Abstract

By participating in the construction of China's Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) and as the core zone of the GBA, the region (PRD) aims to have the ambient air quality basically reaching the level of the world-class bay areas by 2035. In this study, we developed three scenario strategies (Moderate Scenario (S_M), Intensified Scenario (S_I) and Radical Scenario (S_R)) for the PRD in 2035 taking the average annual PM_(2.5) concentrations in the PRD reaching the world health organization interim target 3 (WHO-III, 15 μg/m³) as the constraint standard. Under each scenario, we formulated the structural adjustment and end-of-pipe control measures to predict the development of industry, transportation and energy in the PRD in 2035. The results show that the total emissions of SO₂, NOx, PM (Particulate Matters) and NMVOCs (Non-methane Volatile Organic Compounds) were 152, 511, 205 and 382kt in the S_M scenario, respectively, and were 114, 436, 177 and 325kt in the S_I scenario, respectively, while they are 77, 344, 143 and 269kt in the S_R scenario, respectively. We also consider the emission reduction of pollutants outside the PRD. In this study, the S_M, S_I and S_R scenarios were combined with different national scenario inventories (DPEC) in 2035 and the WRF-CMAQ model was used to simulate these scenarios. The simulation results show that annual average concentrations of PM_(2.5) in the PRD under the S_M-DPEC1, S_I-DPEC2 and S_R-DPEC3 scenarios were expected to reach 15.1, 14.6 and 14.8 μg/m³, respectively, which just meet the WHO-III standard. In the process of achieving WHO-III target in the future, the government and policy makers can match the most suitable scenario in the study by referring to the actual decline of air pollutant emissions in the main contributing regions outside the PRD under each scenario, so as to obtain the best feasible control strategy in the PRD.
