Abstract: In the early stage, because the slag yard in Jinjiang Park of Panzhihua Vanadium and Titanium Industrial Park was required to stop operation and rectification, the entire chemical enterprises in the park completely stopped production, and many titanium dioxide production enterprises in the area were also forced to stop production. After the slag yard was rectified, the titanium dioxide enterprises in the park recently resumed production.
In the early stage, because the slag yard in Jinjiang Park of Panzhihua Vanadium and Titanium Industrial Park was required to stop operation and rectification, the chemical enterprises in the entire park were completely suspended, and many titanium dioxide production enterprises in the area were also forced to stop production. After the slag yard was rectified, the titanium dioxide enterprises in the park recently resumed production.
Judging from local news, Shandong, Jilin, Zhejiang, Sichuan and other places have held mobilization meetings to welcome the central environmental protection inspectors. Sichuan Province has also initiated environmental protection inspections in the province. Some titanium mines in Panzhihua have already shut down. On August 2, the Central Environmental Protection Inspection and Inspection Team organized more than 3,000 law enforcement officers to conduct environmental inspections and inspections of enterprises in various districts of Chengdu.
It is reported that the central environmental protection inspection and inspection team will enter Panzhihua in mid-August, and the local environmental protection bureau of Panzhihua has first tested the titanium dioxide enterprises in the park, and the titanium dioxide enterprises are under great environmental protection pressure. Although some enterprises have resumed production, under the influence of the normalization of environmental protection supervision, the environmental protection pressure of enterprises has not weakened at all, or they are facing stricter environmental protection supervision.
The titanium dioxide industry is burdened with the hat of "double high", and faces the risk of inspection and shutdown if it is not careful. In the past month, Shandong and other places have carried out special actions for environmental protection law enforcement. volatile organic compounds) emission enterprises to crack down on environmental violations. Titanium dioxide enterprises have been affected to a certain extent. Supervision focuses on checking whether the pollution control facilities are built and operating normally, whether the pollutant discharge meets the standards, whether it is secretly discharged, whether the online automatic detection facilities are operating normally, and whether the sewage outlet settings are standardized.
In 2017, the "full coverage" of the central environmental protection inspector will be achieved. At present, 16 provinces across the country have accepted the central environmental protection inspector. Next, Xinjiang, Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan, Shandong, Hainan, Jilin, Zhejiang and other places will accept the central environmental protection inspector. After Li Ganjie, the new Minister of Environmental Protection, took office, he proposed a "five-step method", that is, inspection, assignment, inspection, interview, and special inspection. For enterprises that cannot upgrade and meet emission standards, they will all be closed before the end of September 2017.
For the titanium dioxide industry, it is imperative to meet the standards of energy conservation, emission reduction, and clean production. In the face of strict environmental protection policies, there is no chance to pass the test by "lucky luck", but only "if conditions exist, and there are no conditions to create conditions." To speed up the transformation Production technology, increase investment in environmental protection in order to meet environmental protection requirements as soon as possible, and at the same time start with energy conservation and emission reduction to reduce costs, and build a foundation for sustainable development is a critical period facing enterprises at present. Wise choice.
