Wastewater treatment In China

Wastewater treatment In China

Water pollution is just one of the environmental challenges facing China’s policy makers. According to statistics , around 32.5% of China’s 7 major river systems and 29.2% of China’s major basins do not meet the prevailing water quality standards (grade III and below) in 2015. Municipal wastewater treatment is typically undertaken by local governments, especially in the urban areas. Industrial wastewater treatment, on the other hand, is often done in-factory or in centralized treatment facilities located within industrial parks. the graph shows the wastewater treatment volume, capacity and cost.

China’s 13th Five Year Plan & the Wastewater Treatment Industry

China’s 13th Five Year Plan & the Wastewater Treatment Industry

 

Background

The fact that China’s rapid social and economic development is resulting in the degradation of the ecological environment is not news anymore. Water pollution is just one of the environmental challenges facing China’s policy makers. Just how serious is the problem? According to statistics from the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), around 32.5% of China’s 7 major river systems and 29.2% of China’s major basins do not meet the prevailing water quality standards (grade III and below) in 2015.

 This has been largely due to the long history of unfettered emission of untreated/under-treated industrial, agriculture as well as domestic wastewater into these water bodies. Not only this, investments in wastewater treatment facilities have been both lacking and lagging behind. In the 12th Five Year Plan (FYP) period, investments into treating wastewater have decreased, even as investments into cleaning up industrial air emission have increased substantially (see figure 1 below).

Biodegradable Plastics Market in China - Ready to Take the Next Step?

This article is based on a GCiS multi-client market research report: China Biodegradable Plastics Market Research Report.

China’s Green Revolution

 According to GCiS China Strategic Research, 135,000 tons of bio-plastics were sold in the China market in 2016. Largely driven by regulatory mandates in environmental protection, the bio-plastics market is expected to continue growing over the next 5 years. Following the State Council’s ‘Order to Limit Plastics’ in 2007, Jilin and Jiangsu have gone further to implement a ‘No Plastics Order’ in 2015 and 2017 respectively. The latter order bans the production and sale of disposable plastic bags or tableware made using non-biodegradable materials. Local Jilin officials are also made accountable as their annual performance review will incorporate performance indicators related to the implementation of the order.
