New Delhi. Smog Tower is being set up in Connaught Place, Delhi. Delhi is the first state in the country to install a smog tower to purify the air. The work of the smog tower being installed at a cost of Rs 20 crore will be completed by August 15. Experts will study its results. The smog tower will draw the polluted air from above and purify the air and release it at a height of 10 meters. Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai inspected the work of this smog tower on Thursday. The minister said that Delhi is the first state in the country to install smog towers to purify the air.
He said that IIT Mumbai, NBCC and Tata Projects are working jointly with DPCC to build the smog tower. If this first pilot project is successful, then more such smog towers will be installed in Delhi.
After inspecting the smog tower, Environment Minister Gopal Rai said that work is being done on a war footing for a 10-point action plan against pollution inside Delhi. This includes anti dust campaign, electric vehicle policy to control vehicular pollution, campaign to bring electric buses inside Delhi etc.
Similarly, to deal with the problem of stubble, use of bio decomposer and replacement of polluted fuel inside Delhi is underway. Also, tree plantation is being done on a large scale inside Delhi. In this way, Delhi government is working continuously in Delhi against pollution.
The height of the smog tower is about 25 meters. This smog tower will purify one thousand cubic meters of air per second and take it out.
Environment Minister Gopal Rai said that such a smog tower has been installed in China, but there is a slight difference between the technology of China and our technology of this smog tower. American technology is being used in the smog tower that we are installing. The smog tower installed in China draws air from below and releases it from above. Whereas in the smog tower we are installing, the process of drawing air is reversed. It will draw the polluted air in from above and purify the air and release it below.
It has 40 fans all around, which will purify the air and release it at a height of 10 meters. It is estimated that its effect will be up to one square kilometer, so that the PM-2.5 and PM-10 which is the polluted air inside the air can be cleaned.
This is a big project of Delhi government. Experts have different opinions about its success. It will be activated after 15th August. Experts will study the results of this tower and the Delhi government will make further strategy based on its success.
