Shagang ordered to probe pollution violations
    2018-07-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

JIANGSU Shagang Group, China’s third-biggest steelmaker, was ordered Friday to hold a formal investigation into its operations after it was accused by the government a day earlier of failing to rectify breaches in pollution rules.

The Shenzhen Stock Exchange asked Jiangsu Shagang to look into its environmental protection record and fully disclose any violations made by the firm or its subsidiaries.

China completed a probe into thousands of environmental violations last year and in recent weeks it has been reviewing how the problems have been redressed.

The probe has uncovered dozens of examples of “perfunctory,” “superficial” or “fraudulent” rectifications, with authorities also accused of responding too slowly to complaints and taking damaging “short cuts” in order to resolve problems.

The steel sector is one of the country’s biggest sources of smog and solid waste, but while standards in the industry are now among the world’s toughest, regulators have struggled to enforce them.

Last year, Jiangsu Shagang, China’s largest privately owned steel producer, was found to have dumped millions of tons of untreated waste, including slag from steel production, in landfills near the banks of the Yangtze River, contaminating nearby soil and water.

The firm, which produced 38 million tons of steel last year, has also failed to rectify violations of emissions standards at its boilers and coking coal plant, despite being fined, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment said Thursday.

“Shagang is a listed firm with annual sales exceeding 200 billion yuan (US$30.14 billion), but it failed to take up responsibility for ecological protection,” the ministry said. (SD-Agencies)
