Developmental Mode for Circular Economy in the Yellow River Delta

Zhang Xu-Liang, Zhang Zhao-Hui, Xu Zong-Jun, Yao Hai-Yan, and Zheng Ke-Fang
Abstract—Due to high strength use of natural resources and large quantity of pollutants discharge, high pressure is given to the fragile environment of the Yellow River Delta, so circular economy should be developed in the Yellow River delta. At present the circular economy has been developed in an elementary scale in the Yellow River delta, yet there are also some factors which have limited the circular economy development, such as inadequate understanding of the importance of circular economy, unreasonable industry structure, lack of policy and technical support, fragile environment and too much pollutants discharge. The authors also proposed some countermeasures for circular economy development in the Yellow River Delta, such as constructing the industrial structure which fits for the requirements of circular economy development, reducing energy consumption, improving the natural resources using efficiency, promoting the ecological construction of oil field and the coordinated economy development of oil field and local area, vigorously developing the marine circular economy, constructing ecological city, and creating a circular society and etc.

Index Terms—Industrial cluster, industry chain, energy saving and consumption reducing, Yellow River Delta.
