CHINESE CITY ESTABLISHES "NO-COAL ZONES" TO CURB POLLUTION
On October 11, the Shanxi government announced plans to establish "no-coal zones" in Datong, a major coal-producing city in the province, to curb pollution. The "no-coal zones," in which the storage, sale, and direct combustion of all kinds of coal will be prohibited, will cover 39 square miles of the city. As a result, households in Datong will switch to cleaner gas heating this winter. For the full story, see https://uk.reuters.com/article/us-china-pollution-coal/china-coal-city-….
