A ir pollution is one of the major challenges that Industries in India are struggling with. However, majority of the times, the discourse on this challenge is dominated by the large-scale industrial sectors and thus, effectively leaving out the small and medium scale industries behind
The recent source apportionment studies have listed small and mediumscale industries as one of the major contributors of air pollution. Lack of data, use of dirty fuel, inefficient small boilers and lack of cleaner technology are some of the prominent issues that the sector is grappling with.
Huge amount of coal is burnt in this sector without any pollution mitigation in place, thereby, resulting in drastic air pollution in the long run. If environmental performance of small and medium scale industries has to be improved, then technological innovation, switch to cleaner fuels and common combustion facilities are the need of the hour.
Small and medium scale industrial sector contributes large share in our economy and employs large number of people. Therefore, the sector needs to be revisited and reformed to make it more environmentally compliant.
Understanding the relevance of the subject, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has decided to conduct a one-day workshop focusing on three major aspects - first, transition to cleaner fuels and common combustion facilities and second, the role of technology in controlling pollution from small and medium scale industries, third is fugitive emissions - detection and control.
The workshop will have multi-stakeholder representation from small and medium scale sectors, industrial associations, industrial corporations, regulatory authorities, industrial consultants, and others.
