Auto Industry to Take Full Blame for Beijing Toxic Smog

China’s auto association said that it is unfair to blame the auto industry for the toxic smog in Beijing, when the coal-fired power plants should bear responsibility.

“The auto industry has already borne too much undeserved responsibility in recent years with the purchase and usage restrictions,” said Ye Shengji, deputy secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. “With the toxic smog, the auto industry is once again being blamed and scapegoated as the main culprit, which is unreasonable.”

These comments only increase the automakers concern that the government will impose more measures to reduce the growth of the vehicle population, which last year reached 240 million, more than the number reached in 1999.

On February 6th, the State Council issued a timetable for stricter fuel emissions regulations which should be adopted by the end of 2017 and also required oil refiners to produce cleaner fuel to match the stricter EU standards.

According to Beijing municipal government data, tailpipe emissions accounted for 22% of the PM2.5, which means that vehicular exhaust is not the one to take full blame for the toxic smog. Other major pollution sources would be the factory emissions, the coal-generated power plants, construction sites and surface dust.
