"Green development" is a catchphrase that was repeatedly discussed by deputies from Huzhou during the first session of the 13th Zhejiang Provincial People's Congress on Jan 27.

The deputies proposed measures to fight against pollution, including the treatment of waste water in fisheries, the reduction of soil pollution, the recycling of construction waste, and the reduction of emissions from automobile exhaust.

Pan Wenge, Party chief of Yucun village in Anji county, said that the environment should be protected for its visual beauty alone. He said this was in response to the national call that "lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets".

"I can't overemphasize the importance of soil protection," said Wu Jiaping, Party secretary of a nursery stock cooperative in Changxing county.

Sun Pin, a senior engineer from Deqing county responsible for supervising construction quality, stressed the importance of recycling construction waste, such as bricks, concrete and reinforcement steel bars.

"Most of the waste is buried, which wastes precious land resources, and disturbs the ecosystem in the soil as well," Sun noted.

He introduced his county's practice -- two brick factories in Deqing comminute construction waste after classification, then use the materials to make new bricks.

There were also suggestions for saving energy and reducing agricultural pollution, such as "fish farming in rice fields" and "spray and drip irrigation".

As the government work report says, "Lucid waters and lush mountains shall be Zhejiang's calling card" and "Huzhou, Quzhou and Lishui shall become models for healthy ecology and environment." These serve as the guidelines for the greening of Huzhou.
