India can save about 270,000 people annually by banning emissions from fuel pollutants such as wood, oats, coal and carcin. This claim has been made in a study, which includes researchers of IIT Delhi. According to the study, without any change in the emissions from the industrial or automobile vehicles, eliminating emissions from these sources of fuel would reduce the level of outdoor air pollution below the country’s air quality standard.
This study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Journal. According to researchers including Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, Saginik Dey, reduction in the use of domestic fuels that contribute to pollution will reduce the air pollution deaths by about 13 percent, which can save about 270,000 people in a year. is.
