Export itself means high efficiency. This paper analyzes the nonlinear threshold relation between intensive increase in export, extensive increase in export and industrial environment production efficiency, and proves that there totally exist threshold effects concerningthe promotion role of two export modes in industrial environment production efficiency. Intensive increase in export has no significant relation with industrial environment production efficiency, but extensive increase in export can improve industrial environment production efficiency significantly. Processing trade has the negative influence on industrial environment production efficiency, and becomes the key factor explaining the paradox of export self-selection mechanism. It shows that processing trade is closely related with intensive increase in export, and is not related with extensive increase in export, so extensive increase in export can jump out the trap of the production efficiency puzzle of processing trade, on the contrary, intensive increase in export cannot do it. The self-selection mechanism of extensive increase in export exists, but the self-selection mechanism of intensive increase in export does not work. External mechanisms, for example FDI input, can advance environment production efficiency, but inner mechanisms, such as credit input, R&D and human capital input, totally can not work. It is caused by the erosion effect of human capital resulting from the low efficiency in credit input and excessive R&D investment.
