The Ministry of Agriculture proposes the goal of soil pollution control to open up a trillion market scale
According to the Ministry of Agriculture's website, the Ministry of Agriculture issued the implementation opinions on implementing the "Soil Pollution Prevention Action Plan." In addition, the Minister of Environmental Protection Chen Jinin stated at the press conference on the 5th session of the 12th National People's Congress on the afternoon of the 9th that he is implementing a work plan for detailed investigation of soil pollution and promoting the introduction of relevant regulations and standards.
The opinions put forward that by 2020, the classification of the arable land soil environmental quality will be completed, the soil pollution control will be promoted in an orderly manner, and the heavy metal pollution and white pollution of cultivated land will be effectively contained. The priority protected farmland area does not decrease, and the soil environmental quality is stable; the safe utilization rate of the contaminated farmland is about 90%; the area of safe use of moderately-polluted cultivated land reaches 40 million mu, and the area of treatment and restoration reaches 10 million mu; Establish a specific agricultural product banned production area demarcation system for heavily polluted areas, and adjust the planting structure of heavily polluted arable land and return the farmland to forests and grassland area to reach 20 million mu. By 2030, the safe utilization rate of contaminated arable land will reach over 95%, and the overall improvement of the arable soil environmental quality in the country will be achieved. The supporting capacity for grain production and sustainable agricultural development will be significantly improved.
The comments pointed out that the market mechanism for the prevention and control of farmland pollution should be improved. Improve the investment and financing mechanism for arable land pollution prevention and control, set up a target performance appraisal system, and explore ways to attract social capital to actively participate in the management and rehabilitation of cultivated land pollution through government procurement services, third-party governance, government and social capital cooperation (PPP), and ex post subsidies in accordance with local conditions. , Gradually establish and improve the management system of cultivated land pollution remediation social service system. Encourage qualified areas to explore the implementation of integrated county (district) or regional integrated farmland pollution control and rehabilitation through third-party governance or PPP model.
According to the data provided by the land remediation center of the Ministry of Land and Resources, the output value of the soil remediation industry in China is still less than 1% of the total output value of the environmental protection industry. In developed countries, this proportion is more than 30%. According to the prediction made by the Ministry of Environmental Protection through the use of international traffic models to assess the impact of the "Tokuji", the scale of investment driven by the soil remediation market exceeded 5.7 trillion yuan.
