Experts said that the information of the demonized PX project was not disclosed, causing people to panic.
the moving distance of the workbench was not less than 1500mm. Experts said that the demonized PX project increased demand by 13% every year. The information was not disclosed, causing people to panic.
on December 24, 2012, the Ningbo PX project was forced to stop; The PX EIA report was not made public in accordance with the law, making it difficult for the public to inquire, and the public was allergic to the PX project
following the Xiamen PX project and the Dalian PX project, which were suspended due to protests by local residents, the Ningbo Zhenhai PX project was also forced to be suspended on October 28. For a time, "PX project" became a sensitive word, which seemed like a rat crossing the street and everyone shouted. Some experts said that the PX project was demonized. In addition to the opposition, the PX project, which was forced to move from Xiamen to Zhangpu County, Fujian Province, was successfully started in may2009. On November 20 this year, according to an official of the Publicity Department of Zhangpu County Party committee, the Gulei PX project will be officially put into operation in years at the latest
it is understood that the PX project in Dalian, which had been shut down under pressure, also resumed production in a low-key manner and said it was in line with the planning of the municipal government. In the game between stop and build, some residents tried to get information about the PX project, but it was not smooth
this is an important reason why PX project has become a sensitive word and formed a group PX "allergy": with the gradual acceleration of China's urbanization, the information of PX project is not open and transparent enough, the interest appeal channel is not smooth, and the public participation is missing
"it is highly toxic and carcinogenic, and can cause infertility and newborn distortion. Once it leaks or explodes, it will kill everything like an atomic bomb. According to international regulations, the plant must be 100 kilometers away from the urban area." Since October, Xujun, a 23-year-old accountant in Ningbo, has been seeing "technical posts" about the PX project in Zhenhai, calling on him to take to the streets to protest against px
although he did not know what PX was, on the afternoon of October 28, Xu Jun joined thousands of Ningbo citizens in protesting against the Zhenhai PX project
on the same day, Ningbo municipal government issued a notice saying that it was determined not to enter the PX project. Following the relocation of Xiamen PX project to Gulei in 2007 and the announcement of shutdown and relocation of Dalian PX project in 2011, PX has become a "street mouse" called by everyone
in contrast, in May, 2009, the PX project relocated from Xiamen to Gulei Town, Zhangpu County, Fujian was successfully started. On November 20 this year, it was learned that the project will be put into operation in the next year
relevant people believe that the reason behind the panic about PX project is the insufficient disclosure of PX information
px is demonized
Jin Yong believes that the reason why Xiamen PX has become an environmental protection event has nothing to do with its toxicity, but there are many interest games behind it. "PX is not a new technology. Since the 1950s, China has started to produce px. This technology is widely used in chemical fiber and textile raw materials. As the largest producer and consumer, China has more than a dozen mature PX industrial bases in China." On November 4, Jin Yong, academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering and President of the Institute of chemical science and technology of Tsinghua University, said
2007, after the outbreak of the Xiamen PX incident, Jin Yong was invited by the Xiamen municipal government to work as one of the PX incident emergency response experts in Haicang. So far, he can not understand why the Xiamen PX incident has clearly "made a good start", but why it has become a "classic case" of anti PX around the world
Jin Yong said that internationally, there is no specific limit on the distance between the PX production area and the residential area, and there is no way to say that the PX production area must be more than 100 kilometers away from the residential area. "The United States, Singapore, Japan and South Korea are all major PX production countries, and their production plants are close to the living area, which is only a few kilometers away at most."
Jin Yong believes that the reason why Xiamen PX has become an environmental protection event has nothing to do with the toxicity of the product itself, but there are many interest games behind it, "PX is almost as toxic as gasoline"
repeatedly contacted zhaoyufen, a member of the CPPCC National Committee, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a professor of the Department of chemistry of Xiamen University, as a representative of the PX opposition, and refused to interview
"you can debate. If you say how toxic PX is, you can come up with a basis. You can confront each other and the media can supervise." Jin Yong said that PX's departure from Xiamen was not a "danger" as mentioned in zhaoyufen's proposal, but Gulei Town, which has a good deep-water port, is more suitable to build a factory than Haicang
last year, during the PX incident in Dalian, Jin Yong was once again invited to be an emergency response expert. He put forward his opinion, "if you can store PX and carry it back and forth, it will be more smelly and dangerous. Now it is generally used after production. If you want to transport it, you need to build a PX warehouse. It will be safer not to move it."
in the face of rising public protests, the Dalian municipal government did not listen to Jin Yong's opinions and proposed that "Fujia Dahua PX project must be discontinued and relocated"
"nowadays, PX has become a sensitive symbol in China. It has become a 'rat crossing the street shouting at everyone'. In fact, this project has been demonized." Jin Yong believes that the solution lies in the communication between the government, enterprises and the masses. The project information is open and transparent. The government guides citizens to widely participate in the project initiation, environmental assessment and production construction of enterprise projects. "Without mystery, it will not be terrible."
Zhangpu PX natural production experience
"when I visited the PX factory, I found that the residential areas are hundreds of meters or several kilometers away from the factory, and the water used for PX production can be directly used to raise fish, so I wouldn't panic if I knew the truth."
in May 2009, the PX project moved from Xiamen to Gulei Town, Zhangpu County, Fujian Province started. On November 20 this year, an official from the Publicity Department of Zhangpu County Party committee said that the Gulei PX project would be officially put into operation in years at the latest
Gulei Petrochemical has become the first petrochemical project in China where the public fully participates in the EIA. Today, a cement road with a width of tens of meters runs through Gulei Town, along which stand several kilometers of oil pipelines and chemical raw material storage lead tanks
on October 22, Fujian reported the "miracle of speed" of the PX project in Gulei Town, Zhangpu County, Fujian Province: "in one year, all the approval work of the PX project was completed... It took less than three years to start the project construction, and it entered the sprint stage of production."
