The Key Laboratory of Pollution Control and Ecological Restoration in Industrial Clusters of the Ministry of Education was officially approved by the Ministry of Education in December 2008. In April 2009, the laboratory construction plan was approved by the Ministry of Education. In May 2011, the laboratory passed the construction inspection by the expert group of the Ministry of Education. In December 2015, the laboratory successfully passed the expert evaluation of the Ministry of Education.
The laboratory centers around the key scientific and technological problems about industrial clusters pollution control and ecological restoration,, and has formed distinct characteristics in four research directions, including industrial wastewater treatment and reuse, industrial waste gas purification, dispose and resource utilization of industrial waste, industrial pollution and ecological restoration, and obtained independent research achievement. The method and technology system of collaborative control of macro pollutants and micro pollutants in the process of industrial wastewater treatment has been constructed, which is widely used in typical industrial wastewater, such as coal chemical industry, paper making, printing and dyeing industry. The research methods and technical system of high-resolution dynamic emission source inventory for regional air composite pollution research have been established, and key control technologies for industrial volatile organic compounds have been developed, providing scientific and technical support for air quality assurance of Asian Games held in Guangzhou and Universiade held in Shenzhen. The technology of desulfurization of waste residue to produce potash fertilizer and the technology of logistics state treatment and reuse of electronic waste have been developed. The adsorbent material with high biochemistry activity was prepared and applied in the contaminated site. The research results have been awarded the second prize of the National Science and Technology Progress Award and many other national and provincial awards.
