China to Impose Limits on Six Industries to Tackle Air Pollution

According to Bloomberg news, China is set to impose industrial emission limits on six industries in an effort to address the country's growing pollution crisis.

Starting March 1st the government is "strictly imposing" limits to improve air quality in 47 cities. New and existing plants including chemical, steel, oil, cement, metal, and thermal power facilities will all be forced to curb emissions.

China is home to 16 of the world's top 20 most polluted cities and has been under the glare of the world media when in early 2013 Beijing broke all records for dangerous air quality.
