In recent years, China’s economy has developed rapidly and the people’s material living standards have continued to improve, but environmental problems have gradually become apparent, which seriously threatens people’s daily lives and production. Therefore, the state is actively constructing industrial pollution control projects, hoping to improve China’s environmental pollution status and achieve green development. Based on data from 31 provinces in China in 2017, this paper finds that the construction of wastewater treatment projects significantly reduces wastewater discharge and has a significant effect on improving water pollution; while the construction of waste gas treatment projects does not significantly improve the status of air pollution. Further research found that coal Consumption has significantly increased the level of air pollution and weakened the role of waste gas treatment projects. At the same time, investment in technological innovation has significantly improved the state of environmental pollution.
