Since late 2016, the Chinese government has conducted a series of environmental inspections of production companies. These inspections have typically led to short-term closures of a large share of plants. A report by the Ministry of Environment stated that 70% of all companies inspected failed to meet the standards for controlling air pollution. However, most of them were allowed to restart production after reducing their emissions.

Stricter Environmental Regulation Impacts Specialty Chemicals Production

Wuhan Carnoss Technology Co., LTD.:Since late 2016, the Chinese government has conducted a series of environmental inspections of production companies. These inspections have typically led to short-term closures of a large share of plants. A report by the Ministry of Environment stated that 70% of all companies inspected failed to meet the standards for controlling air pollution. However, most of them were allowed to restart production after reducing their emissions.
   

Compared to previous government actions, these inspections are much stricter and conducted on a larger scale. They are an indication of much tighter implementation of environmental regulation at a time when the regulations themselves are also tightening. Since January 2017, a number of government agencies, including the State Council and the Ministry of Environment have issued several policies mandating reduced energy consumption, lower carbon emissions and stricter pollution control.Wuhan Carnoss Technology Co., LTD.- And the government puts a strong emphasis on implementation of these new regulations. For example, in Oct. 2017, 69 Hebei government officials were dismissed for failing to implement pollution controls, and an additional 154 officials were handed over to police for investigation. Similarly, changing the previous emission fee to an emission tax has shifted authority from local governments – which frequently favor local economic activity over the environment – to central tax authorities.

Consequences for Chemical Producers

As China’s president Xi Jinping has made reduction of environmental pollution one of his three top priorities for China, these developments are not likely to be reversed, even though some Chinese experts estimate that the campaign has decreased GDP growth in 2017 by 0.2%. It is therefore worthwhile for companies with chemical production in China – and for those doing business with them – to examine their direct and indirect consequences.
