Abstract

What relationship exists between environmental pollution and economic growth? Is the environmental pollution issue resolved with economic expansion, or will more severe environmental pollution issues result from economic growth? This article ex-amines the relationship between economic growth and industrial three wastes by uti-lizing an environmental Kuznets curve, based on data of economic growth and indus-trial environmental pollution from 2000 to 2020 in Anhui Province. The findings in-dicate that there is an inverted "U" relationship between industrial waste gas emissions and economic growth, economic growth will eventually reduce industrial waste gas emissions; However, there is a "N" relationship between industrial wastewater dis-charge and economic growth. The province of Anhui has now passed the second turning point, industrial wastewater discharge is rising along with the economy. With the expansion of the economy, the output of industrial solid waste has been rising. In order to achieve high-quality green development, Anhui Province must accelerate the industrial structure adjustment and increase the input of human capital. This will better promote the coordinated development of the economy and environment and better meet the needs of residents for a good ecological environment.
