Abstract
Since the reform and opening up of the Chinese economy, the average annual growth rate of GDP has exceeded 9%, and the total number of economies has now jumped to the second place in the world. The rapid development of China's industrialization and modernization, its economic achievements are obvious to all. However, in recent years, environmental pollution has become more and more serious, which has seriously affected the daily activities of local residents. However, after maintaining rapid growth for many years, the Chinese economy has gradually slowed down its growth rate, and the Chinese economy has fully entered the new normal of economic growth. Since the "18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China", the central and local governments have attached great importance to environmental issues and have actively carried out environmental governance and achieved certain results, but they have not fundamentally reversed the problem of environmental degradation. Environmental management has been strengthened in all regions, but the effects of environmental governance are not optimistic, and industrial pollution continues to increase. This paper constructs a mediation effect model of public finance, governance equipment and pollutants, and it uses the latest monthly data of 2013-2018 to draw empirical conclusions that are consistent with China's national conditions. The Chinese government's public finance expenditure has played an obvious role in promoting the upgrading of China's industrial pollutant plastics production. China's environmental regulation and air pressure equipment investment has played a significant part of the intermediary effect in this process.
