China – Xi’an city authorities seek solutions for air pollution problems
Air pollution is a significant problem in Xi’an and the city was recently identified as having one of the lowest air quality levels in China. Xi’an’s local government responded to this by introducing a number of measures. They have established 13 monitor stations across Xi’an for a number of different indexes including AQI, PM2.5, PM10, CO, NO2, O3, SO2. In addition, they have started spraying water on roads and covering naked soil at construction sites with plastic cloth. The local government has also begun providing local residents with daily guidance and advice.
Xi’an’s local government is now seeking foreign environmental technology firms and other providers of air pollution solutions to assist them in tackling the city’s air quality issues.
Specific tasks that need doing include:
Installing exhaust purifiers on vehicles to reduce exhaust gas emissions
Providing technology for tail gas treatment at coal-fired power generation stations and coal heating stations
Solving gas retrieval issues
Xi’an’s municipal government is also seeking new technology and innovations to improve the air quality of the city.
