Workshop: Improving Environmental Performance of Industries in Udaipur

Date: October 10, 2023
Timing: 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi, in collaboration with the Rajasthan State Pollution Control Board (RSPCB), is organizing a workshop on “NCAP: Improving environmental performance of Industries in Udaipur “ on October 10, 2023.

Udaipur city is one of the non-attainment cities, under National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) launched by MOEF & CC in 2019. Action plan has also been prepared and implementation is being carried out to reduce particulate matter concentration by 20 to 30 per cent by 2024. However, in spite of all the actions, pollution level of the city has not improved considerably. As per the study conducted by CSE in 2021 “Industrial air pollution assessment of major districts of Rajasthan” mineral grinding and stone crushers are two major sectors associated with fugitive emission. In addition to this, inadequate state of industrial infrastructure such as roads has been identified as a contributing factor to the city’s air pollution.

Therefore, CSE is conducting this workshop with the aim to address the pressing issue of air pollution in Udaipur, specifically focusing on fugitive emissions originating from major industrial sectors and the inadequate industrial infrastructure. Through this workshop CSE attempts to improve the environmental performance of industries, which will reduce the pollution loading into the atmosphere and simultaneously aligns with NCAP’s objective of clean air

The primary agenda of the workshop is to showcase the best practices of the sector and discuss various options and pathways with the stakeholders to reduce fugitive emissions and enhance industrial infrastructure to mitigate air pollution effectively. The event will have experts from regulatory authorities, the industrial development department (RIICO), industrial association, industries, industrial consultants and financial institutions (DIC).
