Pollution compliance deadline for power plants to be extended

Updated : October 16, 2020 04:07:19 IST

The Ministry of Environment and Forest has in-principal agreed to extend the implementation of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) compliance meant for power plants to comply with pollution norms.

The Power Ministry had sought an extension for compliance as there is a ban on import of equipment from China and this FGD technology is imported from China only.

The ministry had requested for a 2-year extension as sought by the industry on account of limited and uncertain availability of FGD technology.
