As many South Koreans point fingers at China for the fine-dust problem South Korea is having, general director of the Global Green Growth Institute Frank Rijsberman has said it does not help lessening the amount of ultrafine dust, and a huge part of the toxic particles are actually produced at home. South Korea's air quality is measured to be at the bottom among 35 member states of the OECD. The Korean government estimates 80 percent of airborne particles under 2.5micrometers come from China when South Korea suffers the most. China denies such a claim as it has introduced drastic measures to lessen its air pollution problem, resulting in reducing one third of the pollutants, a study shows. The Korean government has taken drastic measures such as banning old diesel cars and conducting artificial rain experiments, but it is not enough, the Dutch director-general claimed in an interview done with Korea herald. Even though the Moon Jae-in administration has introduced a series of plans to switch from South Korea's coal-based economy to renewable energy-based, still coal is the most prevalent energy source in the country. The director-general said in the interview that Korea's cheap electricity price is hindering the implementation of such measures.
