Fresh directions to NTPC over Badarpur plant flyash disposal
NEW DELHI: The DELHI government will soon issue fresh directions to the NTPC-run Badarpur thermal power plant to come up with an action plan for disposing of flyash, a major source of air pollution in summer.
The plant was among those identified by the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) for immediate closure last year, as part of measures to control pollution although later a 210 MW unit there was given permission to operate, while four others were shut down.
"Fresh directions seeking action plan over disposal of flyash are likely to be issued by Wednesday. This will come over and above routine reminders. They will be asked to expedite the process of disposal," a senior government official said.
The report, 'Comprehensive Study on Air Pollution and Green House Gases (GHGs) in Delhi', by IIT-Kanpur has identified soil, road dust and airborne flyash among the major sources of harmful PM 2.5 and 10 (micro respirable pollutants) pollution in summer.
Green body Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), in its analysis of 47 coal-based thermal power plants in the country last year, held the Badarpur plant as one of the "most polluting". The NTPCBSE -0.21 % , however, responded saying it complies with all the environmental and pollution-related norms.
