Environmental protection and pollution management in China

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

It has become increasingly apparent in recent years that pollution problems are becoming more global in nature. That is, human activities in one region have a significant impact on the environmental quality many miles removed from that region (Sawyer et al. 1994). The quantity of some effluents has overcome the natural, self-cleansing powers of the atmosphere, waters, and earth and has exceeded the natural ‘digestive’ abilities.
