Beijing: China's environmental authority on Saturday found over 2,800 companies in violation of standards during the first round of air pollution inspection.
Problems included unlicensed production, inefficient dust prevention and lack or malfunction of pollution treatment facilities, a statement said.
Inspectors also found that some enterprises which had been closed for violations illegally resumed production and some reported fake monitoring data.
The share of days with good air quality in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei rose by 14.6 percentage points from a year earlier to 66.3 per cent in March, even though the share declined in the first quarter, MEP data showed.
