In current of the principle for stationary pollution source control to improve air quality and preventive management, in conjunction with the amendment of Air Pollution Control Act and Stationary Pollution Source Installation, Operating and Fuel Use Permit Management Regulations Amended Clauses, this project divided into 4 major parts in accordance with reducing testing quantity, improving testing data quality and application. The 4 part are 1) Review and modify stationary pollution sources regular testing system, 2) Formulate of establishing stationary pollution sources localized air pollutant emission coefficient system, 3) Review of official fees for stationary pollution sources permit management system collection rationality, 4) Expansion of stationary pollution sources testing and reporting system functions and other application services. This project has been implemented for 8 months and about 100% of this project was completed. The summaries of each part were as follows.
The domestic stationary pollution sources regular testing management system has been implemented for many years. In view of the fact that the amount of testing is so large that the testing volume supply, testing data insufficient of credibility and application, the goal of this project are to improve the regular testing control strategy and the quality of test data, thus, this project collected domestic and international stationary pollution sources regular testing system, and review past common problem from local authorities for amending the stationary sources regular testing management regulation. In order to reduce unnecessary regular testing, strengthen the representative of regular testing and effective management of regular testing, this project proposed the revision of the testing management system.
Based on Stationary Pollution Source Installation, Operating and Fuel Use Permit Management Regulations Amended Clauses, which was amended last year, the categories of air pollutants during testing has been limited, or only for verifying emission standards. Thus, the amount of trial operation testing has been reduced about 40.6%. In order to strengthen the representative of trial operation , we suggests to strengthen onsite inspection by the air pollution control dedicated person and the reviewing agency, and revises the stationary pollution source permit management regulations amended clauses and the related regulations at the same time.
This project prioritizes reviewing of stationary pollution sources regular testing management system which extends to two levels regular testing management. The first level maintains the original public and private premises for self-management, and provides test frequency adjustment specifications for self-managed public and private premises to reduce the number of tests by about 45%. Simultaneously, public and private premises should follow the air pollution emission test plan which be submitted before the regular testing and the air pollution control dedicated person should perform supervision and check operating conditions during testing, so as to enhance the representativeness of the test and encourage maintenance of public and private places to be more reliable.
In the second layer, a functional test appraisal system which implemented by county or city competent authority. The public and private premises and the competent authority can coordinate time and the operating conditions of the functional test appraisal. The results of functional test appraisal can be applied to verify the public and private premises self-management, also solve the problem of inspection and appraisals the air pollutant emissions by the competent authority, and at the same time extend test data application for reviewing the localized air pollutant emission coefficient. However, the regular testing system should follow the environmental testing law revised by the Environmental Analysis Laboratory in the future, with a third-party testing system, we expect the credibility of regular testing can be promoted.
This project reviews the first and second batch of regular testing announcement conditions. To integrate the current regulations of the regular testing of specific industry emission standards, which announced by Article 22 of the Air Pollution Control Act., as the third batch of regular testing announcement, so the regular testing system can be more efficient. On the other hand, this project also implemented the supervision test verification operation, and discussed the adjustment of the testing system according to the actual implementation status. We also held supervision testing personnel education and training course, assisting the environmental protection agency reviewers to familiarize the on-site testing process and improve the ability to supervise testing and other administrative operations.
In addition, according to the development of environmental protection in our country, air pollutant emissions are assigned different control targets and calculation methods in different regulations. Refer to U.S. emission management system and emission factor integration experience, we establish domestic stationary pollution sources emission management system in order to formulate the basis on the management of various emissions consistent and set pollution reduction targets precisely. We also establish a consistent measurement basis of stationary pollution sources to improve air pollutant estimation system. For reviewing domestic stationary pollution sources emission management system, this project also drafted a standard operating procedures for creating and reviewing the stationary pollution sources localized emission factors.
In order to utilize administrative resources effectively, based on the amendments to the stationary pollution sources permit management system and the regulations of the Ministry of Finance's Fees Law, this project evaluated various existing fees. According to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, we recommended to maintain the status of origin charge terms and only added new charge terms for the amendments of stationary pollution source permit management regulations amended clauses, which is class 3 stationary pollution source and trials. Besides, this project referred to the principles of domestic and international commission testing fee and considered the revenue problem of competent authority, we recommended the regular testing commission fees should not be collected by competent authority.
Following Air Pollution Control Act and its sub-law amendments and requires of implementation system, this project expands and repairs the functions of stationary pollution sources management information system, which includes trial operation reporting, review of resumption trial operation reporting, fuel reporting system, and the application and reviewing system of the public and private premises dedicated units or the air pollution control dedicated person, and also provides test data to cross-office by interfacing. In addition, we updated the function of the stationary pollution sources management information network system, maintained AAccessibility and the stationary pollution sources of information disclosure management platform operations for the requirements of information security audit operations with computer point scanning, computer security protection testing, core information system internet penetration testing and other operations.
