025 .

Dongfeng Nissan Huadu Factory

Intensification of workshops, harmless raw materials, clean production, waste recycling, low-carbon energy... The "green factory" created by Dongfeng Company implements the green development model in daily production. The Guangzhou Huadu Plant of Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Company was awarded the title of the first batch of "Green Factory" in the country. In the "Fifth Batch of Green Manufacturing List" officially announced by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in 2020, Dongfeng Honda Automobile Co., Ltd. won the two honorary titles of "National Green Factory" and "National Green Supply Chain Demonstration Enterprise". The vehicle plant of Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd. was selected as the list of green factories, and the DDi11 vehicle diesel engine of Dongfeng Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd. was selected as the list of green design products.

Sewage Treatment System of Wuhan Plant of Dongfeng Passenger Vehicle Company

At the Wuhan plant of Dongfeng Passenger Cars, nickel-containing wastewater, oil-containing wastewater, and paint-containing wastewater are treated and turned into "reclaimed water" for goldfish to swim freely. The varnish VOC concentration incineration system in the paint shop meets the most stringent domestic automotive paint VOC emission standards.

The Lantu 4.0 world-class digital factory integrates global leading technologies such as big data, edge cloud, AI, and the Internet of Things. Automatic resin workshop and digital assembly workshop. While ensuring the high-end quality of Lantu FREE, it is also at the forefront of the industry in terms of energy saving and emission reduction.

Deepen strategic cooperation and build a green ecology

Double carbon not only accelerates the power revolution of the automobile industry, but may also promote a reshaping of the automobile industry structure. In this new revolution that promotes the green development of the automotive industry, Dongfeng is working with companies in the transportation, energy, information, and financial industry chains and ecosystems to create a green ecosystem and build a cross-industry green ecosystem.

Zhixin Semiconductor Co., Ltd. IGBT module officially put into production

In March this year, Dongfeng Company and Shiyan City held a special meeting on "Joining Hands to Create a New Energy Development'Shiyan Model'". The two parties will further deepen cooperation and jointly build a modern new automobile city; in April, Dongfeng Passenger Vehicle Company and Aodong New Energy held a strategic cooperation agreement signing ceremony in Wuhan to start all-round cooperation around the power exchange mode; In July, Dongfeng Corporation and CRRC independently developed and produced the automotive-grade IGBT chip module production line and put into mass production, realizing the realization of the IGBT. The autonomous control of the "brain" of a new energy vehicle.
