Gov. launches first fine dust reduction measures of the season

미세먼지 다시 기승...올 가을 첫 예비저감조치

Gov. launches first fine dust reduction measures of the season

 

South Korea kicked off preliminary measures to reduce fine dust air pollution on Monday, the first such steps taken this autumn.

 

A set of measures are being taken in the public sector to cut fine dust in a proactive manner when there is a high possibility that authorities could launch steps to cut the air pollution two days later.

 

Under the measures, civil servants and officials at public institutions in those areas are required to leave their cars at home based on their plates being odd or even numbered.

 

A large portion of the fine dust is believed to blow in from China, though exhaust gas emitted by diesel-fueled cars is also blamed for the matter.

 

The country also launched its special crackdown on vehicle exhaust gas on Monday as part of efforts to reduce fine dust pollution in the winter season.

 

The Ministry of Environment said the crackdown will run until November 15th in Seoul and 16 metropolitan cities including Gwangju.
