“NEW DELHI: A recent study has found that Delhi needs to take very aggressive steps to reduce emissions, including a complete prohibition on crop residue burning in neighboring states, to even bring down people’s average PM2.5 exposure closer to the national safe standard by 2050.
According to ‘Burden of Disease Attributable to Major Air Pollution Sources in India’, released on January 11, even if emission standards of vehicles improve as planned, thermal power plants and industries meet energy efficiency targets as expected, and cleaner technologies replace biomass burning at homes and in brick kilns, Delhi’s PM2.5 exposure will continue to rise till 2050.”
