Environmental Norms for Coal Power Plants - Implementation, Monitoring, and Compliance

Thermal power stations are required to install emission control technologies to comply with the 2015 environmental norms as notified by the MoEF&CC. All stakeholders involved in the implementation process face multiple challenges - build knowledge about new pollution control technologies, undertake technology assessment with respect to suitability, performance and costs, track installation progress and finally ensure its continued operation. Thus, there is a need for training regulatory and power plant officials to update them about the 2015 environmental norms implementation and the various aspects surrounding pollution control technologies.

In this regard, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has developed a training programme with the aim of providing participants clarity on various pollution control technologies, their costs and timelines. Through this training programme we seek to develop a knowledge base amongst officials that can facilitate timely and smooth implementation of the norms.

All Government stakeholders involved in 2015 environmental norms implementation process - Central & State Genco officals, Pollution Control Board officials, Environmental Regulators, Electricity Regulatory Commission Officials etc.
