Waste-free city

At the scene, People were concerned about the construction of a “waste-free city.”

“Many people inevitably produce solid waste in their daily lives,” said Hu Gang, Deputy Director of the Solids Division of the Chongqing Ecology and Environment Bureau. “Participating in the construction of a ‘waste-free city’ only requires a little effort from each one of us.”

“For example, sorting domestic waste, minimizing the use of plastic products, recycling express packaging waste, and implementing green offices can all reduce solid waste,” said Hu.

Electromagnetic radiation

As 5G is gradually being promoted and applied in recent years, the increase in mobile communication base stations has caused residents to worry about electromagnetic radiation from base stations.

Chen Rui, a cadre of the Nuclear Safety Division of the Chongqing Ecology and Environment Bureau, introduced that to improve the environment and protect public health, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, China Tower, etc. have signed the Communications Memorandum of Base Station Environmental Protection Work in 2017.

“Under the premise of strictly implementing the Memorandum and relevant national standards, the electromagnetic radiation effects of mobile phone base stations can be controlled within a safe range,” said Chen. “Electromagnetic radiation from 5G base stations is extremely weak, so there is no need to worry about.”

Ecological environment

“Implementing the national green culture concept is essential to enhance the quality of the ecological environment at the Yubei district,” said Chen Xuejun, deputy director of the Ecology and Environment Bureau of Yubei District. “This is also conducive to consolidating the achievements of the national ecological civilization construction demonstration zone, allowing the people to embark on a green development path featuring production development, affluent life, and good ecology in Yubei.”

Taking the clean water and green bank improvement project in the Panxi River and Gailanxi River Basins flowing through Longshan Street as an example, Chen introduced that on the basis of eliminating the pollution of the water body, the two rivers have carried out the improvement of the water environment quality and the improvement of the coastal ecological environment.
