Need for finance, tech & industry-driven approach by thermal plants: Official

New Delhi, Feb 15 (UNI) There is a need for securing finance and technology with an industry-driven approach for complying with the revised guidelines mandating Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) to bring down pollution levels and restrict the discharge of particulate matter, sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxides and mercury in the atmosphere.
''Though compliance to the revised guidelines should have been achieved by now, there is a need for collective action for adhering to the norms by the revised deadline of 2022, said Environment, Forest & Climate Change Secretary CK Mishra at the workshop on 'Implementing New Emission Norms for Power Sector' organised by FICCI on Thursday.
The FICCI workshop aimed at 'Developing a roadmap for implementation of New Emission Norms for Thermal Power Plants'.
The participants discussed on a wide range of issues during the workshop such as availability of right technology, securing additional funding, impact of long shutdown periods, space constraints, issues related to pass-through of additional capex and opex, issues of captive power plants, availability and transportation of limestone, off-take of gypsum, amongst others.
Power Secretary AK Bhalla urged industry to make more efforts for compliance with the revised guidelines. He assured the Ministry of Power's support in resolving all bottlenecks for industries to achieve swift and timely implementation of the new emission norms, according to a statement here on Friday.
