To provide a clear reference for the calculation of air pollutant emissions, the EPA also formulated the Regulations Governing Emission Factors, Control Efficiency, and Other Quantitative Calculations for Air Pollution Control Fees for Stationary Sources in Public and Private Premises. The regulations took effect on 1 July 2018 and were devised by referencing domestic and international emission factors, control measures and current implementation status.
To encourage public and private enterprises to implement control measures for air pollutant reduction, the EPA has started collecting air pollution control fees for nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. The collection targets public and private enterprises whose seasonal NOx emissions exceed 24 metric tons and are produced from the use of natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas.
The EPA reminds public and private premises that the above mentioned regulations will apply to the third quarterly fee collection (for emissions produced from July to September) coming up in October 2018.
