China will reevaluate and revise a series of environmental quality standards, including those for air, water, soil and noise, in the next five years, to improve the country's environmental quality.

Zhou Jian, vice minister of environmental protection, made the remarks Thursday at the seventh China International Forum on Environment and Development.

The country will set up or revise standards for pollutant emission limits in some key industry sectors with the major target of protecting people's health, Zhou said.

Special campaigns will be launched to deal with some major existing environmental problems in fields of drinking water, air and soil pollution, garbage disposal as well as heavy metal and chemical industries.

Also on Thursday, China's Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang said that China is willing to make joint efforts with other countries in developing the technology of carbon capture, utilization and storage.

Wan made the remarks at the fourth ministerial meeting of the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF), which involves ministers from countries including the United States, Australia and Britain.
