Original title: China's environmental situation is still grim Combat PM2.5 into focus

International Online reports (Reporter Lin) in the national environmental protection work conference on the 24th, the Chinese Environmental Protection Minister Zhou Shengxian said this, China's environmental situation is still grim, and in 2013 at the completion of major pollutants emission reduction tasks to focus on doing the based prevention PM2.5 air pollution prevention and control.

Last year, China's environmental protection work has achieved some success, to the annual emissions of major pollutants task completed. The statistics show, and the year before the last year of sulfur dioxide emissions decreased by 4.5%, a decrease of 3% of the emissions of the chemical oxygen demand, ammonia emissions decreased by 2.5%, nitrogen oxide emissions decreased by 2.8%, exceeding the goal of the beginning of the year last year tasks. In addition, a series of work to solve the people's livelihood and environmental issues also made new progress last year. For example, the introduction of the implementation of the new standards for ambient air quality; strengthen the protection of drinking water sources and groundwater pollution prevention; advanced heavy metals, hazardous waste and chemical pollution prevention.

However, it is undeniable that China's environmental situation is still not optimistic, recently much fog and haze appeared again sounded the environmental alarm bells. On the day of the national environmental protection work conference, Environmental Protection Minister Zhou face the current environmental challenges.

The total discharge of major pollutants emission reduction task is arduous. Existing capacity release brought pollutants incremental pressure, motor vehicle emissions of nitrogen oxides is still an upward trend. Environmental pollution is still very serious, about 70% the city can not reach the new ambient air quality standards, half of the urban area where groundwater pollution is serious, and 57% of the groundwater monitoring sites water quality is poor or even very poor environmental risks continue to increase, more prominent environmental problems that harm public health. "

Zhou said that the face of the current environmental situation, this year, China's environmental protection department will vigorously promote the construction of ecological civilization, efforts to solve outstanding environmental problems that harm public health. The day of the meeting, the Ministry of Environmental Protection to determine this year's major pollutants emission reduction targets.

"Emission reduction targets in 2013: compared with 2012, the chemical oxygen demand and sulfur dioxide emissions were reduced by 2% and 2.5% reduction in ammonia emissions, nitrogen oxide emissions decreased by 3%."
Recently, more fog and haze, serious air pollution, prevention and control of major air pollutants PM2.5 aroused widespread concern. In this regard, Zhou said that this year, the Ministry of Environmental Protection will be based prevention PM2.5 air pollution prevention identified as the focus of environmental protection work.

"Conscientiously sum up the monitoring of implementation of the first phase of the air quality standards, to ensure stable operation of 74 cities in the first stage 496 monitoring sites, and further promote the linkage air quality monitoring in key areas such as Beijing, Tianjin, the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta 2013 113 key environmental protection cities, and environmental protection model city to carry out the monitoring of PM2.5, including six indicators, monitoring the implementation of the program of the second stage of the development of air quality standards, and monitoring data released before the end of December. "

Zhou said, the environmental protection departments will also promote the PM2.5 statistics included in the emissions of pollutants, monitoring and evaluation system, the implementation of the management of urban air quality standards, improve regional air pollution joint prevention and control mechanism, and promote the multi-pollutant collaborative prevention, deepening of the motor vehicle pollution prevention and good air pollution emergency response work.

The official stressed that this year, the Ministry of Environmental Protection will by environmental evaluation function strictly from the tight control the "high energy consumption, high pollution and resource-based low-level redundant construction and overcapacity project construction, speed up the elimination of backward production capacity to support strategic emerging industry, infrastructure and livelihood projects.
