A study on synthetic regional environmental policies for utilising biomass resources
Due to the principles of mass balance, there is a trade-off between regional water pollution and global warming. However, local governments in charge of water pollution control usually try to reduce water pollution loads without thinking of the influences on global warming. This study aims to formulate a simulation/evaluation model that reflects material balance and evaluates the regional environmental policies with utilising biomass resources. In the simulation, introduction of biomass utilisation plants was chosen as an effective tool to reduce environmental pollutants and substitution occurs between nitrogen monoxide and Total Nitrogen during the emission of nitrogen into the environment. These results implies that promotion of biomass resource utilisation can improve both the environment and economy and policy making for water quality improvement should also take into account the effects on global warming of policy measures. Eliminating vertically divided administrative functions becomes essential for resolution of global environmental problems.
