I.Sharing of air pollution control strategies
PM10 Reduction Action Plan: A number of measures were taken to reduce PM10, including management of coal storage in Taichung Port, control of river dredging in Nantou and Pingtung, management of major construction sites in Miaoli and Tainan, improving operating agricultural machien in Chiayi, monitoring of river bed fugitive emission, management of exposed and dry fields in Yunlin.
Toluene Reduction Action Plans: Toluene plays an important role in the formation of ozone and aerosol. The concentration of toluene in Taiwan is much higher than other developed countries. Receptor models indicated that the emission of toluene is mainly from mobile sources and the use of solvents. This year a conference was held to demonstrate process characteristics and reduction technologies of tape industry, printing industry, PU synthetic leather, bicycle components, and automotive components surface treatment industry.
II.Control of petrochemical industry emissions
This year the control of petrochemical industry emissions focuses on 1. Further control of flare towers after the discovery of ozone increase due to the emission of ethylene and propylene; 2. The compilation of pollution map with FTIR monitoring in petrochemical industrial zones after the Chaoliu Incidence; 3. Tracing and reduction of HAPs emission after the promulgation of stationary HAPs standards and make suggestions to the adjustment of VOCs Standards accordingly.
III.Control of Stationary PM2.5 emission
This year the measures to control PM2.5 emission includes 1. Control of major firepower plants; 2. Control of small boilers; and 3. Tracing of compliances after the promulgation of Power Generation Facilities Emission Standards in 2014.
