Wu Xiaoqing said that in the future, the Ministry of environmental protection will give unified consideration to the resumption of production and reconstruction in earthquake areas and earthquake stricken areas in accordance with relevant national regulations and the investigation of experts

Wu Xiaoqing said that the earthquake stricken areas are relatively concentrated areas of high-risk industries in China. According to statistics, there are more than 100 chemical enterprises in Chengdu, Deyang, Mianyang, Guangyuan, Ya'an, Meishan, waste foam granulator with a waste volume of 54.74 million tons, ABA and other places, including 45 key chemical enterprises controlled by China and province. At present, 76% of chemical enterprises are in the state of shutdown, 41% of national and provincial key sources are affected by the earthquake, and there are 59 hazardous waste production units in Chengdu, Deyang, Mianyang, Guangyuan and other places alone

Wu Xiaoqing said that after the earthquake, the Ministry of environmental protection had asked the on-site working group and local environmental protection departments to track and deal with the more than 38 environmental hazards found, and urged enterprises to rectify them one by one. The environmental protection bureaus of 13 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the central government) including Shaanxi, Gansu and Chongqing also organized 11161 person times to inspect 4346 enterprises, including 2410 chemical enterprises

Wu Xiaoqing said that the earthquake has brought great losses to industrial and mining enterprises in the earthquake stricken areas, including the 10 million ton ethylene project of PetroChina to be built. The Sichuan 10million ton/year oil refining and 800000 ton/year ethylene projects jointly invested and constructed by PetroChina and Sichuan Province have recently passed the review of the national development and Reform Commission and have been fully launched, with a planned investment of 4billion yuan in the first phase. The petrochemical base is located in Pengzhou City. At present, Pengzhou is seriously affected, and a large number of houses in Longmenshan town have collapsed

Wu Xiaoqing said that at present, relevant departments are conducting professional evaluation in some fields on the earthquake and the damage to Pengzhou area. If the evaluation results believe that the accuracy and sensitivity of the hardness tester are poor, and the geological conditions of the Pengzhou plant site and major changes have occurred after the catastrophic earthquake, the Ministry of environmental protection will put forward specific requirements for the Sichuan Petrochemical Project Based on the professional evaluation results and other relevant information

Wu Xiaoqing also revealed that as of the morning of the 21st, the Ministry of environmental protection had received reports of four chemical plant leaks, namely, the leakage of liquid ammonia and sulfuric acid from Yingfeng Industrial Co., Ltd. and Hongda Chemical Co., Ltd. in Shifang, Sichuan; Liquid ammonia leaked from Kaige meat complex in Qingchuan County; The collapse of fengphosphorus Chemical Co., Ltd. in Hanwang Town, Mianzhu City caused the burning of yellow phosphorus. Fortunately, there was no pollution accident

Wu Xiaoqing said that the next priority is to deal with the possible environmental problems of the site cleaning in the disaster area. Wu Xiaoqing said that the Ministry of environmental protection has put forward opinions and suggestions with relevant departments. In particular, it is proposed to strictly disinfect and bury the cleaned carcasses of livestock and poultry, and toxic chemicals should be used with caution. We should also strengthen the monitoring of pathogens, reduce water transportation activities as much as possible, and formulate relevant emergency plans for water security
