A few days ago, Guangdong issued the "Announcement on Implementation of Special Emission Limits of Air Pollutants in the Iron and Steel, Petrochemical and Cement Industries (Consultation Draft)". The Opinion Draft requires that the petrochemical industry implement special emission limits for particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and volatile organic compounds. The new project will be implemented from June 1, 2018. Existing enterprises will be implemented from December 1, 2018.

Third, other requirements
(1) Competent environmental protection authorities at all levels shall review and approve new projects in strict accordance with the above requirements to ensure that special emission limits for atmospheric pollutants are met.
(2) Existing enterprises shall take effective measures to meet the requirements for special emission limits of atmospheric pollutants within the prescribed period. If the deadline is still not reached, the relevant competent authority shall strictly follow the requirements of the "Environmental Protection Law of the People's Republic of China" and the "Law of the People's Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Atmospheric Pollution" to order corrections or restrictions on production, suspension of production, and fines; With the approval of the people's government that has the right to approve, it shall be ordered to suspend business or close down.
