It was reported billions of investment on solar panel manufacturing plants will be built in Penang and Johor.

Keep a close watch on their environmental impact reports for these billion dollar projects to avoid similar pollution problem in Malaysia.

‘Everyone is angry beyond belief.’

China shut down a solar-panel factory Monday after hundreds of angry residents staged days of violent protests over pollution, the second such incident in as many months.

A large red sign at the entrance to the factory in the eastern city of Haining announced the temporary closure, which came a month after authorities agreed to relocate a chemical plant following protests over pollution fears. The swift decision to shut the solar-panel plant underscores the intensity of official concern over mounting public anger about pollution in China, where an emphasis on economic growth has led to widespread environmental degradation.
