The NCR cities, including Noida, Ghaziabad and Faridabad, are the world’s ten most polluted cities. The primary reason behind this is the vehicle and industrial pollution in the region. Another reason is that industries in the Delhi region have not shifted to an alternative fuel like PNG/CNG, and most still run on the traditional diesel fuel. Thus, adding more fuel to the fire. The government cannot turn a blind eye to the issue. There is a need for strict rules for witnessing the pollution issue.
Delhi’s Pollution Inequality
The pollution is bias. Rich can buy cleaner rich, but on the other hand, everyone bears the consequences. It is known that Delhi is among the most polluted cities but Delhiites unequally share the issue.
- The well-to-do families have access to air cleaners, air conditioners, and cleaner amenities.
- Lower-income families, on the other hand, spend their lives outdoors. They are more likely to use wood-burning stoves and can’t afford air filters.
- Estimation shows that low-income families inhale 7X high levels of pollutants.
- Thus, it is clear that money helps you buy and breathe cleaner air in Delhi.
What contributes to pollution in Delhi?
Air pollution is pervasive in many parts of India, causing massive public health and environmental crises. Rich or poor, no one gets to breathe clean air in Delhi. A mix of factors affects pollution in the capital city.
- Firstly alarming levels of air pollution in Delhi include the city’s landlocked geographical location and crop burning in neighbouring states (Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan).
- Secondly, according to The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the national capital is home to highly polluted industrial clusters that do not meet limits on air, water or soil emissions.
- Thirdly, Delhi’s transport sector is the primary source of PM2.5 emissions. The vehicular contribution also emits 80 percent of nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide into Delhi’s air.
Steamax- A way to resolve industrial pollution in Delhi
An estimated one million deaths each year, and 980,000 preterm births, are attributed to air pollution from fossil fuels in India. With 3,182 industries located across the Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR), industrial pollution adds about 18.6 per cent to the poor air quality. Steamax introduced Oil to biomass Retrofit kit (OBR), resulting in zero carbon emissions, thus maintaining a sustainable and pollution-free environment.
- The kit is flexible with different kinds of fuels. Users can shift between Biomass and gas or Oil within a few hours.
- The OBR allows oil and gas-fired boilers to use Biomass while keeping the particulate emissions below 80 mg/Nm3.
- OBR has an automatic fuel-feeding system. Manual feeding of biomass results in incomplete combustion, uncontrolled excess air, and lower furnace temperatures, which increase pollution emissions.
- The kit is designed to meet the government emission norms and doesn’t require any change in the pressure parts.
Thus, air pollution originates after burning fossil fuels in industries. The issue needs immediate interventions. So do you wish to destroy this beautiful country? If not, then stand against pollution now! Take a green step with Steamax. Please be free to Contact us for any queries.
