With the acceleration of industrialization and urbanization, water, gas, soil, solid waste and other pollution problems are becoming more and more serious, showing a spread trend from urban areas to rural areas. After raising the quota at the national level, the environmental pollution control in major cities and regions of the country has achieved some periodical results, while the rural areas lag behind slightly. In order to make up for the shortcomings of pollution control in rural areas, good policies from the central government to the local government have been continuously implemented since 2018. Nowadays, with the overwhelming coverage of national policies, provinces and cities across the country have launched corresponding measures.
Specifically, several major aspects of rural pollution prevention and control include: drinking water source control, rural waste treatment and solid waste recycling, poultry and livestock manure treatment, water supply and sewage treatment, soil remediation and water-saving irrigation and other fields. Under the existing conditions, the rural environmental protection market has begun to speed up, and entered a high-speed development stage with immense potential in the future. Many people mignt overlook one thing, that is, the infrastructure nature of environmental protection itself. According to the 13th Five-Year Plan of various ministries and commissions and the classification of rural infrastructure, it is
conservatively estimated that by 2020, the scale of rural infrastructure can exceed 4.5 trillion yuan. Among them, the proportion of environmental protection projects will not be too small from the most concerned rural sewage treatment and garbage treatment, which are most concerned by the industry. According to the plan, sewage treatment and garbage treatment are listed as the main direction of rural environmental improvement. With the development of the renovation action, the two major subareas will provide huge market space. According to calculation, the market space of rural sewage treatment is between 500 billion and 1.5 trillion yuan, and the market space of rural garbage treatment during the 13th Five-Year Plan period is also more than 50 billion yuan.
