Environmental protection and resource conservation projects
Air pollutant emission reduction
Transform the production capacity of 850 million tons of cement clinkers and 460 million tons of coking capacity and about 4,000 non-ferrous industry furnaces towards clean production, and complete the transformation of 530 million tons of steel production capacity towards ultra-low emissions. Carry out the transformation for treatment of volatile organic compounds in petrochemical, chemical, coating, medicine, packaging, printing, and other key industries, and promote the clearance of bulk coal in key areas of air pollution prevention and control.
Water pollution control and water ecological restoration
Consolidate the achievements in the treatment of black and malodorous water bodies in cities that are at and above prefecture level, and promote the comprehensive treatment of 1,500 sections of black and malodorous water bodies in the built-up areas of 363 county-level cities. Strengthen the pollution control and ecological restoration of key lakes and reservoirs such as Taihu Lake, Chaohu Lake, Dianchi Lake, Danjiangkou Reservoir, Erhai Lake, Baiyangdian Lake, Poyang Lake, Dongting Lake, Chagan Lake, and Wuliangsuhai Lake (Ulansuhai Nur), implement comprehensive treatment of Yongding River and Mulan Creek, and accelerate the comprehensive treatment of groundwater overexploitation in North China and other key areas as well as the Yellow River Estuary.
Soil pollution control and safe utilization
Promote the demonstration of safe use of agricultural land in 100 counties with large areas of contaminated soil. Focus on chemical industry and nonferrous metal industry and implement 100 soil pollution source control projects.
Urban sewage and garbage treatment facilities
Build and renovate 80,000 km of sewage collection pipe network and increase sewage treatment capacity by 20 million m3/day. Accelerate the construction of waste incineration facilities and realize zero landfill of original waste in areas with daily clearing and transportation of urban household waste exceeding 300 tons. Carry out pilot projects for construction of small household waste incineration facilities.
Disposal of medical and hazardous waste and comprehensive utilization of solid waste
Shore up weaknesses in medical waste disposal facilities. Build 1 national and 6 regional centers for hazardous waste risk prevention and control technologies, and 20 regional centers for concentrated disposal of special hazardous waste. Focus on tailings and associated minerals, coal gangue, fly ash, and construction waste, and carry out 100 demonstration projects of comprehensive large-scale solid waste utilization.
Resource conservation and utilization
Implement major demonstration projects for industrial application of energy-saving and low-carbon technology, and carry out major projects such as near zero energy-consumption buildings, near zero carbon emission, and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). Carry out the construction of waste material recycling system in 60 large and medium-sized cities.
Education quality improvement and capacity expansion projects
Public accessible kindergarten
Build or rebuild 20,000 kindergartens and increase the capacity of public accessible kindergartens to enroll additional over 4 million students, particularly in areas with large population inflows, rural areas, and the “three regions and three prefectures” in extreme poverty.
Build or rebuild more than 4,000 primary and secondary schools, particularly in counties weak in education and areas with population inflows. Build 100 “national gateway schools” in border counties (regimental farms).
Vocational and technical education
Support the development of more than 200 high-standard vocational schools and more than 600 high-standard programs and support the building of a number of excellent secondary vocational schools and high-quality programs.
Strengthen the capabilities of basic research and collaborative innovation in higher education institutions under the initiative of developing top-class universities and academic disciplines, improve the conditions of 100 universities in central and western regions, and build a number of high-standard public health colleges and high-level normal schools.
Platforms aligning classroom education with real world needs
Focusing on integrated circuits, artificial intelligence, industrial internet, energy storage, and other key areas, build a number of joint training bases for graduate students, a batch of national innovation platforms and 100 high-standard, professional and open training bases that align classroom education with real world needs.
