Sonbhadra. More than 200 Mirzapur-Sonbhadra brick kilns, which have become a threat to the environment, are now being closed. The High Court ordered the strict closure of those brick kilns that NOC did not remove from the Pollution Control Board. The board of directors issues a notice to mark and close such ovens. Notices have been sent to more than fifty furnace operators to date. He has received strict instructions not to operate the furnace under any circumstances. If this is ignored, action will be taken against them by registering a case. This arrangement of the High Court not only breaks the backs of the furnace operators, it also creates a major challenge for the building owners. The rapidly increasing pollution is a cause for concern. Therefore, all possible measures are taken to prevent pollution. In addition to setting up new plants, the focus is also on installing new technological systems to reduce environmental pollution in industrial facilities. A similar guideline was issued in 2012 for brick kilns. It was clearly stated that any brick kiln that does not comply with this norm should be closed immediately. The NOC of the Pollution Control Board was also decisive. The furnace operators were given instructions by repeated letters on behalf of the department. Operators used to get relief from the government and sometimes by filing a petition with the court, but now the Supreme Court has made it clear that any brick kiln that does not comply with the rules will not be allowed to operate. By order of the court, the immission control department has started to mark such brick kilns and to issue notifications. In more than two hundred brick kilns in both districts, the rules are broken. On behalf of the immission control office, their operators are instructed to close the furnace by giving notice. After this rigor, there is panic among the furnace operators.
This is the effect when the ovens are closed
Approximately 250 brick kilns are in operation in Sonbhadra and Mirzapur districts under the Sonbhadra Regional Pollution Control Office. Most brick kilns do not meet the prescribed standards. So your closure is almost certain. If the brick kilns are closed, an existential crisis threatens the hundreds of workers who work here with the operators. The people who have the building built will have an even greater impact. The supply is also reduced due to the stoppage of brick production. In such a situation, it is natural for the rate to increase.
This is the standard for a brick oven:
* No furnace may be operated within five kilometers of the municipal utilities or the municipal council. Outside, the standard distance is about five hundred meters from an area with 100 to 150 people and one kilometer from an area with more than 150 people.
* 1km from hospital, school, religious site, public building, etc., 5km from wildlife sanctuary and historical monument.
The furnace must not be placed at a distance of two hundred meters from the railroad tracks and three hundred meters from NH and SH.
The disposal of the coal ash should be double-walled to protect against noise pollution.
Elevator technology required
To make high draft brick ovens, the entire oven, except for the chimney, must be rebuilt. It must have 2 fans and two generators. As a result, the dust released during brick production stays on the ground and coarse particles do not get into the air. According to the new technology, the pollutant load of a brick kiln will currently only remain a third. Approximately 40 lakh rupees are spent to install this system. This system can only be installed by those whose kilns run on their own land.
According to the order of the High Court, around two hundred brick kilns will be closed. Two teams were formed to deliver notifications to the furnace operators. Notes are inserted where no operators are available. A lot of time was given to adhere to the norm. Now these brick kilns will no longer be able to work under any circumstances. Radheshyam, Regional Officer, Pollution Control Board.
The Pollution Control Board has information about the arrangement to close the ovens without a NOC. If the furnace is closed, there will be a crisis in front of the workers and operators. Brick prices will go up. With a view to the public interest, the organization is trying to remedy the situation. The litigation is also going on. A way will soon be found.
