Introduction

Introduction

  • Quantitative statistics, models and data collected: Shanghai, China

  • Examines air quality relative to economic growth

  • Studies different techniques to reduce urban air pollution in developing countries without slowing gross domestic product (GDP) growth


Air pollution in china

Air Pollution in China

  • China is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world

  • Shanghai, China is the 6th worst city for air pollution

  • Four fundamental air pollutants

    • Carbon Monoxide; Sulfur Dioxide; Particulate Matter & Nitrogen Dioxide


Air quality in relationship to economic growth

Air Quality in Relationship to Economic Growth

  • 1978 China shifted from a centrally planned economy to a market based economy

  • Past 40 years China’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) increased from 5% to 10.4%

  • China’s total energy consumption increased 7 times in 34 years

  • Increase number of coal power plants to meet energy demand


Techniques innovative technologies

Techniques & Innovative Technologies

  • Most efficient method to reduce pollution

    • Individual basis, with industry and government incentives

      • Example: Vehicle engine emissions

  • Innovative technologies

    • Bio-filtration systems

    • Public transportation

  • Alternative fuels
