The Laboratory which is specialized in soil environmental sciences was established by Ministry of Environmental Protection in 2011. It serves the national environmental strategic needs and stands at the frontier of international soil environmental research. With the core mission to protect soil environment safety, the Laboratory carries out prospective and strategic researches on theories and practical technologies in the area of prevention and control of soil pollution. It provides strategic advices and technical support for the national soil environment protection. Its research field is one of the key subjects of science and technological innovation of the Ministry of Environmental Protection of China.
