All over the world environmental activist are confronting Governments! That made me think about air pollution in India. The problem is huge and we read about deaths, ill-effects on health and many other grim stories. But I want to tell you a positive story which has been developing without much media attention for last few years. It is about #IndustrialPollution and how Pollution Control Boards are taking steps to monitor and control it. Did you know that state and central pollution control boards have real-time, online visibility into every pollutant of every industry from specific segments? You heard it right. In 2012, #CPCB started developing emissions quality network and notified that major polluting industries like Cement, Steel, Power etc. must report emissions data in real time. Expanse and features of this network are steadily improving for last 6 years. Gone are the days of periodic manual pollution readings. It is now a continuous process. The problem is huge and multi-layered and there are no quick fix solutions, but the journey has begun. Ascent Intellimation is proud to be part of this journey. Our IoT solution, EnviroConnect is used by over 1000 industries to report online emissions data.
