Shougang Iron and Steel Group, Beijing's worst polluter and greatest industrial icon, is packing up and leaving town, to help clear the air for Beijing's Olympic Games in 2008.

Beijing has pledged to clean up its polluted air and restore its once-legendary blue skies for the Olympics, which are China's coming-out party to the world. It is spending billions to clear plants like Shougang's from the capital.
