Report coauthored by STI aims to help China solve air quality crisis
The report analyzed air quality conditions in three cities in the Jiangsu Province that have been heavily impacted by pollution. Increased emissions from industrial sources and coal plants, combined with Jiangsu’s natural geography and its tendency to limit pollutant dispersion, have contributed to a sharp rise in poor air quality in the province. The report provided a range of recommendations to help the Ministry of Environmental Protection with air quality planning efforts to protect both Jiangsu Province and China on a national level.
STI coauthored the report, documented sources of air pollution around the Jiangsu Province, provided in-person training on air quality modeling and the use of the AirNow-International program, and developed regional planning and control options.
