Delhi Gets First Smog Tower to Combat Air Pollution

Delhi’s first smog tower has been fitted at Lajpat Nagar central market. The 20-feet-tall tower is fitted with exhaust fans to suck in polluted air and can remove up to 80 per cent of the particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10)-the primary pollutant in Delhi’s air. Following high pollution levels in the national capital, the Supreme Court had in November 2019 asked the Centre and the Delhi government to come up with a roadmap on installing smog towers in the national capital region (NCR) to combat air pollution. A separate pilot project has been proposed to consider the efficacy of smog towers and this is being undertaken by the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-Bombay) in collaboration with IIT-Delhi and the University of Minnesota.
