The plan is implemented from Jane 1, 2021 to Dec 31, 2021. Attempt to improve the air quality in Hsinchu City for fitting legal standards and hoping to get achieved good performance in the Environmental Protection Administration’s assessment. On the other hand, it needs to stay on top of environmental loading, the data of pollution emission, analyzing the result of detecting air quality and crosstalk the reason of the causing incident. To plan as a whole source from others efficiently, the duty of monitor and boosting the except goal.
As of Oct 2021, analyzing station location by The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA): the proportion of AQI>100 (air quality index) demonstrates better and better recently. In the days of poor air quality (AQI>100), O3 accounts for the largest proportion, O3 means the major cause of poor air quality. Otherwise, the average of PM2.5 also gets better (13.3µg/m3) even reach the stander (15µg/m3) first time in 2020. The average of PM2.5 is 13.9 μg/m3 until Dec 2021. The average concentration in three years will reach below 15 μg/m3 from 2022 to reach the standard for class II air pollution control regions. The average of air contaminants in 2021 all fit legal standards except for O3-8hr.
Statistics to Oct 2021, the response measures: As on poor air quality, ensemble other sub-projects which are belonged preventing air pollution to suppress poorer continually. Then collate the result of decreasing amount and upload the EPA system of response to air pollution. It has responded 22 times to air pollution. The major target of air pollutions is PM2.5 and O3. Moreover, Feb is severest so far. As the situation attains AQI>100 and AQI>150, to make sure the manufactures cut down the emission of factories. At the same time, connect other departments by the cross-over group and through the media just like Facebook, news ticker, and website, to announce the information. Let people know the poor air quality news at the first moment and protect themselves.
According to contents to the briefing of the air pollution control plan from 2020 to 2023, conducted by the EPA on June 1, 2020. Based on the current state of environmental pollution, completed Hsinchu City air pollution control plan. The plan has been 34 preventive measures, it also assists Environmental Protection Bureau (EPB) to promote preventive measures later. To stay on top of each project is on schedule, check the execution progress routinely every month. To confirm the table of progress which donned based on work items, assessment indicators from EPA, and air pollution control plan measures. Until now, it has been executed 10 times (because of Covid-19, it was inspected online in May and Jun). To establish the project’s overall control directions, the following activities would be additionally conducted during the period of the project to enhance the working performances and execution qualities of every project: 9 times internal work review meetings and 1 effectiveness review meeting in Oct, 1 seminar on air quality composed of Hsinchu County, Hsinchu City, and Miaoli County, and 1 air pollution fund committee meeting, 1 improving decreasing air pollution meeting of Hsinchu City and 2 reconnaissance of environmental experts. The purpose of these meetings is to accelerate productivity and work efficiency on each plan.
On motivating the adoption and dissemination of air quality purification regional, 6 air quality purification regionals have already been adopted by the companies that formed in Hsinchu Science Park or in Hsinchu City. Furthermore, it assists 2 companies to participate in the audition and win the the high distinction award finally. We also host an event of cleaning. Another point thing to know, it completed air quality purification regional inspection in a half year and renewed data of carbon credit in Nanya environmental protection park. The following section of greening is “setting green wall”. It is another point for improving greening. It assists elementary and junior high schools which fit qualifications apply for the fund from EPA. HSIN KE junior high school has closed the case and completed the 83 m3 field. The other is Da Chung elementary school that is under construction and looks forward to finishing the 60m3 field this year. In addition, it also holds the creative writing competition of quality purification regionals. To know more about quality purification regionals for children by the writing competition. It can also cultivate observation into nature, improve environmental education, advocate bookish charm and trend of creative writing.
Disseminating to the public, hosted 2 events of maintaining and promoting air quality which aims to propagate air quality, air quality flag, and the information about quality purification regionals. To enhance the knowledge of air quality for people. Moreover, we cooperate with Taiwan Medical recording the video by doctors as speakers. The videos publicize the concept of air quality on television, Facebook, and YouTube.
Association to maintaining equipment in 3 station locations and putting receive samples is routine work every month. To make sure equipment is exact and send the flow meter to calibrate on 26 Mar.2021.It has done 24 times putting receiving samples, 12 times water collected dust, 8 times one point regulated, and 4 times several points regulated from this year. We detected hazardous air pollutants seasonal in Oct and Nov 2021. The detecting result of harmful materials in the air all are conformed with the standard.
In the other matter of management air quality: assist to purchase informational materials refer to the contract, renewed website and submit a News release. It has updated the information 10 times on the website and assisted other plans also. News has released on the website of EPB on 6 Feb,19 Feb, 17 Mar, 6 Apr,26 Aug, and 7 Oct this year.
