The results show that China's environmental protection industry is still in the growing stage in the current stage, with significant capital pulling, technological innovation driving, and management innovation also plays an important role. There are differences in the performance of water, air and solid waste in the environmental protection industry. In detail, R&D expenses from the government plays the most important role in water pollution prevention and control industry. Technology innovation plays the most important role in air pollution prevention and control industry. And staff play the most important role in solid waste treatment and resource recycling industry.
