China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA - ZHENG JINRAN

In ad­di­tion to reg­u­lar con­trols on pro­duc­tion and ve­hi­cle use, some cities have tight­ened re­stric­tions to re­duce emis­sions of air­borne pol­lu­tants.

In 10 cities in Shanxi prov­ince, in­clud­ing the pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal Taiyuan, all plants in min­ing, sand ex­ca­va­tion, pro­cess­ing of stones and as­phalt mix­ing in­dus­tries were re­quired to sus­pend pro­duc­tion from Dec 1 to 4.

In Lang­fang, He­bei prov­ince, all cast­ing fac­to­ries and ce­ment-mak­ing plants (ex­cept those pro­vid­ing heat­ing ser­vices for res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ties) are re­quired to sus­pend pro­duc­tion in De­cem­ber.

In Shi­ji­azhuang, cap­i­tal of He­bei, all phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal plants have been re­quired to halt their op­er­a­tions since Nov 18, a mea­sure that will last un­til the end of this year. In ad­di­tion, another seven in­dus­tries, in­clud­ing steel and iron, ce­ment and glass mak­ing, have also had pro­duc­tion sus­pended un­til Dec 31.
