5222.38 吨 illegal transfer of chromium slag dumping 288,400 tons of chromium residue entrenched Nanpan River 20 years, despite the Ministry of Water Resources Pearl River Water Resources Commission August 17, said Qujing “Chrome pollution incident, “the investigation is over, but the incident is still behind the dense fog.
Morning Post correspondent based in Yunnan, Guizhou provinces, the survey found that the source of the incident Chromium – Luliang Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Luliang Chemical”) is not just “management is not Yan, “let alone” innocent “, but knowing that no qualified business agreement, incapable of managing on the basis of chromium residue, to encourage the transfer of illegal dumping, the existence of subjective intent. And the company had previously received nearly 50 million state grant funds, lagging behind the progress of construction related projects, and processing capability to meet the design requirements, resulting in safe disposal of chromium slag not go as planned.
the same time, regulators blame for the accident. Knowing the local environmental protection departments in the southern wall of chromium slag heap river there are significant risks, and there have been cases of serious leakage, failure to remove hidden dangers, and up to two months, failed to detect the illegal territorial enterprises transfer of dumping toxic substances, regulatory useless.
4880 million in subsidies
chromium slag contains calcium chromate (hexavalent chromium is) has a strong carcinogenic and mutagenic properties, Heavy metals are hazardous waste. The chromium slag arising primarily from the chromium industry and small businesses chromium sodium dichromate production process. Chromium salt industry in China have long been classified as heavily polluted industries.
2005 October, National Development and Reform Commission jointly with the former State Environmental Protection Administration issued a “comprehensive treatment of chromium residue pollution program,” launched the largest-scale treatment of chromium slag pollution action, and from 2006 specifically set aside huge sums of money left over since the disposal of chromium slag.
Nanpanjiang at a distance of less than 10 meters of the river, Luliang chemical residue will be about 288,400 tons of chromium easy stacking. A corps of Yunnan Environmental Monitoring information, Luliang twice won the National Development and Reform Commission Chemical “resource conservation and environmental protection projects from the central budget investment plan” support, which in 2006 was 20.2 million yuan in 2010 was 2860 million, the project requires the completion of the time were 2006 and 2010. The companies were reported to the “140,000 tons of chromium residue accumulation of harmless use of engineering” and “148,400 tons of chromium residue harmless project”, namely the company’s Phase I, Phase II project.
a subsidy to capital, Luliang chemical did not report as required to complete the project. August 13, 2011, Yunnan Environmental Monitoring Corps of Luliang chemical examination revealed that the company designed annual processing of 50,000 tons of chromium residue of a project, the actual annual processing capacity of only 20,000 tons, does not meet the design requirements; The designed annual processing of 60,000 tons of chromium residue second phase for the construction of some of the buildings are based, according to application materials, the project should be completed in 2010.
yesterday, general manager of Luliang chemical soup and then Yang interview with Post reporter, said that a project failed to meet the design requirements due to design problems, mainly related to the use of patented technology and the actual differences, For the serious lag in the second phase, he explained as “national examination and approval of late,” adding that this is not “a problem” because “say over.”
soup and then Yang also said the NDRC’s grant funds are appropriated by the current first phase of the grants received from all but two of the funds have not yet take the whole project, but he did not disclose less the amount of money.
Luliang Chemical “subjective intent”
soup and then Yang interview with Post reporters, said that since the 2004 acquisition of Luliang chemicals, the plant annual increase of 20,000 -3 ten thousand tons of chromium residue, and these all do Chromium “utilization”, he said that as the ironworks utilization of sintered iron and cement mineralizing agent, the business of the company with some iron signed a contract for the supply of chromium slag. Needs as they deal with the cost of chromium residue, so Luliang chemical Sinotrans Chromium not only did not charge but bear the transportation costs. “All of the new chromium slag are Sinotrans, the power of cooperation and three in the case of this kind.” Yang said Tom again.
soup and then the three forces, said Yang is Xingyi City, Guizhou Province Sanli Fuel Limited (hereinafter referred to as the “three forces fuel”), according to the company’s staff briefing, the three main fuel in power production and coke trade. Agreement before the soup and then force the fuel Yang visited three field trips, the Post reporter found the soup and then Yang’s visit shady.
8 14, Sanli fuel charge Yuan Branch received the EPA investigation, Xingyi, said his company did not chromium slag processing power, he did not know the dangers of shipment, only to know “can be to engage in sintering, “when the carrier came to Luliang chemical introduced after the soup and then he brought Sanli Yang and others near Xingyi fuel Hao Wei (Group) Wei Chang Smelting Limited (” Chang Wei Company “) plant in the region, after a brief inspection, that the soup and then Young’s” There sinter equipment, shed chromium slag heap, the company’s normal production. ” Tom Young has insisted that he then “to the three power plants.”
