on November 30, the Ministry of ecological environment held a regular press conference in November. Qiu Qiwen, director of the Department of solid waste and chemicals of the Ministry of ecological environment, attended the press conference and introduced the environmental management of solid waste. Liuyoubin, spokesman of the Ministry of ecological environment, presided over the press conference, briefed on the recent progress of key ecological and environmental protection work, and jointly answered questions of concern

At the press conference, Qiu Qiwen, director of the Department of solid waste and chemicals of the Ministry of ecological environment, introduced China's ban on the entry of foreign garbage and the management of solid waste environment. And ask and answer questions with the media

the "suggestions of the CPC Central Committee on formulating the 14th five year plan and the long-term goals for the year 2013 for national economic and social development" adopted at the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee put forward clear requirements for solid waste, especially hazardous waste, medical waste pollution prevention and control, new pollutant treatment, etc. p>

current progress: prohibit the entry of foreign garbage and promote the reform of solid waste import management system. We will solidly promote the pilot project of building a "waste free city". We will accelerate the completion of the shortcomings in the collection and treatment of hazardous waste and medical waste, and organize the prevention and control of environmental risks of toxic and harmful chemicals. Strive to improve the ability of environmental supervision and environmental risk prevention and control

this year is the year of the ban on foreign garbage, and zero import of solid waste in 2020. How is the current progress and whether it can be achieved? What measures will our Congress take to regulate

since the general office of the State Council issued the "implementation plan for prohibiting the entry of foreign garbage and promoting the reform of the solid waste import management system" in 2017, after more than three years of unremitting efforts, the reform has achieved remarkable results. The goal of zero import of solid waste by the end of 2020 is in sight

the import volume of solid waste has decreased significantly year by year. In 2017, 2018 and 2019, the national solid waste import volume was 42.27 million tons, 22.63 million tons and 13.48 million tons, respectively, compared with 46.55 million tons in 2016 before the reform, a decrease of 9.2%, 51.4% and 71% respectively. As of November 15, 2020, the total import volume of solid waste nationwide was 7.18 million tons, a year-on-year decrease of 41%

all key reform tasks were solidly advanced. The 50 key tasks detailed in the reform implementation plan have been completed or continuously promoted as planned. The newly revised "solid waste law" will be implemented from September 1, which clearly stipulates that "the state will gradually realize zero import of solid waste". This year, 13 batches of solid waste import licenses have been handled as planned, and the annual examination and approval work has been completed. On November 24, the Ministry of ecological environment and relevant departments jointly issued an announcement that China will prohibit the import of solid waste in any way from January 1, 2021

after the import of solid waste is completely prohibited, our department will continue to do the following work based on department responsibilities

work with relevant departments to implement the newly revised "solid waste law", improve relevant supporting laws and regulations, and do a good job in the establishment, abolition and reform of the system related to the comprehensive prohibition of the import of solid waste

actively cooperate with the General Administration of Customs to give full play to the mechanism of the national inter ministerial joint meeting on Combating Smuggling, continue to carry out the action against foreign garbage smuggling, strictly punish illegal acts such as importing solid waste according to law, and effectively cut off the supply and demand chain of foreign garbage smuggling

continue to strengthen the cleaning up and rectification of solid waste distribution centers and "scattered pollution" enterprises, strengthen the supervision of the solid waste recycling industry, and investigate and deal with environmental violations in the solid waste processing and utilization industry according to law

we know that China will completely ban the import of solid waste in 2021, and companies that previously had the main business of import will only produce degraded product coke in the domestic market. At present, China's domestic waste recycling industry is still relatively primitive, and the industry standard is not high. Next, how can the Ministry of ecological environment guide enterprises to speed up the layout of domestic waste recycling channels and force the domestic renewable resources industry to turn from a small mess to high-quality development?

as you said, the domestic renewable resources recycling system still needs to be further improved. The proposal of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on formulating the 14th five year plan for national economic and social development and the long-term goals for the year 2013, which was deliberated and adopted at the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, clearly stated that garbage classification, reduction and recycling should be promoted; We will accelerate the construction of a recycling system for waste materials

since the reform of banning the import of foreign garbage, the member units of the inter ministerial coordination group have done a lot of work around strengthening the conservation and intensive utilization of resources, comprehensively improving the level of harmless and resourceful utilization of domestic solid waste, and gradually filling the domestic resource gap

