Mr. Ponram explained how the technology would help in reducing pollution and Mr. Manoj Kumar listed the tasks of the Heavy Water Board. Explaining the technology, the company said in a release that coal was a major source of power generation in the country. Flue gas was generated and let into the atmosphere while firing the coal in the boilers. Dust particles and green house gases that posed health hazards were also let into the atmosphere along with flue gas. The new technology kept the emissions under control and helped in meeting the pollution control board norms.
