Achievements Made in Environmental Protection
Pyongyang, April 9 (KCNA) -- The DPRK has paid big efforts to environmental protection.

In recent years, efficient apparatuses were installed at environmental observation posts throughout the country to take automatic and real-time measurement of sulfurous acid gas in the air and display, record and transmit those measurements.

A number of sci-tech problems were settled, among them the technique of collecting gas and dust at industrial furnaces and boilers, additive for decreasing exhaust fumes from automobiles, technology and materials for purifying industrial waste water and the recycling of waste materials.

Meanwhile, settling ponds have been reconstructed or repaired and industrial waste water treatment plants cleaned out in different parts of the country to prevent river and marine pollution.

Supreme leader Kim Jong Un made public famous work "On Bringing about a Revolutionary Turn in Land Administration in Line with the Demands for Building a Thriving Socialist Country" that serves as a guideline for environmental protection.

Law on Environmental Protection was adopted in the DPRK on April 9, Juche 75 (1986).
