China's top steel city Tangshan summons 48 firms over air pollution

2019-06-18 15:12:22  【Print】
China's top steelmaking city of Tangshan has summoned executives from 48 regional companies with high pollution emissions to a meeting and ordered them to trim output to reduce the smog.

The companies in the steel, cement and coke industries were criticized by the city government of failing to implement anti-pollution measures and to bring down toxic emissions, according to a statement issued by the Tangshan city government on June 17. The companies included Tangsteel, a subsidiary of HBIS Group.

The meeting came after China's environment ministry last week summoned the mayors of six northern Chinese cities, including Baoding and Langfang in Hebei province where Tangshan is located, that failed to meet winter smog-cutting targets to a meeting in Beijing.

The city has extended output curbs on heavy industry to the end of June, with steel mills ordered to cut sintering operations by as much as 50%.

Despite the extended production restrictions on heavy industry, Tangshan in April still ranked fourth from the bottom of 169 monitored key cities nationwide in terms of air quality, according to the latest data from the environment ministry.

In May, among the 11 cities in Hebei, Tangshan had the worst air quality level, with average concentrations of particulate matter measuring less than 2.5 microns, known as PM2.Asian Metal Copyright Despite the extended production restrictions on heavy industry, Tangshan in April still ranked fourth from the bottom of 169 monitored key cities nationwide in terms of air quality, according to the latest data from the environment ministry.Asian Metal Copyright5, at 43 micrograms per cubic meter, data from Hebei environmental bureau showed on June 10.Asian Metal Copyright .Asian Metal Copyright The average PM2.Asian Metal Copyright The meeting came after China's environment ministry last week summoned the mayors of six northern Chinese cities, including Baoding and Langfang in Hebei province where Tangshan is located, that failed to meet winter smog-cutting targets to a meeting in Beijing.Asian Metal Copyright5 reading in Hebei in May was 32 micrograms per cubic meter.
