Goodbye, Charcoal BBQ

The outdoor barbecue is now not allowed at the administrative districts of Dongguan because those areas are designated as the ban-high-polluting-fuel-areas.

On April 12, the Dongguan Environmental Protection Bureau issued a circular on the “Notice on Strengthening the Environmental Management of High-pollution Fuel Prohibited Areas (Consultation Draft).” According to the notice, highly polluting fuels that are banned include coal (using or selling) and its products (including raw coal, pulverized coal, etc.), petroleum coke, oil shale and so on. All high-polluting fuel combustion facilities besides Shajiao Power Plant need to be demolished or changed to use clean energy. Anyone who violates the ban will be fined up to 200,000 RMB. However, what’s the point of barbecue without coal?
