Application Guidebook for the FY 2010 Contributor of the VOC Voluntary Emissions-Reduction Programs

To help reduce air pollution, especially in relation to Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) and photochemical oxidants, the MOE has pushed forward certain measures. These measures involve the formation of policies, legal control and the voluntary approach of businesses to help reduce VOC emissions from stationary sources by around 30% in the period between FY 2000 and FY 2010.

Since 2006, we have recognized the activity of businesses, individuals and groups that have taken the lead in measures that help limit VOC emissions, including the voluntary approach to promote these measures.
Now we are seeking candidates for the award of FY 2010 VOC Voluntary Emissions-Reduction Programs.
Application period is from July 30, 2010, and entries will be accepted until September 15, 2010.
