BEIJING - A Chinese NGO has filed what is believed to be the first 'public interest' litigation for air pollution under China's wide-reaching new environmental law in a move which could have major implications for the country's textile industry. The All-China Environmental Federation is seeking US$4.8 million compensation from a Shandong chemical company for air pollution, basing potential damages on the company's operating costs in a bid to win a public interest litigation. If successful, the compensation will be paid to the Dezhou city government and ring-fenced for dealing with air pollution.
