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.

90% enterprises of Lead-acid battery recycling industry in China are not qualified

It's said by one expert in China that in the industry of lead-acid batteries recycling, from the recycling to the dismantling, and then to the production of lead, each step is pollution! Much lead-acid battery recycling in China is illegal.

Statistics show that about 300 companies are engaged in the field of regenerated lead  in China (many of them are in the field of lead-acid battery recycling). But half of these companies are without legal operation, without legal documents from the government. The investment of these illegal companies are as low as RMB50,000.00 (about US$7,640.00) to RMB100,000.00 (about 15,267.00). More than half of China's lead contamination comes from these outdated lead-acid battery recycling enterprises. In fact 90 per cent enterprises in the industry of lead-acid battery recycling in China are not qualified.

Tianjin Eco-city Cleantech Focus (part 1)

Tianjin is on fire.

At the center of the blaze is the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City (SSTEC), a joint-venture between Singapore and China, which aims to herald a new era of sustainable urban development. The eco-city is part of a long-term goal to transform a 30-square-kilometer piece of previously underutilized urban land into a fully-functional urban enclave, and to spark the movement in China to ‘green' its rampant industrialization.

China's Hydropower Push in the 12th Five-Year Program period (2011-2015) (part 6)

Another source of resistance of the hydropower developmen comes from population displacement. In the past, half of hydropower development costs were incurred due to the displacement of residents, and many displaced migrants return after development begins. Construction costs for a hydropower plant is 40 percent higher than a fossil fuel power plant, resulting the concerns on the worth of hydropower. The most remarkable exmaple is Three Gorges hydro project too.

But for Chinese local governments, hydroelectric development is a way to displace impoverished populations and reduce a county's financial burden.
