Six measures to protect air quality in autumn and winter
Fight against smog and deal with heavy pollution
(Reporter Zhao Jing) Autumn and winter are the frequent seasons of "smoggy days" in the north. The reporter learned from the Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment on September 16 that the province’s ecological environment department has deployed early this year’s autumn and winter air pollution prevention and control key tasks, and clarified six measures to ensure that the province’s environmental air quality goals are achieved.
According to reports, the average concentration of PM2.5 in autumn and winter in our province is about twice that of other seasons, and the number of heavily polluted days accounts for more than 90% of the number of heavily polluted days in the year. Since the beginning of this year, the environmental air quality in our province has improved year-on-year. As of the end of July, the average concentration of PM2.5 in the province was 42 micrograms per cubic meter, and the proportion of good days reached 77.5%, which reached the national assessment standard, but the situation of achieving the annual standard is still severe. In order to fight against smog and heavy pollution weather, from now to the end of the year, our province’s ecological environment department will focus on doing a good job in coal-fired boilers, straw burning, diesel trucks, volatile organic compounds, heavy pollution weather and heavy pollution. Remediation of contaminated areas.
Strictly investigate the upgrading and transformation of coal-fired boilers, and urge enterprises to speed up the progress, invert the construction period, and follow up one by one; investigate the operation of pollution control facilities, and strictly penalize those who exceed the standard discharge or the abnormal operation of the facility. Regarding the management and control of straw incineration, early planning, early deployment, and total banning of the burning have been achieved, with all-out efforts to manage and control, and guard against death; keep an eye on high-speed railways, highways, airports, surrounding cities and key areas, and prohibit open-air burning of straw.
To strengthen the inspection and control of diesel trucks, the ecological environment department will cooperate with the public security traffic management department to carry out law enforcement actions against vehicles exceeding the standard, and strictly investigate and deal with vehicles that exceed the standard in key areas and key periods. Intensify the control of volatile organic compounds, strengthen and standardize leakage detection and repair management, strictly penalize illegal discharge or abnormal operation of governance facilities, and guide enterprises in key industries to perform off-peak inspections.
In accordance with the requirements of "early, clear, practical, and strict", all localities will strictly implement the emergency response plan for heavy pollution weather. Before October 15th, they will organize emergency drills for heavy pollution weather, improve early warning procedures and response measures, and clarify the division of labor and compact responsibilities. Our province will implement in-depth remediation of heavily polluted areas in 21 key air pollution areas, combine the "one point and one policy" and the implementation effect to comprehensively analyze the causes of pollution, grasp the root of the problem, implement refined control, strengthen territorial management, and ensure Measures are implemented. At the same time, we will do a good job in the normal control of scattered coal, scattered and polluted enterprises and dust, strengthen refined management, and ensure that we win the battle to defend the blue sky.
