The Jiangsu section of the Yangtze River, winding 432.5 kilometers, connects nanjing, Zhenjiang, Yangzhou, Taizhou, Changzhou, Wuxi, Suzhou and Nantong along the river, with a total length of about 1169 kilometers, conserved the area along the River and provided 80% of the production and living water for Jiangsu.Joint efforts should be made to protect the environment while avoiding large-scale development.After several years of improvement and protection, the ecological environment along the Jiangsu section of the Yangtze River has improved significantly, laying a solid foundation for further high-quality development.Nantong Langshan National Forest Park in Jiangsu province is picturesque.But six years ago, Nantong was a different place.Once, nantong port terminal management chaos, disorderly development of small and medium-sized enterprises, residents and optional drainage, makes the Wolf mountain, junshan, sword, Huang Nishan, ma on shan mountain and mountain area of 14 kilometers along the river “gold coast” once pollution is serious, “binjiang river, near water is not water”, affected the surrounding residents living environment.At the end of 2016, Nantong forced industrial upgrading and urban transformation with ecological restoration and protection.Nantong Port Group Co., Ltd. person in charge of the introduction, under the government’s leading promotion, downstream new modern container terminals, the overall relocation of The Wolf Mountain port.As a result, 203 “disorderly and dirty” enterprises were shut down in nantong wushan mountain and the area along the Yangtze River, and 5.5 kilometers of shoreline was vacated and repaired.This section of the Yangtze River coastline has since embarked on the path of butterfly transformation.Not far from The Wolf Mountain, Junshan, also belongs to the Wolf Mountain tourist resort.At the southeast foot of Junshan mountain, there is a “paradise” with an area of about 40 hectares.”Junshan Natural ecological Reserve implements hierarchical management, which is divided into three zones: ecological conservation zone, ecological buffer zone and ecological pilot zone.As a core biodiversity area, the ecological conservation area is closed and no unauthorized entry is allowed.”Nantong Wolf Mountain tourism resort management office deputy director Lv Jianhua introduced.According to the survey, there are 468 kinds of plants and 360 kinds of animals in the ecological conservation zone, which is praised by experts and scholars as a rare “wild life gene pool” on the river and sea plain.In addition to building natural ecological reserves, Jiangsu has also innovatively promoted the construction of ecological safety buffer zones.In 2020, Jiangsu first built seven ecological safety buffer zone demonstration projects in five cities along the Yangtze River: Nanjing, Changzhou, Suzhou, Nantong and Taizhou.In 2021, the scope of the project will be expanded to eight cities along the Yangtze River, and the ecological safety buffer zone will be expanded to 38.According to reports, jiangsu province has effectively reduced the pollution load of the Yangtze River, restored and expanded the area of wetlands, and played an important role in building a strong ecological protection barrier along the Yangtze River by implementing measures such as ecological environment restoration and industrial enterprises withdrawing.According to the jiangsu Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, biodiversity in Jiangsu has been further enriched, and the distribution area of Oriental white stork and other national key protected wild animals has been further expanded in Jiangsu.The emergence of water fern, horsemouth fish, tiger frog and other species indicates that the ecological environment in Jiangsu province is being effectively restored, and the food chain is gradually tending to integrity and stability.Water transportation along the Yangtze River is convenient. Enterprises along the Yangtze River, while developing rapidly, also need to take responsibility for protecting the ecology of the Yangtze River.Shagang Group, located in Zhangjiagang City, Jiangsu Province, developed rapidly by relying on the convenient water transportation of the Yangtze River. At the same time, it also accumulated a large amount of steel slag on the bank of the Yangtze River, which polluted the surrounding soil and water and threatened the water ecological environment of the Yangtze River.In order to completely clean up the steel slag stacked in the open air, Shagang Group set up a special leading group to investigate every production line and every working procedure, sorting out more than 570 problems and solving them one by one.During the restoration process, workers will dig away the contaminated soil layer, replace it with a layer of fertile new soil, and carry out a project called “see gaps and insert green” to replant green plants in time.Today, the steel slag yard beside the Yangtze River has taken on a new look: green grass, fragrant earth…Shagang’s transformation is also an epitome of jiangsu’s efforts to protect Yangtze River ecology and promote high-quality development.In the past six years, the CPC Jiangsu Provincial Committee and the provincial government have carried out many investigations along the river, held many on-site promotion meetings, and made systematic arrangements for the protection of the joint grasp.According to the relevant person in charge of the Department of Ecology and Environment of Jiangsu Province, Jiangsu province comprehensively focused on prominent ecological and environmental problems along the Yangtze River, strictly implemented the rectification responsibility system and sales number system, cleaned up and renovated 596 riverfront utilization projects and 117 illegal docks, evacuated 60.3 kilometers of riverfront, and closed down more than 4,600 low-end backward chemical production enterprises according to law.The number of chemical industrial parks along the River was reduced from 37 to 19.In November 2021, 19 of the 20 sections of the main stream of the Yangtze River in Jiangsu reached Class ⅱ water quality, and 98.3% of the sections of major tributaries reached or exceeded Class ⅲ water quality. The production shoreline gradually became an ecological corridor, and the overall quality of the ecological environment was improved.Green water around green mountains, coordinated to promote high-quality development of strict environmental protection work, so that jiangsu section of the Yangtze River to reproduce green water and green mountains, but also promote the high-quality development of Jiangsu.Since 2016, Jiangsu has made it clear that any project that violates the Yangtze River protection requirements, fails to meet the national industrial policy, planning and site selection requirements, or deteriorates regional environmental quality as a result of its landing, will not be approved by the eia.Data show that over the past six years, Jiangsu province has rejected more than 30 projects with huge investment volume that do not meet the requirements of Yangtze River protection.Structural adjustment of chemical industry is not a simple “addition and subtraction”.As the first chemical industrial park in Jiangsu province to be integrated and closed, Zhangjiagang Dongsha Chemical Industrial Park was closed and transformed due to its low industrial level and heavy environmental pollution. As 37 chemical enterprises were involved, it once faced problems such as enterprise relocation, closure negotiation and closure financing.After years of efforts, dongsha Chemical Park not only realized the overall closure, but also focused on the development of intelligent equipment, new energy, new materials and other industries on this basis.As a matter of fact, green transformation and safe development have been steadily coordinated throughout the Jiangsu section of the Yangtze River.In 2021, Jiangsu will add 25 national green factories, 3 green parks, 9 green supply chain management demonstration enterprises, 8 green design demonstration enterprises, and 186 provincial-level green factories.The jiangsu provincial party committee secretary cheng-lung wu said that jiangsu will “total catch big protection, don’t make big development”, unswervingly promote the jiangsu section of the Yangtze river economic belt of ecological priority, green low carbon high quality development, resolutely carry “to be leading the way, be a demonstration, at the forefront” glorious mission, to write “strong rich beauty high” new jiangsu modernization new chapter.Today, the quality of ecological environment along the Jiangsu section of the Yangtze River has been significantly improved. Finless porpoises are jumping happily on the river surface, and a harmonious picture of green banks and clear water is slowly unfolding.(By He Cong and Wang Weijian) People’s Daily (April 06, 2022 edition 13)
