The Ministry of Ecology and Environment said in the letter that in order to ensure the success of the 13th Five-Year Plan air quality improvement goals, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment would carry out a summer ozone pollution prevention and control campaign from May to October 2020, and would organize an evaluation of the effectiveness of the campaign. South China University of Technology, as the main member of the evaluation group of treatment technology and emission reduction effect, had made important contributions to the evaluation of the effectiveness of the action and provided strong scientific and technological support for the complete success of the action, which highly praised by Party Secretary Sun, Jinlong, Minister Huang, Runqiu and other leaders.
Guangdong Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment said in the letter that South China University of Technology took the lead in conducting research on the control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in China, providing important scientific support for the coordinated control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) and the prevention and control of ozone pollution in Guangdong. With the strong support of SCUT, our province has explored a practical and effective win-win road of air quality improvement and economic and social, green and healthy development. In the "300 actions" of "Battle for the Blue Sky" in 2020, the scientific research team of SCUT worked hard to overcome difficulties and participated in the prevention and control of regional pollution process, making great contributions to the victory of the battle to prevent and control air pollution in our province.
