Authorities in the southern Chinese city of Heshan have scrapped plans to build a $6B uranium processing plant following protests by thousands of demonstrators, as well as after pressure from Hong Kong and Macau. The facility would have produced 1,000 tonnes of uranium a year by 2020, enough for half of Chin's nuclear power needs. The installation is the latest industrial project be canceled amid rising concern about Chinese pollution.
