CSE instrumental in phasing out coal as fuel across NCR

The Commission For Air Quality Management (CAQM) notification takes on board the recommendations of the expert group and states categorically,"phase out use of coal as a fuel from the entire NCR in industrial, domestic and miscellaneous applications (barring use of low sulphur coal only in thermal power plants), towards aiming for an overall improved air quality in the region." CSE has been part of the expert committee that was instrumental in shaping the report. CSE strongly recommended phasing out usage of heavily polluting fossil fuels like coal and mandating cleaner fuels, to the extent possible.
