more than one thousand heavy metals polluting enterprises are shut in the past two years in China (part 2)

If any enterprises fail to meet requirements of environmental protection on heavy metal, the production will be suspended for rectification, even the enterprises will be totally closed.

And if any heavy metal pollution incident happens, the related local government will shuffer the administrative punishment, such as regional restrictions, interviews and  responsibility investigation. 

All these policies and meansurements are expected to cease the serious trend of heavy metal pollution incidents. And in fact, China will spend 75 billion yuan ($11.15 billion) to curb heavy metal pollution in five years from 2011.

The vice minister of Ministry of Environmental Protection, Wu Xiaoqing pointed out that in recent years, more than one thousand enterprises which cause  heavy metal pollution are closed in China.

He said that the heavy metal pollution incidents in China in recent years occurred in succession. These are serious threats to the people's physical and mental health. These pollution incidents also affect the social stability. 

Thus China feel serious on this issue, and released a series of policy measures in order to the comprehensive improvement of heavy metal pollution. Ministry of environmental protection has continuous carried out special actions to focus on environmental protection, cracking down on metal illegal enterprise for three years. 

Green & Eco-friendly in LinkedIn

To promote green & eco-friendly in the world, to share and discuss with everyone who is interested in green and eco-friendly, we have build one group in LinkedIn:  Green & Eco-friendly.

At the moment, Lotfi M'Rad and I are co-ower and doing something on this group. There are several hundred members now for this green & eco-friendly group. But we hope more and more people can participate and join this group. Because Lotfi M'Rad and I, and almost every members of this group know, only if more and more people do something in their daily life for green & eco-friendly, our planet can be better.

So we sincerely hope you can join this group and share your thoughts on this matter!

Research into batteries will give electric cars the same range as petrol cars

i-air batteries are a promising opportunity for electric cars. "If we succeed in developing this technology, we are facing the ultimate breakthrough for electric cars, because in practice, the energy density of Li-air batteries will be comparable to that of petrol and diesel, if you take into account that a combustion engine only has an efficiency of around 30 percent," says Tejs Vegge, senior scientist in the Materials Research Division at Risø DTU.
 

Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink (part 2)

In rural Finland there are over a thousand water cooperatives serving farm businesses and villages. Whilst licensed by the government and allotted a limit to the amount of water they can extract, the cooperatives have complete control over price. This means they can offer favourable rates to their members because their decision is not influenced by fluctuations of the market. The Finnish water cooperatives also have the network benefits of other partnering with other regional associations. If for instance the water quality in one area is not sufficient, due to extenuating natural circumstances, the cooperative may buy water from a neighbouring cooperative-owned water network, thus ensuring continued low prices and supply dependency.

Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink (part 1)

the human body weight, needs to be topped up on a regular basis and we cannot go without it for more than about week. As well as drinking it, we also use water for cooking and sanitation, not to mention industrial processes. Yet despite water being essential to our survival, more often than not in the West, we treat it with distain. A fact reflected in its low price (compared to petrol or electricity -- things we may be addicted to but can live without?) and how the developed world fritters it away (you may leave the kitchen tap running into an unplugged sink at home but you would not pour petrol from the station pump down the drain, right?).

What makes matters worse in terms of our taking water for granted, is that despite 70% of the Earth’s surface being covered by water, only 2.5% of the total volume is freshwater resources and fit for human consumption. Coupled with the facts from the WBCSD and FAO that in 60% of European cities with more than 100,000 people, groundwater is being used at a faster rate than it can be replenished, by 2025, 1,800 million people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two thirds of the world population could be under stress conditions.
