Guidelines for abatement of pollution in brick kiln industry
Clay bricks are produced in Rajasthan in small or cottage scale brick kilns and clamps which operate seasonally. The raw materials in the brick kilns include topsoil, coal, paddy husk, fly ash, wood & locally available agro wastes to some extent. Brick manufacturing process generates emissions discharged from the brick kilns. Brick kiln emissions consists of mainly coal fines and dust particles. There are other activities like mining/quarrying of clay, handling & transportation of raw material/bricks which also contribute to air pollution.
