China News Service Shijiazhuang, May 13 (Li Qian, Huang Xinyao) A reporter learned from the Hebei Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment on 13th that in recent years, Hebei has promoted the ultra-low emissions of six major industries including electricity, steel, coking, cement, flat glass, and ceramics. Renovation, greatly reduce the total amount of pollutant emissions, and ensure continuous improvement of air quality. As of the end of 2019, the province has completed 331 ultra-low transformation projects in the iron and steel industry, 83 ultra-low emission transformation projects in the coking industry, and 116 advanced in-depth treatment projects in the thermal power industry.

  Xie Wenyong, director of the Atmospheric Environment Department of the Hebei Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, said that industrial enterprises are the focus of pollution control in Hebei Province, and the main direction and key areas to win the blue sky defense battle. According to expert assessments, the primary PM2.5, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxide emissions of industrial enterprises in Hebei Province accounted for 35%, 61%, and 48% of the province's atmospheric pollutant emissions, respectively.

  Focusing on promoting the green development and high-quality development of industrial enterprises, Hebei Province has perfected regulations and policy systems, developed and issued ultra-low emission transformation standards for industries such as iron and steel, coking, cement, flat glass, and boilers in Hebei Province, and led enterprises to improve pollution control standards. At present, 18 cement companies, 3 flat glass companies, and 13 ceramic companies have completed ultra-low emission renovations, which has greatly reduced pollutant emissions.

  In terms of project emission reduction, Hebei Province will further implement the ultra-low emission transformation of 18 flat glass companies, 38 cement companies, and 54 ceramic companies, and promote the comprehensive renovation of 1,874 industrial furnaces. While grasping the control of fixed sources, we organized and implemented a batch of unorganized emission source control projects.

  In terms of structural emission reduction, Hebei Province will strictly control new production capacity in industries with excess capacity, and implement capacity replacement, coal replacement, and multiple reductions in pollutant emissions in new, rebuilt, and expanded projects. Promote capacity reduction in crude steel, coking, flat glass and other industries. Accelerate the implementation of a batch of clean energy alternatives such as natural gas and electricity in key industrial furnaces to further reduce pollutant emissions.

  In terms of management and emission reduction, Hebei has issued relevant measures to support in-depth pollution control of enterprises in terms of taxation, emission rights trading, and differentiated management and control, and to create a good governance environment for enterprises. At the same time, install an online monitoring system and distributed control system in fixed source management, and build a management and control platform in unorganized emissions management, and an access control system and video monitoring system in clean transportation, and further strengthen pollution source management with an environmentally friendly smart platform.

  He Litao, deputy director of the Hebei Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, said that in the next step, Hebei Province will continue to promote the comprehensive treatment of atmospheric pollution in key industries with ultra-low emission reconstruction or in-depth treatment, refine the treatment measures, and reduce emissions Emission reduction, management and emission reduction, further reduce the total amount of pollutant emissions of enterprises, and help win the blue sky defense battle.