accelerate garbage classification and standardize the construction of solid waste recycling system. The Ministry of housing and urban rural development will work with relevant departments to promote the comprehensive start of garbage classification in cities above the prefecture level; The coverage rate of garbage classified residential quarters in 46 key cities reached 81.2%. The post office vigorously promoted the reduction of the use of packaging materials, and the utilization rate of recyclable transfer bags reached 87.2%. The Ministry of ecological environment has carried out pilot work of centralized collection and trans regional transportation system for lead-acid battery manufacturers in more than 20 provinces including Beijing

promote the development of domestic solid waste processing and utilization industry. The national development and Reform Commission issued guidance, laid out the construction of 49 "urban mineral" demonstration bases, and supported the implementation of recycling transformation in 129 parks. The Ministry of industry and information technology guided and promoted the construction of 60 industrial resources comprehensive utilization bases. The Ministry of ecological environment took the lead in guiding "11+5" cities and regions to carry out the pilot construction of "waste free cities", and vigorously promoted the source reduction and resource utilization of solid waste

strive to improve the capacity-building of solid waste utilization and treatment facilities. The Ministry of ecological environment issued a notice urging the municipal and County People's governments to speed up the construction of centralized disposal facilities. The national development and Reform Commission printed and issued the implementation plan to promote urban domestic waste classification and treatment facilities to fill the weaknesses, strengthen the capacity-building of medical waste centralized disposal facilities, and promote the filling of the disposal capacity gap

in the next step, we will conscientiously implement the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, promote the deep integration of reform and ecological environment protection, and focus on the following three aspects:

under the guidance of accelerating the construction of a new development pattern with the domestic cycle as the main body and the domestic and international double cycles promoting each other, we will cooperate with relevant departments to further improve the domestic recycling system and strengthen the resource utilization level of solid waste

continue to strengthen the renovation of solid waste distribution centers, strictly investigate and deal with environmental violations in the solid waste processing and utilization industry according to law, and force "scattered pollution" enterprises to accelerate the transformation and upgrading, so as to promote the high-quality development of the domestic renewable resources industry

take the pilot project of "waste free city" construction as the guide, fully promote the reform of comprehensive solid waste management, and explore a replicable and popularized model to promote the domestic renewable resources industry to develop in a large-scale and high-quality way

the new solid waste law has been implemented on September 1, and what results have been achieved so far? Where is the new law? What new means does it have for curbing solid waste and eliminating pollution in time

since the promulgation of the newly revised "solid waste law", the Ministry of ecological environment has strengthened the publicity and implementation, made great efforts to promote the implementation, and achieved positive results

increase publicity of law popularization. Compile the interpretation of legal provisions, carry out authoritative interpretation, and organize experts to write a series of interpretation articles. The national eco-environmental system training course was held, and more than 7200 people participated in the training

revise and improve supporting regulations and standards. Complete the revision of the national catalogue of hazardous wastes and pollution control standards for hazardous waste incineration, medical waste treatment and disposal, general industrial solid waste storage and landfill. We are speeding up the revision of hazardous waste license management measures and transfer management measures

implement the new legal requirements. Clarify the division of tasks within the Department, and refine the implementation requirements for key terms. Vigorously promote the reform of banning the import of foreign garbage, solidly carry out the pilot construction of "waste free cities", strengthen the comprehensive treatment of "white pollution", guide and urge all regions to earnestly implement the two 100% work requirements for epidemic prevention and control of medical waste

in the next step, we need to strengthen the following aspects: first, further strengthen the publicity and implementation of the law, and create a good atmosphere of consciously learning, knowing, using and abiding by the law; Second, further strengthen capacity-building and make up for the shortcomings in the utilization and disposal of hazardous waste and solid waste; Third, further compact the main body of the enterprise, strengthen departmental cooperation, and form a working force; Fourth, further strengthen supervision and law enforcement, innovate regulatory means and mechanisms, and ensure the effectiveness of the implementation of the new law

the newly revised "solid waste law" runs through the new development concept. I think the "new" of the new law is mainly reflected in the following seven aspects:

establishes the "three modernizations" principles of reduction, recycling and harmlessness

clarify the relevant provisions of the central reform tasks such as the classification of domestic waste and the prohibition of the import of solid waste

strengthened the supervision of enterprise subjects, local government territories and departments

responded to the concerns of the masses about the environmental problems of new business forms such as epidemic prevention and control, emergency disposal of medical waste, plastic pollution control, express delivery and so on

the prevention and control system of environmental pollution by hazardous waste, construction waste and agricultural waste has been improved

strengthened economic and technological policy guarantee measures

it highlights the severe punishment and heavy punishment, making the "solid waste law" truly a "toothy" law

the life and authority of law lies in its implementation. p>
