Seminar on the Implementation of LDAR was HeldPost date: 2017-07-27

On the afternoon of July 26, 2017, the Innovation Center for Clean-air Solutions (secretariat of Clean Air Alliance of China) held a seminar on the implementation of LDAR and the proposed measures for management problems. The seminar discussed LDAR's existing problems, management difficulties and recommendations. Yan Gang from the Pollutant Emissions Control Division of Ministry of Environmental Protection; Zou Bing, deputy chief engineer of Qingdao Safety Engineering Research Institute; and Zhou Zhen from Beijing Municipal Institution of Environmental Protection attended the meeting. Yanshan Petrochemical and Beijing Tongpu Oasis companies also joined in the discussion.

At the meeting, Dr. Li Jing from Innovation Center for Clean-air Solutions reviewed the implementation and development of the situation of domestic and international LDAR management. Then, she analyzed the problems in domestic LDAR management through the example of Xinyang Technology and Huari New-Materials (company name).

Subsequently, representatives from Yanshan Petrochemical introduced the status of Yanshan Petrochemical to carry out LDAR work, and raised some advice for the issues in management process and policy implementation. Then, Zou Bin from Qingdao Safety Engineering Research Institute and Wang Haitao from TongPu Oasis analyzed the existing problems of LDAR from the perspective of policy executive. Zhou Zhen, from Beijing Municipal Institution of Environmental Protection, according to the work experience of Beijing city, made recommendations on the future of LDAR policy design. Finally, Yan Gang, from the Pollutant Emissions Control Division of the Ministry of Environmental Protection said that, in the next stage, for the implementation of LDAR management, the Ministry of Environmental Protection will organize the relevant research and gradually develop a management system more complete and reasonable.

Today, petrochemical, chemical and other industries must implement LDAR to reduce the emissions of non-organized VOCs to meet the national policy. However, in the implementation process, the LDAR market is incomplete and process management is relatively weak. So, finding a way to deal with these problems is the key to promising LDAR for emission reduction. The meeting collected and explored the different views of LDAR’s existing issues and management proposals from exports, enterprise and third party companies, in order to give assistance to the local LDAR management and support the promotion of policies issued by the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
