Air quality in East China’s Anhui province has been improved thanks to its continuous efforts in air pollution control since the beginning of 2019, local environmental authorities said on December 27.

The province’s average density of PM 2.5, the fine particulate matter that is hazardous to human health, reached 46 micrograms per cubic meter, a record low ever since it was monitored, according to the Department of Ecology and Environment of Anhui Province.

16 cities around the province saw 70 days with severe air pollution in total, 70 less compared with the same period last year.

Autumn and winter are the key periods for air pollution control. The province saw the density of PM 2.5 slip 6.7 percent year-on-year to 53 micrograms per cubic meter in the autumn and winter. Meanwhile, the total number of days with heavy pollution dropped from 47 in 2015 to 8.

Effective steps have been taken to curb air pollution since the beginning of this year, the department said. The province has tightened coal, gas, car, dust and straw-burning control, and improved industry, energy, transport and land-using structures.

The department will continue to urge local governments to achieve annual targets for air pollution control on schedule.
