News:Due to the reconstruction of a company, the environmental protection facilities that need to be built have not passed the inspection and acceptance, and VOCs exhaust gas emissions are abnormal. This illegal case was discovered by the ecological environment brain application platform. Illegal enterprises and their legal representatives have implemented "double punishment".
Description of the case:
On November 7, 2022, the hotspot grid screening of the "Zheli Blue Sky" application platform of Zhejiang Province's ecological environment brain found that a printing company in Hangzhou had abnormal VOCs exhaust emissions. According to this clue, the law enforcement officers of the Yuhang Branch of the Hangzhou Ecological Environment Bureau conducted an on-site inspection of the company and found that the company's two printing machines were in production, using oil-based ink, and the ink exhaust gas in the workshop was relatively heavy. After obtaining relevant bills on the spot, the company's purchase volume of thinner and ink in 2022 exceeded the original environmental protection approval and acceptance volume. It was found that due to business needs, the company rebuilt the printing machine , changed the printing method, increased the amount of raw materials, and added waste gas treatment facilities. It was put into production and use in December 2021, and the environmental protection facilities that needed to be built had not passed the inspection. Tu Mou, the legal representative of the company, is the person in charge who is directly responsible for the above-mentioned behavior.

Second, enterprises should continuously enhance their awareness of the main responsibility of environmental protection. Enterprises are the main body of the market economy, but also the main body of environmental protection, and an important participant in environmental protection. In the new stage when my country's economy is turning to high-quality development, only when enterprises take the initiative to take responsibility for environmental governance and seek development can they have a way out.
The third is that enterprises should enhance their awareness of law-abiding. In this case, although the original construction project of the enterprise has passed the environmental protection approval and acceptance, but after the project equipment, process, etc. have changed, it should have prepared an environmental impact assessment report form before the reconstruction and submitted it to the ecological environment department for approval. And after the project is completed, the supporting environmental protection facilities must pass the completion inspection before they can be put into production. The company failed to fulfill its main responsibility for environmental protection in a timely manner. In the end, both the company and the person in charge were fined. Industrial enterprises should raise their own awareness of environmental protection, learn the law, know the law and abide by the law, improve environmental protection procedures, and avoid illegal activities.
