Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change notified environment standards for Gensets
23 March 2016 Current Affairs GK: The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change on 22 March 2016 notified new environment standards for Gensets running on Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)/Natural Gas (NG), Diesel with LPG/NG and Petrol with LPG/NG operated in various cities/towns in India.The standards for Gensets running on LPG/NG, or in combination with diesel/petrol have been notified for the first time.The primary aim of the new standards for Gensets is to control air and noise pollution emanating from the operation of Gensets. These standards were recommended by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) after consultations with industries and other stakeholders.In all, the three fuel modes of operation, a three-tier classification have been adopted.These standards will control the air and noise emission profile across different category of Gensets and will be revisited in 4-5 years once air and noise emission quality data and technological details pertaining to Gensets are available.These standards have mandated certification for Gensets in terms of Type approval and Conformity of Production for air emission as well as noise emission. The manufacturers are required to obtain the certification for engine products by empanelled agencies, which will help in regulating the unorganised sector thereby help in curbing the illegal import of Gensets in the country, which were observed to have higher air and noise emission values.
