On the occasion of "June 5" World Environment Day, according to the latest information released by the Environmental Protection and Afforestation Committee of Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), in the past year, the Chinese PLA as well as the Chinese People's Armed Police Force (APF) achieved significant results in strengthening the military ecological and environmental protection and construction, controlling the emission of major pollutants and preventing and controlling environmental pollution.

After the Ministry of Environmental Protection of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the General Logistics Department (GLD) of the Chinese PLA jointly issued the Opinions on Further Promoting the Military-civilian Integrated Development of Environmental Protection last year, the stationed units around the Bohai Sea have constructed a number of projects in compliance with the State Council's Overall Plan for the Environmental Protection of Bohai Sea to treat wastewater, solid wastes and ship pollution and have achieved effective treatment on various key pollution sources.

The PLA has strengthened the operation and management of 500-plus wastewater treatment stations, with the daily capacity of wastewater treatment increased to 400,000-plus tons, and the daily recycled water reuse reaching 70,000-plus tons. The PLA troop units stationed in the national key river basins and areas have reached the target accomplishment rate of 80% for the domestic wastewater treatment, and 40% for recycled water reuse.
