The “2022 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum & Exhibition” (2022MIECF) will unveil an electric motorcycle test drive activity, along with the green mobility project, green technologies, consulting service on “carbon neutrality”, and waste reduction products to present the full picture of future green urban development.
Participating traders can try out their selected models and have a taste of the low-carbon driving experience on a light-duty vehicle. This will give them a better understanding of the performance of different vehicles and allow them to enquire about the supporting services including the charging stations.
Six exhibition zones with four newly-added features
This year’s offline exhibition is composed of six zones dedicated to the theme “Commitment to Green Development, Moving towards the Dual Carbon Goals”. Among them, there are two newly-added zones including the Eco-friendly Tableware Zone which will exhibit tableware made of eco-friendly materials; and the Remote Exhibiting Zone which will provide a display platform for products and services for exhibitors who cannot participate in the event in person.
Meanwhile, the Green Mobility Zone, is set up again this year, will exhibit the vehicles and equipment from over 30 electric vehicle and motorcycle brands, with electric motorcycles available for test drives for the first time; the Greenovation Zone will showcase innovative green technologies and those contributing to waste reduction and plastic waste reduction, coupled with the consulting service on “carbon neutrality”.
Green mobility software and hardware assembling in the Green Mobility Zone
As one of the highlight zones in the 2022MIECF, the Green Mobility Zone has attracted upwards of 30 electric vehicle and motorcycle brands, many of which will release new products during the event. Eco-friendly alternative fuel vehicles and associated equipment will be exhibited in this zone, covering smart mobility technology for alternative fuel vehicles, smart transportation, smart driving systems, and charging technology.
Moreover, the Green Mobility Zone will continue to promote green commuting in an endeavour to put forward smart transportation solutions for sustainable urban development, overhaul the traditional transportation system to fuel the establishment and growth of a new data-enabled, intelligent, and socialised transportation system, whilst pressing ahead with the research, development, and application of cutting-edge technologies, including self-driving and charging facilities, as well as their supporting equipment.

Promoting green mobility policies in co-operation with SAR Government
As promoting green transportation is at the top of the agenda, the Macao SAR Government has made vigorous efforts in advancing various policies and measures to manage mobile sources of air pollution in recent years, covering newly imported vehicles, vehicles in use, motor fuels, and the promotion of green vehicles. Following the implementation of the “Financial Support Scheme for the Swapping of Motorcycles and Scooters with Two-stroke Engines”, the “Financial Support Scheme for the Scrapping of Obsolete Motorcycles and Their Replacement by New Electric Motorcycles” and the “Financial Support Scheme for the Scrapping of Old Diesel-powered Vehicles” were launched this year. The “Financial Support Scheme for the Scrapping of Obsolete Motorcycles and Their Replacement by New Electric Motorcycles” further encourages vehicle owners to replace their obsolete motorcycles with new electric motorcycles, mainstreaming the electric motorcycles. According to relevant statistics, after the implementation of the above policies, the air quality in Macao has been greatly improved.
Consulting service on “carbon neutrality” and green technology project added to the Greenovation Zone
The Greenovation Zone in the 2022MIECF will feature a professional consulting service on “carbon neutrality” that provides companies with information and professional advice on “carbon neutrality”, including carbon allowances and detection, carbon credit purchasing and selling, carbon asset trading system, carbon neutrality and carbon offset system, in a bid to boost companies’ green transformations.
The Greenovation Zone will also showcase innovative green technologies and those related to waste reduction and plastic waste reduction. Innovative green technologies and smart technology products will have a greater presence in this zone.
