The purpose of this project is to assist Bureau of PTEPB(Environmental Protection Ping Tung County) to administer the various programs time table, the content and methodology itself. By means of the aforementioned implementation, we are able to review on what has been finished over time to help EPA deal with AP(air pollution) agendas and minutes to boot, with a sole eye to the integration of the air quality improvement. Besides, the perspectives that the EPA are marching towards to better the air quality(a.k.a. AQ) should again be aligned with our schedule either long-term, mid-term, or short-term as a projection to the control of the AQ in the future.
Starting at Feb. 10, 2006, all executions as of Dec. 31, 2006 are as follows in brief:
I. The analysis of the AQ variation in PT County
The number of days which PT AQ reported poor accounts for 92 days in Pingtung, chaujou and Hengchuen area. With respect to the data analysis, PM10 , O3 accounts for 12 days and 80 days respectively. As opposed to the same period of time last year (2005), O3 declines by 11 days whereas PM10 declines by 16 days. In Yanjou, poor AQ days are 64, declines by 1 day as opposed to the same period of 2005. The target compound should be O3 for our reference to reinforce the controlling projects and take effective measures, and meanwhile boost up the ties among three counties, with a sole view again to fight the AQ.
II. AQ feedbacks and related operations
This operation is to implement forecast, reporting, and feedback. With the AQ exceeding 95 on the scale of PSI w.r.t. PM10 , or 85 on the scale of PSI w.r.t. O3 , or 100 on PSI w.r.t. KKP AQ areas, emails and messages are sent throughout all sites and feedback are supposed to be supervised, too.
From Mar. 1st, 2006 to Dec. 31st, KKP AQ areas were reported poor in 141 days, during which 44 days were actual live up to “bad” level. Out of poor AQ days reported mediocre accounted for 11. In total, poor AQ days are 55. From 141 days reported poor, we can see the feedback is more than 80%, overall rate is 87.16%. Out of the flawed causes are some negligible cases. That is, preventive controls should be tightened up.
III. Subprojects schedule reviews and controls
The AQ improving plan has 14 subprojects in 2006, including three parts of Stationary Sources, mobile source and emission sources management. The reduction goals of pollutants were 1,080 tons of TSP, 4 tons of SOx, 6 tons of NOx and 150 tons of non-methal-hydrocarbonates (NMHC). The actual reduction of PM reaches to 1,449.05 in ton, sulfates 4.34 in ton, while NOx and NMHC are 189.57, which already measure up to 134.17%、108.50%、137.50%, and 126.38%, respectively. All make the purpose.
IV. Adjust the Air pollution control proposal of Pingtung County
We are in charge to executive of Air Quality Manage Project (AQMP). Studying the control strategy and assemble every subproject to archive their goals that including proposal amendment. In compliance to the Central government’s stipulation and contingencies, our air pollution control program reviews will focus on the collaboration between the 2 parties. Additionally, we should be well-prepared to cope with drastically unprecedented measures to upgrade the rate 3rd restricted area to the 2nd restricted area.
V. Analysis the intensity and pollutant emission variety
In Pingtung County, The TSP was mainly contributed by those sources that including Stationary Sources, gravel heap sites, construction sites and open burning. SOx and NOx were mainly contributed by Stationary Sources, open burning and mobile sources, and NMHC by Stationary Sources, mobile sources, open burning and gasoline station. According to the practical execution in each subproject of those sources, we estimated the emission quantity were that 7,606.13 tons of TSP, 347.02 tons of SOx, 572 tons of NOx and 1,134.48 tons of NMHC from Jan. to Dec. in 2006. In respect of mobile sources, we used the mobile bike quantity in Pingtung County that provided from Department of Statistics, Ministry of Transportation and Communications instead. The result showed out that 2006’s grows rate were 2.27% with 2005. That also causes the augmentation of SOx, NOx and NMHC. So we suggest to continuing the mobile bikes management that combined feature tourism sources as the main issue in the future.
VI. Planning the Air Pollution Fee Promote Project in 2007
We have reference the principle execution of EPA to scheme on the Air Quality Improving project of Pingtung County in 2007. That including Air Pollution Fee Foundation arrangement of Construction Site Manage Project, Diesel Vehicles Inspecting Project, Street Emission Sources Cleaning Project, Air Quality Management and Development Project, Maintain Project of Air Quality Inspection Station. We also hand out the subsidy request that including several project of Stationary Sources, Mobile Sources and Construction sites and Open Bunning etc.
