VOCs emissions into the focus of gas control around the special action in full swing

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions were included in the total control indicators during the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, and the State Council issued the "13th Five-Year Plan" Comprehensive Work Plan for Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction. At this point, all parts of the country began to declare war on this "invisible killer. Up to now, many places have started a new journey of haze control from the perspectives of policy, economy, monitoring, and law enforcement. After PM2.5, VOCs control has become another focus of air pollution prevention and control. In order to implement the VOCs governance tasks, my country has successively issued the "Action Plan for the Reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds in Key Industries" and the "Thirteenth Five-Year" Comprehensive Work Plan for Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction, etc.

After PM2.5, VOCs control has become another focus of air pollution prevention and control. In order to implement the VOCs governance task, China has issued the "key industries volatile organic compounds reduction action plan", "13th Five-Year" energy saving and emission reduction comprehensive work plan "and other documents, focusing on improving the national VOCs governance.

 

On April 21 this year, at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Environmental Protection in April, Tian Weiyong, director of the Environmental Supervision Bureau, said that the Ministry of Environmental Protection will take five measures to solve the problem of VOCs governance. First, it is necessary to strengthen source control and restrict the raw materials of various enterprises, that is, the use of low VOCs raw materials; second, from point to surface, first control and control industries with large VOCs emissions such as petrochemicals, organic chemicals, packaging and printing; Third, highlight the key points and focus on management and control from key parts; fourth, improve the level and efficiency of law enforcement; fifth, increase information disclosure and encourage active public participation, and form a virtuous circle of supervision and being supervised.

Since the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) was included in the total control index during the 13th Five-Year Plan period, local governments have attached great importance to the governance of VOCs, so what countermeasures have the provinces and cities come up?

Guangdong Province

In response to the "Thirteenth Five-Year" Comprehensive Work Plan for Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction, the Guangdong Provincial Environmental Protection Department drafted the "Thirteenth Five-Year" Work Plan for Emission Reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds in Guangdong Province (Draft for Comment). On the basis of the "Implementation Plan for Comprehensive Remediation of Volatile Organic Compounds in Key Industries in Guangdong Province (2014-2017)" issued at the beginning of last year, the Provincial Environmental Protection Department compiled the list of key VOCs supervision enterprises and implemented the "one enterprise, one policy" remediation strategy. Starting this year, Guangdong Province will be VOCs emissions in line with the total control requirements as a precondition for EIA approval, and into the emission permit management. As one of the country's 16 "13th Five-Year Plan" key areas for total volatile organic compound emissions control, by 2020, Guangdong will reduce VOCs emissions by 18% on the basis of 2015.

Shanghai

The latest news shows that the Shanghai Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau has just issued a notice on accelerating the review of industrial volatile organic compounds treatment projects and financial subsidies. The notice connects the relevant requirements of the "Shanghai Industrial Volatile Organic Compounds Treatment and Emission Reduction Plan" and the "Shanghai Industrial Volatile Organic Compounds Emission Reduction Enterprise Pollution Control Project Implementation Rules". The goal is to ensure that the existing VOCs control measures are as soon as possible. Play emission reduction benefits. The notice clearly stated that it is necessary to speed up the preliminary review of the completed VOCs governance project, accelerate the completion of the acceptance of on-site monitoring and online monitoring facilities, actively cooperate with the technical verification work, and strengthen the post-management of the completed governance project.

Wuxi, Jiangsu

The measures of Wuxi City for the implementation of the regulations on the Prevention and Control of Air pollution in Jiangsu Province, which came into effect on May 1, made detailed provisions on the treatment of volatile organic compounds, and then on May 7, relevant people from the city's Environmental Protection Bureau revealed that Wuxi will take more systematic, accurate and strict measures to control volatile organic pollution. According to the plan, Wuxi City is expected to complete 189 VOCs treatment projects in 2017, and a total of 473 projects will be arranged by 2020 to comprehensively reduce the total emission of volatile organic compounds. To this end, Wuxi City has launched a special action plan for "controlling volatilization", which clearly requires that the comprehensive treatment of VOCs in chemical parks and key enterprises be completed by the end of 2017. Relevant people also said that Wuxi will actively adjust industrial institutions and withdraw from a number of low-end inefficient production capacity.

Zhejiang Province

Around the theme of VOCs pollution control, Zhejiang Province has opened a new journey of controlling gas and reducing haze, and officially declared war on the "invisible killer" of the atmosphere. This year, Zhejiang Province will formulate air pollutant emission standards for shoemaking and industrial coating processes, and promote key industries such as petrochemical, chemical, coating and printing to reduce VOCs emissions by 42000 tons. By 2020, the province's VOCs emissions will be reduced by 20% on the existing basis. Moreover, VOCs sewage charges are gradually on the right track, the province will still grasp the industrial source VOCs governance, speed up the construction of monitoring system, increase supervision and law enforcement. Among them, Ningbo is known as the benchmark of VOCs governance in Zhejiang Province. This year, it plans to invest another 1.5 billion yuan to complete the governance of 350 enterprises.

Hubei Province

Local VOCs governance policies continue to fall, Hubei Province also followed the pace of VOCs reduction action, issued the "2017 Hubei Province Air Pollution Prevention and Control Work Implementation Plan." The document requires strict implementation of the "Action Plan for the Reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds in Key Industries" and the "Notice on Organizing the Implementation of the Action Plan for the Reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds in Key Industries", and the formulation and implementation of an annual work plan. The province will continue to carry out the comprehensive treatment of volatile organic compounds in petrochemical, chemical, industrial coating, packaging and printing industries, and put forward the implementation of industrial VOCs treatment in the province. At the same time, do a good job in eliminating backward production capacity, and urge the environmental protection relocation of heavy pollution enterprises.

From the general direction, China's VOCs governance has "bottom gas". From the small details, China's VOCs governance has the connotation. The atmosphere of VOCs governance across the country continues to improve, and governance actions around the country are promoted from many aspects such as policies, subsidies, monitoring, and law enforcement. Air pollution control, whether it is PM2.5 or VOCs, will eventually be the "blue sky defense war" victory "medal".