2007, after Xiamen PX project was expelled, in the first half of 2008, Fujian provincial government decided to move the project to Gulei town. In September of that year, the Gulei regional development and construction plan was approved by the provincial government. In march2009, the national development and Reform Commission officially approved Gulei PX and PTA projects
according to the plan, "after being put into operation, the distance between the petrochemical downstream industrial zone and the residential area shall be controlled at least 3km, the distance between the petrochemical midstream industrial zone and the residential area shall be controlled at least 8km, and the distance between the petrochemical upstream industrial zone and the residential area shall be controlled at least 12km"
honghesheng, a villager from Xingzi village, Gulei Town, will move with the villagers to the "new port city" newly built by the government 18 kilometers away. However, the plan does not clearly define the safe distance between the PX production area and the residential area
"I was scared and angry at the beginning. At that time, I didn't know what PX was. However, the news of Xiamen's collective protest in 2007 that expelled the Tenglong aromatics PX plant in Haicang District of the city has been flying all over the world." On November 19, villager honghesheng said that when the PX project was settled in Gulei town in early 2008, his idea was "do you think the people here are bullied?"
"land requisition, relocation and sea reclamation directly touched the production and life of the masses. At first, the masses did not understand it and were not allowed to enter even the door." Hongzhenyuan, leader of the publicity group for the requisition and relocation of Gulei Town, said
2008, at the time of site selection, Zhangpu County Government organized County, town and village cadres to go to Gulei town to distribute knowledge brochures about Px, and invited experts to give lectures in response to PX doubts and expectations. A special column of "major chemical projects" was set up in the media to invite technicians of Tenglong company and villagers to participate in the on-site interactive dialogue
in july2008, the PX project in Gulei town was launched. Zhangpu County government transferred 39 section level cadres to form a working group, stationed in 13 villages in Gulei Town, in a group of three, to carry out the persuasion work of "one household, one policy", so as to understand the villagers' ideas and ensure the smooth commencement of the project on may8,2009
chenweibin is one of the representatives of local enterprises. As a major abalone farmer in Daizai village, Gulei Town, he participated in the Symposium on the government's PX project. "Through investigation in PX plants such as Singapore and Nanjing Yangzi, he found that the residential area is hundreds of meters or several kilometers away from the plant area, and the environment is very beautiful. The water used for PX production can be used for direct fish culture. Once you know the truth, you won't panic."
Dalian PX low-key resumption of production
an executive of Dalian Fujia group confirmed that the company's PX project has resumed production, "as far as I know, our production has never stopped"
the PX project in Dalian that was stopped has resumed production in a low-key manner. "One year later, Fujia Dahua's PX plant continued to produce, and there was no news of relocation." Dalian photographer Wang Jun (not his real name) said that he was one of the promoters of the protests last year. Before the resumption of production, he did not get information about the commencement of the project
on August 14 last year, tens of thousands of Dalian citizens took to the streets to protest against the PX production project invested and operated by Fujia Dahua
on November 23 this year, at the gate of Dalian Fujia Dahua Company, the security guard carefully checked the personnel entering the factory. Behind the factory, a thousands of meters long coastal flood dike was being built, and dozens of lead tanks were built around it to store chemical raw materials. Thick smoke rose from the sky over FUJIA, and the air was filled with a choking sour smell
a staff member of Fujia said that Fujia Dahua has resumed PX production for nearly a year, and has been keeping a low profile, "PX within the company has become a taboo topic, and employees are strictly prohibited from divulging information about the resumption of production"
on the same day, we got a letter from the Management Committee of Dalian Jinzhou new area to Dalian customs, which said: "after the shutdown and rectification of Fujia Dahua PX project, the hidden dangers threatening the safety of PX tanks have been eliminated. After the inspection, evaluation and acceptance by 13 experts including the Institute of hazardous chemicals of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the experts believe that the project has met the conditions for safe production."
according to the letter, the opinion of Dalian municipal Party committee and government on Fujia PX project is that "while actively promoting the relocation work, safety hazards are completely eliminated and production is agreed to resume". The letter was signed on december7,2011, less than four months away from Dalian citizens walking in the streets to protest against px
an executive of Dalian Fujia group confirmed that the company's PX project has indeed resumed production. "As far as I know, our production has never stopped. How can we stop the orders of more than 10 billion a year? Who will bear such a big loss?"
the executive disclosed that last year, the group's total output value was 26billion yuan, of which the PX output value was 20billion yuan, and the individual tax paid to Dalian amounted to more than 3billion yuan. "Billions of PX project revenue each year will flow into the group's real estate projects. We also want to move, but we can't afford to move, and the government will not give this money."
"we implement it according to the overall arrangement of the municipal government. When and where the municipal government arranges us to move, we will certainly implement it." On December 17, the head of Fujia Dahua office said that the current PX project of the company's resumption of production "conforms to the big plan of the municipal government"
the person in charge said that the environmental impact assessment report and the approval procedures for resumption of production of the company's projects are complete. Whether to publish them publicly is up to the municipal government, which has no right to publish them. The Dalian municipal government office refused to respond
"I don't know the news of the resumption of production. Just as we didn't know when FUJIA's factory passed the environmental assessment and what PX it produced, we were always in the dark." Wang Jun said
