Since the implementation of “the Action Plan”, The estimated national population–weighted annual mean PM2.5 concentrations decreased from 61.8 to 42.0μg/m3, which represents a 32% reduction.
The MEIC group coupled various models to quantify relationship between household consumption and air pollution-related premature deaths
Urban household consumption in China contributed to 20% of China total anthropogenic PM2.5-related mortality in 2012, and were dominated by indirect emissions arising from products consumption. While rural household contributed 24%, dominated by direct emissions from solid fuel combustion.
MEIC team recently released an Asian emission inventory, MIX, in years of 2008 and 2010. MIX was developed to provide up-to-date model-ready emissions for multiple chemical transport models and climate models.
