Zhang Jianwu, a doctoral graduate of University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), is the founder of Anhui Zhongyan Electric Co Ltd, which is based in Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone.
In 1994, Zhang was admitted to the Department of Applied Chemistry of USTC, where he pursued his master's degree. After studying superconducting materials for three years, he chose physics as his main focus for doing his doctorate at USTC. Then he achieved further education in South Korea and Japan, returning to USTC in 2004 to teach.
In 2014, Zhang was encouraged by the university to start his business under a project studied by his team, the new energy-saving fresh air system for wireless communication base stations.
In 2016, Zhang's team developed the first generation of the smart fresh air system for wireless communication base stations, which were able to save 60 percent in energy. Its innovative structural design and smart control can make full use of the environmental temperature difference between indoor and outdoor base stations to quickly direct the heat in the base stations outwards.
The products have been used to upgrade the communication base stations of China's three major telecom operators in Guizhou province and have won great applause.

The R&D team produced the advanced smart maintenance-free quantum fresh air system based on the research results of related quantum materials and the quantum effects of materials in 2017.
The system doesn't require frequent maintenance or produce ozone and negative oxygen ion, which can be further developed and widely used in large buildings, such as hotels, office buildings, shopping malls, theaters, hospitals, airports, and transport stations, according to Zhang.
In light of the COVID-19 prevention and control measures, the company developed a new system used for sterilization and disinfection in public spaces in May 2020. The system is expected to be further promoted in the near future.
