China News Service, April 6. According to the WeChat official account of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the second round of the sixth batch of central ecological and environmental protection inspection teams went deep into the front line and on-site, and verified a number of prominent ecological and environmental problems and a number of inaction. , Act slowly, do not take responsibility, do not confront hardships, and even deal with formal and bureaucratic problems such as perfunctory and deception.

In order to play a warning role and effectively promote the rectification of problems, the first batch of five typical cases is now being publicly notified.

The problem of illegal mining in Xinglong County, Chengde, Hebei Province is prominent and seriously damages the ecological environment

  In March 2022, the Central No. 1 Ecological Environmental Protection Inspectorate inspected Hebei Province and found that Xinglong County, Chengde City, had repeatedly banned illegal mining, recklessly encroached on nature reserves and woodlands, and caused serious ecological damage.

  Some mining enterprises in Xinglong County have not re-applied for mining licenses after the expiry of their mining rights, and the problem of unlicensed mining is prominent.

Large-scale unlicensed mining of ore has resulted in serious damage to the mountain, fragmentation of the mine and its surrounding areas, and extensive exposure of the surface, seriously damaging the natural ecology.

In March 2022, the on-site inspection team of the inspection team found that the Sandaochuan open-pit iron mine of Hongji Mining Company in Xinglong County was being mined without a license, which seriously damaged the natural ecology.

The comparison of satellite imagery shows that since 2019, the illegal occupation of a mining site in Liupozi Village, Jiaolanyu Town, Xinglong County, has significantly increased the area of ​​the Liuliping Macaque Provincial Nature Reserve

Jiangsu Zhenjiang Yangtze River Shoreline Cleaning and Renovation Promoting Ineffective Ecological Environment Problems Prominent

  The inspector found that Zhenjiang City did not include all the projects that occupied the river in violation of water laws and river management regulations and other laws and regulations into the cleanup and remediation list, and there was a problem of underreporting and omission.

In addition, the 142 projects listed in Zhenjiang's clean-up and rectification list were all reported to complete the rectification before the end of June 2020, but some projects were not cleaned and rectified in place.

Mongolia's Bayannaoer Urad Qianqi Iron Mine and other mining violations have highlighted serious ecological damage

  In March, the Central Third Ecological Environmental Protection Inspection Team inspected the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and found that the mining of the Uradqian Banner in Bayannaoer City has been developing disorderly for a long time, the ecological damage of large-scale open-pit mining is serious, and the violation of laws and regulations such as cross-border mining is prominent. Nearly 30,000 people Mu of desert grassland was illegally occupied, causing irreparable damage to the fragile ecosystem.

  There are 85 mines in Urad Qianqi, including 45 open-pit mines. The open-pit mining concentrated area forms "tiankengs" and "hills" where tailings and slag accumulate in the desert steppe.

In particular, the problem of ecological damage in the development of low-grade iron ore is particularly prominent. The mining pit area reaches 5,430 mu, accounting for more than half of the mining pit area of ​​the entire flag.

None of the eight open-pit mines inspected by the inspection team were mined and restored in accordance with the specifications. The vegetation was severely damaged and the ecological restoration was extremely difficult.

  In addition, 62 mining projects in Wulateqian Banner have encroached on desert grasslands, occupying a total area of ​​nearly 30,000 mu, which is a serious violation of the Grassland Law.

(hereinafter referred to as Haitong Cement) carried out brutal construction, and a large number of waste residues and spoils were dumped along the slopes on both sides of the mining area and the road in the mining area, resulting in the formation of a large area of ​​high and steep slopes in the mining area, and the ecological restoration of the mining area was not implemented. measures, the ecological damage is very serious.

The limestone mine of Qamdo Gaozheng Building Materials Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Gaozheng Building Materials) naturally rolls the mined ore from the top of the mountain at an altitude of about 4600 meters to the industrial square at an altitude of about 4200 meters, forming a gravel with a height difference of about 400 meters. Steep slopes, the natural ecology of the mountain in the mining area is completely destroyed, and the potential safety hazards are very prominent.

The limestone mine of Basu Conch Cement Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Basu Cement) has not implemented the environmental impact assessment requirements of "control while production", and has not taken dust suppression measures such as watering and dust reduction in the operation area and mine transportation roads, and dust-proof thatch covers for stockpiling materials.

  In addition, the relevant departments of the autonomous region approved the total production capacity of 4 cement clinker projects in Chamdo to be 2.55 million tons per year, but the actual completed production capacity exceeded 41.2% of the approved production capacity.

The "Notice on Serious Capacity Replacement and Prohibition of New Production Capacity in the Cement Flat Glass Industry" issued by the relevant state departments in 2018 clearly requires that once the behavior of "approving small ones and building large ones" is found, the competent industrial and information technology departments shall, together with relevant departments, order rectification. , before the rectification is in place, it shall not be put into production without authorization.
