HIGH-CARBON FUEL BAN AFFECTS BARBECUE RESTAURANTS|北市新規 住宅區餐廳不得使用煤炭燃料

Citing the aim of lowering carbon emissions, the government of Taipei City is proposing a Sustainable City Ordinance banning restaurants in residential areas from using fuels other than gas or electricity, saying that such a ban will reduce air pollution. Restaurants serving barbecue and ginger-duck soup that use charcoal fuel will face the most immediate impact. Ginger-duck soup, particularly cooked over a charcoal stove, is an enjoyable treat in the cold weather. However, the government of Taipei City is proposing a Sustainable City Ordinance banning restaurants in residential areas from using charcoal. ==LU SHIH-CHANG Dep. Commissioner, Taipei City Govt. DEP== Currently, we are proposing a regulation limiting permitted fuels to only gas or electricity. These are fuels that are used by ordinary residences as well, because they create less smoke, dust, and odors than charcoal. Barbecue restaurants and ginger duck restaurants that use charcoal will feel the most immediate impact from the ban. The Department of Environmental Protection said that it often receives complaints from people living near clusters of barbecue restaurants, and that the people are unhappy even when restaurants have installed air purification equipment. Some restaurants say that they are willing to comply with such a ban. ==MS. LIU Ginger Duck Restaurant Owner== This is fine, it's what we must do for the future. ==MR. LIU Member of the Public== I think it's fine as long as pollution from the restaurants is controlled. ==MS. CHUEH Member of the Public== I think as long as there are regulations and there's a consensus not to affect air quality for people living near by, [the restaurants] should be permitted with conditions. The public says that the regulations are acceptable as long as they are reasonable. The Department of Environmental Protection said that the ordinance will come into effect as early as 2019, and that bigger restaurants that are subject to the most complaints will be the priority for enforcement. Violators could be fined between NT$30,000 and NT$100,000 and given a deadline for improvements.
