China’s Air Quality Crisis Grinds Car Production to a Halt
Camfil USA, the leader in air filters for commercial and industrial applications, discusses China’s steps to ease the burden on commercial air filtration systems.
Clean Air Solutions / April 23, 2019 / -- In response to China’s air quality crisis, many homes and buildings are being outfitted with commercial and industrial air filters to keep dirty outside air from contaminating indoor spaces.
The Chinese leadership is under intense pressure to solve the problem of air pollution, a hot-button issue in China that promoted rare protests on the Chinese social media network WeChat, where people demanded the Government to finally take action. In the country’s northern cities, the smog can be so thick and toxic it has been known to temporarily shut down schools and businesses.
Role Played by Commercial Air Filters in China
In an effort to ease the burden on the country’s commercial air filtration systems and improve their indoor air quality productivity, the Chinese government has suspended production of more than 500 car models and model versions that fail to meet the country’s fuel economy standards. The move is one of the latest in a series of actions by Beijing to reduce severe emissions in what is arguably the world’s largest market for automobiles and take the lead in the fight against air pollution and climate change.
The suspension comes amid intensified efforts around the globe to crack down on pollution-spewing cars, which not only degrade air quality, but have also shown to cause high morbidity and mortality rates for drivers, commuters, and people living near freeways and roads with high road congestion
But, what vehicles are affected and what does China’s ban of 500 car models really mean for commercial air filtration systems? Continue reading.
