Capital city Taiyuan of northern China's Shanxi province pledged to dismantle 638 coal-burned boilers within a limit time, announced the municipal government in a statement recently.
The city will ban all coal-fired boilers with capacity of 20 t/h and below in the urban districts as well as three counties around.
Of all the involved boilers in total capacity of 2,810 t/h, 489 are heating boilers totaling t/h, while boilers running for all year round reached 149, with gross capacity of 630 t/h.
By June 30, all coal-fired boilers should be removed and alternative clean energy need to be used before end-October.
Upon completion of the demolition work, Taiyuan can cut emission of 8,000 tonnes sulfur dioxide, 7,600 tonnes nitrogen oxide and 5,000 tonnes dust.
