Domestic LPG is Blamed for Pollution in Delhi

In November, 2010, following the Better Air Quality conference in Singapore, I posted a note "Is LPG bad for air quality in India" based on the presentations and posters displayed during the conference. The Center for Science and Environment released a review report for the source apportionment study, which blames the LPG as the main problem for the air quality in cities and downplays the role of transport sector (for direct and indirect emissions). Read the full report by CSE. Below is a video clip on CNN-IBN from the press release event by Ms. Anumita Roychowdhury @ CSE.

Excess the full report here - the summary report for the six cities particulate pollution source apportionment studies from Delhi, Mumbai, Kanpur, Bangalore, Chennai, and Pune.
