Air pollution

Air pollution and waste management continue to be areas of concern and in 2016, over 68 per cent of air quality monitoring sites exceeded the annual ambient concentration level of PM2.5, according to a report by TERI. TERI has launched its yearly data directory TERI Energy Data Directory and Yearbook (TEDDY) 2018. The yearbook said air pollution and waste management are still areas of concern. Data from 2015 shows that almost all states experienced high concentrations of PM10, exceeding CPCB standards. In 2016 too, 68.4 per cent of air quality monitoring sites exceeded the annual ambient concentration level of PM2.5, which is even more minute and harmful than PM10, the yearbook said.
