China clamps down on textile polluters

Written by John Mowbray

BEIJING - New research from China claims a quarter of the textile dyeing and finishing capacity in Shaoxing City has been shut down since the introduction of new environmental regulations in the past two years. Shaoxing accounts for around a third of China's dyeing production capacity, and local government officials there have been particularly proactive in enforcing stricter national government regulations aimed at curtailing pollution from the country's textile industry. The research claims 64 dyeing and finishing units have been closed and a further 100 ordered to make technological upgrades as a prerequisite of remaining operational.
