Pollution regulations hit China textile output

Written by Brett Mathews

BEIJING - More than nine out of ten textile factories in China face the risk of shutdown within three years if they fail to meet strict new pollution targets under the country's Water Ten Plan which aims to improve water supplies and shut down factories that are poisoning rivers, lakes and groundwater. Under the regulations, small factories in textile dyeing and finishing that do not comply with new national standards by 2016 will be shut-down, while by 2017, textile dyeing and finishing and leather factories will be required to complete technological upgrades. Industrial clusters and parks will also be required to have centralised treatment facilities and real-time pollution discharge monitoring in place.
