China Adopts More Flexible Output Curbs to Battle Winter Smog
(Bloomberg) -- Northern China’s key industrial hub will adopt a more flexible program for its anti-pollution output curbs this winter, according to a plan released Thursday by the environment ministry.
The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area will eschew blanket cuts and take a differentiated approach to industries including steel, even as this year’s winter restrictions are likely to be expanded outside the region. A plan was announced in July to apply environmental measures to provinces in the Yangtze River Delta and Fenwei Plain areas, although no details have been released.
