Local authorities should encourage residents not to use coal-fueled stoves to completely eliminate the use of the stoves soon.

The department was assigned to build detail scenarios on response to and prevention of air pollution, associating the measures into its short, middle and long-term plans.

It is requested to give guidelines to local residents on how to turn straws into environmentally-friendly production materials.

Meanwhile, the city’s police force will strictly handle the use of outdated transportation vehicles that harm the environment.
