SINGAPORE (July 1): Pollution remains a problem in China. According to the Chinese press, the Lianjiang River in Guangdong has become a “black dragon”, with the riverbed seriously silted and the water black and smelly. The reason, it appears, is discharge from the textiles, garments, printing and dyeing industries in Shantou district.

Textiles and garments are two of the main industries, while printing and dyeing is the traditional key industry of Shantou, according to the local press. Large and small printing and dyeing enterprises are scattered all over the Lianjiang River Basin, making it difficult for pollution to be effectively managed and controlled, the Chinese press points out. In addition, unlicensed illegal dumping that greatly exceeds discharge standards makes this one of the main sources of pollution into the Lianjiang River, it adds.

To mitigate pollution, printing and dyeing factories that meet certain standards are being relocated in the textile circular economy industrial park in Shantou.
