  • Background
    • 30 million people employed in manufacturing there.
    • located in SE China next to the South China Sea.
    • China's Pearl River Delta
      • Causes
        • Home to the sixth largest container terminal globally
        • Shenzehn produces 70% of the world's photocopiers
        • Dongguan - 80 000 people employed in a single factory making running shoes
      • Consequences
        • Air pollution:
          • Factories produce SO2, CO2 and NOxs. These form acid rain.
            • In 2007, 45% of all rain in the province was classified as acid rain, and 2/3rds of Guangdong's 21 cities were affected by acid rain.
        • Deforestation:
          • a reduction in vegetation cover causes increased erosion
        • Waterpollution
          • 50% of Guangdong's wastewater is untreated compared to a 40% nationally.
  • Waterpollution
    • 50% of Guangdong's wastewater is untreated compared to a 40% nationally.
  • Management
    • aiming to cut chemical pollution levels by 15%
    • government will impose stricter pollution regualations
