More than 80,000 Premature Deaths a Year - by Air Pollution from the Coal-fired Thermal Power Plants in India

The emissions from the coal fired power plants in India were analyzed using the CAMx dispersion model over the Sub-continent to estimate the health impacts of the particulate pollution. We estimate up to up to 80,000 premature deaths attributable to these emissions in 2010 and more in the coming years if the regulations are not tightened. More on the Study
