Chemical production curbed near Expo site

EIGHTY-TWO companies producing dangerous chemical products near the World Expo site have stopped production or transferred it to areas outside the Outer Ring Road, local authorities said today.

This will lead to a decrease of 282,000 tons of chemicals in production, use and storage along the Huangpu River, Expo site and downtown area, to ensure the safety of the Expo, said an official surnamed Hu with the Administration of Work Safety.

In addition, the work safety bureau will closely monitor the transport of flammable and highly poisonous substances during the six-month Expo which opens on May 1.

By the end of 2012, the companies producing or storing chemical substances within the Outer Ring Road will move into industrial parks across the city, involving 282 businesses.
