On the morning of November 16, 2019, Dr. Zhou Jinfeng, the Secretary-General of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) rushed to the scene of the pollution incident in the Tengger Desert and made a field visit to the No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 emergency treatment sites in the polluted area and communicated with technicians and inspectors on the scene.


Although it was the weekend, all work was in an orderly process. Dr. Zhou combined with the current situation of contaminated sites, expounded his views on the sources of pollution, specific pollutants, the resulting hazards of the “black liquor” in the Tengger Desert, as well as the subsequent treatment.


Near noon, Dr. Zhou went to the Shapotou Desert Research and Experiment Station of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to investigate. The Station was established in 1955 with a focus on restoring and reconstruction damaged ecosystems in arid desert areas. Dr. Zhou and his team visited the Station led by the staff there and learned about the latest scientific achievements in desertification control. During this period, Dr. Zhou, with the assistance of the staff, made straw checkerboard barrier by himself.
