In order to comprehensively strengthen the prevention and control of VOCs pollution, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Transport, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, and the National Energy Administration jointly issued the "Thirteenth Five-Year" Volatile Organic Compound Pollution Prevention and Control working plan".
The overall requirements of the plan: focus on improving ambient air quality, focus on key areas, focus on key industries and key pollutants, promote coordinated emission reduction of VOCs and NOx, strengthen the control of new pollutant emissions, and implement fixed Pollution source pollution discharge permits, comprehensively strengthen basic capacity building and policy support guarantees, adjust measures to local conditions, highlight key points, source prevention and control, implement policies separately, establish a long-term mechanism for VOCs pollution prevention and control, and promote continuous improvement of ambient air quality and green industrial development.
The main goal of the plan: by 2020, establish and improve the VOCs pollution prevention and control management system with the improvement of ambient air quality as the core, and implement key regions and key VOCs pollution reduction emissions by more than 10%. Through coordinated control with NOx and other pollutants, continuous improvement of ambient air quality is achieved.
The plan requires that industrial coating VOCs control should be increased, comprehensively promote the VOC emission control of industrial coatings in the manufacturing industries of containers, automobiles, wooden furniture, ships, construction machinery, steel structures, coils, etc., and comprehensively promote the use of environmentally friendly water with low VOCs emissions paint. Among them, in the wood furniture manufacturing industry, by the end of 2020, the replacement ratio of water-based paint will reach more than 60%, in the construction machinery manufacturing industry, by the end of 2020, the use ratio of water-based paint and high-solid paint will reach more than 30%, and the steel structure manufacturing industry will be by the end of 2020. Previously, the use ratio of water-based paint and high-solid paint reached more than 50%.
It is reported that the sales volume in 2018 was 17.468 million tons, and the national paint sales volume in 2019 was 24.161 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 38.32%.
