Opinions about the development of the environmental protection industry during the 12th FYP period

June 20th, 2011 by

In the conference proceedings of the 12th International Environmental Protection Exhibition and Conference which occurred earlier this month, there was included a very nice analysis of China’s 12th Five Year Plan (2011-2015) as it relates to the environmental protection industry, written by the  China Association of Environmental Protection Industry (CAEPI).  It includes some history on the environmental protection industry in China, future trends for development, and most importantly China’s environmental industry development within the context of the 12th Five Year Plan, which is a policy guidance document which sets the goals for the next five years for the country.

6 Main Task Areas for the environment are identified in the analysis. In order, they are:

  1. Water Pollution Prevention and Treatment
  2. Air Pollution Prevention and Treatment
  3. Solid Waste Treatment and Disposal
  4. Noise and Vibration Control
  5. Environmental Monitoring
  6. Environmental Services Industry
