Every day announcing fine dust warnings, Chungcheongnam-do is a concentrated coal-fired power plant, which is considered to be the main cause of heavy dust.
In addition, Chungcheong Province supplies more than half of the energy in Cebu City.
According to province of Chungnam province on August 8, among the 61 coal-fired power stations operating across the country, there were 30 coal-fired power plants located in the province of Chungnam. Hugh of the country's thermal power plants is located in Chungcheongnam-do.
Yang Seungjo said his commitment to the Chungcheong coal-fired power plants will be phased out until 1420 to solve the problem of fine dust.
Recently, the Ministry of Environment and the National Environmental Research Institute published the results of the analysis of the air quality effects of the old coal-fired power plant, which were closed in March-June this year. As a result of the decommissioning of the old coal-fired power plant, Chungnam reduced 487 tonnes of ultra-dust dust, while greenhouse gases fell by 5,151,000 tonnes.
That is why the thermal power plants that emit air pollutants, such as dust and greenhouse gases, are considered to be the main causes of fine dust.
However, it has been pointed out that it is impossible to focus only on Chungnam, where coal-fired power plants are concentrated on fine dust.
According to the capacity statistics system announced in 2017, the annual electricity production in the province of Chungcheong is 13,992 GWh. In particular, the province of Chongqing Province produces 13 992 GWh of electricity per year and supplies 64 872 GWh or 62.8% to the Seoul metropolitan area.
About 60% of the electricity produced in the province of Chungcheong is supplied outside the metropolitan area. The province of Chungcheong is known to be the first to emit greenhouse gases and the other to emit pollutants from the air.
So Chongcheng's complaints –
Yang Moo, who lives in Hong Kong, said: "Although the thermal power plant is in Chungcheongnam-do, it is uncomfortable to look at it as if it is caused by Chungcheongnam-not just to use electricity produced here." Good dust, I do not think our locals drink gas. "
Chungcheongnam-do, Member of the Ministry of Climate, Environment and Environment, said Kim Myung-sook, "Although the suffering of the population caused by heat generation is increasing, I do not know what efforts to raise the tax rate. From 2015, dust emissions are 279 453 tonnes, and it is the second largest in the country, and it is necessary to provide for special measures to reduce fine dust. "
Meanwhile, Chungcheongnam-do recently joined the Coal Alliance in Asia and jointly announced a joint declaration on a green energy conversion with the Ministry of the Environment and the city of Seoul, Incheon City and Gyeonggi Province. Kim Jung got a reporter
