Huangpu district boasts a green ecological environment.
Guangzhou's Huangpu district has achieved eye-catching results in ecological environment protection and the air quality continues to improve, China Environment News reported on March 9.
In 2021, the first year of the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25), the district was among the top three in the city in terms of the ratio of good and fairly-good air quality days. In the past two years, it has led the city in terms of the year-on-year change rate of average PM 2.5 and PM 10 concentrations.
By the end of 2021, all 17 communities and towns in the district installed ambient air automatic monitoring networks that meet national standards, making it the first district in Guangzhou to do so.
Since June 2020, Huangpu has been working on a new project that includes the deployment of 500 new energy dump trucks in the Zhenlong area, and these trucks were put into use in January.
These vehicles can drive for over 400 kilometers on a single hydrogen charge and the application of these trunks is expected to cut carbon emissions by 35,000 metric tons annually, according to a project official.
The project is the largest of its kind in China in scale and will effectively reduce the emissions of air pollutants in Huangpu district and become a demonstration area for the development of the district's new energy development.
