The Centralized Pollution Control System can be described as the application of centralized prevention and control measures to similar pollution sources within an area, based on the premise that the obligation of the polluter to prevent and treat pollution shall never be less, and in which the effectiveness and economies of scale can be greatly enhanced while improving the environmental quality. In recent years, the Centralized Pollution Control System was mainly employed in the following categories, including central heating, centralized treatment of wastewater, and centralized disposal of solid waste and hazardous waste.
