The hottest water treatment aims at pollution disc

  • Detail

Water treatment aims at pollution discharge licenses. Ten industries such as papermaking and printing and dyeing have been licensed to discharge pollutants. On the 20th, the Ministry of environmental protection learned that China will issue pollution discharge licenses for ten water related industries, including papermaking and printing and dyeing, and build a national pollution discharge license management information platform by the end of this year. By 2020, China will basically complete the issuance of emission permits. The pollutant discharge permit will also become the "ID card" that every pollutant discharge unit must hold

Zhang Bo, director of the Department of water environment management of the Ministry of environmental protection, told that there are ten key industries in the field of water related pollution discharge permits. Because there are many water related industries, the Ministry of environmental protection will drive other industries to gradually be included in the sewage discharge permit system through the breakthrough of this key ten industries

the pollutant discharge permit system is a relatively mature basic system widely adopted internationally, which implements "process management" and "one certificate" supervision over fixed pollution sources throughout their life cycle

in January 2015, China implemented the pollutant discharge permit system nationwide for the first time. In January 2016, the Ministry of environmental protection set up a leading group for the implementation of pollutant discharge permits, which consists of three working groups, namely, the comprehensive group, the atmosphere group and the water group, to comprehensively start the reform of the pollutant discharge permit system. In November 2016, the State Council Office issued the implementation plan of the pollutant emission control permit system, which proposed that the full coverage of fixed pollution sources would be achieved step by step according to the industry, and the issuance of pollutant emission permits would be basically completed nationwide by 2020. On January 5 this year, the Ministry of environmental protection issued the Interim Provisions on the administration of permits promised by large groups of polluters, which has also become the first normative document for the administration of pollutant discharge permits in the country. At the beginning of this year, Chen Jining, Minister of environmental protection, pointed out in the deployment of this year's key work at the national environmental protection work conference that the implementation of the pollutant discharge permit system will be accelerated and a simplified and efficient fixed source environmental management system with pollutant discharge permit as the core will be formed as soon as possible. By June 30 this year, we will complete the application and issuance of emission permits for enterprises in the thermal power and paper industries, and carry out environmental supervision and law enforcement according to the permits. By the end of 2017, we will complete the issuance of emission permits for enterprises in key industries and industries with overcapacity under the ten articles on atmosphere and water. We will promote the pilot project of emissions trading for elevated sources in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei. In recent 20 years, according to the implementation plan of pollutant emission control permit system, all pollutant discharge units can only have legal pollutant discharge certificates on the premise of obtaining pollutant discharge permits. Enterprises and institutions should apply for the pollutant discharge permit in time, promise to discharge pollutants in accordance with the provisions of the permit and strictly implement it. At the same time, they should strengthen self-monitoring, self disclosure, and consciously accept supervision. If the discharge situation is inconsistent with the requirements of the pollutant discharge permit, they should report to the environmental protection department in time

"pollutant discharge permit is a key link to promote the close connection and effective coordination between total amount control and quality improvement." Chen Jining, Minister of environmental protection, once wrote in the "economy" that the pollutant discharge license after the reform is the "ID card" that every pollutant discharge unit must hold, the only administrative license for enterprises and institutions to discharge pollutants during production and operation, and the basic basis for pollutant discharge units to abide by the law, law enforcement units to enforce the law, and social supervision and protection of the law

in fact, the emission permit system will also become the core system of environmental governance in China

Zhao Yingmin, Vice Minister of the Ministry of environmental protection, previously revealed that during the "13th five year plan", China will gradually simplify the environmental assessment system and determine the core system of emission permits

"the pollutant discharge permit system is a core system of our fixed pollution source management. This year, we will also improve and straighten out the standard system, so that the pollutant discharge permit can form a good coordination with the river basin standards and industrial standards. The ultimate goal is to establish a fixed source emission control mechanism that is connected with the river basin water environment quality improvement goal." Zhang Bo said

The specific cooperation measures mentioned by Zhang Bo include: Taking the revision of the water pollution prevention and control law as an opportunity to improve the standard and specification system. Organize the formulation of comprehensive discharge standards for water pollutants in key river basins. Formulate technical policies for the prevention and control of ship pollution. Standardize the environmental management of sewage discharge projects. In addition, in terms of optimizing the layout of industries along the Yangtze River economic belt, the construction of heavy chemical industry parks will be strictly prohibited within 1 km of the main stream and the main tributary coastline, and the construction of petrochemical and coal chemical projects will be strictly controlled in the middle and upper reaches of the coastal areas

industry experts pointed out that the emission permit is the total emission based on the production capacity. No matter how the production capacity changes in the future, the total emission can only decrease. The step-by-step implementation of pollutant discharge permits to full coverage will, on the one hand, improve the supervision of pollution discharge, on the other hand, will also urge the technological innovation of treatment enterprises. Strict pollution control will activate the large market of environmental protection industry at the level of 100 billion yuan
