Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to launch a mega anti-air pollution campaign. A crucial meeting with departments concerned held on Monday.
A meeting of NCR states with Union Environment Prakash Javadekar happened recently. Similarly there are 11 plants around Delhi — in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab . These supposed to retrofit their units with technology called flue-gas desulphurisation to reduce emissions by December 2019. There are more than 1,640 such brick kilns in Uttar Pradesh, 161 in Haryana and 164 Rajasthan. These contribute to Delhi’s air pollution massively.
The new technology talked about involves a liquid formulation prepared using bio-decomposer capsules, fermenting it over 8-10 days and then spraying the mixture on crop residue to ensure speedy bio-decomposition of the stubble.
