Tackle the Air Pollution Caused by Burning Fallen Leaves in Downtown Area of Wuhan by Learning From the Air Pollution Elimination Plan of Chile

Qing REN


In recent years, the air condition is getting worse and worse, and smog days are becoming more frequent than ever. The air quality level of Wuhan city ranges from unhealthy for sensitive groups (air quality index is 101-101) to unhealthy (AQI is 151-200), from very unhealthy (AQI 201-300) to hazardous (300+). Main air pollutant is PM2.5. But just in such a serious air polluted situation, the burning of straws in farmland of Hubei and other adjacent provinces has never been banned completely. And burning the fallen leaves is prevailing even in the downtown area of Wuhan. While, Chile’s experience and action provide us with valuable reference on how to effectively tackle farmland straw burning and fallen leaves burning in urban areas, removing this source of atmospheric pollution.
