China Pollution

The government of Lijiang, an ancient city and World Cultural Heritage site in southwestern China’s Yunnan Province, has threatened to impose hefty fines on polluters in order to protect the local environment.
Local companies will face a maximum fine of one million yuan (about US$146,000) if they fail to meet annual targets of energy consumption and emission reduction, sources with the local environment protection bureau said.

The companies will lose tax rebates and other preferential policies, and they face a threat of being shut down if they do not complete renovation in a stipulated two years’ time, he said.
