05 July 2019 Current Events Green Initiatives at Delhi Airport and DTC

In a move to reduce pollution and improve the environment in the national capital, some unique initiatives are being taken in Delhi. In a first, India's busiest airport Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport is in the process to make the airport ‘single-use’ plastic free by the end of 2019. Single-use plastics, referred to as disposable plastics, are commonly used in packaging and include items intended to be used only once before they are thrown away or recycled. Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) has said the initiative is in line with Central government’s commitment to eliminate single-use plastic items from the country by 2022. While another move for the national capital is that the city government will be adding to the public transport system a fleet of hydrogen enriched compressed natural gas(HCNG) buses. The transport sector contributes around 28-30% to Delhi’s pollution during winters, and the city already has more than 10 million vehicles. These ‘green’ buses are expected to improve fuel economy and reduce carbon footprint, but there will be probably be no reduction in the emission of nitrogen oxide(NOx).
