Crackdown on industrial pollution
(01-22 18:35)

Beijing is to ban the construction of new oil refining, steel, cement and thermal power plants. It will also expand existing projects to try to reduce air pollution.
The local government said the ban would take effect from March. The city government's policy document also commits Beijing to cutting total emissions of small particulates -- a major component of air pollution -- by 5 percent this year. --RTHK
