Power plants, brick kilns may miss clean air action plan deadline

A survey by the Centre for Science and Environment indicates nearly 80% plants will not meet the December 2019 deadline for new emission norms.

The study also said that only around one-third of the over 3,000 brick kilns have shifted to Zig-Zag technology that could bring down emission by 70%.

… The study maintained that although owners of over 3,000 brick kilns operating legally in the NCR had agreed to convert to Zig-Zag technology — which would have brought down the emission by 70% — only around one-third of the kilns have shifted to the new technology so far.
