The northern Chinese city of Tangshan, which is known as a center for the manufacturing of steel, has implemented production curbs in an effort to clean up the air in the city in advance of some important political gatherings taking place in the country.
According to a statement that was posted on the website of the local government on Saturday, a so-called level-two emergency response will begin on Sunday, when the city of Tangshan, which is located approximately 150 kilometers (93 miles) east of Beijing, anticipates medium or heavy levels of air pollution.
According to what it claimed, industrial producers are required to follow applicable recommendations for lowering emissions. Companies that have received an A rating in environmental performance reviews are allowed to make their own decisions regarding the reduction of emissions, while those that are on a “white list” of oversight are not required to limit production. The statement did not provide a list of any businesses.
