 台泥企業團打造永續能源的進程再度大步向前!台泥綠能公司攜手雲朗集團,將在知名少棒故鄉台東縣延平鄉紅葉村,打造「紅葉谷」(布農族語 Vakangan) 園區,此園區將成為全台灣第一個結合地熱的再生能源、永續觀光與地方共生共榮的示範園區。「紅葉谷」地熱正式發電運轉後,也將成為宜蘭清水地熱外,全台第二個地熱發電基地。

  延平鄉公所是先歷經一年再生能源評估與各家戶說明,取得部落會議同意開發再生能源後,再研擬委外招商案,並在廠商得標後,再度召開第二次部落會議,讓鄉公所、企業與鄉親一同討論園區的規劃。延平鄉公所胡黃廣文鄉長、台泥綠能翁吉良總經理與雲朗觀光張倚蘭副總經理也一同拜會台東縣政府饒慶鈴縣長,饒縣長除責成相關單位全力協助,也允諾與鄉公所及地方共同努力重振紅葉溫泉風華。未來紅葉谷也將致力串連鄉內五個村落的資源與景點,像是體驗布農族文化的「布農部落」、「卡那歲工作坊」、「阿布絲傳統服飾工作室」、以及重要慶典「射耳祭」、訴求環境山林旅遊體驗的「烏尼囊多元文化工作坊」、「鸞山森林博物館」、武陵綠色隧道以及 2626 市集,讓旅人看到各式風貌的延平。

  台泥指出,地熱發電是再生能源中可以 24 小時連續發電的「基載」穩定能源。且地熱發電是利用地球內部的高溫地層水推動汽輪機發電,搭配尾水回注技術達到取熱不取水的資源循環利用,取代煤炭、天然氣或核燃料,是一種更乾淨的發電方式。「紅葉谷綠能園區」目前進入地熱探勘井鑽探的籌備階段,台泥綠能將引進與美國、紐西蘭等先進國家同級的調查與評估技術進行探勘,未來也將與地方村民討論合作地熱資源的再利用,像是地熱能源的循環利用,有效發展延平鄉農特產烘乾技術。台泥綠能總經理翁吉良表示,「紅葉谷」是經過當地部落會議正式同意的名稱,台泥綠能將在 3 公頃的區域內建設一座約 1MW (1,000瓩) 的地熱發電廠及導入當地特色的泡湯溫泉園區,並結合雲朗集團在觀光領域的專業以及獲得米其林三星殊榮的經歷,使用在地食材打造富有地方特色的飲食體驗,同時計劃與當地遊程及民宿業者合作,建立一個旅遊平台 打造兼具溫泉、戲水、餐飲等多功能低密度開發的觀光休閒園區,同時發展綠色能源、循環經濟,開啟延平觀光的新篇章。

  台泥企業團於 2020 年開放花蓮和平水泥廠部分場域,成為全台灣第一個開放生態循環工廠 - 台泥 DAKA,2020 年全年累計造訪 DAKA 的旅客逾 250 萬人次,為「工業與社會的對話」、「工廠與周邊聚落的共存共榮」,開啟了嶄新模式。未來也將借鏡花蓮台泥 DAKA 的經驗,向南延伸至台東,協助紅葉部落地方創生、向北延伸至宜蘭漢本海灘,打造海洋驛站協力澳花部落,形成台灣東海岸的完整據點,讓永續發展、企業投資、社會參與、與地方發展和諧並存。

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- Taiwan's sea levels are rising at a higher rate than the rest of the world due to global warming, and the country may only have 12 years to move its capital inland to avoid flooding, according to a prominent meteorologist.

Sea levels around Taiwan are likely to rise faster than the global average due to the island's sub-tropical location, the rotation of the earth, the high sea temperatures in the Western Pacific Ocean, and the convergence of seawater and the thermal expansion effect, reported TechOrange.

Air Clean Taiwan (ACT) Director Yeh Guang-peng (葉光芃) told TechOrange that "The UK has reduced carbon for six consecutive years and its carbon levels have been restored to 1888 levels, yet the UK has still declared an emergency. However, Taiwan's CO2 emissions are increasing, and we [Taiwan, UK] are all islands, so our sea level will rise much higher than that of other countries."

Radio Taiwan International cited NGO Taiwan Action Alliance for Healthy Air (台灣健康空氣行動聯盟), as saying that the average global temperature is set to rise by one degree Celsius, while Taiwan is on a course to rise by 1.4 degrees, and Taipei is expected to rise by 1.7 degrees. This means that if the global average temperature rises by 1.5 degrees in 2030, Tapei will probably rise by over 2 degrees.

If the global temperature rises by 2 degrees by 2050, that means Taipei could see its average temperature rise by 3 to 4 degrees.

Chen Chao-lun (陳昭倫), a researcher at Academia Sinica's Biodiversity Research Center (BRC) told TechOrange that the sea around Taiwan is warming at one of the fastest rates in the world. Chen added that even if humans are able to restrict warming to within 1.5 degrees, 90 percent of the world's coral reefs will disappear.

Yeh also put forward specific examples. If the temperature rises by 2 degrees in 2050, the Taipei Songshan Airport and Dazhi luxury residential area will be inundated with sea water. Yeh predicts that in this scenario, planes will not be able to take off and land from Songshan Airport, and the New Taipei section of the Taoyuan Airport MRT would collapse.

The Taiwan Action Alliance for Healthy Air also predicts that by the end of the 21st Century, the Taipei Basin will be flooded to a height of three meters. They said that about one-third of the land in Greater Taipei would be underwater.

In the future, out of Taiwan's six major cities, the NGO predicts that only Taoyuan and Taichung would survive. Because Taipei lies in a basin, it aggravates the heat island effect, resulting in an even more rapid temperature rise, according to the organization.

The NGO said that if the rising sea reaches the Taipei Basin, the flood waters will be difficult to discharge because of the city's geographical layout. In addition, earthquakes brought on by climate change could aggravate the disaster in the basin.

In an interview with Formosa Television, Peng Chi-ming (彭啟明), an adjunct assistant professor with the National Central University's Department of Atmospheric Sciences, said, "The temperature rise may reach 1.5 degrees in 2032, so we only have 12 years left to relocate the capital. So we must act quickly."

The Taiwan Action Alliance for Healthy Air and climate change scholars are jointly calling on Taiwan's government to actively implement carbon reduction policies and consider immediately launching a plan to move the city of Taipei to higher ground.
