SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Heilongjiang province will close 14 chemical plants and relocate another five as it moves on to shift chemical production away from populous urban areas, according to a local government website statement.

Meanwhile, 69 other chemical plants will need to be upgraded or re-engineered to prevent safety and pollution risks to residents living nearby.

The province targets to complete the proceedings by December 2025.

China’s central government in September 2017 initiated a massive relocation plan on dangerous chemicals plants, in which small- and medium-sized plants are required to complete the task by 2020 and larger facilities by 2025.
