With an increasing demand for glass greenhouses in China, many questions are coming up, one of which is the standard of glass used for greenhouses. On 17th June, a meeting regarding developing a standard for horticultural glass was held by China Building Material Council (the CBMC).
Although China has a lot of agriculture, high-tech agriculture development is still a new development. There also is a lack of industry standards in many terms, from design, production to installation, and even operation. This was the main purpose of this meeting.
The CBMC has invited experts from research institutes, universities, industry associations, testing institutes, production companies, and businesses to this meeting in order to discuss the standards of greenhouse glass.
The aim of this meeting is to construct a specific standard and also publish this. This standard will be including terms and definitions, classification and marking, technical requirements, test methods, inspection rules and marking, transportation, and storage of ultra-white embossed glass covering materials for agricultural greenhouses. Standardizing the performance index of glass conforms to the requirements of social and economic benefits, is conducive to the standardized construction of modern agricultural facilities and equipment, and has great strategic significance for promoting the standardization process of facility agriculture, promoting the comprehensive construction of new socialist countryside and new agriculture, and promoting rural revitalization.
