Air pollution control can be understood in three aspects. One refers to the use of laws to limit or prohibit the spread of pollutants. This requires determining which substances should be restricted and to what extent. In addition, it is necessary to study the impact of harmful substances on human health, damage to property, harm to aesthetics, the interaction of different pollutants in the atmosphere, and the migration and transformation laws of pollutants in the atmosphere. The second aspect refers to the meaning of "prevention". What methods are used to prevent air pollution from occurring? In addition to eliminating pollution sources that severely damage the environment and ecology, some methods can also reduce the amount of pollutants discharged to a level that does not seriously pollute the atmosphere. The third aspect refers to using scientific methods to deal with pollutants that already exist in the air.
At present, the main air pollutants are the soot, carbon dioxide, and sulfide produced by burning fossil fuels, as well as the carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides emitted from automobile exhaust. China’s past economic growth relied on fossil fuel consumption to a large extent, causing serious air pollution problems. Solving the contradiction between economic growth and pollution improvement has become the key to China’s development as an ecological civilization. Since 2013, China has taken many measures to address air pollution and has achieved many successes. However, air quality is still not optimistic, and it is still necessary to continue to increase efforts to prevent and control air pollution. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide the latest research on the progress, challenges, and future development prospects of China's air pollution control. Manuscripts on various aspects of China’s air pollution control are welcome.
