Power hub becomes pollution hub
Korba, Chhattisgarh ranks 5th in the ‘critically polluted area’ category according to the Central Pollution Control Board. Why aren't thermal power companies following pollution control mandates? Posted on 14 Aug, 2013 06:32 PM

‘Fly-ash’ refers to fine particles of ash sent up by the burning of solid fuel-like coal. Typically, this is the residue of ash generated by thermal power companies. Due to its toxic nature, the government has mandated that fly-ash must be dumped in ash ponds, which are specially made on vacant lands.
