Smog tower installed by CM Arvind Kejriwal:Delhi
On Monday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal established his government’s first smog tower in the Connaught Place area in an endeavour to combat rising air pollution. Kejriwal said “To fight pollution, we have installed India’s first smog tower in Delhi today. It can help clean the air within a one-kilometre range. It has been installed on an experimental basis and data from it will be analysed by IIT-Delhi and IIT-Bombay”.
Tata Projects Limited (TPL) have built two smog towers. Last year in October Delhi government had accepted the pilot project. As per IQAir, New Delhi was the world’s most polluted capital in 2020. The previous year, New Delhi’s usual annual concentration of PM2.5 in a cubic meter of air was 84.1, the research said, more than twice the level of Beijing, which averaged 37.5 during the year, propelling it the 14th most polluted city in the world.
According to news agency PTI, in the national capital more similar smog towers will be initiated, which suffers from muffling deterioration every year, compelling the city to inhabit, if the pilot project is successful.
