Question raised in Lok Sabha on Emission from Thermal Power Plants, 29/11/2016
Question raised in Lok Sabha on Emission from Thermal Power Plants, 29/11/2016. The Government has notified revised Standards for Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) on 07/12/2015, which lays down emission norms for specified pollutants. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has taken steps to control pollution from thermal power stations and reported that all the 164 coal based thermal power plants have provided pollution control systems for control of air and water pollution. However, 19 thermal power plants were found to be non- compliant with prescribed norms. The CPCB has issued directions to the non-compliant thermal power plants.
