Air quality in most Chinese cities has yet to reach quality standards, with only Beijing and Shanghai fulfilling their plans to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions last year, Economic Information reported.

China, committed to live up to its emission reduction goals, is still facing heavy pressure in this regard. In 2011, coal consumption rose by 320 million tons, some 18 million cars were sold, both resulting in the rise of carbon and nitrogen oxides emissions.

Worse still, city clusters like the Yangtze Delta, Pearl River Delta as well as Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region start to suffer frequent dusty weather accompanied by photochemical smog pollution.
