Asia Hazardous Waste Treatment Congress 2018 Event Background
Illegal transfer and dumping hazardous waste occured frequently in many places recently,because environmental supervision has been continuously strengthened and environmental taxes have been collected. Some companies transfer hazardous waste illegally quietly to avoid punishment and reduce costs,in addition,the capacity of hazardous waste treatment is insufficient, the construction of local hazardous waste disposal capacity needs to be strengthened.
China's Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) launched a targeted crackdown on solid waste pollution following frequent cases of the illegal disposal of harmful materials in several regions. From May 9 to the end of June, the MEE will send 150 teams to regions in the Yangtze River economic belt to inspect the illegal discharge of solid waste.If local authorities find any illegal activities, they will be ordered to clear up solid waste, curb environment risks and find out the sources of the waste.The move came after several cases of illegal solid-waste dumping in areas including Guangxi, Henan and Anhui, which caused harm to the local environments.The MEE made public seven cases of illegal disposal of solid waste in Anhui, Hunan and Chongqing.Tackling pollution is one of the "three tough battles" China aims to win over the next three years.
Starting Jan. 1, 2018, China introduced a new tax -- the environment protection tax ¨C aimed at protecting the environment and cutting pollutant discharge.Companies and public institutions that discharge listed pollutants directly into the environment will pay taxes for producing noise, air and water pollutants as well as solid waste.
China¡¯s Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) held talks on May 11 with seven municipal governments, urging them to take actions against illegal disposal of solid waste.The ministry named and shamed Guangzhou, Jiangmen,Dongguan, Lianyungang, Yancheng, Baotou and Wenling for not doing enough to prevent solid waste pollution.In the case of Guangzhou,the city has failed to properly respond to public complaints, leading to frequent cases of illegal dumping of solid waste and harmful materials, according to the MEE.The watchdog required local authorities to correct the problems, punish those responsible for the pollution and foster a long-term mechanism to address the issue.
