Local environmental protection authority pulled up several factories in suburban Fengxian District for emitting waste smoke and pungent smell that affected residents for a week.

Law enforcement officers have asked a construction factory to dismantle an oil painting workshop before 5pm today in the Shanghai Chemical Industry Zone in the district because the workshop was found discharging waste smoke into the air without any processing.

"A painting factory which failed to provide a certificate on the quality of its wastes and a wood factory have been told to renovate their facilities. They will be inspected again before they can resume operation," said Wang Huiping, deputy director with the Fengxian Environmental Protection Bureau.
