Kiln owners meet Union ministers


Kiln owners meet Union ministers

Muktsar, July 11

Members of the Punjab Brick Kiln Owners’ Association recently met Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar in Delhi and handed him a memorandum regarding their problems. They had first met Bathinda MP-cum-Union Minister for Food Processing Industries Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who also spoke to Javadekar on the issue.

Davinder Rajdev, chairman, Punjab Brick Kiln Owners’ Association, said, “We apprised both ministers about the problems of brick-kiln industry regarding adoption of new technology i.e, zig-zag system. We stressed on the use of agriculture waste as fuel to make red bricks. Even the agriculture waste has cleared the tests of the Central Pollution Control Board and the National Green Tribunal too approved the results at various kilns in Rajasthan and found that suspended particulates emissions were low in kilns using agri-waste than kilns adopting zig-zag technology.” He said even farmers were earning by selling their agri waste, otherwise they would be compelled to burn this in fields, which would be harmful for the environment. — TNS
