A coal-fired power station and Dragon Steel Corp, which are the biggest sources of air pollution in Taichung, should create emissions reduction plans and implement measures to cut air pollution, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Tsai Chi-chang (蔡其昌) said on Friday.

The two facilities should collect straw from farming households, a practice Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) implemented, so that farmers do not have to burn straw, which exacerbates air pollution, he said.
