Almost 3000 brick kilns in Punjab converted to eco-friendly technology

Almost 3,203 brick kilns in Punjab have been converted to the zig-zag methodology which is an energy and fuel-efficient process to produce better-quality bricks. The Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC) and the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA), in collaboration with the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), have initiated the project.

The to project aims to reduce the hazardous impact of smog on the environment. Around 37.44 percent of brick kilns have been moved the zig-zag technology, which is eco-friendly and turns the black soot emitted by the brick kiln into white smoke with relatively fewer air pollutants.
