Xinhua, VECC-SEPA News (9 Aug 2004)

BEIJING, CHINA: The national capital Beijing reported 26 days with good air quality in July this year, 6 days more than last July, according to statistics.

According to the municipal environmental protection bureau, active cold air activities and frequent rains contributed greatly to the drop in pollutants in the air. Pollutants are mainly particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide.

As of July 31, Beijing reported 130 days with fresh air, one day more than last year's same period. With environmental protection efforts, Beijing hopes to see 227 days with fresh air.

To reach its goal, Beijing will continue its efforts in air pollution control by reducing vehicle emission, pollution at construction sites and industrial pollution, said a source with the municipal environmental protection bureau.