According to Yang, then accompanied by soup and then examine the three power generation of fuel wood workers often recalled, soup and then Yang, Yuan subjects such as Chang Wei four drove to the company, stayed in the factory is only about 20 minutes left did not ask to see information such as business qualification. The Morning Post correspondent found that Chang Wei’s door a prominent sign on end, when one can see the door.
contract signing process is strange. Tom Young, who then in the “three forces fuel study,” A few days later, on May 28 and signed a three forces “of chromium residue supply contract.” According to Tom Young and on behalf of the wood often re-introduction, May 27, Tom’s office in Luliang signed his name, followed by the carrier force to the three fuel, the company responsible Yuan Branch on May 28 in the contract signed, which the carrier is not responsible for delivery of the contract employees of both companies.
Qujing Environmental Protection Agency, according to the survey, the first carrier to pull the vehicle from chromium Luliang chemical residue in the April 28, the power of the fuel contract with three month before, in other words, Luliang chemical not knowing the premise of the receiving unit, the acquiescence of chromium residue transfer up to a month.
yesterday, the Post reporter Tom Young again made clear that when the contract did not know Sanli fuel processing qualifications of chromium residue, he says it is a phenomenon of chromium residue utilization, such as ask for a qualified, have had the card, then “the possibility of co-small.”
Under the regulations, producers of hazardous waste transported to other places, must out, the acceptance of environmental protection authorities to apply in both the approval of the environmental protection department, in order to receive transfer manifest. However, in this case, Luliang chemical transport more than 140 cars Chromium, 5222.38 tons, were not to apply to the environmental protection department.
8 16, the Yunnan Provincial Environmental Protection Office in the disposal of chromium slag contamination noted in the submissions, “according to my Office investigated the accident caused the contamination of Yunnan Luliang Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. The existence of acts of subjective intent, has an inescapable responsibility, it is recommended Qujing government instructed the relevant departments, the company’s legal representative shall be investigated and officers liability of the parties, while further depth to the accident investigation, authorities investigated regulatory responsibility of the persons. “
EPA really” weak “regulation?
dumping in the illegal transfer of chromium residue, causing environmental pollution incident, the various provisions, such as a piece of paper, the local environmental protection department of regulatory formality. Nanpan riverside why chromium slag heap in the environmental protection department under the eyes can stay for 20 years?
Qujing EPA regulations publicity chief Qiao Xingrong, told reporters that the environmental protection department knew that the chromium slag heap in the South River is a major risk plate, otherwise there will not be repeated to the environmental protection departments at all levels monitoring, but the environmental protection department of law enforcement is difficult, means a single, in addition to a fine of no other way, so the removal of hidden “powerless.”
However, an environmental protection system, told reporters that the current environment means not a single department, the key to have the determination, and the enterprise in the local “influence”, “we can apply without water , power outage, Dulu, “the source said the company is enough to deal with incorrigible.
Luliang county environmental protection bureau, told reporters Zi-ping Zhong, EPA periodically chromium slag dump sites upstream and downstream water quality monitoring Nanpanjiang showed that the South did not hexavalent chromium plate river exceeded.
the environmental protection system, told reporters, “I have been to the other side of chromium slag heap from Nanpanjiang so close, obvious signs of penetration, how may not be exceeded.” He also said that environmental protection departments have chosen to Where the results of the monitoring point is very important.
In fact, close to the chromium slag heap Nanpanjiang there had been danger. According to environmental monitoring Qujing detachment of a written record, August 7, 2007, inspectors found that the chromium slag heap due to rainfall seepage to Nanpanjiang, and serious leakage. Similarly, the leakage incident to administrative penalties in the end.
8 17, Pearl River Water Resources Commission for the release of chromium contamination survey, Luliang chemical chromium slag heap field range, due to leakage and other reasons, hexavalent chromium were found to contain.
far, Qujing the aftermath of chromium residue contamination continues, the loss has not yet released statistics. According Qilin EPA issued a document showing that Qilin department township (town) and the relevant economic loss caused by disposal (management) costs arising from work (as of August 15) summary report reached 1,852,842.13 yuan, It does not contain indirect damages.
“As long as this thing one day without end, the cost will increase every day.” Qilin Sanbaozhen Zhang Ying Lu Guoliang village committee secretary, told reporters yesterday, their village is still dredging.
