According to report, Shijiazhuang, one of China’s smoggiest cities, is targeting to cut down 15 million tonnes from its coal consumption by 2018. This is inclusive of a 4-million ton cut this 2014.
A city official also said that they are planning to minimize iron and steel, ceramics, chemical fertiliser production, and coal carbonisation to further reduce emissions.
