Qiu Qiwen said that in recent years, the utilization and disposal capacity of hazardous waste in various regions has been greatly improved, and the disposal price has decreased significantly. In the next step, we will scientifically assess the demand for disposal capacity and focus on improving the centralized disposal capacity of hazardous waste.
Strengthen the prevention and control of hazardous waste pollution
Qiu Qiwen pointed out that the Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the prevention and control of hazardous waste pollution. The Ministry of ecology and environment has made solid progress in various work, and resolutely and vigorously cracked down on illegal dumping and other illegal and criminal activities.
At the same time, Qiu Qiwen said: in recent years, the utilization and disposal capacity of hazardous waste in various regions has been greatly improved, and the disposal price has decreased significantly.
For the next step of work, Qiu Qiwen pointed out that the prevention and control of hazardous waste pollution will continue to be strengthened around the three promotion and one strike: establish and improve the long-term mechanism of hazardous waste supervision, focus on improving the environmental supervision capacity of hazardous waste; scientifically assess the demand for disposal capacity, focus on improving the centralized disposal capacity of hazardous waste; and consolidate the solid waste supervision work foundation Efforts should be made to improve the environmental risk prevention capability of hazardous wastes. One strike is to severely crack down on illegal transfer and dumping of solid waste, especially hazardous waste, and effectively curb the occurrence of illegal dumping.
Continuously improve the utilization and disposal capacity
In October 2019, the Ministry of ecology and environment issued the guidance on improving the environmental supervision capacity, utilization and disposal capacity and environmental risk prevention capacity of hazardous wastes. According to the document, all provincial eco-environmental departments should complete the assessment of hazardous waste generation, utilization and disposal capacity and facility operation by the end of 2020, scientifically formulate and implement the construction plan of hazardous waste centralized disposal facilities, promote the local government to incorporate the centralized hazardous waste disposal facilities into the overall construction of local public infrastructure, and focus on the centralized incineration and landfill disposal of hazardous waste Tax revenue, capital investment and construction land are provided with policy guarantee.
Qiu Qiwen pointed out that in recent years, Chinas capacity for hazardous waste utilization and disposal has been continuously improved. By the end of 2019, the centralized utilization and disposal capacity of hazardous wastes in China has exceeded 110 million tons / year, of which the utilization capacity and disposal capacity have increased by 1 times and 1.6 times respectively compared with the end of the 12th Five Year Plan.
Qiu Qiwen said: there are many types of solid waste. In the next step, the Ministry of ecology and environment will conscientiously implement the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, implement the new solid waste law, and continuously promote the construction of solid waste disposal capacity.
The specific work includes: supervise and urge the implementation of the main responsibility of local government facilities construction, strive to improve the collection and treatment capacity of hazardous waste medical waste; further promote the pilot work of waste free city construction, form a batch of replicable and promotable demonstration models and innovative practices, improve the solid waste disposal capacity and level from the perspective of the city; actively cooperate with relevant departments to promote waste separation The comprehensive utilization of industrial solid waste and the recycling and disposal of agricultural waste will continue to improve the capacity and level of solid waste treatment.
At the same time, the Ministry of solid waste will gradually implement the zero solid waste import law on January. This year, 13 batches of solid waste import licenses have been handled according to the plan, and the annual examination and approval work has been completed. Since January 1, 2021, China has banned the import of solid waste in any way.
