Andhra Pradesh PCB Shuts Down Five Polluting Tyre Plants

The APPCB (Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board) has shut down five polluting tyre pyrolysis plants across the State after they were spotted disobeying the environmental regulations as declared in the Environment (Protection) Act 1986. The board took this step after the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) announced an order on Wednesday to close such units in 17 states and two union territories. The National Green Tribunal (NGT) found in its research that they cause an extreme level of pollution.

“Out of the total 38 tyre pyrolysis units across the State, we sent notices to 18 prior to receiving CPCB’s orders. We also gave them 11 directions to bring down pollutant emission within permissible levels. The unit management was asked to satisfy these 11 suggestions within a period of six months,” stated BSS Prasad, APPCB chairperson.

The notice that was issued by CPCB Chairman SPS Parihar stated “In exercise of powers vested under Environment (Protection) Act 1986, directions are hereby issued to you (state pollution control boards) to close down all such pyrolysis units in your State or UT which are not complying as on date with consent conditions and SOP of the Ministry of Environment. You are also directed to carry out strict vigilance and monitoring in complying industries to ensure continued compliance of consent conditions and the SOP of the ministry.”

APPCN has said that they have taken remedial steps before getting the CPCB order. The states and union territories that fall under the notice of CPCB are Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Assam, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Kerala, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Uttarakhand.
