This year is the fifth year since the implementation of the “Atmosphere Ten”, and it is also the year of the end of the “Atmosphere Ten” and the year of assessment. On November 29th, the blue sky and white clouds called for a long-term “governance of gas” theme seminar. Participants agreed that the goal of “Atmosphere Ten” was basically completed. It is recommended to release the second phase of the “Atmosphere Ten” enhanced version to do top-level design. It is worth noting that green transportation and loose coal management have received considerable attention in the past two years and are regarded as the continuing focus of the next atmospheric action.
“In the past few years, combined with the structural reform of the supply side, a large number of pollution-inefficient production capacity has been removed, and the load intensity of the pollution source has been greatly reduced. At the same time, many key cities have increased the emission standards of motor vehicles. The most remarkable cooperation mechanism is Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, which has made remarkable progress.” Zou Wei, president of the Energy Foundation Beijing Office, said that under this situation, breakthroughs have been made in air quality control, and PM2.5 and sulfur dioxide in most areas. The concentration of pollutants such as nitrogen oxides generally decreased significantly, and the number of days of heavy pollution was also significantly reduced.
Yang Jintian, former deputy chief engineer and director of the Atmospheric Department of the Environmental Planning Research Institute of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, agrees that “in general, the goal of the “Atmosphere Ten” is basically completed. From this year to the present In terms of the situation, the national average PM10 and PM2.5 reached 47 μg/m3 and 82 μg/m3, achieving a decline of more than 30%.”
However, the air pollution situation is still grim. Zou Yu called on the relevant government departments to issue the second and enhanced editions of the “Atmosphere Ten” to establish more strict and ambitious goals. By 2025, strive to allow 70% of the cities to meet the current national air quality standards. By 2030, all key cities will meet the current national air quality standards.
Yang Jintian believes that several key points should be considered in design. First, we must do a good job in the top-level design of the atmospheric environment quality management system, comprehensively promote the city’s compliance management, and propose a comprehensive strategy to solve the problem. Secondly, it is a long-term process to treat both the symptoms and the root causes, and the air pollution control is to be considered in the long-term process of solving the current heavy pollution. Once again, classify the policy, highlight the key points, and do not grab the eyebrows and beards. Finally, synergy and strict enforcement.
