国务院加强大气污染监测 - The State Council is strengthening the monitoring of air pollution print version

level 2

Within a few months, a new term - PM2.5 suddenly became well known for every Chinese and is constantly discussed by the Chinese press. PM2.5 - Fine Particle Designations, signifies the monitoring of air pollution. It is becoming the indicator of pollution and an important concept in a new national objective.


海通证券(Haitong Securities, a Shanghai based financial security company)认为本次会议有两大看点,一是"十二五"[8]期间推进PM2.5监测,二是电力[9]、钢铁[10]、石化[11]、水泥[12]行业的二氧化硫[13]、氮氧化物[14]治理。

估算当前PM2.5监测仪器[15]总需求为4亿元,从2012年算到2015年,年均[16]PM2.5监测仪器需求1亿元。估算国家重点监测的电力、钢铁、石化、水泥行业企业总数在3000家以上需求为45亿元,从2012年算到2015年,年均CEMS(Continuous Emissions Monitors)需求11.25亿元。

On February 29, the State Council premier, Wen Jiabao, directed a routine conference of the State Council, announcing the newly revised "Quality standards for the air (pollution)". This strengthens the prevention and treatment of air pollution. The new 'standards' raise the monitored limit for PM2.5 and O3 in 8-hours readings.

Haitong Securities (a Shanghai based financial security company) believes that this conference has two significant points: One is advancement of PM2.5 supervision during the '12th Five Year Plan' and second is the administration of oxidized sulfur and nitrogen in electric power and in the industries of iron, petrochemicals and cement.

It is calculated that at present the equipment for PM2.5 monitoring requires a budget of ¥400 million (¥100 million shall be spent annually during 2012-2015). Inspection of over 3000 factories in the electric power, iron, petrochemicals and cement industries requires ¥4.5 billion for CEMS(Continuous Emissions Monitors) (¥1.125 billion shall be spent annually during 2012-2015).
