By Think Real - On 12 Oct., 2016, the Yangzhou Government, Jiangsu Province, held an online talk show about the quality of air, which was participated by the local Vice Mayor and people from the Environmental Protection Bureau (the Bureau) as well as citizens. In the show, the City Government promised that Jiangsu Yangnong Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Yangnong, a listed domestic pesticide enterprise) be moved out of the downtown of Yangzhou by the end of 2018.
The Bureau answered questions asked by citizens about the relocation of Jiangsu Yangnong and said that the City Government has been supervising chemical producers like Jiangsu Yangnong. In detail, by daily examination, it presses the company to make its waste gas reach the discharge standards and deeply treat and reduce the discharge of its waste gas. At the same time, Jiangsu Yangnong has been upgrading and adjusting its products in recent years by shutting or relocating some pesticide projects with a lot of waste gas discharge and reducing the release of waste gas, which has contributed a lot in improving the environmental quality of the city.
To completely solve the pollution of waste gas by Jiangsu Yangnong, early in 2008, the City Government had listed the company as one that must exit the downtown and relocate into industrial parks. In Oct. 2013, it signed a deal with the company, specifying the finish time of the relocation, 2018. The City Government Office specially set up a leadership team to push forward the transformation and development of Jiangsu Yangnong to ensure the smooth relocation of it.
