Smoggy Bei­jing mulls truck ban

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Bei­jing’s En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Bureau is con­sid­er­ing a ban on the use of trucks that trans­port coal. It also wants coal stor­age fa­cil­i­ties in Tian­jin to be closed. Tian­jin is one of China’s busiest ports. A re­searcher with the bureau said the dras­tic move may be nec­es­sary to rein in run­away smog. The bureau has not made any for­mal pro­posal to the mu­nic­i­pal govern­ment of Tian­jin yet, said Zhou Yang­sheng, a re­searcher with the agency. He made the re­marks at a coal in­dus­try brief­ing late on Mon­day.
