With the world’s biggest population and economic growth rates of around 9% for the past 25 years, China represents a huge market for environmental technologies and services. Rapid economic development over the past two decades has placed a massive environmental burden on urban and rural areas in China with its associated ecological impact. According to Chinese sources:
• Around 35% of the total territory is affected by acid rain.
• Over 40% of China’s river basins have been polluted and 25% of the Chinese population drink contaminated water.
• Four hundred out of China’s 667 cities face water supply shortages.
• Over 35% of people in urban areas breathe polluted air.
• Only 32% of all hazardous solid waste is currently treated.
