It has been nearly 40 years since environmental protection started in China, during which a relatively complete atmospheric, water, and solid waste pollution prevention and treatment system has become established; relatively speaking, we have not laid solid foundation for soil pollution prevention and are still in want of a soil pollution prevention system. In China, however, many efforts have been made in soil pollution protection, and we have conducted a great many conducive explorations and practices, which can be classified into two phrases:
