China’s Solar Industry Feels The Heat

solarpanel3-08.jpgLuoyang Zhonggui High-Technology Co. in China’s Henan Province is a green energy company that produces polysilicon for solar panels. But, according to a Washington Post article, the company is guilty of dumping silicon tetrachloride, the byproduct of polysilicon production, in a village near the factory.

Polysilicon companies in the developed world spend millions to recycle silicon tetrachloride, but there’s such a severe shortage of polysilicon that the Chinese government is willing to overlook the issue for now, the article reports.

Wang Hailong, secretary of the board of directors for Luoyang Zhonggui, said it is “impossible” to think that the company would dump large amounts of waste into a residential area, WaPo reports.

In general, Chinese factories are moving inland from coastal regions to provinces such as Hunan, Guangxi, Zhejiang and Jiangxi in order to escape tighter environmental scrutiny, according to a recent article from Reuters.
