Currently, major air pollutants in China include sulfur dioxide, soot, industrial dust and nitrogen oxides. In 2010, industrial flue gas emission volume footed up to 47.52 trillion cubic meters, 1.38 times of that in 2003.
Flue gas treatment industry has become one of the pillars of China’s environmental protection industry, with its market size soaring to RMB 38.7 billion in 2010 from RMB 18.5 billion in 2006 and AAGR reaching 15.9%.
The demand for flue gas treatment in China is primarily from such sectors as electric power and steel, of which the demand from power sector accounts for over 80%. The electric power industry of China features a high degree of concentration among China Huaneng Group, China Datang Corporation, China Guodian Corporation, China Huadian Corporation and China Power Investment Group, all of which have set up their own subsidiaries for flue gas treatment. Therefore, the flue gas treatment subsidiaries under the major power corporations take the lion’s share of China’s flue gas treatment industry, while the private firms are occupying more and more market shares through introduction of advanced know-how on treatment of flue gas and application of flexible business strategy.
