SANYA, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- China should increase the proportion of natural gas in an energy mix currently dominated by coal to cut air pollution, an expert said Sunday.

Compared with coal, the burning of natural gas emits 20 percent less of carbon dioxide and 99 percent of smoke dust, which can substantially improve efficiency and reduce waste, Zheng Xinli, macro economist and president of China Association of Policy Science, told a seminar held in Sanya of southernmost Hainan Province.
