Further Efforts in Beijing to Reduce Smog

Beijing will move 300 companies out of the city before October in continued efforts to reduce smog and increase industrial reform in the capital and throughout China. These specific companies are shown to have high energy and water consumption. “These factories and companies will be relocated in nearby cities or regions after technology upgrading and product restructuring,” said Zhang Boxu, director of the Beijing Commission of Economy and Information Technology. These moves are in addition to several hundred other companies that were relocated from Beijing in 2013, which helped the city to cut sulfur dioxide emissions by 7,000 tons.

Authorities in Beijing are also working on additional guidelines and reforms, especially for illegal plants that are causing pollution. Officials are working on more environmentally friendly facilities and technology, as well as aiming to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 400,000 tons, sulfur dioxide emissions by 9,000 tons and dust by 10,000 tons annually in Beijing.
