Pollution in China
China’s booming economy and huge population are experiencing some very difficult environmental challenges for a nation of some 1.2 billion people. Water pollution and waste management are among the most urgent issues.
China is not a water-rich land unlike many other countries whom have large quantities of water in abundance. Chinas per-person ratio of water supply is actually quite low. The water that does exist is not distributed evenly across China’s massive landscape so too are treatment facilities adequate to mitigate high levels of agricultural and industrial contamination.
China generates over 3.5 million tons of sewage waste per day. To treat just 50% of that amount, they would need to capitalise in 10,000 treatment services. There is some modern wastewater treatment plants and sanitation systems that do exist, but many more are essential.
Perhaps 50% of all Chinese—a astounding 600 million people—drink water that is contaminated by human or animal waste. These people are open to waterborne disease and countless human health concerns related to the use of polluted water.
China’s major river systems display the majority of the problem. It seems that perhaps 70% of their water is so polluted that it has been regarded as unsafe for human consumption. In addition to untreated sewage released into these waterways, high-growth industries such as textiles, paper manufacturing, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals account for a large share of this pollution.
At dumps, toxic runoff often percolates through the earth to contaminate groundwater aquifers. Untreated mining and industrial waste leaves some waters contaminated with such high metal content that they literally run red with rust-colored water. Lead levels have been recorded in Chinese rivers that are some 44 times greater than accepted norms.
Clean un polluted water is essential to the nation’s agrarian economy, which consumes about 75% of China’s total water resource. Heavy metals that are found in water can be taken up by food crops grown with that water and may cause cancer, kidney stones, or other health problems.
China’s cash crop—rice—has seen reduced yields in some locales and many consumers are wary of eating food that they believe was grown with tainted water.
According to the United Nation‘s Food and Agricultural Organization, China also is the world’s largest consumer of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers. When an excessive amount of nitrogen and other chemicals used in fertilizers is introduced into a waterway, an imbalance of organic materials can occur which leads to increased algae blooms. Increased algae blooms negatively affect the water supply and have already led to the temporary closure of drinking water plants in some areas of China.
There is solutions available for China’s problems, but yet implementing them on the required scale will be a massive undertaking.
Arctic Blue Waters supply and export bulk water to regions in abundance.
Arctic Blue Waters is seeking a major beverage manufacturer/distributor in China that would consider bottling our Arctic bulk water from Alaska. The bottling plant of this firm should be within 100 km of water storage tanks located at the Humen Sea Port, Dogguan, China. The raw pure Arctic bulk water could be transported in food-grade tanks by truck from the storage tanks at the port to the bottling plant.
